Neuroscience Research Articles

This shows a heart and brain balanced on a scale
Oxytocin, a hormone connected with bonding and love, could help to heal damage following a heart attack. Researchers found oxytocin stimulates stem cells from the heart's outer layer and migrates into the middle layer where it develops into muscle cells that generate heart contractions. This could be used to promote the regeneration of heart cells following a heart attack.
This shows mitral and tufted cells in the olfactory corte
In the olfactory system, tufted cells are better at recognizing smells than mitral cells. Tufted cells are one of two parallel neural circuit loops that help the brain process different odor features. The findings shed light on how the brain takes in sensory information that influences behavior and emotion.

Science research articles covering neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.

This shows a brain
Researchers have identified a link between metabolism and dementia-related brain measures. Obesity related to inflammation, kidney stress, or liver stress had the biggest impact on adverse brain health.

Two short cycles of a low-calorie diet that mimics fasting reduced inflammation and delayed cognitive decline in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report the diet is safe for humans and could help reduce signs of Alzheimer's.

Researchers propose a new model for Alzheimer's disease (AD2) that considers the neurodegenerative disease as an autoimmune disease that attacks the brain. Considering Alzheimer's as an autoimmune disorder could spark a new line of therapies to treat the disease.

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

This shows a woman drinking a cocktail
Women in their 20's who frequently binge drink had the highest self-reported prevalence of COVID-19 infection among subgroups within a study of alcohol and drug usage during the pandemic. Researchers say the increased infection risk was due to binge drinkers being less vigilant with their social behaviors as a result of intoxication.

This shows a brain
In mice genetically more susceptible to PTSD following a stressful event, researchers found an increased expression of cortisol receptors on neurons in the CA1 region of the dorsal hippocampus. Those increased receptors enabled an elevated expression of the HCN1 protein and TRIP8b, reducing neural excitability.
