StratNeuro's mission is to integrate clinical and basic research and to foster a new generation of leaders and scientists in translational neuroscience.
Scientists create the sensation of invisibility
A team of researchers from the Department of neuroscience reports a perceptual illusion of having an invisible body and show that the feeling of invisibility changes our physical stress response in challenging social situations.
Discovery explains how receptor regulates fat accumulation in obesity
The sensitivity of fat cells to signals that increase the breakdown of fat is linked to the receptor ALK7, according to a study by researchers at Karolinska Institutet led by Carlos Ibáñez at Neuro. The discovery suggests that ALK7 might be an interesting target for future strategies to treat obesity.
How physical exercise protects the brain from stress-induced depression
Physical exercise has many beneficial effects on human health, including the protection from stress-induced depression. However, until now the mechanisms that mediate this protective effect have been unknown.
