Neurons Responsible for Motion Sickness Identified

The information we perceive from movement travels from the inner ear to areas of the brain called the vestibular nuclei, which play an important role in motion sickness. Researchers from the UAB Institut de Neurociències (INc-UAB) and the University of Washington have now identified in mice which specific neurons transmit the signals that cause this discomfort. The study has been published in PNAS. The open-access article is titled Vestibular CCK Signaling Drives Motion Sickness–Like Behavior in Mice.”
