The sense of smell has been restored to mice suffering olfactory problems with the aid of stem cell therapies. The findings provide the basis for transitional research to see whether intranasal stem cell treatments can be beneficial for those who have lost their sense of smell.
Study established four general categories of claims made by companies for their consumer-based wearable brain devices. Researchers suggest better ways manufacturers could communicate both the positive and negative outcomes of using their products in a more ethical way.
Researchers state healthy brain development should be considered a human right, not a privilege for the elite. Youths incarcerated in the U.S jail system are not having their cognitive and emotional development needs met, the study reports.
The XDREAM generative deep neural network utilizes firing rates of neurons in the visual cortex to guide the evolution of a novel, synthetic image. The evolved images activate neurons more than large numbers of natural images.
Two new studies report the time of day is a major modifier of exercise capacity, amplifying the impact exercise has on metabolic pathways and energy homeostasis. Evening exercise, researchers report, has the most productive effect.
The findings support a continuous model of neurogenesis throughout development and adulthood.
An opinion article reports on a potential common cause for both SIDS and SUDEP. The reason sudden death may occur is due to a person's inability to wake when CO2 levels in the blood rise, as a result of dysfunctional serotonin neurons in the midbrain.
Researchers use nanotech to enhance vision in mice, enabling them to see infrared light as well as visible light.
A new paper looks at the controversies surrounding adult neurogenesis.
