Mapping a fruit fly's brain, neuron by neuron, to study how brain controls behavior.
People with poor physical fitness in their 40s may have accelerated brain aging by the time they...
A study reveals for the first time exactly how mutations associated with the most common form of...
A provocative study in mice suggests something as simple as breathing in extra oxygen might give...
Testing breast cancer cells for how closely they resemble stem cells could identify women with the most aggressive disease, a new study suggests.
Implanted stem cells reduced symptoms of disease during experiment, researchers say.
Researchers at Aalto University and University of Turku have revealed how obesity is associated with altered opioid neurotransmission in the brain.
New findings could help with future navigational problems associated with Alzheimer’s and other neurological disorders.
Certain neurons act as conductors, suggesting possible therapies for disorders such as schizophrenia.
Amyloid – an abnormal protein whose accumulation in the brain is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease – starts accumulating inside neurons of people as young as 20, a much younger age than scientists ever imagined, reports a surprising new study.
Tumor recurrence following a period of remission is the main cause of death in cancer. The ability of cancer cells to remain dormant during and following therapy, only to be reactivated at a later time, frequently with greater aggressiveness, is one of the least-understood aspects of the disease.
The new study describes in detail the loss of connectivity between two sets of neurons that prevents the formation of long-term memory.
When salmon, salamanders or other aquatic animals poop or shed skin cells, they leave behind traces of their DNA in the water, like clues left behind at a crime scene.
Tiny particles embedded in gel can turn off drug-resistance genes, then release cancer drugs.
The United Nations is urging donors, organizations and countries fighting Ebola in West Africa not to give in to complacency as the death toll from the virus climbs toward 10,000.
Study in mice identifies mechanism that lowers levels of dopamine and heightens behavior suggesting anxiety and depression.
Cells provide individualized model for studying obesity and testing treatments.
Mouse studies may lead to development of human therapies.
Postmortem brain slices can be “read” to determine how a mouse was trained to behave in response to specific sounds.
