  • plasma
  • Thus, the origins of plasma and cerebrospinal fluid beta-endorphin may be different, with the former secreted from the hypophysis and the latter from nervous tissue. (uniss.it)
  • University of Tu
  • Laughing with your friends releases endorphins in your brain, and the more opioid receptors you have, the more you tend to laugh, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Turku and Aalto University in Finland and the University of Oxford in England. (psychcentral.com)
  • Our results highlight that endorphin release induced by social laughter may be an important pathway that supports formation, reinforcement, and maintenance of social bonds between humans," said Professor Lauri Nummenmaa from the Turku PET Centre at the University of Turku. (psychcentral.com)
  • Finnish researchers at the University of Turku have revealed that exercise-induced endorphin release in the brain depends on the intensity of the exercise. (utu.fi)
  • A recent study conducted at Turku PET Centre, University of Turku, shows that the popular high-intensity interval training (HIIT) leads to endorphin release in the brain, which might alleviate the physical and emotional stress caused by the high-intensity exercise. (utu.fi)
  • researchers
  • Researchers have been investigating alpha -endorphin since the 1970s, but are still not sure exactly how the polypeptide works or how it specifically affects the body. (fsu.edu)
  • gamma
  • hello, i'm doing a project on endorphins and have had a lot of trouble finding specific information on the levels of molecular structure (primary, secondary etc..) even when i've narrowed down my searches to specific alpha-,beta-,gamma- queries, i've been unable to find anything. (biology-online.org)
  • Some studies have indicated, however, that the polypeptide has antipsychotic effects on a certain category of patients suffering from schizophrenia, while others suggest that gamma-endorphin may act to help regulate blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • stress
  • If the person survives the trauma, the withdrawal from the endorphins can produce emotional distress that can contribute to post-traumatic stress disorder or alcohol addiction (Volpicelli et al. (talkorigins.org)
  • With a dearth of serotonin, however, stress, anxiety, frustration and aggression can result - as is sometimes the case with too few endorphins. (wisegeek.com)
  • Global function of β-endorphin is related to decreasing bodily stress and maintaining homeostasis resulting in pain management, reward effects, and behavioral stability. (wikipedia.org)
  • depression
  • Mainstream doctors often prescribe certain foods, supplements or activities to elevate endorphins and serotonin in people suffering from manic depression or schizophrenia . (wisegeek.com)
  • pain threshold
  • In another experiment, the pain threshold caused by the endorphin rush was much higher in both male and female volunteers when they watched comedy rather than drama in groups. (psychcentral.com)
  • We conducted a double-blind administration of placebo and naltrexone (an endorphin antagonist) before groups of strangers danced in synchrony and measured both pain threshold and sense of belonging to the group after dancing. (springer.com)
  • 2014 ), and active participation in musical activities increases pain threshold, a common proxy measure of endorphin uptake (Dunbar et al. (springer.com)
  • spike
  • The next level of lightweight spike starts with the Endorphin and ends with quick approaching finish lines. (onlineshoes.com)
  • Upper Details: A single layer of mesh and Flex Film makes the Endorphin the lightest spike on the market at only 2.8oz. (onlineshoes.com)
  • However
  • However, endorphins can produce a "high" that is both healthy and safe, without the risk of addiction and overdose. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • However, endorphin levels vary between individuals, so results will also vary. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Acytelation of the N-terminus of β-endorphin, however, inactivates the neuropeptide, preventing it from binding to its receptor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Registered users on Naturalmotion's website can attain a free learning edition of Endorphin, however it lacks the feature to export the animation to popular CAD Software, a feature only available in the full version of the program. (wikipedia.org)
  • laughter
  • For example, laughter is highly contagious, and the endorphin response may thus easily spread through large groups that laugh together, said Professor Robin Dunbar of the University of Oxford. (psychcentral.com)
  • resistance
  • The structure of β-endorphin in part accounts for this through its resistance to proteolytic enzymes, as its secondary structure makes it less vulnerable to degradation. (wikipedia.org)
  • substance
  • Further research is needed, but if γ-endorphin does indeed possess such characteristics, the substance could eventually be utilized as a useful means of medical treatment. (wikipedia.org)
