The Genexpress IMAGE knowledge base of the human brain transcriptome: a prototype integrated resource for functional and computational genomics. (1/6161)

Expression profiles of 5058 human gene transcripts represented by an array of 7451 clones from the first IMAGE Consortium cDNA library from infant brain have been collected by semiquantitative hybridization of the array with complex probes derived by reverse transcription of mRNA from brain and five other human tissues. Twenty-one percent of the clones corresponded to transcripts that could be classified in general categories of low, moderate, or high abundance. These expression profiles were integrated with cDNA clone and sequence clustering and gene mapping information from an upgraded version of the Genexpress Index. For seven gene transcripts found to be transcribed preferentially or specifically in brain, the expression profiles were confirmed by Northern blot analyses of mRNA from eight adult and four fetal tissues, and 15 distinct regions of brain. In four instances, further documentation of the sites of expression was obtained by in situ hybridization of rat-brain tissue sections. A systematic effort was undertaken to further integrate available cytogenetic, genetic, physical, and genic map informations through radiation-hybrid mapping to provide a unique validated map location for each of these genes in relation to the disease map. The resulting Genexpress IMAGE Knowledge Base is illustrated by five examples presented in the printed article with additional data available on a dedicated Web site at the address http://idefix.upr420.vjf.cnrs.fr/EXPR++ +/ welcome.html.  (+info)

High-linoleate and high-alpha-linolenate diets affect learning ability and natural behavior in SAMR1 mice. (2/6161)

Semipurified diets incorporating either perilla oil [high in alpha-linolenate, 18:3(n-3)] or safflower oil [high in linoleate, 18:2(n-6)] were fed to senescence-resistant SAMR1 mouse dams and their pups. Male offspring at 15 mo were examined using behavioral tests. In the open field test, locomotor activity during a 5-min period was significantly higher in the safflower oil group than in the perilla oil group. Observations of the circadian rhythm (48 h) of spontaneous motor activity indicated that the safflower oil group was more active than the perilla oil group during the first and second dark periods. The total number of responses to positive and negative stimuli was higher in the safflower oil group than in the perilla oil group in the light and dark discrimination learning test, but the correct response ratio was lower in the safflower oil group. The difference in the (n-6)/(n-3) ratios of the diets reflected the proportions of (n-6) polyunsaturated fatty acids, rather than those of (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain total fatty acids, and in the proportions of (n-6) and (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids in the total polyunsaturated fatty acids of the brain phospholipids. These results suggest that in SAMR1 mice, the dietary alpha-linolenate/linoleate balance affects the (n-6)/(n-3) ratio of brain phospholipids, and this may modify emotional reactivity and learning ability.  (+info)

Cloning of a bovine orphan transporter and its short splicing variant. (3/6161)

We have isolated a cDNA (bv7-3) encoding a member of the Na+,Cl(-)-dependent transporter family and its short splicing variant (bv7-3s) by screening a bovine retina cDNA library. Sequence analysis revealed that bv7-3 encodes a protein of 729 amino acids and is a bovine homologue of the rat orphan transporter v7-3-2. bv7-3s contains 265 amino acids, sharing 252 N-terminal amino acids with bv7-3. Both mRNAs for bv7-3 and bv7-3s were detected in nervous system by Northern blot analysis. In immunofluorescence analysis in transfected HEK 293T cells, myc-tagged bv7-3 was mainly detected on the plasma membrane, whereas myc-tagged bv7-3s showed a pattern of intracellular membrane staining.  (+info)

Peri-operative changes in echocardiographic measurements and plasma atrial and brain natriuretic peptide concentrations in 3 dogs with patent ductus arteriosus. (4/6161)

Peri-operative changes in echocardiographic measurements and plasma levels of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) were investigated for 1 month in 3 dogs with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Post-operative left ventricular end-diastolic dimention and fractional shortening decreased in all cases. Pre-operatively increased plasma ANP concentrations reduced dramatically after the operation. Peri-operative changes in plasma BNP levels had slightly S-shaped curves in all cases. These observations suggest that post-operative responsiveness of ANP and cardiac function are rapid in comparison with cardiac morphological changes, and BNP has a different pathophysiological significance from ANP in dogs with PDA.  (+info)

Prediction of the coding sequences of unidentified human genes. XII. The complete sequences of 100 new cDNA clones from brain which code for large proteins in vitro. (5/6161)

