What the brain's spontaneous activity can tell us about behavior and our mental states.
Institute of Neuroscience
As part of a major drive for excellence in basic research in the new millennium, the Chinese Academy of Sciences founded the Institute of Neuroscience (ION) on November 27, 1999. The ......
Modulation of itch signal processing by dopaminergic neurons in the ventral tegmental area
A recent study published in Journal of Neuroscience demonstrated that dopaminergic neurons in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) play important roles in modulating itch signals. This work was performed by researchers in Dr. SUN Yan-gang’s Lab at the Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences.....
PDGFRβ Cells Rapidly Relay Inflammatory Signal from the Circulatory System to Neurons via Chemokine CCL2
A recent study published in Neuron demonstrated in vivo that PDGFRβ-expressing mural cells of the brain vasculature function as initial sensors of external insults, and secrete chemokine CCL2 to relay the signal to neurons in multiple brain regions, to increase excitatory synaptic transmission and total neuronal excitability. ....
