When dieting, hunger-mediating AgRP neurons receive stronger signals, inducing synaptic plasticity. This may explain why people tend to eat more after a diet and regain the weight they have lost.
A specific pathway of nerves and cells that link the gut to the brain may be responsible for chronic gut pain. Chronic gut pain is commonly associated with IBS, and mental health disorders including anxiety and depression.
Older adults with depression showed increased signs of accelerated biological aging, including poorer brain and overall health compared to their peers without depression.
Study reveals how the "love hormone" oxytocin plays a critical role in the formation of emotional contagion.

Earlier diagnosis and extensive early services may account for the higher number of children diagnosed with ASD in California.
Science research articles covering neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.
Shorter telomere length was associated with multiple changes in the brain associated with dementia, a new study reports.
Exercise helps to improve the severity of the movement-related symptoms and the overall well-being of those suffering from Parkinson's disease.
Elite football players are 1.5 times more likely to develop a neurodegenerative disorder such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, or ALS than the general population.
DNA designer therapeutics restored levels of a protein critical to motor neuron function, restoring the activity that is impaired as a result of ALS.
Infants who are born preterm do not habituate to repeated pain the same way in which full-term babies or adults do. Researchers believe this is because preterm infants have not yet developed the mechanism that enables people to adapt to moderate pain, which is thought to develop during the third trimester of pregnancy.
Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.
Melatonin reduces self-harm in young people with depression and anxiety. The effects were more pronounced in females with anxiety and depression.
Children and adolescents who report having a strong relationship with their parents have better long-term health outcomes, a new study reports.