In this paper, we report the sequences of 100 cDNA clones newly determined from a set of size-fractionated human brain cDNA libraries and predict the coding sequences of the corresponding genes, named KIAA0819 to KIAA0918. These cDNA clones were selected on the basis of their coding potentials of large proteins (50 kDa and more) by using in vitro transcription/translation assays. The sequence data showed that the average sizes of the inserts and corresponding open reading frames are 4.4 kb and 2.5 kb (831 amino acid residues), respectively. Homology and motif/domain searches against the public databases indicated that the predicted coding sequences of 83 genes were similar to those of known genes, 59% of which (49 genes) were categorized as coding for proteins functionally related to cell signaling/communication, cell structure/motility and nucleic acid management. The chromosomal locations and the expression profiles of all the genes were also examined. For 54 clones including brain-specific ones, the mRNA levels were further examined among 8 brain regions (amygdala, corpus callosum, cerebellum, caudate nucleus, hippocampus, substantia nigra, subthalamic nucleus, and thalamus), spinal cord, and fetal brain.  (+info)

Functional integrity of mitochondrial genomes in human platelets and autopsied brain tissues from elderly patients with Alzheimer's disease. (6/6161)

To determine whether pathogenic mutations in mtDNA are involved in phenotypic expression of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the transfer of mtDNA from elderly patients with AD into mtDNA-less (rho0) HeLa cells was carried out by fusion of platelets or synaptosomal fractions of autopsied brain tissues with rho0 HeLa cells. The results showed that mtDNA in postmortem brain tissue survives for a long time without degradation and could be rescued in rho0 HeLa cells. Next, the cybrid clones repopulated with exogenously imported mtDNA from patients with AD were used for examination of respiratory enzyme activity and transfer of mtDNA with the pathogenic mutations that induce mitochondrial dysfunction. The presence of the mutated mtDNA was restricted to brain tissues and their cybrid clones that formed with synaptosomes as mtDNA donors, whereas no cybrid clones that isolated with platelets as mtDNA donors had detectable mutated mtDNA. However, biochemical analyses showed that all cybrid clones with mtDNA imported from platelets or brain tissues of patients with AD restored mitochondrial respiration activity to almost the same levels as those of cybrid clones with mtDNA from age-matched normal controls, suggesting functional integrity of mtDNA in both platelets and brain tissues of elderly patients with AD. These observations warrant the reassessment of the conventional concept that the accumulation of pathogenic mutations in mtDNA throughout the aging process is responsible for the decrease of mitochondrial respiration capacity with age and with the development of age-associated neurodegenerative diseases.  (+info)

The neuropsychopharmacology of phencyclidine: from NMDA receptor hypofunction to the dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia. (7/6161)

Administration of noncompetitive NMDA/glutamate receptor antagonists, such as phencyclidine (PCP) and ketamine, to humans induces a broad range of schizophrenic-like symptomatology, findings that have contributed to a hypoglutamatergic hypothesis of schizophrenia. Moreover, a history of experimental investigations of the effects of these drugs in animals suggests that NMDA receptor antagonists may model some behavioral symptoms of schizophrenia in nonhuman subjects. In this review, the usefulness of PCP administration as a potential animal model of schizophrenia is considered. To support the contention that NMDA receptor antagonist administration represents a viable model of schizophrenia, the behavioral and neurobiological effects of these drugs are discussed, especially with regard to differing profiles following single-dose and long-term exposure. The neurochemical effects of NMDA receptor antagonist administration are argued to support a neurobiological hypothesis of schizophrenia, which includes pathophysiology within several neurotransmitter systems, manifested in behavioral pathology. Future directions for the application of NMDA receptor antagonist models of schizophrenia to preclinical and pathophysiological research are offered.  (+info)

ATP inhibition of a mouse brain large-conductance K+ (mslo) channel variant by a mechanism independent of protein phosphorylation. (8/6161)

1. We investigated the effect of ATP in the regulation of two closely related cloned mouse brain large conductance calcium- and voltage-activated potassium (BK) channel alpha-subunit variants, expressed in human embryonic kidney (HEK 293) cells, using the excised inside-out configuration of the patch-clamp technique. 2. The mB2 BK channel alpha-subunit variant expressed alone was potently inhibited by application of ATP to the intracellular surface of the patch with an IC50 of 30 microM. The effect of ATP was largely independent of protein phosphorylation events as the effect of ATP was mimicked by the non-hydrolysable analogue 5'-adenylylimidodiphosphate (AMP-PNP) and the inhibitory effect of ATPgammaS was reversible. 3. In contrast, under identical conditions, direct nucleotide inhibition was not observed in the closely related mouse brain BK channel alpha-subunit variant mbr5. Furthermore, direct nucleotide regulation was not observed when mB2 was functionally coupled to regulatory beta-subunits. 4. These data suggest that the mB2 alpha-subunit splice variant could provide a dynamic link between cellular metabolism and cell excitability.  (+info)

