Ligand- and voltage-gated Ca2+ channels differentially regulate the mode of vesicular neuropeptide release in mammalian sensory neurons
Neuropeptides released from dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons play essential roles in the neurotransmission of sensory inputs, including those underlying nociception and pathological pain. Neuropeptides are released from intracellular vesicles through two modes: a partial release mode called "kiss-and-run" (KAR) and a full release mode called "full fusion–like" (FFL). Using total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, we traced the release of pH-sensitive green fluorescent protein–tagged neuropeptide Y (pHluorin-NPY) from individual dense-core vesicles in the soma and axon of single DRG neurons af...

A Report from SOMA SA 2017
Charlotte, N.C. - During EMS Week 2017, I had the good fortune to attend the Special Operations Medical Association’s 2017 Scientific Assembly (SOMA SA) held at Charlotte Convention Center. Picture a conference filled with camouflage and dress uniforms. Medics and medical teams from the US Army “Green Berets” and Rangers; US Navy SEALS; US Air Force Pararescue; US Coast Guard Tactical Teams, and other “special operators” from NATO partner forces across the globe coming together for medical learning and information sharing.  Military nurses, PAs, physicians/surgeons, clinical researchers and even representati...

Stressing the brain through technology may reduce age-related disease
(Bentham Science Publishers) In this Opinion paper the researchers discuss how a meaningful and intentional integration with technology, which hormetically challenges our cognition, may redress the conflict for resources between the soma and the germline, and result in a reduction of age-related dysfunction in participating humans.

Three-dimensional Ca2+ imaging advances understanding of astrocyte biology
Astrocyte communication is typically studied by two-dimensional calcium ion (Ca2+) imaging, but this method has not yielded conclusive data on the role of astrocytes in synaptic and vascular function. We developed a three-dimensional two-photon imaging approach and studied Ca2+ dynamics in entire astrocyte volumes, including during axon-astrocyte interactions. In both awake mice and brain slices, we found that Ca2+ activity in an individual astrocyte is scattered throughout the cell, largely compartmented between regions, preponderantly local within regions, and heterogeneously distributed regionally and locally. Processes...

Brain is 10 times more active than previously measured, UCLA researchers find
A new UCLA study could change scientists ’ understanding of how the brain works — and could lead to new approaches for treating neurological disorders and for developing computers that “think” more like humans.The research focused on the structure and function of dendrites, which are components of neurons, the nerve cells in the brain. Neurons are large, tree-like structures made up of a body, the soma, with numerous branches called dendrites extending outward. Somas generate brief electrical pulses called “spikes” in order to connect and communicate with each other. Scientists had generally believed that the s...

Rescuers in Turkey Search for 12 Missing Miners; 4 Dead
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Rescue teams recovered another body from a copper mine that collapsed in southeastern Turkey, officials said Friday, raising the death toll to four. A rescue operation to find 12 miners still missing was underway, but the head of Turkey's crisis management agency, Halis Bilden, said chances of reaching them alive were slim. "I don't believe that we will be able to reach them alive," Bilden told reporters from the mine site in televised comments. "I cannot say that we have reached signs of life." The privately-owned mine near the town of Sirvan, in Siirt province caved in late Thu...
