Almost 1 in 5 people now use opioids to treat migraines. Researchers say a growing number of patients are using opioids to replace medications approved and specially designed to treat migraines, despite knowing the risks of opioid use.
Findings provide a new insight into how the brain regulates food and water intake.
Using non-invasive brain stimulation, researchers shed light on the neurobiology underlying implicit biases.
Researchers have identified a group of neurons that respond to sodium deficiency and drive the need to consume salt.
A new study reveals a connection between light sensitive nerve cells in the eyes and areas of the brain that regulate mood. The findings may help explain how light can induce some of the negative emotions that often accompany migraines.
A new study could help explain how the hungry brain hinders dieting.
Study reveals a link between obesity and chronic diarrhea, independent of lifestyle, diet, and other medical conditions. Those who are obese are 60% more likely to experience bouts of chronic diarrhea. A possible explanation could be the link between obesity and low-grade inflammation, which may trigger diarrhea more frequently.
Gene usage in the brains of those who suffered severe COVID-19 infections was similar to that observed in the aging brain. Researchers say COVID-19 is associated with molecular signatures of brain aging.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that helps rouse the brains of mice suffering from simulated sleep apnea. The findings could help develop new treatments for people with obstructive sleep apnea and provide new insights into SIDS.
Examining postmortem brains of ASD patients, researchers discover an accumulation of immune cells surrounding blood vessels in the brain. They also found blebs accumulating around blood vessels that contained astrocyte debris. The findings suggest autism may be an autoimmune disorder.
Study reveals the precise hypothalamic neurons associated with mating motivation in mice. The findings could lead to new treatments for psychiatric disorders which do not impact libido.