My mother used to have an ingenious explanation for her bad brain chemistry attacks. She called them her feelings, and when she would experience one, shed interpret it as a kind of telepathic message: someone she loved was in distress. She would then call each of us and ask how we were. Ive had one of my feelings, shed say. Are you alright? If nothing was wrong, she would try to find something, however minor, that would serve as distress so her bad feeling could be explained. At times, I would find myself coming up with something so that shed be appeased and stop worrying. It wasnt until recently that I realized what her feelings were. The other day, for the first time in a long time, she mentioned shed had one of her feelings. I tried to tell her it was just brain chemistry, but she didnt seem to like that explanation very much, preferring to see herself as special, I suppose, as endowed with extraordinary psychic abilities. I cant say I blame her there. Bad brain chemistry is ...
I started this project about 20 years ago, when depression and other bad moods were making my life miserable. A man I met during that time (now my husband) convinced me that I had to change; a therapist who offered medication scared me into finding a way to change. The result was my theory of brain chemistry, which goes beyond merely labeling mood disorders as physical phenomena and finding medication to fix them. I seek to explain bad brain chemistry in a way that shows the disorder to be rational and naturally human, and dealing with it something that a human can do through rational thought ...

What do you most remember about being eighteen? For me, it is the impulsiveness. Cruising into tattoo parlors and blurting out little-considered ideas for permanent ink designs and various piercings. Jumping off a pier in Greece only to realize Id have to swim quite far to find an exit, all the while with boats headed my direction. Often speaking before Id considered my words. It was a time of unmitigated youth - which I now think of as synonymous for poor decision making and routine embarrassment.. I would need quite a few martinis to consider doing many of the things I did without thought or question when I was eighteen. What has changed? Are we simply older and wiser, grown more cautious by our experiences? I would posit that if that were the only mechanism of change, growing up shouldnt have taken quite so long. An alternative explanation is that the very pathways of our brain chemistry have changed. Impulsiveness, it turns out, has a lot to do with brain chemistry. For those people whose ...

Exposure to stress is a primary factor in the development of mood disorders. Stress is able to cause mood disorders because one of the downstream effects of the presence of high levels of stress hormones is the production of inflammation in the brain. This inflammation causes the generation of free radicals, and this can cause oxidative stress within the brain tissues that can subsequently alter brain chemistry. Antioxidants are protective of mood disorders because they can prevent the changes to brain chemistry associated with oxidative stress. In one study researchers administered an antioxidant formula containing β-carotene, ascorbic acid, pyridoxine, zinc sulphate and sodium selenite to subjects admitted to hospital for heart disease treatment. The results of the study showed that after 2 years of taking the supplement, the depression in the subjects was significantly lower than a similar group that had been administered a placebo, suggesting that antioxidants were an effective ...

This is the 25th in a new series of weekend posts taken from the presentations at the Salk Institutes Beyond Belief: Enlightenment 2.0.. I have placed an index of essays in this series in an introductory post, Enlightenment 2.0: Introduction.. Patricia Churchland spoke at the Beyond Belief conference last year, and began her discussion the same way that she began this one. She attempted to draw a link between morality and brain chemistry by showing that there are certain physical characteristics in the brain associated with pair bonding versus promiscuity in certain species of mice. From this, she attempted to imply that there was a relationship between brain chemistry and the morality of pair bonding versus promiscuity in mice.. I hold that it is obviously the case that different behaviors ultimate rest on different features in the brains of different agents. I have little doubt of the ability to take behavioral dispositions and trace them, at least theoretically to facts about the ...
The estimated global prevalence of hepatitis C (HCV) infection is approximately 3% (170 million individuals). In Canada there are an estimated 240,000 people infected with HCV. The current study addresses the hypothesis that neurocognitive and neurochemical abnormalities may occur in individuals with HCV-infection who do not have liver cirrhosis or vasculitic neuropathy, and this may result from a direct effect of HCV on the Central Nervous System (CNS). The purpose of this study is to assess whether infection with the Hepatitis-C virus is associated with changes in thinking skills and brain chemistry, in patients who do not have liver cirrhosis. In addition, we are examining whether such changes in thinking skills and brain chemistry are reversed by antiviral treatment. We are also studying whether factors such as fatigue and depression have an effect on thinking skills in people with Hepatitis-C. In order to take into account the impact of having viral hepatitis, we will be comparing the ...

