A neuroimaging study reveals response learners show a decrease in hippocampal gray matter after playing action based video games for 90 hours.
Using neuroimaging technology, researchers are able to predict a person's brain age. This could also help to spot who is at risk of poor health and early death.
A new study challenges the Myonuclear Domain Hypothesis of muscle memory. Researchers report nuclei gained during training persist even when muscle cells start to shrink as a result of disuse.
Researchers discover the role the p62 protein plays in the accumulation of amyloid beta in the brain.
While much research has shown that exercise can be good for our brains, the link between how physical activity benefits the brain is not clearly understood. In a new study, researchers suggest the link between brain health and exercise could be a product of our evolutionary history and our hunter-gatherer past.
Researchers have developed a simplified approach for delivering and monitoring gene therapy for brain disorders.
According to a new study, two genetic variants associated with Alzheimer's disease have been more specifically linked to brain atrophy that is characteristic of the disease.
The common statin drug Simvastatin reduces brain atrophy and slows the progression of secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS). The effects appear to be independent of the drug's cholesterol-lowering effects.
According to researchers, older adults who exercised for most of their lives showed signs of slowed down aging. The study reports those who actively cycled into older age had lower cholesterol levels and better immune systems than those who did not partake in regular exercise.
