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.
Bones found in an Italian cave over two decades ago might have provided the oldest Neanderthal...
In middle-schoolers, neuroscientists find differences in brain structures where knowledge is...
The team of investigators will present their findings this week at the annual American Academy...
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.
Tags on DNA from fathers’ sperm linked to children’s autism symptoms.
A wearable device that emits low-level electrical fields can slow the progression of glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer, and extend patients’ lifespans.
Apple, Johnson & Johnson, and Medtronic will be partners on this program.
This company is offering a peculiar treatment.
Electrical recordings directly from the human brain show remarkable precision in the coordination of widely distributed regions involved in memory recall, at rest and during sleep.
French biopharmaceutical company DBV Technologies moves closer to bringing its peanut allergy patch to market, receiving Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as it prepares to launch its Phase 3 trial.
New research shows that males with higher ‘reproductive potential’ are better distance runners. This may have been used by females as a reliable signal of high male genetic quality during our hunter-gatherer past, as good runners are more likely to have other traits of good hunters and providers, such as intelligence and generosity.
When children are unmotivated at school, new research suggests their genes may be part of the equation.
Investors did not seem pleased by these results.
The Asia-Pacific non-vascular stents market, consisting of urinary tract, pancreatic and biliary, enteral, and airway stents, will expand in value from $148.1 million in 2013 to $223.8 million by 2021.
Genetic studies in humans, zebrafish and mice have revealed how two different types of genetic variations team up to cause a rare condition called Hirschsprung’s disease.
A test that detects fetal DNA in the mother’s bloodstream is more accurate than conventional screening at identifying Down syndrome (aka trisomy 21), finds a new study led by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center and UCSF.
By revealing loss of motor skills, typing patterns may help to identify early onset of Parkinson’s.
A research team from the University of Houston has created an algorithm that allowed a man to grasp a bottle and other objects with a prosthetic hand, powered only by his thoughts.
Playing music by professional musicians activates genes responsible for brain function and singing of songbirds.
HIV can establish itself in the brain as soon as four months after initial infection.
Researchers suggest that your brain is making a simpler calculation when you shop.
A team of researchers has validated the first standardized protocol for measuring one of the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
Using a novel approach that homes in on rare families severely affected by autism, a Johns Hopkins-led team of researchers has identified a new genetic cause of the disease.
New research from Rockefeller University identifies a molecular cascade known as the contact system, which may provide opportunities for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease through simple blood tests.
Bioscience Technology caught up with Susan Harkema Ph.D., professor and rehabilitation research director of the University of Louisville’s Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center, to discuss her research and new funding awarded by Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation for epidural stimulation.
Having a strong sense that your life has meaning and direction may make you less likely to develop areas of brain damage caused by blockages in blood flow as you age.
Liberians are overcoming their fears of Ebola to volunteer for a vaccine trial.
A new study by UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco researchers finds that giving a drug that changes the neurochemical balance in the prefrontal cortex of the brain causes a greater willingness to engage in prosocial behaviors, such as ensuring that resources are divided more equally.