Rule 1 is pretty obvious. You just have to practice it until it is a habit. But we have often been surprised by the drivers who do not follow rule 1 and set off a long, involved, colorful stream of profanity directed at others. This isnt helpful to paddock culture and generally isnt met with open arms. It is embarrassing when Rule 2 bites you. Rule 2 comes into play with surprising regularity. Racing is a complex activity, and what you see from the cockpit often ist more than a fraction of what is going on. As an example, we recently were part of an incident with five drivers. They were in cars A, B, C, D and E, running closely together (1-3 feet apart). We were in car E. Entering a high speed turn, car E bumped car D while slightly offset, and car D spun and lost a few positions. The driver and crew chief of car D were very unhappy with the driver of car E. Unkind words were said. But upon further review, we see that car B bumped car A, causing him to start a spin in front of car C. Car C ...

Back in black and white TV days I remember seeing a short film about Jewish students studying the Torah. And they were most of them nodding. When I looked it up today it turns out to be called Shuckling. ( A tough to find on google there is a comic turtle called Shuckle and oyster shucking, A lot of noise but it is there. ). When I thought about this gentle nodding it seemed that it might change your brain chemistry by refreshing the fluid in the brain. Shake things up a bit. But it might be a bit exhausting, if you were not reading something exciting.. So a robot to shake the reader gently might be a product that would sell to the fringe..

They believe that our religious experiences are really just blips in your brain chemistry that you mold to fit around your personal belief system.. In their quest to figure out just how our minds work, they have mapped out what happens in different areas of the brain during certain experiences and compared them with the responses of others in order to determine what physical changes in our brain take place in conjunction with certain emotional or psychological experiences. The patterns they are observing are intriguing but predictably very controversial. One scientist of neurotheology unabashedly summed up their beliefs with the declaration that, instead of God creating our brains, our brains created God.. Pascal Boyer (the author of the above statement) stated that the brain is an organ of complex architecture that by its very ...

In their quest to figure out just how our minds work, they have mapped out what happens in different areas of the brain during certain experiences and compared them with the responses of others in order to determine what physical changes in our brain take place in conjunction with certain emotional or psychological experiences. The patterns they are observing are intriguing but predictably very controversial. One scientist of neurotheology unabashedly summed up their beliefs with the declaration that, instead of God creating our brains, our brains created God.. Pascal Boyer (the author of the above statement) stated that the brain is an organ of complex architecture that by its very ...
NO serves multiple functions in maintaining brain chemistry in non-HD brains. Depending on its concentrations in local tissues, NO can be both neuroprotective - protecting nerve cells from damage - and neurotoxic - toxic to nerve cells, possibly causing apoptosis or cell death. Since NO serves many different purposes, scientists are uncertain whether increases in NO levels would be helpful or harmful to the brain, and how much of an effect it would have. Therefore, using dietary arginine as a treatment for HD - which would increase levels of NO - could be either beneficial or harmful.. Overproduction of NO can be toxic to nerve cells. NO combines with superoxide, a very unstable and reactive molecule, to make peroxynitrite. Peroxynitrite is able to alter proteins, fragment DNA, and interfere with the energy metabolism of cells- all of which are toxic to nerve cells and contribute to HD.. On the other hand, NO can be neuroprotective. Because NO production depletes free radicals like superoxide ...
But if those of us with healthy brains started gobbling pramipexole, would we turn into pathological givers, too? When they start taking pramipexole, their brain chemistry changes: dopamine begins flowing again. As a result, the reward Generous black man can run at full throttle, allowing people to seek out and feel pleasure, at least from certain activities-though not necessarily the same ones that they enjoyed before.. What those activities are gambling, buying aftershave, writing about totools depends on the idiosyncrasies of the individual and his particular brain damage. And because pramipexole can inhibit impulse control, the person keeps returning to the pleasurable activity over and over. Giving, it seems, might become compulsive in some people because they crave the rush of dopamine that accompanies it-a rush that might be similar to the spike in dopamine levels that gets some people hooked on drugs such as cocaine and amphetamines.. In a real sense, pathological givers might be ...
Thus far, the reenvisioning of AD has included two important tenets. The first is that Alzheimers must be triggered by an injury. The second is that the establishment of unique type of chronic inflammation is required to set the brains chemistry on the path to AD. To fully capture the neurobiology of the disease, however, a third tenet must be introduced: the progression to full Alzheimers disease requires a functional discontinuity between the physiology of the brain cells in early and late stages of the disease. This dramatic change of state results in a new normal biology, primed toward neurodegeneration and dementia. The exact meaning of this transition in biological terms is only beginning to be understood, but some of its consequences are already becoming apparent. It is envisioned as a one-way cellular door; once a cell crosses the threshold, it can never return to its earlier state.. The best example of this change-of-state concept can be found in the paradoxical association of ...

