ARGONet, a new approach that combines multiple data streams with artificial intelligence, produces the most accurate estimates of flu activity, up to a week ahead of traditional healthcare based reports.
Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital have developed a therapeutic cocktail of molecules that restored fine motor skills in mice with spinal cord injuries. When applied to mice who had experienced stroke symptoms, researchers observed increased axon sprouting in subcortical areas.
Researchers have successfully restored the ability to walk in mice paralyzed as a result of spinal cord injuries with the help of a small molecular compound.
A study in Nature Neuroscience reveals mutations that occur after conception could play an important role in autism. The study reports post-zygotic mutations occur disproportionately in genes expressed in the amygdala in those on the autism spectrum.
Researchers have derived purkinje cells from patients with TSC, a genetic syndrome that includes some ASD-like symptoms. The cells, researchers say, have several characteristics that could help explain how ASD develops at the molecular level.
RAGE-Control, a video game system that utilizes biofeedback to regulate heart rate, reduces stress, oppositional behavior, and aggression by training children to stay calm during stressful and frustrating situations.
Inadequate sleep can harm brain organization in early adolescence, researchers report. The disorganization can have an impact on cognitive processes, including attention, memory, emotional regulation, and controlling behaviors.
Children who embark on regular exercise have marked differences in brain structure, flexibility, organization, and have more robust neural networks than those who exercise less frequently.
Study revels M1 ganglion cell photoreceptors can tune into different ranges of light intensity.
A study of patients with polymicrogyria sheds new light on the role the ATP1A3 gene plays in early brain development.
