Science & Tech  (tags: Hormone, Molecular Glue, Plant, Immune Systems )

- 3210 days ago -
The discovery of a hormone acting like molecular glue could hold a key to bolstering plant immune systems and understanding how plants cope with environmental stress.
Glow-in-the-Dark Shark Turned on By Hormones
Science & Tech  (tags: Dark Shark, Glow, Science, Hormone )

- 3542 days ago -
The safe answer to how a lantern shark turns its luminescence on and off is: "Any way it wants." Now researchers have looked into the belly of the beast and found that three hormones act as on-off switches for these glow-in-the-dark sharks.

Science & Tech  (tags: scientists, research, study, discovery, humans, axon, brain, cell, chemical, chemoattractant, hormone, molecules, nerve, neurones, odour, olfactory, receptor )

- 4134 days ago -
A Neuroscientist and his colleagues have now found that the hormone, insulin-like growth factor (IGF) plays a critical role in setting up the connections between chemical detectors in the nose and the brain's olfactory centers.
Hormone Orexin Links Sleep, Hunger and Metabolism
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, orexin, hormone, sleep, hunger, protein, HIF-1, tumors )

- 4265 days ago -
While investigating how the hormone orexin might control sleep and hunger, researchers have discovered, to their surprise, that it activates a protein, HIF-1, long known to stimulate cancerous tumor growth.
Blue-Blocking Glasses To Improve Sleep And ADHD Symptoms Developed
Science & Tech  (tags: ADHD, sleep disoders, humans, blue light, melatonin, hormone, circadian rhythm )

- 4265 days ago -
Researchers have created glasses designed to block blue light, therefore altering a person's circadian rhythm, which leads to improvement in ADHD symptoms and sleep disorders.
Emotional Brain Drives Eating
Science & Tech  (tags: eating, hormone, emotion, brain, cognitive reward areas, science )

- 4297 days ago -
Emotional brain drives eating. A key signaling hormone that tells the brain when the stomach is full communicates with cognitive reward areas of the brain. Pleasure circuits play a key role in driving eating habits.
Scientists Develop Gene Contraceptive Free of Hormones
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, contraceptive, hormone, RNA interference )

- 4297 days ago -
The new contraceptive relies on a technique called RNA interference, which uses tiny fragments of genetic material to block the activity of genes in the body. The process is so powerful it was lauded as a revolution in medical science last year.
Why Bad Memories Stick
Science & Tech  (tags: brain, stress, memories, hormone, norepinephrine, humans )

- 4308 days ago -
Stressful events can create bad memories that are hard to forget. Stress hormone norepinephrine tweaks a certain type of chemical receptor, GluR1, in the brain . As a result, the brain lowers its threshold for learning, making it easier to make memories.
Deficits in Brain Activation Found in Pedophilia Patients
Science & Tech  (tags: brain, deficits, pedophilia, disorder, children, hormone )

- 4320 days ago -
A new study has found that pedophiles - adults who are sexually attracted to children - have reduced activation of the hypothalamus, a brain region involved in regulating physiologic arousal and hormone release.
