How does physiological state affect the reproductive behavior of an organism? Two new studies in Caenorhabditis elegans implicate an ancient serotonergic neuronal circuit in the link between these two outputs - reproductive behavior and physiology.

Unlike in terrestrial animals, the boundary between internal (e.g., hormones) and external (e.g., social) stimulation can be blurred for aquatic and amphibious species. When chemicals such as hormones...
Communication Complexity Scale (CCS) scores for 269 minimally verbal participants were examined to determine if communicator behavior and task and communicator characteristics were related to scores i...
Acutely ill older patients with cognitive impairment represent a major subgroup in acute care hospitals. In this context, communication plays a crucial role for patients' well-being, healthcare deci...
The study of individual differences in behavior and physiology has attracted considerable interest among behavioral biologists. Important questions include how early in life such differences emerge an...
The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of an intervention aimed at improving how adolescent patients and their clinicians c...
To evaluate two different techniques of cross linking: standard epithelium off (CXL epi off) versus trans-epithelial (CXL epi on) cross linking in patient with progressive keratoconus.
Chronic stress has been shown to impact long-term emotional and physical health. When nearly three-quarters of Americans report stress at levels that exceed what they consider healthy, the...
the purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of a new method of corneal cross-linking that uses UV-A irradiation intensity of 9mW/cm2 for 7 minutes to well-known Accele...
To compare 3 year iontophoretic transepithelial corneal cross-linking (I-ON CXL) outcomes with epithelium-off collagen cross-linking (epi-off CXL)in pediatric patients.
Communication between animals involving the giving off by one individual of some chemical or physical signal, that, on being received by another, influences its behavior.
A term used in Eastern European research literature on brain and behavior physiology for cortical functions. It refers to the highest level of integrative function of the brain, centered in the CEREBRAL CORTEX, regulating language, thought, and behavior via sensory, motor, and cognitive processes.
Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of chemical processes or phenomena; includes the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.
Chemical substances excreted by humans that elicit behavior or physiological responses from other humans. Perception of these chemical signals may be olfactory or by contact.
Any of several ways in which living cells of an organism communicate with one another, whether by direct contact between cells or by means of chemical signals carried by neurotransmitter substances, hormones, and cyclic AMP.
