Neuroscientists Find Brain Stem Cells that May Be Responsible for Higher Functions, Bigger Brains

The finding from the Mueller lab paves the way for scientists to produce these neurons in culture—a first step in developing better treatments for cognitive disorders such as schizophrenia and autism.

Study Shows Two-Drug Combination Has Potential to Fight Cocaine Addiction

Work from the Koob lab shows a fine-tuned combination of two existing pharmaceutical drugs made laboratory rats less likely to take cocaine compulsively.

Clinical Trials Start for Stroke Drug Developed by Scripps Research Institute, USC, and ZZ Biotech

The experimental drug, developed in part by Professor John Griffin’s lab, may extend the window for effective stroke treatment.

Scientist Awarded $1.9 Million to Study Food Intake and Metabolism

The NIH grant to Associate Professor Andrew Butler will fund a study on the pathways that regulate the timing of our desire for food throughout the day.
