Both the default mode network and salience network in superagers had stronger connectivity than typical older adults and similar connectivity as younger adults. Superagers performed similarly to young adults and better than typical older adults in recognition and episodic memory tasks.
Prolonged anesthesia significantly alters the synaptic architecture of the brain, regardless of age.
Fenofibrate, a drug developed to control cholesterol, alleviated brain and behavioral abnormalities in mouse models of schizophrenia.
A new study identifies differences in brain connectivity in people with ASD compared to their typically developing peers.
According to a new Journal of Neuroscience report, an underdeveloped brain network underlying inhibition after the age of 30 is associated with increased self reporting of psychological problems such as anxiety and depression.
The accumulation of amyloid-beta and tau proteins disrupts the connections between brain regions associated with memory years before symptoms of Alzheimer's disease appear.
People who experienced sexual abuse or suffer from PTSD have reduced connectivity in the ventral and dorsal attention network (VAN-DAN network) compared to those with no history of abuse or PTSD.
Researchers have identified functional connectivity problems in brain regions associated with visual processing and attention in Parkinson's patients who experience visual hallucinations.
According to researchers, even before a preterm infant is born, they may have alterations in the brain's neural networks that could contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders.
