Here is the latest research on barrel cortex, a region of somatosensory and motor corticies in the brain, which are used by animals that rely on whiskers for world exploration.
Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.
Auditory perception is the ability to receive and interpret information attained by the ears. Here is the latest research on factors and underlying mechanisms that influence auditory perception.
Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.
G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), the largest family of integral membrane proteins, participate in the regulation of many physiological functions and are the targets of approximately 30% of currently marketed drugs. Here is the latest research.
GPCRs are membrane receptors implicated in the pathophysiology of various diseases. Several GPCRs, including GLP-1 receptor, glucagon receptor, and adiponectin receptor, are also involved in metabolic regulation and homeostasis. Here is the latest research.
G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are membrane receptors implicated in the pathophysiology of various diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders, infectious diseases, and cancer. Here is the latest research on GPCR signaling pathway.
Hereditary optic atrophy is a mitochondrially inherited disease that results in bilateral subacute loss of central vision due to degeneration of retinal ganglion cells and the optic nerve. Here is the latest research.
Interoception refers to the sense of physiological state of the body. It can be both conscious and unconscious. Here is the latest research on this topic.
Microglia are found throughout the brain and spinal cord and are the resident macrophages of the CNS. There have been investigations into the involvement of microglia in somatosensory sensory circuits within the spinal cord and associated diseases. Here is the latest research on microglia and spinal somatosensory circuits.
Gustatory system is the sensory system responsible for the perception of taste and flavour, which determines feeding and appetitive learning behaviors. Taste receptor cells encounter chemicals in foods and transmit this information to the gustatory neurons, which convey it further to the gustatory relay nuclei in the lower brainstem.
