Researchers compared the brains of twins where one, or both, died with Alzheimer's disease. They discovered many of the twins not only had similar progressions of the disease before death, but also similar combinations of pathologies.
A new study reports air evacuations may pose a significant added risk for people with TBI as they could potentially cause more damage.
Researchers report a drug used to slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease may help to reverse memory and learning problems in teens who binge drink.
Donepezil, a drug routinely administered to slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease, shows promise in treating damage caused to the brain by adolescent alcohol exposure. The drug reverses neuroinflammation and neuron damage in rats exposed to alcohol during adolescence.
A new biosensor has been developed which could alter doctors when serious brain injury occurs during heart surgery. Researchers hope the device could help doctors to devise new ways to minimize brain damage and start treatment rapidly.
A new study suggests that blood may hold clues to whether post-menopausal women may have an increased risk for brain damage that can lead to memory problems and an increased risk of stroke.
High levels of SNTF in the blood after TBI correlate with brain tissue damage, researchers discover.
Researchers have developed a blood test that looks at genetic markers to detect which babies who were deprived of oxygen at birth are at risk of developing neurodevelopment problems.
When the hippocampus, an area of the brain associated with memory and learning, is damaged, the prefrontal cortex takes over. This demonstration of neuroplasticity could give rise to new treatment options for Alzheimer's disease and other conditions associated with damage to the brain.
A neuroimaging study finds profound brain activity abnormalities in a group of retired NFL players.
