Neurosurgeons have developed a new way to perform deep brain stimulation surgeries. The new technique allows for more accurate placement of the electrodes in the brain and is likely to be safer for patients.
Using laboratory mice, researchers show anesthesia’s neurotoxic effects depend upon the age of the neurons in the brain and not the age of the animal undergoing anesthesia.
New research finds an increased risk for cognitive decline in patients with cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
Researchers suggest measuring blood flow in the brain could be an easy and noninvasive way to predict hemorrhage or stroke in children receiving cardiac or respiratory support though ECMO technique.
According to researchers, extremely low doses of THC can protect the brain both before and after injury.
Researchers discover traumatic brain injuries generate tau oligomers, a protein associated with Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. The discovery could provide insight into lasting brain damage caused by TBI.
Researchers uncover a key to the development of the peripheral nervous system, providing new hope to patients suffering from hereditary neuropathy.
Using MRI neuroimaging technology, researchers were able to predict the risk for cerebrovascular disease in patients.
Using mouse models, researchers discover TSPO ligands can significantly decrease Alzheimer’s related symptoms and improve memory. The discovery could lead to preventative and new treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease.
New research suggests the integrity of the blood brain barrier is compromised for days after an ischemic stroke. This can lead to serious, life threatening complications. Repairing the BBB could prevent further complications.
