The study, published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, surveyed 209 autistic adults and 228 non-autistic … Read More
School of Dentistry researchers in collaboration from researchers from the School of Medicine’s Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Physiology & Pharmacology published a study in The Journal of Neuroscience Research that is the first to link blood pressure with the production and secretion of a protein in nerve cells known as BDNF, or Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor. It appears that pressure-sensitive nerve cell production of BDNF increases substantially during hypertension, which suggests that this research has serious implications for the … Read More
