Choline, an essential nutrient, can help prevent fetal brain development problems in infants whose mothers experience common infections, such as influenza, during pregnancy.
Researchers report when mice bred to display Alzheimer's like symptoms were given diets high in choline, their offspring showed improvements in spatial memory compared to those exposed to normal levels of choline in the womb.
Researchers have developed a new neuroimaging method to track neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease. The method helped uncover a new pathway for how degeneration spreads from one brain region to another.
A new study reveals the prefrontal cortex may play a role in coordinating the level of consciousness through the cholinergic system.
Researchers have mapped the relationship of two types of neurons implicated in psychiatric and movement disorder. The findings could lead to new treatments for a range of disorders from depression to Parkinson's disease.
Researchers report piglets of mothers who were fed a choline rich diet had increased white and gray matter in the brain.
A new study reveals a psychostimulant prescribed for ADHD increases glutamate in the brains of healthy people, resulting in more positive emotions.
Age related neurodegeneration may be delayed by preventing oxidative damage in a few neuron types, researchers report.
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.
A new study provides further evidence that increasing choline consumption during pregnancy has cognitive benefits for children.
