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 ...

Neuroimaging is a medical discipline that uses non-invasive methods of visualizing the brain. In addition to being used to diagnose disease and assess brain health, neuroimaging is also valuable in the study of the brain, how the brain works, and how various activities impact the brain.. Feinstein Institute researchers are involved in a leading imaging research program in brain disease that is internationally recognized for developing novel imaging techniques to characterize and quantify brain patterns in neurodegenerative disorders. These include Parkinsons disease, Huntingtons disease, dystonia and other neurological conditions. They use their findings for diagnosing disease and for assessing the extent of functional impairment as the disease progresses. Researchers are also investigating the regulation of key molecules to understand how brain chemistry relates to specific brain patterns and therapeutic outcome.. Feinstein Institute investigators conducting neuroimaging research include ...
THURSDAY, Nov. 30, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Teens fixated on their smartphones experience changes to their brain chemistry that mirror those prompted by addiction, a new study suggests.. Kids who compulsively used the internet or fiddled with their phones tended to have increased neurotransmitter activity in the anterior cingulate cortex, a region tied to the brains systems of behavior reward, control of inhibition and mood regulation, a team of South Korean researchers found.. "This particular region is well-known to be involved in addiction based upon the modulation of those kinds of behaviors," said Dr. Christopher Whitlow, an associate professor of radiology with the Wake Forest Substance Addiction and Abuse Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. "The authors are showing an effect in part of the circuitry of the brain thats involved in addiction.". The research team, led by Dr. Hyung Suk Seo at Korea University in Seoul, used a scanning technique called magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to ...

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 ...
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 ...

Most of us think of conversations as casual, but you reveal that they are much more than what they appear. What has your research revealed about the power and importance of conversation?. Conversational Intelligence is the intelligence hardwired into every human being to enable us to navigate successfully with others. Through language and conversations, we learn to build trust, to bond, to grow to each other, and to create our societies. There is no more powerful skill hardwired into every human being than the wisdom of conversations.. Conversations are not just the words we use when engaging with others. Our 35 years of research shows that conversations are the golden thread that keeps human beings connected relationally, neuro-chemically, and energetically. Our brain has the ability to signal us when the connection feels like distrust or when we feel trust.. Conversations happen like this:. Our conversations take place against the backdrop of our brain chemistry. Our state of mind - and ...

This really hits home Barbara. Thanks for sending it over. The description of how sugar affects the brain chemistry really hits home. I have been having those reactions over the past several months, if not years! I had thought it was attributable to stress and a crazy schedule with a double dose of caffeine now and then. Recently though I noticed that the level of scatter in my thoughts at certain times just didnt make sense. It was like I was trying to focus and get settled and there was a reaction going on that was preventing it from happening. So.. I have taken your advice and dropped added sugar from my diet starting with breakfast and I feel an immediate bounce. I stopped using any type of sweetener in my coffee or tea in the morning.

But more than likely, were not evolving in any particular direction at all, because of how incredibly large our human population has become. The larger the population, the less of a chance for mutations and next steps to take hold on a large enough amount of people and thus for them to stick around in our genes. Imagine, theres this guy, and hes born with a digestive tract that keeps him perfectly healthy no matter how much macdonalds he eats, brain chemistry that makes him perfectly happy with working hard at a decent job and having more facebook friends than real friends, and the confidence to think that hes better than Leonardo DaVinci (even though he isnt by my standards) which makes him hit on any chick he wants to hit on.

Holly Paige is difficult to put into words! A fiercely independent thinker, she joins the dots between raw foods, consciousness and transformation in a way that is at once profound and accessible. Holly is mother to four children, and has been raw over ten years. She spends a lot of her time researching information and developing ideas, as well as teaching classes and sharing information on her blogs. You may not have heard of her, because she isnt particularly interested in pursuing fame, more trying to reach for the truth, but I feel she has an extremely valuable level of information to share, and is a true pioneer of the raw foods movement. She really understands the biochemistry of how the raw food diet works, particularly how it affects brain chemistry. She then draws on that understanding, to extrapolate how humanity and our world might alter if we all were operating on that purer frequency. She believes the three key areas we need to address to move into a more positive future state are: ...

I used to think that our brain is like a computer hard disk, that if we squeeze too much information into it, some old information will be replaced by the new information coming in and be lost. I found that I was wrong. The truth is that if you get more information, your ability to memorize increases accordingly. You then can memorize more and at a faster rate. On the contrary, if you think less, your ability to think will be undermined. Our brain has a mechanism similar to our muscles. If you regularly work out, your muscles will become... ...

