Chemesthesis Pain Reduction from Capsaicin and/or Allyl Isothiocyanate (AITC) When Introducing Humulene and Myrcene

Curtis H. Breville
The pain experienced when ea%ng spicy foods such as peppers, wasabi, horseradish, or spicy mustard come from par%cular natural compounds binding to specific receptors in our mouth on nerve endings communica%ng with the sensory cortex. When concentrated, compounds humulene and myrcene, both existent in different ra%os in varie%es of hops (humulus lupulus), bind to the TRPM8 receptor. While bound to this receptor at the same %me as either capsaicin is bound to the TRPV1 receptor or allyl isothiocy...

Evaluating the Role of SEMA3’s in Spinal Cord Injuries

Yahvi A. Shah
Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are severe and life-changing conditions that result in the disruption of neural pathways and the loss of motor and sensory functions below the site of injury. Finding effective treatment strategies to promote nerve regeneration and functional recovery in SCI patients is a significant challenge for researchers studying neurotrauma. Recent studies have suggested that Semaphorin 3 (SEMA3) proteins, which are primarily involved in guiding nerve growth during development, ...
