Infants at 7 months of age who go on to develop autism are slower to reorient their gaze and attention from one object to another when compared to 7-month-olds who do not develop autism, and this behavioral pattern is in part explained by atypical brain circuits.
A new study finds increased amyloid levels in the brains of unmedicated hypertensive adults with a genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers discover stem cells from a patient’s own fat could potentially deliver new treatments directly to the brain after the removal of a glioblastoma, the most common form of brain cancer.
Deep Brain Stimulation Shows Promise for Patients with Chronic, Treatment Resistant Anorexia Nervosa
Researchers observe weight gain and improved mental state in some patients with chronic anorexia nervosa as a result of deep brain stimulation.
Using EEG to track brain activity, researchers identify distinctive brain patterns associated with general anesthesia as patients lost and regained consciousness.
Researchers announce the discovery of a chemical probe, UNC1215, which could be used to investigate the function of malignant brain tumor domain proteins.
A new study identifies a potential treatment window of several years for plaques in the brain considered to cause memory loss in diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Researchers find that, compared with neurotypical children, those with autism have multiple redundant connections between neighboring brain areas at the expense of long-distance links.
Using a sugar-coated scaffold, researchers move closer to unlocking the therapeutic use of stem cells to treat a wide range of diseases from Alzheimer’s to diabetes.
A new study discovers molecular pathways that could lead to new targeted therapies which may potentially treat Glioblastoma, the most common and lethal form of brain cancer in adults.
