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

A new study highlights the efficacy of light therapy in enhancing sleep and reducing psycho-behavioral symptoms in Alzheimer’s patients. This non-pharmacological treatment, targeting the brain's sleep modulator, shows significant promise in mitigating apathetic and depressive behaviors, agitation, and aggression commonly associated with Alzheimer’s cognitive decline.
Scientists have created a groundbreaking spatial cell atlas of the human limb, capturing the intricate process of human limb development. This work, part of the Human Cell Atlas initiative, marks a significant advancement in understanding the rapid and complex formation of human limbs.

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

Researchers made a significant advance in understanding Alzheimer's disease (AD) by pinpointing how specific brain cells contribute to different stages of the disease. Employing single nucleus RNA sequencing, they analyzed genetic risks in microglia and astrocytes, revealing distinct roles these cells play in AD progression.

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 advanced brain imaging and machine learning to uncover altered functional brain connectivity in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), acknowledging the diversity within the disorder. The research distinguishes between shared and individual-specific connectivity patterns in ASD, revealing both common and unique brain alterations.
Researchers developed an AI-based method to track neurons in moving and deforming animals, a significant advancement in neuroscience research. This convolutional neural network (CNN) method overcomes the challenge of tracking brain activity in organisms like worms, whose bodies constantly change shape.

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

A new study reveals a connection between negative life events (NLE) in childhood and a higher likelihood of developing depression in young adulthood. This research, involving 321 participants, showed that a thicker orbitofrontal cortex at age 14, followed by rapid thinning during adolescence, is predictive of depressive symptoms later in life.
Consuming fatty foods during stressful times can hinder the body's recovery from stress effects. Researchers found that high-fat meals, like butter croissants, consumed before a stressful event, reduced vascular function and brain oxygenation, and negatively affected mood.

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 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 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.
