Crick's rallying cry for psychologists, neurologists, neurobiologists
, and molecular biologists to turn serious attention to the "search for the soul" is much like Erwin Schrodinger's attempt to bring physicists to genetics in his influential What Is Life?
One of the main flaws of current human, brain-controlled prosthetics is that patients cannot sense the texture of what they touch, said Duke neurobiologist
Miguel Nicolelis, who carried out the study with his team.
These articles usually described what doctors had witnessed in their own practices, says neurobiologist
Fernando Gomez-Pinilla of the University of California, Los Angeles.
For their investigation, the neurobiologists
analyzed the function of genes that play a role in the development of the visual system of the fruit fly.he scientists now report that the visual system of the fruit fly is only able to develop correctly, when two genes work together - the genes that are in charge of producing the proteins "Golden Goal" and "Flamingo".
Contributors are psychologists, neurobiologists
, and specialists in behavioral medicine and parapsychology from North America, Europe, Australia, and Brazil.
In order to integrate developments in the field of cytokine biology over the ten years since the first edition, the second edition fields a whole new team of writers with instructions to continue the basic goal of introducing cytokines to neurobiologists
. North American and European researchers consider such aspects as where cytokines come from and where they are headed, signaling, the development of the nervous system, cytokine expression and signaling in brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, and cytokine-based therapeutics for disease processes.
Patterns of mild electrical disturbance in the brains of epilepsy patients seem to foreshadow a seizure hours before its onset, reports a group of neurobiologists
and electrical engineers.
The dopamine model's predictions, created as part of a unique collaborative effort among physicists, mathematicians and neurobiologists
, are supported by observations made in animal models.
Cell and structural biologists, geneticists, neurobiologists
, and immunologists delve into such issues as the organizing principles behind cell shape change, whether there are master switches in every cell type, how extracellular signals are interpreted by the cell in order to activate intracellular mechanisms, the influence of the extra-cellular matrix on cell movements and internal signaling pathways, and how pathogens subvert cellular systems in order to stimulate or block their uptake.
have long surmised that itch units are a type of nerve fiber especially sensitive to histamines, says pain researcher H.
UC Irvine neurobiologists
have provided the first visual evidence that learning promotes brain health - and that mental stimulation could limit the debilitating effects of aging on memory and the mind.
