Patients who experienced cognitive impairments, or brain fog, following COVID-19 infection had abnormalities in their cerebrospinal fluid. Researchers say the overstimulation of the immune system as a result of COVID may be the cause of cognitive deficits.
Findings shed light on the mechanisms underlying brain damage in microgravity.
Researchers report Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders can be confirmed in living patients by specific biomarkers in cerebrospinal fluid.
Findings support the current theory that sleep may be involved in the regulation of metabolic waste clearance and highlights the link between sleep and fluid flow in the human brain.
Computational model provides caregivers and doctors a better understanding of the potential outcomes for a young child who suffers from a head injury as a result of abuse.
Ceramide exposure impairs the ability for neurons to make energy by directly damaging mitochondria. Additionally, ceramides force neurons to rapidly uptake glucose in order to provide cellular energy.
Damaged olfactory neurons as a result of air pollution may contribute to altered cerebrospinal fluid flow and turnover, acting as a potential mechanism for the development of neurodegenerative diseases.
