Brain's reward circuit activity ebbs and flows with a woman's hormonal cycle

...circuitry includes: the prefrontal cortex, seat of thinking and planning; the amygdala, a fear center; the hippocampus, a learning and memory hub; and the striatum, which relays signals from these areas to the cortex. Reward circuit neurons harbor receptors for estrogen and progesterone. However, how these h...

Imaging pinpoints brain regions that 'see the future'

...ember the past, they're also not at all good about thinking about what they might be doing tomorrow or envisioning any kind of personal future," McDermott explains. They comprehend time and can consider the future in the abstract sense (e.g., that global warming is a concern for the future), but they cannot v...

Common gene version optimizes thinking -- but with a possible downside

Microbes start immune response by sneaking inside cells

Why aren't humans furry? Stone-Age moms could be the answer

Shedding new light on proteorhodopsin

... to replace respiration was still unknown. "Our thinking was that if you had a system that could harvest energy from two different sources and you knocked out one of those sources then you would probably maximize the alternative energy source," Liphardt said. "Think of it like a capacitor. If a capacitor ...

Infection detectives use disease 'fingerprints' to track common infections in children

Cells use 'noise' to make cell-fate decisions
