Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the most prevalent cause of chronic liver disease in affluent societies, is intrinsically linked with personality disorders. The research uncovers a tri-fold higher likelihood of personality disorders in NAFLD patients, not correlating with other liver diseases or common mental health issues like anxiety and depression.
A new study reveals intriguing insights into how our brains perceive different quantities of objects. When faced with a small number of items (four or fewer), our brains can quickly and accurately determine the count, a phenomenon known as "subitizing." Conversely, with five or more items, our estimation becomes increasingly imprecise and time-consuming.
A recent study highlights a potential connection between chronic stress, depression, and the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers found that individuals aged 18 to 65 previously diagnosed with either condition showed a heightened risk for Alzheimer’s and mild cognitive impairment.

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

Researchers conduct the most extensive analysis on the genomic, epigenomic, and transcriptomic changes in Alzheimer’s patient brains. By analyzing over 2 million cells from 400 postmortem samples, they've uncovered a detailed picture of the disease's genetic and molecular foundation.

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

This week in neuroscience offers groundbreaking insights: "Game of Thrones" enthusiasts, when lonely, neurologically equate favorite characters to real friends; there's a common brain circuit among different substance disorders; the hippocampus plays a central role in memory variations; and ChatGPT-4 impresses with its ability to craft deeply personal narratives, offering a fresh perspective in therapeutic contexts.

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

Researchers discovered that lonely fans of "Game of Thrones" processed their favorite characters similarly to real friends in their brains. By using fMRI scans while participants considered the traits of show characters and real friends, a blurred boundary was observed between real and fictional friends for lonelier individuals.
