Implantable device could allow doctors to test cancer drugs in patients before prescribing chemotherapy.
New research shows that high-grade gliomas, the deadliest human brain tumors, increase their growth by hijacking some of the machinery of neuroplasticity, which normally helps the brain form new synapses.
Air pollution can shrink brains, lead to cognitive problems and even cause silent stokes, according to new research published by Stroke a journal of the American Heart Association.
Injections of the "love" hormone, oxytocin, let non-mother rats suddenly hear the ultrasonic distress sounds of mothers’ pups, according to a study in mice published in Nature.
The brains of babies 'light up' in a very similar way to adults when exposed to the same painful stimulus, a brain scanning study has discovered. It suggests that babies experience pain much like adults.
“Listen to your heart,” sang Swedish pop group Roxette in the late Eighties. But not everyone is able to tune into their heartbeat, according to an international team of researchers – and half of us under- or over-estimate our ability.
Findings reveal severe diabetes worsens Parkinson's symptoms.
A new study has found dramatic improvements in the care of patients with cirrhosis and liver failure and recommends improved treatment strategies for patients with cirrhosis and concurrent bacterial infections.
This method is delivering some promising results in early trials.
Access to high-quality medicine is a basic human right, but more than four billion people live in countries where many medications are substandard or fake.
Health experts have warned that a greater flexibility must be brought to medical trials to combat diseases like Ebola to avoid facing another nightmare outbreak.
One of the main sessions at this year’s Experimental Biology Conference in Boston was the Tang Prize Award lecture.
A single cell type in the skin of mice is a major contributor to scarring after wound healing or radiation damage, and facilitates the growth of melanoma. Blocking the cell’s activity in humans may be possible with currently approved drugs.
Research suggests strategy to prevent relapse after therapies targeting tumor blood vessels.
There will be 60,000 annual cases of chronic subdural hematoma (SDH) by 2030, making SDH the U.S.’s most common adult brain surgery disorder, says a new study by New York University (NYU) researchers.

Staining method brings the reconstruction of all nerve cells and their connections within reach.
Using a weak electric current to alter a specific brain activity pattern, UNC School of Medicine researchers increased creativity in healthy adults. Now they’re testing the same experimental protocol to alleviate symptoms in people with depression.
More cancer patients are getting the genes in their tumors mapped to help guide their treatment. New research suggests that isn't always accurate enough, and a second test could help ferret out the culprit genes.