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 ...
Health System Public Relations People with bipolar disorder have an average of 30 percent more of an important class of signal-sending brain cells, according to new evidence being published by U-M researchers. The finding, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, solidifies the idea that the disorder has unavoidable biological and genetic roots, and may explain why it runs in families. The discovery is the first neurochemical difference to be found between asymptomatic bipolar and non-bipolar people. It could help the understanding and treatment of a disease that affects as much as 1.5 percent of the population. Bipolar disorder has in the past been known as manic depression. To put it simply, these patients brains are wired differently, in a way that we might expect to predispose them to bouts of mania and depression, says Jon-Kar Zubieta, assistant professor of psychiatry and radiology. Now, we must expand and apply this knowledge to give them a treatment strategy based on solid ...
A new study (Neurology, March 2000) by researchers at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center provides evidence that people who used methamphetamine have significant changes in their brain chemistry. Researchers used brain-imaging methods to compare chemicals in the brains of 26 former methamphetamine abusers and 24 healthy, age-matched people. Researchers examined levels of N-acetylaspartate (NA), because it is thought to be a marker for neuron damage. For example, decreases in NA are seen in the brains of patients with Alzheimers disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and other neurological disorders. Compared to healthy people, methamphetamine abusers had reduced levels of NA in the basal ganglia and the white matter of the frontal lobe. People who had used the most methamphetamine had the lowest levels of NA. Two other brain chemicals, choline and myoinositol, were used to track glial cell changes. Significant increases in these chemicals were found in the gray matter of the frontal lobes of ...
A lowered level of consciousness indicate a deficit in brain function.[4] Level of consciousness can be lowered when the brain receives insufficient oxygen (as occurs in hypoxia); insufficient blood (as occurs in shock); or has an alteration in the brains chemistry.[3] Metabolic disorders such as diabetes mellitus and uremia can alter consciousness.[11] Hypo- or hypernatremia (decreased and elevated levels of sodium, respectively) as well as dehydration can also produce an altered LOC.[12] A pH outside of the range the brain can tolerate will also alter LOC.[9] Exposure to drugs (e.g. alcohol) or toxins may also lower LOC,[3] as may a core temperature that is too high or too low (hyperthermia or hypothermia). Increases in intracranial pressure (the pressure within the skull) can also cause altered LOC. It can result from traumatic brain injury such as concussion.[11] Stroke and intracranial hemorrhage are other causes.[11] Infections of the central nervous system may also be associated with ...
Why has there been an exponential increase in autism over the last 20 years? There are probably three possibilities:. 1. TOXINS:. Our planet has an ever-increasing toxic load which passes into the fetus or infant. These are things like thimerosal, insecticides, food preservatives, food dyes, metals etc.. 2. EMF:. Exposure of the pregnant mother to EMFs from cell phone radiation, radio and TV broadcasting, radar, wireless technology, and microwaves damages the epigenome.. 3. INFECTION:. The spread and increased virulence of a relative new line- Borrelia strain could explain why autism rates are on the rise. Also mold and others. Multiple articles in the literature show that the mercury in thimerosal has a profound effect on brain chemistry.. There is an uncoupling of ATP mediated calcium signaling and dysregulation of interleukin 6 in the dendritic cells of the brain. Several articles have shown that perinatal exposure to polychlorinated biphenols alter brains and brain plasticity.. There is a ...
Tricyclic and tetracyclic antidepressants, also called cyclic antidepressants, are among the earliest antidepressants developed. Theyre effective, but theyve generally been replaced by antidepressants that cause fewer side effects. However, cyclic antidepressants may be a good option for some people. In certain cases, they relieve depression when other treatments have failed.. Cyclic antidepressants are designated as tricyclic or tetracyclic, depending on the number of rings in their chemical structure - three (tri) or four (tetra).. Cyclic antidepressants ease depression by impacting chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) used to communicate between brain cells. Like most antidepressants, cyclic antidepressants work by ultimately effecting changes in brain chemistry and communication in brain nerve cell circuitry known to regulate mood, to help relieve depression.. Cyclic antidepressants block the absorption (reuptake) of the neurotransmitters serotonin (ser-o-TOE-nin) and norepinephrine ...
This past week there was discussion of the number of high school football players that die annually while playing football (at least 5). But the bigger risk - because it involves so many players - is the damage to brains that occurs from concussions and from just being hit in football. The response from football enthusiasts is that there are safeguards now - that football players dont play after a concussion until they "heal" (show no obvious symptoms). But do they really heal? And much of the damage is from repeated hits, without having a concussion (sub-concussive blows or hits), what about the damage from that?. This study found that repeated head hits in football can cause changes in brain chemistry and metabolism, even in high school players not diagnosed with concussions. And even after the lengthy off-season (somewhere between two and five months after the season has ended)-the majority of players are still showing that they had not fully recovered. The researchers also made it clear ...
There does not appear to be any one underlying cause for delusional parasitosis, although it probably has to do with fundamental aspects of brain chemistry. This syndrome is often classified into three types according to the underlying condition as below. However, there is increasing literature on itch and chronic pruritus (itch) that indicate that delusional parasitosis may not be a psychiatric syndrome per se and instead may have a fundamental origin in the itch nerve pathways between the skin and the brain.

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 ...
