Persistence pays off – research breakthrough after eight years

People with a rare disorder known as familial startle disease often fall like a log when they are startled by something unexpected. The cause for this exaggerated startle response is a defective ion channel found in certain neurons in the spinal cord. This rare (...)[more]

The nuts and bolts of thought

Sensations and thoughts arise from the transmission of electrochemical signals through the nervous system. Neurons release molecules called neurotransmitters that dock onto receptor proteins on the surfaces of neighboring cells. [more]
