Our cerebellar nuclei turn out to be more important than initially thought

Our cerebellar nuclei turn out to be more important than initially thought

Associative learning was always thought to be regulated by the cortex of the cerebellum, often referred to as the “little brain”. However, new research from a collaboration between the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, Erasmus MC, and Champalimaud Center for the Unknown reveals that actually the nuclei of the cerebellum make a surprising contribution to this […]

Harmless or hormone disorder?

Harmless or hormone disorder?

Excessive drinking can be a medically harmless habit, but it can also indicate a rare hormone disorder. Several tests for reliable diagnosis have been examined in the past, but now a new study shows that a saline infusion stimulation test has the highest reliability. Julie Refardt, an internist-endocrinologist and staff member of the Department of […]
