Neuroscience News Home

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.

Researchers developed 'Anthrobots,' microscopic biological robots made from human tracheal cells, demonstrating potential in healing and regenerative medicine. These self-assembling multicellular robots, ranging from hair-width to pencil-point size, show remarkable healing effects, particularly in neuron growth across damaged areas in lab conditions.

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.
A collaborative team is developing a neural fiber to combat Alzheimer’s disease. This high-priority NIH-funded project aims to create a minimally invasive fiber, capable of electrical stimulation and drug delivery, to study and potentially reverse memory loss.

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.
A new study reveals a significant link between individuals' musical tastes and their moral values. Employing machine learning to analyze lyrics and audio features from participants' favorite songs, the study found that music preferences reflect specific moral dimensions.

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

A new study reveals distinct differences in brain activity between traumatic memories in PTSD patients and regular sad autobiographical memories. This research, the first of its kind to examine real-life personal memories, found that traumatic memories do not activate typical memory-related brain regions like the hippocampus, suggesting they're not processed as regular memories.

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.
