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.
The new study describes in detail the loss of connectivity between two sets of neurons that prevents the formation of long-term memory.
Three startups are taking advantage of new technology to help patients get treatment for various diseases all over the world.
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.
Postmortem brain slices can be “read” to determine how a mouse was trained to behave in response to specific sounds.
The prevailing medical wisdom that Alzheimer's Disease has its origins in the brain has a radical and disputed rival with shocking implications for medicine's relentless efforts to forestall disease, ageing and death, according to a new review of the evidence.
Research suggests anti-aging benefits of calorie restriction without the restriction.
Following the traces of evolution: researches find a key to the reproduction of brain stem cells
Highlighting a potential target in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) and Alzheimer’s disease, new research suggests that triggering a protein found on the surface of brain cells may help slow the progression of these and other neurological diseases.
A team of scientists has developed a method for identifying clusters of neurons that work in concert to guide the behavior.
A study by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators has discovered two groups of neurons that play key roles in social interactions between primates – one that is activated when deciding whether to cooperate with another individual and another group involved in predicting what the other will do.
Study participants inhaled nicotine, yet they showed significantly different brain activity.
Researchers have designed a molecule that, if developed into a drug, could slow the progression of Parkinson's Disease.
Findings point to role of natural selection in disease.
Unexpected findings have implications for anti-obesity therapies.
Neurons hum at different frequencies to tell the brain which memories it should store.
The study showed that skin biopsies can be used to detect elevated levels of abnormal proteins found in the two diseases.
Using advanced DNA sequencing methods, researchers have identified a new gene that is associated with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Researchers have identified a distinctive brain signature in people with melancholic depression, supporting calls for its classification as a unique mood disorder type.
A new study conducted by a researcher at the George Washington University suggests that the right hemisphere of the brain may be able to assist a damaged left hemisphere in protecting visual attention after a stroke.
The pathological process amyloidosis, in which misfolded proteins (amyloids) form insoluble fibril deposits, occurs in many diseases, including Alzheimer disease (AD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D).
Research suggests that fetal exposure to chemicals or drugs can cause neurological problems. Babies whose mothers take the epilepsy drug valporic acid (VPA) during pregnancy, for example, appear to have an elevated risk of developing an autism spectrum disorder.
