Facial Pain Comes to Light
 Neurons that glow under the microscope offer insight into safer pain reliefIn Brief:Using an imaging technique to visualize pain signals in facial nerves, NIDCR researchers identified a protein that enhances neurons ’ responses to painful stimuli.Blocking the protein in mice blunted pain signaling; the results could inform development of safer, non-opioid pain therapies.The scientists used fluorescence to track surges of pain signaling molecules in facial nerves, which flicker like twinkling lights in response to certain types of pain-related stimuli. | Minghan Hu and Andrew DoyleFrom a throbbing tooth or aching ja...

TRPV1 and Migraines
Conclusion-the present findings indicate that insulin may activate TRPV1 receptors in the trigeminovascular system. Modified TRPV1 receptor function induced by insulin may also increase the sensitivity of both neural and vascular TRPV1 receptor for its agonists. Our data may provide a pathophysiological basis for the increased incidence of migraine in patients with hyperinsulin levels. (Source: Neuromics)

AI spots neurons better than human experts
(Duke University) A combination of optical coherence tomography (OCT), adaptive optics and deep neural networks can easily and precisely track changes in the number and shape of retinal ganglion cells in the eye. This new AI-driven method can enable better diagnosis and monitoring for neuron-damaging eye and brain diseases like glaucoma. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Bilateral visual projections exist in non-teleost bony fish and predate the emergence of tetrapods
In most vertebrates, camera-style eyes contain retinal ganglion cell neurons that project to visual centers on both sides of the brain. However, in fish, ganglion cells were thought to innervate only the contralateral side, suggesting that bilateral visual projections appeared in tetrapods. Here we show that bilateral visual projections exist in non-teleost fishes and that the appearance of ipsilateral projections does not correlate with terrestrial transition or predatory behavior. We also report that the developmental program that specifies visual system laterality differs between fishes and mammals, as the Zic2 transcri...
