Here's how it works: just as pregnenolone itself acts at excitatory receptors in the brain to stimulate nerve cell activity and enhance learning, other neurohormones produced from pregnenolone (such as allopregnanolone) act on inhibitory brain receptors, called gamma amino-butyric acid (A) (GABA(A)) receptors, which suppress brain cell activity to produce a calming, anti-anxiety, and even sleepinducing effect.
Biogenic amines have been found to modulate the release of various neurohormones from crustacean neuroendocrine tissue.
Acupuncture can interrupt the hiccup reflex arc through activation of the autonomic nervous system, change of blood perfusion, inflammatory mediators, and neurotransmitters and neurohormones of the hiccup center.
In fact, that increased production of neurohormones like serotonin and norepinephrine, leading to feelings of elation and excitement, may be the signal for the balancing function of the endorphins.
Any energy source, be it static or dynamic, will induce a change in the native resonant frequencies of one or more neurohormones or neurohormone clusters.
Such changes were correlated with changes in levels of neurohormones and neurotransmitters such as noradrenaline, dopamine, acetylcholine, and serotonin in the brain (14).
12] Neuropeptides include proteins functioning as neurotransmitters, neuromodulators and neurohormones which participate in nutrient delivery through the skin to the body.
The principle hormone considered in this phenomenon is norepinephrine which is involved in producing; long-term potentiation, while other neurohormones secreted under stressful circumstances (endorphines, glucocorticoids and oxytocin, for example) actually may inhibit memory consolidation (Zager 1985).
Don't forget that running and other aerobic activity with its ability to modify neurohormones can be very effective in depression treatment with nothing but positive side effects," adds AR&FA Editorial Board Member Paul Kiell, M.
This brain activation translates into the instant release of a cocktail of neurohormones, such as dopamine.
10) Acupuncture, through its regulatory effect on the production of neurohormones and neurotransmitters, can help to regulate dopamine production.
Function of cardiac fibroblasts is modulated by diverse environmental stimuli in the remodeling heart, such as ischemia, mechanical stretch, neurohormones and oxygen stress.
