No More Binge Eating: Discover the Signaling Pathway in the Brain That Controls Eating – Neuroscience News

Summary: AgRP neurons in the hypothalamus control the release of endogenous lysophospholipids, which helps control the excitability of neurons in the cerebral cortex and stimulate food craving. source: University of Cologne A group of researchers has developed an entirely new approach to treating eating disorders. The scientists showed that a group of neurons in the …

Molecular mechanisms behind specific learning and memory – Neuroscience News

Summary: The results reveal the molecular mechanism of acetylcholine in learning and memory. source: Fujita Health University Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have lower levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) in their brains. Donepezil, an AD medication, increases ACH levels in the brain and improves learning deficits associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Now, researchers have identified …
