Prucalopride, a medication commonly prescribed to treat constipation, may help improve memory and cognition. People prescribed the drug for 6 days performed better in memory tests and had increased activity in brain areas associated with cognition.
Structural and functional alterations in the cognitive control network contribute to individual variability in memory performance during aging.
Neuroimaging reveals lower activation in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and angular gyrus in teenage girls with conduct disorder. Findings suggest that a reduction in prefrontal brain regions and functional connectivity during effortful emotional regulations contribute to behaviors associated with antisocial behavior in teenage girls.
People with Huntington's disease who participated in intellectually stimulating activities had less brain atrophy than those with the disease who did not take up such activities.
Researchers have identified a neural link between depression and sleep problems. The study reports brain regions associated with short term memory, self and negative emotions are strongly connected in those with depression, and this may lead to bad sleep quality.
Using the movie Memento, researchers discover how the brain creates memories to piece together complex story lines.
According to a new study, using tDCS to stimulate the left angular gyrus can enhance the comprehension of simple, two word phrases.
