Thus, events involved in neuroteratogenicity in the mammalian brain are paralleled by "pre-nervous" morphogenetic anomalies in the developing sea urchin (42-48).
The analysis published today reveals high consistency of gene expression among different regions of the human cortex--the outer rind of the mammalian brain responsible for sophisticated information processing--specifically the temporal and visual cortices.
There were previous reports that secretin appears in the mammalian brain, but most scientists dismissed them as products of experimental artifacts, notes Andrew Leiter of the New England Medical Center in Boston.
The McGovern Institute at MIT, a leading research and teaching institute committed to advancing understanding of the human mind and communications, announced today that Christopher Moore, one of its Principal Investigators has authored a paper published in the current issue of Neuron Magazine that outlines the discovery of a new sensory map in a mammalian brain.
Washington, February 18 ( ANI ): Rats can't usually see infrared light, but they have "touched" it after Duke University neurobiologists fitted the animals with an infrared detector wired to electrodes implanted in the part of the mammalian brain that processes information related to the sense of touch.
The PDE1 family of enzymes, including PDE1A, PDE1B, and PDE1C isoforms, are calcium/calmodulin-dependent, dual-function (cAMP/cGMP) PDEs that are expressed at high levels in mammalian brain.
Founded as an innovative and unprecedented resource for neuroscientists around the world, the nonprofit Allen Institute -- and its inaugural project the Allen Brain Atlas -- will combine the disciplines of neuroscience and genomics to create a map of the mammalian brain at the cellular level.
Once we mastered how this happened in birds, we set about how to replicate the process in the adult mammalian brain," he added.
London, June 25 ( ANI ): Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have created in the laboratory dish the cells that make up the blood-brain barrier-the filter that governs what can and cannot come into contact with the mammalian brain.
Glia account for 90 percent of the cells in a mammalian brain, but until recently scientists focused mainly on the supportive role that glial cells play in helping mature neurons survive.
This small region of the mammalian brain controls the daily, or circadian, rhythms of animals, including people.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Researchers found that a naturally occurring protein secreted only in discrete areas of the mammalian brain may act as a Valium-like brake on certain types of epileptic seizures.
