I feel you: Emotional mirror neurons found in rats

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers from the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience have found that the rat brain activates the same cells when they observe the pain of others as when they experience pain themselves. In addition, without the activity of these mirror neurons, the animals no longer share the pain of others. Finding the neural … Read more

Anesthesia sends neurons down the wrong path in unborn rat babies

Study: Anesthesia disrupts the ‘precisely choreographed’ migration neurons make in developing brains. Preventing them from ‘arriving at their proper and predetermined’ locations can have profound impact on brain development. Credit: Dr. Vicko Gluncic, MD, PhD While there has long been discussion whether exposure to anesthesia affects brain development, new Rush University Medical Center research published … Read more

Melatonin’s heart protective effects not related to its antioxidant properties: Antiarrhythmic benefit from melatonin is distinct from its antioxidant effect

Although melatonin does improve the outcomes of induced heart attacks in rats, those improvements are not the result of its antioxidant effect, new research finds. The study comparing antioxidant activity and heart protection will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS) annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2019 in Orlando, Fla.. Antiarrhythmic agents are … Read more

Study suggests ‘rest is best’ for carpal tunnel and similar injuries: Rest offers relief for overuse-induced disorders without the side effects of drugs

In a new study conducted in rats, researchers found a four-week period of rest was nearly as effective as an experimental drug at reducing discomfort and regaining function after an injury from repeated moderate-strain activity. The findings are relevant to treating common musculoskeletal disorders caused by overuse, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, tendinosis and … Read more

Blocking opioid receptors could reduce hormone-therapy-fueled increases in sugar intake: Findings of rat study suggest the opioid system is responsible for hormone treatment’s effect on sugar consumption

Estradiol is a commonly prescribed estrogen therapy. Previous research has found that rats treated with the hormone experience an increase in sugar consumption. But according to new research, blocking the body’s opioid receptors can reverse this effect. The findings will be presented today at the American Physiological Society’s (APS) annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2019 … Read more

Experimental drug shows promise for opioid withdrawal symptoms: In rats, rapastinel reverses signs of withdrawal with no side effects

While medicines are available to relieve withdrawal symptoms in people recovering from opioid addiction, they cause side effects and can maintain the brain changes that led to addiction in the first place, which can lead to relapse before treatment is completed. New research offers hope that a better solution may be on the horizon. Rapastinel, … Read more
