Nicotine rush hinges on sugar in neurons

...dy provides the first detailed look at part of the mouse nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR), one in a large and important group of molecules, known as ion channel proteins, that allow signals to pass between neurons. The results reveal an important role for the sugar molecules in such proteins. “...

Agent slows aging in mice

...ist Richard A. Miller reports early results from a mouse study his lab and two others are conducting for the National Institute on Aging. The study, now in its fourth year, will test as many as two dozen possible anti-aging agents in animals in the next five years. The other centers are the University of T...

The project is the first large-scale study to document the relationship of the dimensions of the semicircular canals to locomotion. These structures are filled with a fluid...

Turn-ons and turn-offs for neurons

...es which had been inactive in neurons during early mouse development become functionally silenced in the adult brain. Intriguingly, Hasan and colleagues found that gene silencing in the adult brain can be avoided by making neurons produce high levels of gene-specific activators which facilitate “un-silenci...

This has great significance for the future of brain research, said Dr. Mizrahi, since "the structural and functional complexit...

Adult stem cells from human cord umbilical cord blood successfully engineered to make insulin
