Neuroscience

norepinephrine

Biology; Neuroscience

Catecholamine hormone and neurotransmitter that binds to α- and β-adrenergic receptors, both of which are G-protein-coupled receptors. Also known as noradrenaline.

epinephrine (adrenaline)

Biology; Neuroscience

Catecholamine hormone and neurotransmitter that binds to - and -adrenergic G-proteincoupled receptors.

norepinephrine (noradrenaline)

Biology; Neuroscience

Catecholamine hormone and neurotransmitter that binds to - and -adrenergic receptors, both of which are G-protein-coupled receptors.

apoptosis

Biology; Neuroscience

Cell death resulting from a programmed pattern of gene expression; also known as “programmed cell death.”

laminae

Biology; Neuroscience

Cell layers that characterize the neocortex, hippocampus, and cerebellar cortex. The gray matter of the spinal cord is also arranged in laminae.

active transporters

Biology; Neuroscience

Cell membrane molecules that consume energy to move ions up their concentration gradients, thus restoring and/or maintaining normal concentration gradients across cell membranes.

neuron

Biology; Neuroscience

Cell specialized for the conduction and transmission of electrical signals in the nervous system.
