Full, but Still Feasting: Mouse Study Reveals How the Urge to Eat Overpowers the Signal to Stop

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

A new study explores the mystery of what drives eating past the point of fullness, at the most basic level in the brain. It shows that two tiny clusters of cells battle for control of feeding behavior -- and the one that drives eating overpowers the one that says to stop. It also shows that the brain’s own natural opioid system gets involved – and that blocking it with the drug naloxone can stop over-eating.

Drug Overdose Epidemic Has Been Growing Exponentially For Decades

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

Death rates from drug overdoses in the U.S. have been on an exponential growth curve that began at least 15 years before the mid-1990s surge in opioid prescribing, suggesting that overdose death rates may continue along this same historical growth trajectory for years to come.

Researchers Identify Potential Target to Improve Sleep in Children

Arizona State University (ASU)

Between 25 and 30% of children under the age of 18 in the United States do not get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation in children can lead to behavioral and mood problems that can negatively affect school performance, social interactions and physical wellbeing. Children from lower-middle-class families or families who live at or near the poverty line get less sleep and lower quality sleep than their peers from families with more income and resources. In a study that will be published in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence, researchers in the Arizona State University Department of Psychology have uncovered a potential mechanism that explains why children living in lower socioeconomic situations experience less and poorer sleep than their wealthier counterparts. The study is currently available online.

First Particle Tracks Seen in Prototype for International Neutrino Experiment

Brookhaven National Laboratory

The largest liquid-argon neutrino detector in the world has just recorded its first particle tracks, signaling the start of a new chapter in the story of the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). DUNE’s scientific mission is dedicated to unlocking the mysteries of neutrinos, the most abundant (and most mysterious) matter particles in the universe.
