Abstract

Cocaine dependence is a complex psychiatric disorder involving both genetic and environmental factors. Several neurotransmitter systems mediate cocaine's effects, dependence and relapse, being the components of the neurotransmitter release machinery good candidates for the disorder. Pre...read more

Copy Number Variation

Copy number variation refers to alterations in the number of gene copies or DNA sequences. It can be a duplication, amplification, or a deletion event. Here is the latest research.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

Vascular Headaches

Vascular headache is an outdated term to describe certain types of headache which were thought to be related to blood vessel swelling and hyperemia as cause of pain. Headaches formerly classified as vascular headaches are now identified as migraines, cluster headaches, and illness-related headaches. Discover the latest research on vascular headaches here.

Psychoactive Drugs

Psychoactive drugs are psychotherapeutic drugs used to modify emotions and behavior in the treatment of psychiatric illnesses. Here is the latest research on psychoactive drugs and the pathways they modulate.

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in presynaptic neurons in response to neural activity, diffuse across the synaptic cleft, and bind specific receptors in order to bring about changes in postsynaptic neurons. Here is the latest research.

Molecular Organization of Synapses

This feed focuses on the molecular organization of synapses between two nerve cells, synaptic signal transduction, and synaptic vesicles. Here is the latest research on organization of synapses.

Reward Processing

This feed focuses on neural structures and processes associated with incentive salience, associative learning, and positively-valenced emotions. Here is the latest research.
