Damage to highly connected regions of white matter in the brain following injury is more predictive of cognitive impairment than damage to highly connected gray matter hubs.
Older people who feel or act younger than their biological age tend to have better cognitive function, lower stress, and less inflammation than their peers who feel their age.
Students who embarked on online learning went to bed, on average, thirty minutes later than they did while entered into in-person learning. They also slept less efficiently and napped more during the day.
Both sleep and seizures reduce heart rate, a new study into mortality and epilepsy reveal. Seizures also disrupt the natural regulation of sleep-related changes. This can sometimes prove deadly and increase the risk of sudden death in epilepsy patients.
Study reveals the molecular clues as to why some neurons are susceptible to death in Alzheimer’s disease while others aren’t.
Using exercise programs that help boost motor skills can help reduce problems with impulse control and aid cognitive development in children born preterm.
When necrotic cells expose phosphatidylserine on their outer surfaces, and when phagocytes detect it, the phagocytes ingest and destroy the dying cells.
Researchers identify five genetic loci linked to the progression of Parkinson’s disease.
Glioblastoma can mimic the normal repair of white matter in the brain, causing the tumor to become less malignant. Additionally, a drug commonly prescribed for asthma can help suppress glioblastoma growth in mouse models.
A new study reports on an association between specific gut bacteria species and the manifestation of neurodegenerative disorders.
The cerebellum underwent evolutionary changes that may have contributed to the development of language, culture, and tool use in humans, a new study reveals.
The post Brain Wave Recordings Reveal Potential for Individualized Parkinson’s Treatments appeared first on The BRAIN Initiative.
Obesity has been linked to severely restricted blood flow in the brain. Reduced blood flow in the brain, or cerebral hypoperfusion, can be an early indicator of vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
A newly developed system that uses OCT imaging and deep learning should enable better detection and monitoring of glaucoma.
Eating a Mediterranean-style diet can help protect the brain from tau protein build-up and brain shrinkage associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Findings suggest developing HDAC6 inhibitors could be a novel new therapeutic avenue for the treatment of migraines.
KLS-13019, a novel CBD analog, shows promise at reversing pain sensitivity and preventing symptoms of neuropathy in mouse models of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.
Almost fifty percent of people who have children with partners suffering from schizophrenia or bipolar disorder also have mental health challenges, a new study reports.
Mouse study reveals females with the EPHB2 genetic mutation are at greater risk of autism.
People who were touched by conversational humanoid robots report positive emotional states and were more likely to comply with requests made by the robot.
