Blood stem cells use an unexpected method to remove misfolded proteins, and the pathway's activity declines with age. However, boosting the aggrephagy pathway could help prevent age-related diseases.
Children and adolescents who report having a strong relationship with their parents have better long-term health outcomes, a new study reports.
Using ECG data, a new machine learning algorithm was able to predict death within 5 years of a patient being admitted to hospital with 87% accuracy. The AI was able to sort patients into 5 categories ranging from low to high risk of death.
Both adults and young children rely on orthographic information, or letter image and word length, over phonological information when reading.
Brain decline begins during our 30s and 40s, and not at age 25 as previously believed, researchers say.
Science research articles covering neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.
Exercise helps to improve the severity of the movement-related symptoms and the overall well-being of those suffering from Parkinson's disease.
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.
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.
Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.
People who enjoy experiencing JOMO, the "joy of missing out", tend to have higher levels of social anxiety, a new study reports.
Emotional stability was the most common trait linked to people's life satisfaction, social connections, and career.
Young children encode social cues according to context, then process the social stimuli to form a representation of the current social situation. Once the action values are compared, children then chose to perform the optimal action that has the highest value.
Study identifies an intestinal immune cell that impacts the gut microbiome, affecting brain functions linked to depression and stress.
A new study identified sex-specific differences in neurodevelopment and health-related disorders in children who were exposed to alcohol while in the womb. Prenatal alcohol exposure increased female children's risk of developing depression and anxiety, while in males, prenatal alcohol exposure increased the risk of ADHD, conduct disorders, and oppositional defiance disorder.
