Scripps: Scientists Pinpoint Regulator of Amphetamine-Induced Motor Activity

In new findings that could have an impact on the development of therapies for a number of currently untreatable brain disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have found for the first time that a specific signaling circuit in the brain is deeply involved in motor activity.

The study, which was led by TSRI’s Associate Professor Srinivasa Subramaniam, was published as the cover story in the latest issue of the journal Science Signaling.
