Science news articles cover neuroscience, neurology, psychology, AI, mental health, robotics, neurotechnology and cognitive sciences.

A new study introduces BARseq—a rapid, cost-effective method for mapping brain cells, revealing new insights into how our brains are structured at a cellular level. Researchers used BARseq to classify millions of neurons across multiple mouse brains, discovering unique 'cellular signatures' that define each brain region.
A new study highlights the challenges and advancements in detecting AI-generated videos. Researchers have found that traditional digital media detection methods falter against videos produced by AI, such as those created by the Sora generator from OpenAI.
A new study demonstrates how spinal cord injuries can lead to significant metabolic disruptions, including the onset of conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. The study found that abnormal neuronal activities post-injury lead to excessive breakdown of triglycerides in fat tissue, releasing harmful compounds into organs like the liver.

Neurology news articles cover neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.

Neurons in Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to re-enter the cell cycle and quickly progress to senescence. Using advanced snRNA-seq techniques, researchers analyzed over 30,000 nuclei to track these changes, finding that these neurons often fail to complete the cell cycle and instead show signs of aging.
A new study reveals a biological link between enjoying nature and reduced inflammation levels, which could help in preventing or managing chronic inflammation-related diseases like heart disease and diabetes. The study analyzed data from the Midlife in the U.S. (MIDUS) survey, focusing on 1,244 participants, and found that frequent positive interactions with nature correlated with lower levels of three key inflammation markers.
Researchers are pioneering the use of artificial intelligence to explore how the gut microbiome influences Alzheimer’s disease. Their latest study employs AI to analyze how metabolites produced by gut bacteria interact with cellular receptors, potentially contributing to Alzheimer's development.

AI news articles cover science articles about artificial intelligence including ChatGPT, Bard, Dalle, neural networks, machine learning, LLMs, AGI and other AI related topics.

Researchers used artificial intelligence (AI) to improve early screening and prognosis of Dry Eye Disease (DED), which affects up to 30% of the global population. The researchers developed an AI-driven approach that leverages images and personal risk factors to diagnose and manage DED effectively.
Researchers developed a method using wearable headcams and AI to analyze teenagers' facial expressions, revealing subtle emotional nuances. This technology has shown potential in identifying emotions such as worry and happiness, even when they are masked.
Researchers used AI to discover hundreds of genes linked to tobacco use disorder, alongside potential new treatments. Analyzing extensive health data, the team identified genetic variations that contribute to tobacco addiction, which affects 1.3 billion people globally.

Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.

A new study highlights the widespread feelings of isolation and burnout among parents, with 66% reporting feelings of loneliness due to parenting demands. The study, involving parents across various demographics, shows that 62% experience burnout, and 38% lack supportive networks.
A new study reveals a strong correlation between diet and brain health. Analyzing dietary data and health indicators from 181,990 UK Biobank participants, the study found that a balanced diet is crucial for cognitive function, mental well-being, and brain structure. Enhanced cognitive functions and increased grey matter were notably linked to varied, nutritious diets.
Low to moderate intensity exercise significantly reduces depression rates. The umbrella review analyzed global studies and found a 23% decrease in depression risk and a 26% decrease in anxiety risk associated with physical activities like gardening and walking.

Researchers unveiled a groundbreaking discovery that DNA damage and brain inflammation are vital processes for forming long-term memories, particularly within the brain's hippocampus. Contrary to previous beliefs associating inflammation with neurological diseases, this study highlights inflammation's critical role in memory formation through the activation of the Toll-Like Receptor 9 (TLR9) pathway following DNA damage in hippocampal neurons.
A new study utilizing UK Biobank data has unveiled the genetic roots of left-handedness, pinpointing rare variants in the beta-tubulin gene TUBB4B significantly associated with this trait. These findings not only shed light on the complex interplay between genetics and brain asymmetry but also link left-handedness with neurodevelopmental disorders through shared genetic pathways.
