  1. Itch

    Mechanisms and Treatment

    Edited by E. Carstens, Tasuku Akiyama

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Advances in itch research have elucidated differences between itch and pain but have also blurred the distinction between them. There is a long debate about how somatic sensations including touch, pain, itch, and temperature sensitivity are encoded by the nervous system. Research suggests that each...

  2. Neurobiology of Chemical Communication

    Edited by Carla Mucignat-Caretta

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Intraspecific communication involves the activation of chemoreceptors and subsequent activation of different central areas that coordinate the responses of the entire organism—ranging from behavioral modification to modulation of hormones release. Animals emit intraspecific chemical signals, often...

  3. Neurobiology of Body Fluid Homeostasis

    Transduction and Integration

    Edited by Laurival Antonio De Luca Jr., Jose Vanderlei Menani, Alan Kim Johnson

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    A timely symposium entitled Body-Fluid Homeostasis: Transduction and Integration was held at Araraquara, São Paulo, Brazil in 2011. This meeting was convened as an official satellite of a joint gathering of the International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience (ISAN) and the American Autonomic...

  4. Spike Timing

    Mechanisms and Function

    Edited by Patricia M. DiLorenzo, Jonathan D. Victor

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Neuronal communication forms the basis for all behavior, from the smallest movement to our grandest thought processes. Among the many mechanisms that support these functions, spike timing is among the most powerful and—until recently—perhaps the least studied. In the last two decades, however, the...

  5. Transcranial Brain Stimulation

    Edited by Carlo Miniussi, Walter Paulus, Paolo M. Rossini

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Since the discovery of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), these non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques have been used to investigate the state of cortical excitability, and the excitability of the cortico-cortical and corticospinal...

  6. The Neurobiological Basis of Suicide

    Edited by Yogesh Dwivedi

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    With recent studies using genetic, epigenetic, and other molecular and neurochemical approaches, a new era has begun in understanding pathophysiology of suicide. Emerging evidence suggests that neurobiological factors are not only critical in providing potential risk factors but also provide a...

  7. Alzheimer's Disease

    Targets for New Clinical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Strategies

    Edited by Renee D. Wegrzyn, Alan S. Rudolph

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    In recent years, a tremendous amount of effort has been focused on better understanding the fundamentals of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) to facilitate early and accurate diagnosis and appropriately targeted therapeutic treatments. Alzheimer’s Disease: Targets for New Clinical, Diagnostic, and...

  8. Dopamine – Glutamate Interactions in the Basal Ganglia

    Edited by Susan Jones

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    The basal ganglia are involved in complex brain functions, from voluntary movement control to learning and reward processing, and they are implicated in numerous neurological and psychiatric disorders. Information from the cerebral cortex and thalamus is conveyed to basal ganglia nuclei via...

  9. Astrocytes

    Wiring the Brain

    Edited by Eliana Scemes, David C. Spray

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Astrocytes play diverse roles in central nervous system (CNS) function and dysfunction, and the connections that the astrocyte makes with other cells of the brain are essential for a variety of important neural tasks. Bringing together contributions from international experts at the top of their...

  10. Neurobiology of Depression

    Edited by Francisco Lopez-Munoz, Cecilio Alamo

    Series: Frontiers in Neuroscience

    Major depressive disorders have recently been associated with impairments in signaling pathways that regulate neuroplasticity and cell survival. Agents designed to directly target molecules in these pathways hold promise as new therapeutics for depression. With the collaboration of the most...
