Touching: Skin cell to nerve cell communication uncovered - Technology Networks


Technology Networks
For such a widely occurring phenomenon, surprisingly little is known about the mechanism underlying how touch signals are conveyed to the brain,” says lead author Francie Moehring, senior neuroscience graduate student in the laboratory of Cheryl Stucky ...

Neuron cascade may be akin to neutral selection in evolution - Ars Technica

"I am sorry, but your brain suffers from avalanches" is a diagnosis that should be a thing. The cure should involve a St. Bernard digging neurons out from under piles of neurotransmitters. Unfortunately, everyone's brain suffers from avalanches. Indeed ...

Scientists reveal secrets of 'anti-aging' hormones - FierceBiotech


FierceBiotech
They discovered that alpha-Klotho helps FGF23 bind to its receptor and become active. "By showing that all the ways in which [alpha-Klotho] was supposed to protect organs come instead from its ability to help FGF23 signal, we have shed new light on the ...

Auditory Processing Disorder
Australia

People who have normal hearing actually hear far more than they perceive. Where hearing is a function of the ear, auditory processing - listening - is a function of the brain. Auditory processing describes the way the brain assigns significance and meaning to the sounds in the environment. Effective auditory processing involves a relatively high speed of information transfer. It also requires a good attention span, a well-functioning memory, and
