Katarzyna SocałaPiotr Wlaź

Abstract

Orexins A and B are hypothalamic neuropeptides involved in a number of physiological and behavioral processes. They work via OX1 and OX2 receptors. Recent studies revealed that orexins may be implicated in seizure activity. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to evaluate the inf...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.

Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) affects brain areas beyond the temporal lobes due to connections of the hippocampi and other temporal lobe structures. Discover the latest research on TLE here.

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.

Gfral Neurons Reduce Food Intake

GFRAL is a receptor for growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF15). These proteins play a role in regulating inflammatory pathways, as well as cell repair, apoptosis, cell growth, and body-weight regulation. Here is the latest research on the role of GFRAL-expressing neurons in reducing food intake.

Tay-Sachs Disease

Tay Sachs disease is a neurodegenerative disorder due to β-hexosaminidase A deficiency caused by mutations in the HEXA gene. Discover the latest research on Tay-Sachs disease here.

Functional Connectivity Networks

Functional connectivity networks represent specific patterns of synchronous activity and differ between healthy subjects, stages of consciousness and across disease. Discover the latest research on functional connectivity networks here.

Asprosin

Asprosin is a fasting-induced hormone produced in the white adipose tissue to stimulate the hepatic release of glucose into the bloodstream. Discover the latest research on this protein hormone here.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by unprovoked and recurrent seizures. Discover the latest research on factors and mechanisms that underlie epilepsy here.

Neural Control of Overconsumption

Overconsumption is associated with activity of a complex network of neuroregulators affecting areas such as drug addiction and binge eating. Discover the latest research on neural control of overconsumption here.

Hippocampus & Feeding

Human and animal data suggest that the hippocampus plays many roles in regulating food intake. Discover the latest research on hippocampus and feeding here.

Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy

Progressive myoclonic epilepsy (PME) is a heterogeneous group of epilepsies characterized by myoclonus seizures and progressive neurological symptoms. Discover the latest research on PME here.

Neuropeptides

There are >50 peptides released by neurons that function as neuromodulators, neurotransmitters, neurohormones, and hormones. Here is the latest research on the systemic function of neuropeptides in the body.

Follicular T Helper Cells

Follicular t helper cells are an important subset of helper t-cells which help to the formation of germinal centers and b-cells differentiation. Discover the latest research on follicular t helper cells here.

Reflex Epilepy

Reflex epilepsy is a type of epilepsy caused by a certain stimulus. The most common reflex epilepsy is photosensitive epilepsy, brought on by flashing lights. Discover the latest research on reflex epilepsy here.

Lymphopenia

Lymphopenia has been associated with autoimmune pathology and it has been suggested that lymphopenia-induced proliferation of naive T cells may be responsible for the development of immune pathology. Here is the latest research.


Electroconvulsive Therapy

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a well-established effective treatment strategy in treatment-refractory depression. Discover the latest research on ECT here.

Neuronal Identity

Neuronal identity is important for defining the end result of stem cell differentiation through neuronal developmentor for regenerative medicine. This could involved transcription factors used to drive induce pluripotent stem cells towards the neuronal lineage. Discover the latest research on Neuronal Identity here.

Neural Circuits Regulating Feeding

Neurons within the central nervous system receive signals that regulate feeding and metabolism. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neural circuits in regulating feeding.

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.

Neural Circuits in Stress & Feeding

Studies have reported important roles for subpopulations of gabaergic cells in the regulation of both feeding and arousal. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neural circuits in stress and feeding.

Angelman Syndrome

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. 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.