A very common toxin from bacteria is called the Lipopolysaccharide. This toxin does trans-locate from the intestinal tract to the liver and it is known to cause liver damage as well as damage to other parts of your body. Often the term endotoxin is used in reference to toxins generated from bacteria. It is known that Lipopolysaccharides, endotoxins, cause changes to the immune system, the lymph system, brain chemistry, the kidneys, the heart, the arteries and veins, reproductive hormones as well as the liver.. A great research study by Seki and colleagues proved that the intestinal bacteria/ microflora was the main source of Lipopolysaccharides entering the liver through the portal hepatic vein and this proved to be an important prerequisite for the development of liver fibrosis during chronic liver injury.1 This research is very important in showing how your liver health and your Microbiome are integrally related. For more detailed information on how the gut Microbiome affects your brain ...
One way to look after your health is to make sure that you eat a healthy diet.

Nutrition affects feelings.. Or perhaps I should say health affects feelings, including not only what we take into our bodies or do not take into our bodies, but also sleep, or lack of it, and disease, can play havoc with our feelings. I come from a family with a genetic predisposition for low seratonin levels, a compound in the brain which affects moods and feelings. When I was younger, especially for the span of time I was pregnant with our children and nursing, all the nutrition I was taking in was going into our children, leaving not enough for me. I struggled with depression, irritability, and a low coping threshold, which made life miserable for me and everyone else. When I finally figured out I was deficient nutritionally, and addressed that, my moods, mood swings, and feelings dramatically improved. I still need to take a daily vitamin and mineral supplement to keep my brain chemistry in optimum balance.. Where was God for those eight to ten years when I was miserable? Right with me, ...

The possible role of environmental risk factors associated with the development of disease include use of pesticides, consumption of contaminated well water, exposure to herbicides, and proximity to industrial plants or quarries. The most accepted theory establishing the link between these factors and degeneration in the brain is that of oxidative stress, which is hypothesized to play a very crucial role in the dopaminergic neurotoxicity. They predominantly contribute to the mitochondrial dysfunction, which is responsible in the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) to cause oxidative stress by causing a change in the electron transport chain of mitochondria, eventually leading to cell death. However it is only after the long term exposure of these substances to the body that the features of Parkinsons disease are manifested. The role of oxidative stress (increased levels of free radicals) in PD has been extensively studied. The utilization of energy in the brain can lead to increase in ...
The search for that answer led me to my first peyote ceremony, on a mountaintop on the Navajo reservation at Lukachukai, Ariz.. While Fred Harvey, an 87-year-old roadman, or high priest, warmed up his voice, members of his family prepared the peyote, a cactus that induces visions when ingested. Using peyote to touch the spiritual world has been central to the Navajo religion for hundreds of years.. Andy Harvey, a ceremony participant, said peyote serves as a mediator between the human world and the divine.. Sometimes we ask the peyote to help us cleanse the illnesses away and cleanse our mental being, our spiritual being, he said. And we believe thats what peyote does, too. Thats why we call it a sacrament, a sacred herb.. At 9 p.m., 32 of us crawled into the teepee; for the next 11 hours, the young men drummed, the roadman prayed, and everyone but me ingested a lot of peyote. Sometime around midnight, the subject of the ceremony - a Navajo woman named Mary Ann - spoke up.. I want to ...

