Sleep-Wake Cycle Controlled by Salts in the Brain

Danish research is behind a new epoch-making discovery, which may prove decisive to future brain research. The level of salts in the brain plays a critical role in whether we are asleep or awake. This discovery may be of great importance to research on psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia and convulsive fits from lack of sleep as well as post-anaesthetization confusion, according to Professor Maiken Nedergaard.

Co-Expression of Alternative Gene Products Helps Neurons Take Shape

A new study from the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology (CDN) at IoPPN, King's College London carried out in collaboration with the Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore and the Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, Genentech, USA suggests that neurons often co-express functionally distinct alternative products from the same gene.

Brain Cells Divide the Work to Recognize Bodies

People with more friends have higher pain tolerance, Oxford Specific regions of the brain are specialized in recognizing bodies of animals and human beings. By measuring the electrical activity per cell, scientists from KU Leuven, Belgium, and the University of Glasgow have shown that the individual brain cells in these areas do different things. Their response to specific contours or body shapes is very selective.

Chances are it's due to other factors. For instance Extraversion is positively associated with high pain tolerance (r ~.40) and is moderately related to the number of friends. the relationship is even stronger if you look at one of the extraversion facets such as Sensation Seeking. The relationship between pain tolerance is higher.

Rosacea Linked to Increased Alzheimer's Risk

A new study has uncovered an increased risk of dementia--in particular Alzheimer's disease--in patients with rosacea. Importantly, the risk was highest in older patients and in patients where rosacea was diagnosed by a hospital dermatologist.

Breast Milk Linked to Significant Early Brain Growth in Preterm Babies

Preemies fed mostly breast milk had larger brains by their due dates than those who consumed small amounts or none.

The findings will be presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies 2016 Meeting between April 30 and May 3 in Baltimore, MD.

The Hidden Role of Nervous System Cells

A microscope about the size of a penny is giving scientists a new window into the everyday activity of cells within the spinal cord. The innovative technology revealed that astrocytes, cells in the nervous system that do not conduct electrical signals and were traditionally viewed as merely supportive, unexpectedly react to intense sensation.

The research is in Nature Communications. (full open access)
