Whether you lift your arm or think of what you wanna cook for dinner, you can be sure that neurotransmitters are involved. They mediate the interaction between two neurons and lead to the opening of ion channels. One of those neurotransmitters is acetylcholine which can transmit both excitatory and inhibitory effects. In order to close the ion channel, acetylcholine has to be degraded and thus be inactivated. This is done by an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase. The active site resembles a serine protease and constitutes of a Ser–His–Glu triad, which hydrolyses the acetyl group and splits the neurotransmitter into acetyl and choline. Blocking this crucial enzyme can lead to paralysis and even to death due to inability to control muscles involved in breathing.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ neu·ron /ˈn(y)o͝orän/ noun plural noun: neurons A granular cell that transmits and receives nerve impulses to initiate or inhibit behavior. When it comes to looking for the deepest mystery of the Universe, there is no need to look far out into space. Its location is actually very close to us, housed right inside our heads. The brain is an organ of extraordinary complexity constructed from relatively simple elements, in the same way that thousands of words, sentences, and narratives are constructed out of a few dozen letters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is comprised of approximately 100 billion individual nerve cells, called neurons, rivaling the number of stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. To give you an idea of how many neurons that is, if you were to count to 100 billion, second by second, you would be counting for nearly 3,000 years. If you could stack 100 billion pieces of paper, the stack would be 5,000 miles high… which is the distance from Los Angeles to London.

A Shanghai Green Valley Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Green Valley) anunciou hoje que a fase 3 de seu estudo das cápsulas oligomannurarato de sódio (GV-971) para a doença de Alzheimer leve a moderada chegou ao seu desfecho (endpoint) primário. Este teste clínico randomizado, duplo-cego e controlado por placebo da China visou avaliar a segurança e a eficácia do GV-971, uma droga oligossacarídica multialvo, em participantes do estudo com doença de Alzheimer leve a moderada (com o MEEM pontuando entre 11 e 26). No ramo do tratamento, os participantes tomaram o GV-971 em duas doses orais diárias de 450mg durante 36 semanas. O desfecho primário mostrou a mudança para melhor dos resultados da Escala de Avaliação da Doença de Alzheimer – subsescala cognitiva (ADAS-cog), após 36 semanas de tratamento com o GV-971, comparados aos do controle com placebo. Os dados demonstraram que o GV-971 significativamente melhorou a diminuição cognitiva. Da perspectiva de adventos adversos, o GV-971 demonstrou um perfil similar ao do placebo, com nenhuma alteração de imagem causada por amiloide (ARIA, em inglês) observada. #Alzheimer #demência #dementia #cognição #memória #linguagem #neurociência #neuroscience #neurologia #psiquiatria #gerontologia #geriatria #fonoaudiologia #fisioterapia #terapiaocupacional #nutrição #enfermagem #psicologia #cuidador #terapia #tratamento #comunicação #cérebro #neurônios #brain #neurons #sus #hospital #medicamentos

