Carolyn Lacey, Scientific Outreach Manager of the Neurexpert blog, writes about an article in the European Journal of Neuroscience "Thalamic amplification of sensory input in experimental diabetes”. The authors of the article found that neurons in the thalamic ventral posteromedial nucleus from rats with experimental diabetic neuropathy showed increased ﬁring to precisely graded, multidirectional whisker deﬂection compared to non-diabetic rats.
Neurexpert was founded in 2011 to provide assays delivering data on compound potency and efficacy at the native target. These assays bridge a gap between in vitro and in vivo screens, confirming mechanism of action and provide essential functional and mechanistic data on the neural mechanisms underlying higher brain functions such as cognition and sensory processing.
