Attending sports events has a positive impact on two measures of well-being; it helps improve life satisfaction and also reduces feelings of loneliness.
People tend to significantly overestimate how many other people hold the same conceptual beliefs of objects, events, people, concepts, and words as they do.
Using a highly versatile form of CRISPR gene editing, researchers successfully restored vision in mice with retinitis pigmentosa.
Humans and computers can interact via multiple modes and channels to respectively gain wisdom and deepen intelligence.
Elite football players are 1.5 times more likely to develop a neurodegenerative disorder such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, or ALS than the general population.
Science research articles covering neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.
DNA designer therapeutics restored levels of a protein critical to motor neuron function, restoring the activity that is impaired as a result of ALS.
Infants who are born preterm do not habituate to repeated pain the same way in which full-term babies or adults do. Researchers believe this is because preterm infants have not yet developed the mechanism that enables people to adapt to moderate pain, which is thought to develop during the third trimester of pregnancy.
New Test Quickly Identifies Patients Whose Postoperative Pain Can Be Effectively Treated by Hypnosis
A newly developed molecular diagnostic test is able to identify people who are most likely to benefit from hypnosis to help manage post-operative pain. This subset of highly hypnotizable people is also more likely to experience higher levels of post-operative pain.
Focused ultrasound treatments help to improve motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease and dyskinesia.
Hidden Danger in Your Groundwater? Widely Used Chemical Linked to 500% Increased Risk of Parkinson’s
Trichloroethylene (TCE), a widely used chemical used in decaffeinated coffee, metal degreasers, and dry cleaning clothes formulas, has been linked to a 500% increased risk of Parkinson's disease.
Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.
Cognitive rumination, or repetitive negative thinking, while in a "low mood" was associated with increased suicidal thoughts in young adults with major depression.
Researchers say Matcha, a traditional Japanese tea, can help boost mood and mental performance. Match tea powder activates dopaminergic neural networks and improves depressive symptoms in mice that previously experienced stress as a result of social isolation.
Engaging in an exercise program reduced suicidal thoughts and actions in patients with mental and physical health problems who previously had suicidal ideations.
Changes in brain activity in the anterior cingulate cortex could be the best predictor of depression severity.
Researchers identified 11 areas of DNA that were linked to depression in women and one in males. They also found depression was associated with metabolic disease in women, providing an important new aspect to consider when treating depressive symptoms.