While my heart is in process of being created, I decided to post some structures. In the first one we can see the impulse transmission (action potential), in the second one are the retinal neurons, in the third one are depicted the types of photoreceptors and in the last one there is the a section through the spiral of the cochlea. #structure #biology #medicine #doctor #photoreceptors #cochlea #neurons #cones #rods #mitochondria #synapsis #impulse #study #human #organs #systems
I would like us to think about it more explicitly, and not take our intuitions as the given of ethics, but rather to reflect on it, and be more open about the fact that something is an ethical issues and think what we ought to do about it. #oliversacks #neurons #photography_lovers #life #ig_souls #art #picoftheday #instapic #dailyart #dailyinspiration #dailyinsta @natgeo #yourshotphotographer #soul #life #portrait #porträtt #creatingmemories #dancing #dancer #expression
Brain! Beyin; Çok sevdiğim bir storyteller yani masal anlatıcısı youtuber son videosunda insan beyninin ağaç kökleri gibi olduğuna değinmişti. Beynimizin içindeki sinapslar ve nöronlarn kökler gibi birbirine bağlı olduğunu dile getiriyordu. Tabiat öyle mükemmel bir dizayn ki yeraltında gördüğünüz bu sanat eserlerini sonra gökyüzünde de görüyorsunuz ve fark ediyorsunuz ki aslında beynin kılcal damarlarına sinapslarına benzeyen kök yapısı galakside de kendisini gösteriyor, ama o kadar uzağa gitmenize gerek olmadığını dile getiriyor doğa ve diyor ki ; ben varoluştan bu yana sizlere bunu anlatmak istedim, uzaklara bakmayın bende görün sanatın en yalın halini. Dönüşümün o en saf biçimini, bunu anlatmak istedim sizlere hep nesiller boyu , bir gün görmeniz dileğiyle... 🍃 Sonra bir yaprak tanesi alıyorsunuz elinize ön yüzü gökyüzü, arkasında ise yeraltı gizli; o sözü edilen damarlarıyla, kökleriyle, sinapsları ve nöronlarıyla "fark et, gör artık beni" der gibi... #yaprak #beyin #nöron #neurons #sinaps #farket #farkındalık #objeart #kökler #roots #leaf #brain #barisozcan
Neuroplasticity through movement. These beautiful microscopic connections between neurons are what allow our brains to perform such incredible & complex function. Focussed attention & complex movement can drive synaptogenesis at a rate of upto 1.8 million new connections /sec. That’s approx. 108 million potential new connections /min! There are around 86 Billion neurons in the human brain & any 1 neuron can contact up to 10k postsynaptic cells. When you think about Neuroplasticity in terms of creating over 100 million new connections /min, the possibilities for changing movement and function are vast. If you look at dancers, martial artists, gymnasts & the way their nervous systems can: coordinate movement, spontaneously judge depth & distance, achieve balance when unstable, recruit a precise amount of force as required etc. You’d see close to the highest degree of overall neuromuscular function and neurologic control. It’s no coincidence that these disciplines all move in complex ways through huge ranges, with large amounts of force & are constantly learning new patterns! Sedentary lifestyles & moving only in habituated patterns are literally de-evolving humans at somewhere very close to the rate at which technological advancements make our lives easier. You can combat this by moving in novel complex ways, introducing play into your movement routines and just never being afraid to mix things up with something new in training! **If you do this well, you should be out of breath, losing concentration, sweating & generally experiencing fatigue in almost no time flat! Neuroplastic changes are fantastic, but they come a huge cost of oxygen & glucose 😅 #neuroplasticity #newmovement #synapse #synapses #neuron #neurons #newconnections #improvingmyself #improvingeveryday #improvinglives #changinglivesdaily #changinghabits #rom #danceforlife #gymnasts #martialartslife #balletdancer #mixitup #somethingneweveryday #amnacademy #amncoach #braintraining #pteducation #parkour #ninjawarrior #agilitytraining #coordination #motorskills #motordevelopment #neuro
Internal Landscapes has a home in the gallery space at Saint Andrews Hospital for 8 weeks. Thank you Dr Philip Hall. It’s a different configuration to the installation at QCA Project Gallery. The long wall of cellular forms remind me of what can be found on a blood slide. The Petri dishes of veins and cell are also replicating the glass slide form. Everything flows and the works feel very comfortable. Back at the studio it’s a put everything back in its place time. #artinhospitals #flyingartsalliance #qcagalleries #installation #installationart #chiffon #alchemy #veins #cells #cellular #neurons #hospital #art #artist #comtemporaryart #anatomy #saintandrewshospital #artheals #chryszantisart #textileart #contemporarytextileart #brains

I went to the Canadian Nature Museum yesterday with my family and it's just so beautiful 😍. It's still my favourite museum; the animals being my favourite part. Also the ice with the reflection on it was actually cold and that was really cool (haha I love it). The whole museum was freezing though and I had goosebumps the entire time. #museum #canada #canadian #canadiannaturemuseum #photography #art #animals #ice #seals #polarbear #explorecanada #travel #traveling #canadiangirl #exploremuseum #exploremuseums #artexhibition #brain #neurons #nature #environment #canadanature #canadiannature
Researchers have mapped each of the roughly 100,000 neurons in the poppy seed–size brain of an adult female fruit fly, according to a study published yesterday (July 19). Bock’s group sped up an imaging technique called serial section transmission electron microscopy to take 21 million images of thousands of different sections of the fruit fly brain. By putting together the images, the team has created an open-source database to give other laboratories the opportunity to peek into the fruit fly’s brain.

