- Scientists develop new optical technique to observe neurotransmitter activity
- "Understanding how we accomplish complex tasks, such as learning and memory, requires us to look at how our brains transmit key signals -- called neurotransmitters -- across synapses from one neuron to another," said David Sulzer, PhD, professor of ...
- Fluorescent false neurotransmitter reveals functionally silent dopamine
- To elucidate the spatial dynamics and heterogeneity of individual dopamine boutons, we developed fluorescent false neurotransmitter 200 (FFN200), a vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) substrate that selectively traces monoamine exocytosis in ...
- Exercise boosts brain activity
- “This is your body on exercise,” according to the findings of a new imaging study. Your heart and lungs work harder, of course. But the real surprise is how the exercise produces surges of more neurotransmitters that rev up brain function.
- AlphaGo Will Enable Us To Enhance Human Capabilities
- Reinforcement learning in humans is when positive feedback triggers the neurotransmitter dopamine as a reward signal for the brain. Computers can be programmed to work in the same way, but the positive rewards come in the form of numbers when the ...
- Cats and dogs
- He's probably right, too, although your mileage may differ. Zak's book, "The Moral Molecule," expounds upon the wonders of oxytocin, a neurotransmitter that gives people the warm fuzzies when people they love (or attractive Italians) embrace them.