It is widely known in the medical community that some damage from traumatic brain injury can last for years, with symptoms for just as long, but a Canadian researcher is now saying that damage can last for decades.. Dr. Maryse Lassonde, neuropsychologist and scientific director of the Quebec Nature and Technologies Granting Agency, has been treating and studying TBI for over 15 years. At a presentation at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston, she told the crowd, Even when you are symptom-free, your brain might still not be back to normal.. Lassondes tests involved having athletes perform visual and auditory tasks combined with mapping their brain with electroencephalography, the recording of electrical activity in brains. She also tested brain chemistry.. In her tests, Lassonde found that brain waves remain abnormal for young athletes for up to two years after TBI, and atrophy had occured within the motor pathways of the brain after the ...
The brain can change and adapt based on our thoughts and emotions, and in turn, how we perceive stimuli. Highly malleable and changeable, the brain can actually form new synapses and pathways based on new knowledge, skills, or thought processes. In other words, what we think matters greatly, as these thoughts literally create our brain chemistry, and therefore, our reality. The mind contains great power, as demonstrated by the following study.. A study from the Baylor School of Medicine published in 2002 in the New England Journal of Medicine took patients with severe knee pain and divided them into three groups. Most surgeons dont believe in placebo effects as a substitute for surgery, but this study proved them wrong. For the first group, the surgeons shaved the damaged cartilage in their knees. For the second group, the surgeons flushed out the knee joint, removing anything that might cause inflammation. People with severe arthritis in their knees typically go through one of these two ...

The annals of forensic psychiatry are full of stories involving normal individuals who had serious medical problems affecting the brain, and more importantly the frontal lobe area of the brain. In general the horror stories culminating in death and mayhem start with tragic failures of the medical establishment to diagnose in a timely manner the existing structural damage and the neuro-chemical imbalance affecting the frontal lobe, until one day without any prior warning, seemingly very normal caring individuals turn into violent bloodthirsty monsters. Forensic psychiatrists, in courtrooms all over the world, on a daily basis testify and insist to judges and juries, that even minor damages to the brain structure due to concussions, mini strokes, direct blows to the head, infections etc… affect the balance of brain chemistry, and cause large and unexpected changes in behavior. Forensic psychiatrists reconfirm daily to the legal establishment the maxim researchers have discovered in hundreds of ...
Scientists have identified problems in a connection between brain structures that may predispose individuals to hearing the voices that are a common symptom of schizophrenia. Researchers linked the problem to a gene deletion. This leads to changes in brain chemistry that reduce the flow of information between two brain structures involved in processing auditory information.…
Taurine helps alter brain chemistry to help with alcoholism. By ingesting taurine (and forms of it such as the drug acamprosate), the brain releases additional levels of dopamine in a way similar to that of alcohol. In essence, taurine is tricking your brain into thinking that you have indulged in your alcoholism when in truth you havent. Alcoholics who take taurine are less likely to relapse than those who dont.. Additionally, studies have shown that alcoholics who take taurine or its equivalent are less likely to suffer from withdrawal-based psychotic episodes.. In addition to its properties to help reduce relapse and psychotic episodes in alcoholics, taurine has a number of other effects that effect the consumption of alcohol.. ...

Are the causes of schizophrenia organic (biochemical/physiological) or functional (resulting from experience)? At the moment, perhaps because of the wide array of newly developed brain-scanning techniques, the organic explanations are far more prominent. However, the best answer may lie in a synthesis of the two points of view. The main theory in practice today is the diathesis-stress model, which merges two different areas of research.. First, some definitions. A diathesis is a predisposition to a particular disease. Stress can be defined as any number of psychological and social factors. So, the diathesis-stress model holds that schizophrenia is the consequence of a stress-activated diathesis or predisposition.. Proposed biological diathesis for schizophrenia includes problems with brain chemistry and/or development. Researchers have found malformed parts of the brain in people with schizophrenia. These biological abnormalities can lead to problems with thinking, speech, behavior, and staying ...
Look at the gums for example-- gingivitis is caused by anything under the sun. Its not a disease, its a state of poor gum health by any cause. Why is it hard to consider that the brain also can have anything under the sun getting it out of wack? We keep looking for the gene for depression like depression is some disease unto itself. Its a state of poor health in brain chemistry (if were defining depression as chemical depression in the brain and not other problems that cause the same symptoms). This can be caused by bad digestions, poor emotional development, poor diet, pathogens, poor ancestral health, trauma, cellular trauma (conditions that were temporarily damaging to the cells and caused long term alterations or cell death- such as a toxic exposure or lack of oxygen, blood flow, etc ...
Drug abuses, also known as substance abuse or addiction, involves the repeated and excessive use of chemical substances to achieve a certain effect. These substances may be street or illicit drugs, illegal due to their high potential for addiction and abuse. They also may be drugs obtained with a prescription, used for pleasure rather than for medical reasons.. Different drugs have different effects. Some, such as cocaine or methamphetamine, may produce an intense rush and initial feelings of boundless energy. Others, such as heroin, benzodiazepines, or the prescription oxycontin may produce excessive feelings of relaxation and calm.. What most drugs have in common, though, is overstimulation of the pleasure center of the brain. With time, the brains chemistry, and/or the bodys physiology is actually altered to the point where not having the drug becomes extremely uncomfortable and even painful; this is often coupled with the need to take increasingly larger amounts of the drug in order ...
Drug Comedown Essentially, a comedown is the physical, mental, and emotional effects associated with a drug leaving the bodys system. Many drugs create an initial euphoria, or high, which wears off within a few minutes to a few hours. Once the body begins to metabolize the drug, the effects change, and eventually the metabolites are expelled from the body. While working in the body, the drug can change brain chemistry, typically releasing more neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, which are closely tied to mood and sensory perception. When the brain overproduces these chemicals, it does not immediately produce more, so symptoms like exhaustion and depression are common as the drugs effects wear off.. The comedown period covers the initial loss of the high as the drug begins to wear off, all the way to a few days after the drug has been ingested. Sometimes, people attempt to take more drugs to avoid effects from the comedown, but this can just make the eventual ...