Practicing gratitude can increase your serotonin and dopamine levels, and can lead to activation of similar mechanisms and pathways as antidepressant medications. . Anyone that is familiar with Hebb’s law knows that “neurons that fire together wire together”. This means that regularly practicing gratitude can actually help change your brain in a positive way!

Following on from yesterday's post about my CV. Today I am going to work hard with focus. I have 4 hours. Tip I found was work 30 mins, break 5 mins and so on. If you work a full day factor in your lunch break. Little breaks, walk around and drink something, the neurons and pathways in your brain need liquid. Lunch should be light. Some people say drink every 20mins when working or revising, taking exams. It does make a difference. Scientifically proven. This chunking way of working can apply to household tasks too. I would probably have shorter work periods. Going to tackle my wardrobe and drawers too! #drinkwater #focus #chunking #neurons #pathwaysinthebrain #brainsneedwater #workpattern
Got questions? So do these nematodes. There’s still so much to learn about the brain, and our researchers here at QBI are paving the way to a better understanding of this complex organ, which will help us understand how to treat and prevent brain disorders.

“We are all connected; to each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.

Getting a balanced daily dose of neurotransmitters can keep us at the top of our game. Our brains release essential neurotransmitters when we have certain experiences. These hormones are vital for us to live in a high vibrational state. A great way to remember them is simply thinking of the acronym DOSE. 😉 👉Dopamine - The feeling we have when we achieve a goal or do some of our favorite activities and get excited. Keeping our dopamine levels high will keep us motivated and passionate for what we like to do.👉Oxytocin - This one is known as the bonding hormone. Healthy relationships, laughter, and connecting with others can stimulate this hormone.👉Serotonin - Gratefulness, self-appreciation, and a health self–esteem are a few things that can release this hormone.👉 Endorphins - It is that feeling we get when we are in a “zone” or overflowing with laughter. The barriers of pain can be pushed when experiencing endorphins.
#Repost @jhm.fundamentals with @get_repost ・・・ Our vision is shaped by the millions of rod and cone cells that help us to see. Sitting in the retina, these small neurons collect information from the light entering your eye and send it to your brain, which constructs images of the world around you. However, these cells don't act alone. The retina bipolar neurons pictured here in yellow and red help this process along. They act as an intermediary between your rods and cones and the brain, adjusting their function to help us adapt to bright or low light. #JHMFundamentals #Science #BasicScience #Biology #Instabiology #Research #BasicResearch #Medicine #vision #zebrafish #fish #ophthalmologist #ophthalmology #neurons #neuroscience #microscopy #photomicroscopy #fluorescent #fluorescence #scienceisbeatutiful #sciart #microphotography #rodsandcones #zebrafish #fish #fisheye

The perfect match! Compared to mice, Zebrafish have proven to not only be more research effective, but also more cost efficient. Zebrafish share about 71 percent of human DNA that can be modified inexpensively in great numbers. The Mumm Lab has been able to take advantage of this by pursuing large-scale genetic research initiatives in which they test tens of thousands of fish per day! #JHMFundamentals #Science #BasicScience #biology #instabiology #research #basicresearch #medicine #eye #zebrafish #fish #ophthalmologist #neurons #neuroscience #timelapse #immunology #regenerativemedicine #microscopy **Caption written by Kristen West, Elaine K.

Art or science? Tree or neuron? . . Don’t these trees from a painting by Disney background artist Eyvind Earle look like the neurons in the second picture? . . The second drawing by Ramon y Cajal (who won the Nobel Prize for this work in 1906) is of Purkinje neurons which are neurons found in the cerebellum of vertebrates that regulate motor coordination. . . This is what initially inspired me to write about the neuroscience of Sleeping Beauty (checkout the link in my bio!). And other people probably saw the resemblance because the many sensory branches of neurons are called dendrites which contains the Greek root “dendro” meaning tree! #eyvindearle #sleepingbeauty #dendrite #tree #neuron #science #sciart #ramonycajal #neurons #cerebellum #aurora #briarrose #neuroscience
