[01/09/2014] The public only notices diseases when celebrities become patients: in the spring of 2014, Formula One driver Michael Schumacher fell into a coma for several months as the result of a head injury caused by a skiing accident. These types of accidents show how delicate the brain responds to injuries. Brain stimulation could possibly support the rehabilitation of vegetative patients.Persistent vegetative state: brain stimulation with laser beams - Read more

Mechanism After a Stressful Event: "The dynorphin opioid receptor system decreases the intensity of stress memory“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[03/12/2012] Forgetting stressful events isn’t always easy, especially when they have been deeply committed to human memory. Scientists at the Universities of Bonn and Berlin have now discovered a mechanism that inhibits the ability to forget fear after a stressful incident. They demonstrated in experiments that subsiding fear does not happen if not enough dynorphin is dumped in the brain.
