A new study reveals noradrenaline plays a vital role in early stages of perception. Researchers report later processing of visual information occurs in the cerebral cortex and is affected by noradrenaline to determine if an image will enter our stream of consciousness.
Scientist reveal a drug regiment consisting of anti-inflammatories and anti-stress medications given before and after surgery could reduce cancer recurrence.
EGCG and tannic acid, polyphenols found in green tea and red wine, may help to effectively block the formation of toxic amyloid structures, researchers report. The findings may pave the way to developing new treatments for amyloid-related neurodegenerative disorders and genetic metabolic disorders.
A new study reports insulin resistance is linked to accelerated cognitive decline.
A new EEG and fMRI study of epilepsy patients may reveal clues about the origins of consciousness. Researchers report activity in the frontal lobe changes 2 seconds before patients report an alteration in perception, and activity in the medial temporal lobe changes one second prior to them reporting.
Neurons in the medial prefrontal cortex respond more to loss than to gain. Avoidance of risk-taking is affected by an area of the hippocampus that is associated with memory and anxiety. The findings suggest a close relationship between memory processing and decision making when risk is present, especially in stressful situations. The fresh insights might help guide new psychiatric therapies for disorders marked by excessive avoidance, such as anxiety, and depression, and also mania and addiction, where excessive risk-taking is a common feature.
