Mental Health News

  • Serotonin contributions to cocaine's allure
    A new study reinforces long-held suspicions that the brain chemical serotonin, a molecule usually associated with mood, appetite and libido, makes a direct contribution to the actions of cocaine. Scientists can now clearly see details of how the brain uses serotonin not just to regulate mood, but also to drive both rapid and long-lasting changes in the brain. They suspect these changes may contribute to the brain modifications that ultimately trap users in an addicted state.
  • How the cortex assigns credit for causality
    New research affirms a key role for neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in the crucial learning task of determining what caused a desired result.
  • Mouse's view of the world, seen through its whiskers
    Neuroscientists have thoroughly mapped the touch, visual and auditory regions of the brain's cortex, but how does this sensory information get processed into our perception of the world? Researchers have for the first time reconstructed the spatial map a mouse creates with its whiskers, and found evidence that layers 2 and 3 of the somatosensory cortex integrate the discret inputs from each whisker to create a smooth map of the surrounding world.
