Demonstration of synaptic input from prefrontal cortex to the habenula i the rat

Brain Research
R M Greatrex, O T Phillipson


Using lesion-degeneration techniques at the EM level, it is confirmed that a pathway from prefrontal cortex projects to the lateral habenula, and further that it makes synaptic contacts predominantly with dendrites of neurons in the medial sector of the lateral nucleus. The available neuroanatomical evidence points to a role for habenula as a regulator of the activity of the meso-cortical dopamine pathway by the interaction of this cortico-habenular pathway with a wide variety of limbic inputs in the medial sector of lateral habenula.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
