A new study from researchers at Boston University reports an increase in later life emotional and behavioral problems in people who played youth tackle football before the age of 12.
Researchers present a new model for the biology of Alzheimer's disease in a Nature Neuroscience study. They note the findings could help lead to a new approach to treating the neurodegenerative disease.
A new study of football players who were diagnosed with CTE reveals those who started playing tackle football before the age of 12 had earlier onset of emotional and cognitive problems.
Researchers have identified a possible neurological biomarker for long term learning. The brain wave biomarker could allow educators to attempt new educational techniques to improve long term learning by measuring the results via EEG testing.
Studying the exomes of 6,000 Alzheimer's patients and 5,000 without the disease, researchers have identified new rare variations in genes that may contribute to dementia.