Ever been a victim of a con? Dont feel bad. Research shows that the same brain chemical that makes us vulnerable to being scammed is also behind trust and family bonds. Dr. Paul Zak, Professor of Economics and the founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University, explains in this WNYC Radio Interview About Being Scammed.. Its interesting that getting scammed is being associated with brain chemistry. The chemical is called oxytocin. Victims of scams are not just greedy - they really want to help that Nigerian king get the money out. The fact that theyre also going to benefit is important, of course, but they wouldnt believe the scammer unless they really felt like they were helping the scammer and that they felt like the scammer trusted them (and therefore, the victim feels a great need to reciprocate the trust.). Consider the classic pigeon scam, a scene which goes down this way:. ...

In this animated exploration of one of his most illuminating experiments, [Paul] Zak discusses the surprisingly calculable effects that the classic dramatic arc (exposition/rising action/climax/falling action/denouement) has on our brain chemistry and, ultimately, on our decisions and actions.. Monitoring the brain activity of hundreds of study subjects watching a video with a simple narrative, Zak found increases in the levels of the neurochemicals oxytocin and cortisol, which are associated with empathic responses. Most remarkable, however, was the discovery that this response also resulted in study subjects taking action, in this case through donating money they had just earned to a charitable cause related to the story they watched and even to fellow subjects. Zaks conclusion that there could be a universal story structure that functions to connect us to each other might not be surprising to storytellers, but seeing it supported by neuroscience is a tale worth repeating.

Street heroin is a drug which always has a high potential for causing harm. However, there is enormous variability in the risks suffered by different users with different habits. When the costs of use can be so high, there is an especially strong reason to make every effort to minimise harms.. Avoiding use, minimising use, avoiding addiction.. Whilst the body does not immediately develop a physical dependency, people will often like the drug and want to repeat the experience from the first use. If you encounter heroin regularly in your social or family life, this constant availability will add to the temptation to repeat an initial experience, as will stresses in life.. If you do use heroin occasionally and do not wish to stop despite the risks, it is important to be vigilant and reactive to signs of dependence. Growing tolerance for heroin (needing more to feel the same effects) is an important warning sign of some of the changes in your brain chemistry that lead to cravings and withdrawal ...

Anxiety is familiar to everyone due to the many stresses and complexities of modern life. But about 25 percent of US adults have a serious problem with anxiety at some time in their lives.. Unlike fear, which is usually directed toward a concrete thing or event, such as a snarling dog or not meeting a deadline, anxiety is often nonspecific and can be brought on by worrying about the future, your finances or your health, in general, says Edmund Bourne, Ph.D., author of Coping With Anxiety.. Anxiety can appear in different forms and at different levels of intensity, and can range in severity from a mere twinge of uneasiness to a full-blown panic attack.. The causes of anxiety are varied and include upsets in brain chemistry, heredity, childhood trauma, abuse, chronic stress, loss of a loved one, and drug and alcohol abuse, to name a few.. While it can be helpful to identify possible causes of anxiety and address them, you dont need to know why you feel anxious to be helped by practicing ...

