These sensory neurons are the only neurons in our bodies that regenerate throughout adult life: as some of our olfactory neurons die, they are soon replaced by newborns.
In particular, pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons, which have been shown to play a key role in appetite suppression, reside in this region.
One version involved a neuron that responded to Josh Brolin and another that responded to Marilyn Monroe.
That difference may be due to a number of things, Zlatic says: "It could be previous experience; it could be developmental differences; it could be somehow the personality of animals; different states that the animals find themselves in at the time of neuron activation.
Washington, Feb 9 ( ANI ): There are two vital cell types in the brain that are essential for the regulation of feeding behaviours - agouti-related peptide (AgRP)-expressing neurons and proopiomelancortin (POMC)-expressing neurons.
In this paper we propose a spatial-temporal scheme based on plausible spiking neuron models (Gerstner W.
Although the dark and light classifications of DRG neurons have been used for many years, there has been no systematic analysis of the differences between these neuron subsets.
The results showed that the venom molecules activated only the neurons that could also react to capsaicin.
When a person loses approximately 50 percent of his or her dopamine-making neurons, the first symptoms of PD appear.
Normally, mirror neurons fire when a person takes action or observes the same action taken by others.
While successfully evading researchers' efforts to understand why and how it starts and progresses, Parkinson's disease has shown scientists what it does to the brain-it kills the neurons that control the release of dopamine, a chemical which is important in controlling movement.
