Observing whole-brain activity in live zebrafish, researchers have discovered how information stored as long-term memory in the cerebral cortex is processed to guide behavioral choices.
Researchers discover a connection between the quantity of CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain and PTSD.
Researchers have identified biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease which accurately predict the development of the disease years prior to symptoms developing.
Researchers have successfully tested a new vaccine in primates to battle cocaine addiction. Using neuroimaging techniques, they demonstrated the vaccine prevents cocaine from reaching the brain and producing a dopamine induced high. Human trials could begin within the next year.
Using neuroimaging, researchers discovered glutamate levels are abnormally high in people with restless leg syndrome. The higher the level of glutamate in patients with RLS, the less sleep they were able to get.
Anti-Smoking Ads with Strong Arguments, Not Flashy Editing, Trigger Part of Brain That Changes Behavior
Researchers discovered a part of the brain involved in future behavioral changes, the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex, had greater activation when smokers were exposed to anti-smoking messages with stronger arguments as opposed to weaker arguments.
Researchers evaluate the pathological impact of single incident TBI and mild, repetitive traumatic brain injury, in order to learn which measures need to be taken to identify risk, early incidence and to reduce long term complications associated with TBI.
First Neutron Scattering Experiments on Brain Tissue Reveal Weaknesses in Formaldehyde Preservation, Reducing Reliability of Post-Mortem Analysis
A new study demonstrates the power of neutrons to model cellular water diffusion in brain tissue.
