The connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain strengthen during sleep for children. This strengthening could help brain functions mature, a new study suggests.
Researchers discover the decline in brain function, which occurs during normal aging, is influenced by genetics.
Researchers discover an unusual occupational hazard for teachers. Progressive speech and language problems are more prevalent in those who teach than those with Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers find brain regions associated with memory shrink as adults age. This decrease in size is more pronounced in those who later develop neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
A new study provides insights into the neural origins of hot flashes associated with menopause.
Vocal training of older rats reduces some of the voice problems associated with aging, new research suggests. The findings could help treat people with presbyphonia.
Researchers find the SIRT1 gene, which is commonly associated with aging, also helps regulate circadian rhythm.
Researchers suggest increased clumsiness in older adults might be caused by changes in the mental frame of reference used to visualize nearby objects.
Researchers discover a slight decline in fine motor skills associated with aging, with a marked drop in ability for those aged 64 and older.