It is a biochemical process that is involved in a lot of your bodys daily functions.. So what does methylation mean, and why should you care if you have this MTHFR gene mutation? Simply put, methylation is the addition of (demethylation the removal of) a methyl group (-CH3) to another molecule.

As we begin to generate a more active brain chemistry and feel more alive with more capacity for feeling we can more accurately navigate our way through lives of our conscious choosing. We notice how our thoughts actually make us feel. Taking responsibility for our own happiness is one of the most liberating decisions we can ever make. Extricating ourselves from cultural programming and above all else the belief that suffering has a redemptive value we quit the role of victim and become more aware of how we dream into existence, co-create, attract and manifest what happens to us and around us. The past as a treasure trove of memories and resources and the future as a collection of visions, possibilities, probabilities become a real part of the moment we are experiencing. We begin to live in real time rather than conceptual time ...
Truth be told, however, many of us feel a bit depressed, anxious and overwhelmed as summer draws to a close. With our return from vacation -- literally or figuratively -- these concerns raise their ugly heads once again. Work, school, meetings and projects are in full swing and we often feel a sense of inordinate pressure to gear up. Memories of autumns past remain with us as we experience the sights, sounds, smell and feel of the season. To combat the unfortunate changes in brain chemistry that fall seems to usher in, plan a lot of fun outdoor activities. Apple picking, hay rides, football games, or planning outdoor time to revel in the stunning foliage are all ways to have fun while perking up your mood and enthusiasm.

Nursing changes too. When I first started camp nursing my med box was usually brimming with various antibiotics that the campers came with. Years went by and for a while I saw a lot boys using a nasal spray for bedwetting. This spray has since been banned from use. For a while there were a lot of kids coming to me on ritalin. Ritalin use seems to have peaked and is now on the decline. I only had one boy on it this summer, but I had a very large number of kids using anithistamines on a daily basis. I also had one little girl on daily doses of Prozac. This really made me sad. I spent a lot of time wondering about this girl and what made her parents think that it was ok to put someone not even fully grown on a drug that will alter her brains chemistry and set her up for potentially fatal side effects as she grows into an adult.

Densitometric analysis is often used to quantify NaV1.1 protein on immunoblots, although the sensitivity and dilution linearity of the method are usually poor. Here we present a protocol for quantification of NaV1.1 in mouse brain tissues using a Meso Scale Discovery-Electrochemiluminescence (MSD-ECL) method. MSD-ECL is based on ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) and uses electrochemiluminescence to produce measurable signals. Two different antibodies are used in this assay to capture and detect NaV1.1 respectively in brain tissue lysate. The specificity of the antibodies is confirmed by Scn1a gene knock-out tissue. The calibration curve standards used in this assay were generated with mouse liver lysate spiked with mouse brain lysate, instead of using a recombinant protein.

Röntgen discovered X-rays' medical use when he made a picture of his wife's hand on a photographic plate formed due to X-rays. The photograph of his wife's hand was the first ever photograph of a human body part using X-rays. When she saw the picture, she said, "I have seen my death."[28] The first use of X-rays under clinical conditions was by John Hall-Edwards in Birmingham, England on 11 January 1896, when he radiographed a needle stuck in the hand of an associate. On 14 February 1896, Hall-Edwards also became the first to use X-rays in a surgical operation.[29] The United States saw its first medical X-ray obtained using a discharge tube of Ivan Pulyui's design. In January 1896, on reading of Röntgen's discovery, Frank Austin of Dartmouth College tested all of the discharge tubes in the physics laboratory and found that only the Pulyui tube produced X-rays. This was a result of Pulyui's inclusion of an oblique "target" of mica, used for holding samples of fluorescent material, within the ...

In other words, dangerous criminals dont turn violent. They just stay that way.. These findings have been replicated in multiple large studies by several researchers on several continents.. "Its highly reliable," said Brad J. Bushman, a psychology professor at Ohio State University and an expert on child violence, who noted that toddlers use physical aggression even more than people in violent youth gangs do. "Thank God toddlers dont carry weapons." The son of a professional football player, Dr. Tremblay played football himself and was fascinated with its regulated version of extreme physical aggression. After college he did social work in a prison and saw firsthand how seldom such programs changed violent criminals. By the time the violent child gets big, its often too late.. So he trained his focus earlier and earlier, and learned that the younger the children, the more they whacked each other. With adolescents, physically aggressive acts can be counted in incidents per month; with ...
