Smell is the sense that is concerned with the odor of things. It is perceived by receptors in the olfactory apparatus in the roof of ones nose. Signals here are transmitted along the Olfactory Nerve...
Some traumatic experiences, like childhood abuse, are so painful that the brain tucks them away in a special chemical pathway in the brain, according to a new study.Read more about Traumatic Memori
Researchers at the University of Basel took a close look at a signaling pathway present in most organisms and found that it suppresses the formation of specific types of brain tumor. Their results hav...

Two groups have identified metabolic changes caused by therapies targeting the PI3K pathway that could both explain and provide a solution for the compounds' poor performance in the clinic.
New research from Duke University helps explain the paradox of why we are quick to blame people for their actions, but slower to give them credit.
In animals, numerous behaviors are governed by the olfactory perception of their surrounding world. Whether originating in the nose of a mammal or the antennas of an insect, perception results from th...
Diversification of neuron classes is essential for functions of the olfactory system, but the underlying mechanisms that generate individual olfactory neuron types are only beginning to be understood....
Reuters Health - Damage to the filter that protects the brain from toxins may partly explain why explosions have been leaving soldiers with lasting brain injuries, researchers say.
To explore the frequency of posttraumatic olfactory (dys)function 1 year after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and determine whether there is a relationship between olfactory identification and ne...
The "dual-hit" and propagation hypotheses of α-synuclein suggests that the olfactory cells of the olfactory epithelium are among the earliest sites of involvement in Parkinson's disease (PD). We inve...
Olfactory loss is a challenging clinical problem with few proven therapeutic options. Early experimental results with olfactory training suggest that this novel therapy may be an effective interventio...
Olfactory dysfunction is present since the earliest stage of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In AD patients, the olfactory impairment has been correlated with atrophy of some structures of the olfactory sys...
Present study investigated seasonal plasticity in neural activity of the olfactory system, and assessed whether this was influenced by differences in seasonal life-history states (LHSs) between the no...
