Neural S1PR3 Receptor Boosts Resilience To Stress

A receptor on the surface of brain cells plays a key role in regulating how both animals and people respond to stress, scientists have discovered. The research suggests that the receptor may represent an important biomarker of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in humans and may offer a new target for future, more effective treatments for […]

Noradrenaline Reconfigures Functional Brain Connections During Stress

Selective release of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline reconfigures communication between large-scale networks in the brain, researchers at ETH Zurich have shown for the first time. The findings bring insight into speedy neural processes that happen in the brain in stressful situations. In moments of acute stress — for example, a life-threatening situation in road traffic — […]

FGF23: Hormone Linked To Structural Brain Deficits

The ways that high levels of a hormone called fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) can reduce brain health have been uncovered by researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). High levels of FGF23 were associated with structural changes in the brain’s frontal lobes. High FGF23 levels are thought to lead to the vascular […]
