Modeling the restless brain

...ics approaches, which use extensive anatomical and physiological data sets to describe the macacque's brain, allowed Sporns and Honey to collect data on all the activity that occurred during their simulations. Sporns said he wants to create a similar large-scale computer model of the human brain that will allo...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

...hen scavenged by zinc sulfide. Or there could be a physiological reason. Perhaps the bacteria use the protein to sequester their sulfide waste product, which could otherwise accumulate and entomb the bacteria or interfere with their cellular machinery. Think of it as trash pickup at the nanoscale. Regardless, the ...

Research finds that circadian rhythms dominate all life functions

... be acidic are a target for pHLIP. “Acidosis is a physiological marker of many diseases ?and pHLIP feels acidity,?said Reshetnyak. “Therefore, pHLIP could also be used for monitoring of disease development and therapeutic outcomes. It might play very important role in the study of arthritis, ischemia and stroke.?...

Nitric oxide: Key to cardiovascular and pulmonary function and drug effectiveness

...that it demonstrates how two of the most pervasive physiological systems -- G-protein coupled receptors and nitric oxide -- come together to influence one another," said Erin Whalen, Ph.D., who spent six years focusing on the link between the two biological systems. Whalen is a postdoctoral fellow in the laborator...

To sleep, perchance to dream: New insight into melatonin production

...ythm (the roughly-24-hour cycle around which basic physiological processes proceed). Normally, melatonin production is inhibited by light and enhanced by darkness, usually peaking in the middle of the night. Melatonin's expression pattern is mimicked by a protein called AANAT, which is a key enzyme in the melaton...

Stanford-led study closes in on genes that may predispose some people to severe depression

Some 10 to 15 percent of people suffer from severe depression at some point in their lives, and 3 to 5 percent have it more than once. Women are twice as likely to develop depression as men, although the reas...

Mutation improves memory, may lead to memory-enhancing pill

...these data strongly support the notion that, under physiological conditions, a decrease in eIF2a phosphorylation constitutes a critical step for the activation of gene expression that leads to the long-term synaptic changes required for memory formation," the researchers concluded. "These findings also raise the i...

How appetite-stimulating brain cells work overtime during fasting

The molecular underpinning of heat production, or thermogenesis, in brown fat is the activation of mitochondrial uncoup...

Imaging techniques permit scientists to follow a day -- or four -- in the life of a cell

...vement and growth of cells are critical for normal physiological processes, and--when perturbed--can result in negative outcomes such as tumor formation. Understanding how live cells function is therefore invaluable for molecular and cellular biologists, and advanced techniques to visualize cells in action are of ...

Mimicking how the brain recognizes street scenes

Comparing ecological field data with laboratory investigations of the eelpout's physiology, the authors were able, for the first time, to demonstrate a direct link between tem...

Wired for sound: How the brain senses visual illusions

"We show physiological evidence that visual and auditory stimulation might not be processed separately, then merged together, as previously assumed, but that an almost-simultaneous integration of the sensations may actually take place in the brain." The UCSD scientists ...
