A fluorescent protein makes it possible to follow disease progression in brain diseases such as Alzheimer's, strokes, and depression. That may lead to better insight into diseases and possible ...

Neuromedin U (NMU) is a hormone that suppresses appetite and affects energy metabolism and obesity patterns. Mice lacking NMU tend to become obese due to overeating, making NMU an ideal candidate for ...

The gene-silencing complex HUSH might be involved in complex disorders affecting the brain and neurons. However, its mechanism of action remains unclear. Researchers now uncover the in vivo targets ...

In the brain of adult mammals neural stem cells ensure that new nerve cells, i.e. neurons, are constantly formed. This process, known as adult neurogenesis, helps mice maintain their sense of smell. ...


Researchers have identified a pathway in the brains of mice that is activated when the animals see other mice scratching and that, surprisingly, does not involve the brain's visual ...

Researchers have developed a Zika vaccine technology that is highly effective and safe in preclinical mouse ...

On an island 30 miles off the coast of San Francisco, a hoard of invasive house mice are packing an ecological wallop far larger than what their small statures would ...

In the 2001 'Amerithrax' attacks, anthrax-causing spores were sent through the mail to media outlets and members of Congress, sickening at least 22 people and killing five. ...
