In an encouraging development for consumers worried about antibiotics in their milk, a new Food...
Researchers have developed a new technique to understand the actions of key proteins required...
Stroke can lead to a wide range of problems such as depression and difficulty moving, speaking and paying attention. A new study has found compelling evidence that stroke damage to “cables” buried inside the brain plays an important role in these impairments.
Stem cell researchers have shown that a novel stem cell gene therapy method could lead to a one-time, lasting treatment for sickle cell disease — the nation’s most common inherited blood disorder.
Neuroscientists find that different parts of the brain work best at different ages.
Prenatal exposure to low doses of the environmental contaminants polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, change the developing brain in an area involved in metabolism, and some effects are apparent even two generations later, a new study finds.
Thousands of genetic “dimmer” switches, regions of DNA known as regulatory elements, were turned up high during human evolution in the developing cerebral cortex, according to new research.
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.
People with poor physical fitness in their 40s may have accelerated brain aging by the time they hit 60.
Mapping a fruit fly's brain, neuron by neuron, to study how brain controls behavior.
A provocative study in mice suggests something as simple as breathing in extra oxygen might give immune cells a boost in attacking cancer.
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.
