Abstract

alpha1-Adrenoceptors and alpha2-adrenoceptors were measured by radioligand binding to homogenates of brain samples obtained at post-mortem from suicides with a retrospective diagnosis of depression, and age and gender-matched controls. Suicides were subdivided into those who had been fr...read more

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Suicidal Behavior

Suicidal behavior encompasses the deliberate attempt of self-harm and injury with the intent to kill oneself. Compounded with other psychiatric disorders including borderline personality disorder and depression see higher rates of suicide attempts. Here is the latest research on suicidal behavior.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.

Parkinson's Disease: Animal Models

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement. This feed focuses on animal models used for Parkinson's disease research.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

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.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.
