In 2022, Feinberg established research into social determinants of health as a priority. To better understand the impact of social determinants of health, Feinberg investigators have been leading studies that provide new insights into how a person’s neighborhood can positively or negatively affect their health.
Northwestern Medicine investigators have identified how a calcium channel in the nervous system contributes to brain inflammation, according to a study published in Nature Communications.
A new Northwestern Medicine study has discovered that a key emotional brain center, the amygdala, releases endogenous cannabinoid molecules under stress, and these molecules dampen the incoming stress alarm from the hippocampus, a memory and emotion center in the brain.
