Summary: People with higher levels of lutein, a nutrient commonly found in kale and eggs, were more cognitively on par with younger people than their peers with lower lutein levels, a new study reports.
Summary: Researchers at King’s College London report transcranial direct current stimulation can help to improve cognitive function in those with Schizophrenia. The researchers found the improvement in cognitive […]
Neuroscience News wrote a new post, Toddlers Begin Learning Rules of Reading and Writing at Very Early Age, on the site Neuroscience News 17 hours, 52 minutes ago
Summary: A new study reveals that by the age of three, children are already starting to follow complex rules and patterns that govern how letters fit together to make words.
Exposure to […]
Summary: A new computer system is able to see hand poses and track multiple people in real time. Researchers say that being able to detect nuances of non-verbal communication, robots will be better able to […]
Summary: EEG tests reveal children on the autism spectrum have lower peak alpha frequency than their peers not on the spectrum. Additionally, the lower the peak alpha frequency, the lower a child’s non-verbal IQ […]
Summary: A new study using university students reveals those with high psychopathic traits showed a significantly reduces response time when being prompted to lie following training than those low levels of the […]
Summary: Using a combination of brain stimulation, physical exercise and computer based cognitive training, researchers report people were better at specific skill learning than when using cognitive training […]
Summary: A new study in eLife provides new insights into how complex neural processes in the brains of dragonflies allows them to predict, peruse and catch prey. The findings could prove useful in developing new […]
Summary: A new study reveals dialects move outwards from population centers, which may explain why some cities have their own dialects, researchers say.

Summary: A new study in the BMJ links antidepressant use in pregnant women to a very small increased risk of autism in their offspring. Researchers discovered 4.1% of children exposed to antidepressants while in […]
Summary: A new study confirms those on the autism spectrum are hypersensitive to pain. The new study from UT Dallas researchers also demonstrated people with ASD showed greater neural responses in the anterior […]
Summary: Researchers find brain areas associated with pain and empathy may be involved in the social transfer of pain in mice.
Pain sensitivity associated with alcohol withdrawal may activate […]
Summary: A new Nature Neuroscience study provides evidence that necroptosis is linked to cognitive decline and severity of Alzheimer’s disease. The finding that necroptosis is activated in Alzheimer’s provides a […]
Summary: A new optogenetic method called Optobow is helping researchers to discover specific and individual components of functional neural networks in the living brain. A Nature Communications report states this […]
Summary: A simple eye test may be a useful tool in helping to diagnose ASD, a new study reports. Researchers measured eye movement in those on the autism spectrum and found they continually missed a specific […]
