A Love-Hate Relationship?: "Feel-Good" Oxytocin May Have a Dark Side - Scientific American
The hormone promotes warm social feelings but can also promote in-group favoritism and ethnocentrism, suggesting there is a lot we don't know yet about the "cuddle chemical"
Insulin and Type 2 Diabetes
This video, created by Nucleus Medical Media, shows type 2 diabetes, a condition in which the level of sugar in the blood is too high. The animation begins by showing the normal physiology of food abs...
Introduction to SNARE Proteins
We discuss the SNARE proteins involved in the docking of synaptic vesicles and in the release of neurotransmitter in response to a rise in intracellular calcium.
How Does Big Ben Keep Accurate Time?

Researchers Make Link Between Genetics, Aging
University of Georgia scientists have shown a hormone instrumental in the aging process is under genetic control, introducing a new pathway by which genetics regulates aging and disease. Previous stud...
The Origin Of A Species | University Of Oxford
New animal species form when groups of animals become isolated and as a result, begin to separate through evolution (a process known as speciation). When these isolated populations meet later, they mi...
Stem Cell Breakthrough Could Put An End To Daily Insulin Injections For Diabetics
People with type 1 diabetes have to inject insulin daily, and it often results in pain, redness, swelling, and itching at the injection site. But this could soon be a thing of the past, thanks to a ne...
Empathy More Common In Animals Than Thought
A new study reveals that prairie voles console loved ones who are feeling stressed -- and it appears that the infamous 'love hormone,' oxytocin, is the underlying mechanism.
Diabetes: Conversion Of Skin Cells To Produce Insulin Could Lead To New Treatments
Scientists have converted human skin cells into the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. The development could lead to new treatments for patients with diabetes using tissue transplants derived fr...
Artificial Pancreas System Aimed At Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Aspirin Targets Key Protein In Neurodegenerative Diseases
new study finds that a component of aspirin binds to an enzyme called GAPDH, which is believed to play a major role in neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s d...
DNA Repair Protein BRCA1 Implicated in Cognitive Function And Dementia
Researchers from the Gladstone Institutes have shown for the first time that the protein BRCA1 is required for normal learning and memory and is depleted by Alzheimer’s disease. BRCA1 is a key protein...
Alzheimer's: Newly Identified Molecular Mechanism Could Lead To Treatment
Synapse loss is a hallmark of the early stages of Alzheimer's. Now, researchers have found how these brain cell connections are destroyed in the disease. During the early stages of Alzheimer's disease...
