Neurons responsible for motion sickness identified

The information we perceive from movement travels from the inner ear to areas of the brain called the vestibular nuclei, which play an important role in motion sickness. Researchers from the Mitochondrial neuropathology and the University of Washington have now identified in mice which specific neurons transmit the signals that cause this discomfort. The study has been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Read the article

The Human Lab research group of the Institut de Neurociències receives a grant from the Alicia Koplowitz Foundation

The Human Lab research group, in collaboration with Dr. Albert Quintana, has received funding from the Fundación Alicia Koplowitz's "Ayudas a proyectos de Investigación 2023" call. The study is focused on individual differences in response to stress and evaluates different biomarkers and parameters of early adversity. The final goal is to describe the risk and protective factors to develop trajectories of disruptive or prosocial behaviors.
