Neuroscience News is an independent open access science magazine. Since 2001, we have featured neuroscience research news from labs, universities, hospitals and news departments around the world. Topics include brain research, AI, psychology, neuroscience, mental health and neurotech.

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

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

A new study found that abnormally high levels of HDL-C (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), often referred to as 'good cholesterol', may increase the risk of dementia in older adults. This large-scale study, part of the ASPREE project, observed over 18,668 participants, noting that those with very high HDL-C levels had a 27% higher risk of dementia.
A new study on former NFL athletes reveals prolonged high levels of the repair protein TSPO, indicating long-term brain inflammation post-injury. This protein, usually elevated after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as part of the immune response, was found at high levels years after athletes ended their sports careers.

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 utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze brain MRI scans have identified significant differences in white matter tracts of adolescents with ADHD. The study, involving over 1,700 participants from the multi-institutional Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study, used diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and a deep-learning AI model to detect these variations.

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

While optimism is often celebrated, a new study reveals that excessive optimism can lead to poor decision-making, particularly in financial matters. The research shows that individuals with high cognitive ability tend to be more realistic and pessimistic in their future expectations, while those with lower cognitive ability lean towards excessive optimism.
A new study reveals an increase in cannabis use among older Americans, with 12% reporting THC-containing substance consumption in the past year, a rise from pre-pandemic levels. The study highlights a connection between high-risk alcohol consumption and increased cannabis use in this age group.
A new study reveals a significant association between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and symptoms of muscle dysmorphia in adolescents and young adults. The research highlights how ACEs, such as domestic violence and emotional abuse, can lead to the pathological pursuit of muscularity as a coping mechanism.

A new study reveals insights into how general anesthesia affects consciousness and sensory perception. Using animal models, researchers found that while propofol anesthesia allows sensory information to reach the brain, it disrupts the spread of signals across the cortex.
Researchers discovered that the way we perceive and describe colors is influenced by the languages we speak. In a study with the Tsimane’ society from the Bolivian Amazon, bilingual individuals who learned Spanish as a second language began distinguishing colors differently than monolingual Tsimane’ speakers.
Researchers analyzed over 1 million genomes, revealing insights into cannabis use disorder and its ties to psychiatric issues, other substance abuses, and lung cancer risks. The study, part of the Million Veteran Program, identified genetic variants linked to cannabis use disorder and its associated health and behavioral problems.
