Abstract

Fear is an adaptive component of the acute "stress" response to potentially-dangerous (external and internal) stimuli which threaten to perturb homeostasis. However, when disproportional in intensity, chronic and/or irreversible, or not associated with any genuine risk, it may be sympto...read more

Neurohumoral Compensatory Mechanisms

The activation of neurohumoral compensatory mechanisms is a common physiological phenomenon in heart failure in order to make up for a failing heart, which will usually have a deteriorating effect on overall health condition. Discover the latest research on Neurohumoral Compensatory Mechanisms here.

Sonic Hedgehog Signaling

The Sonic Hedgehog signaling pathway regulates developmental processes including cell patterning and differentiation and plays a role in tissue repair and regeneration. Here is the latest research on this complex signal transduction pathway.

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.

Panic Disorders

Panic disorders include overwhelming panic attacks that are often spontaneous and not triggered by a particular event or situation. Treatment often includes pharmacotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy. Discover the latest research on panic disorders here.

Neuronal Circuits for Anxiety

Anxiety is controlled by numerous and complex neuronal circuits. Discover the latest research on Neuronal Circuits for Anxiety here.

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.

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.
