Researchers have developed several new lipid based diets that appear to slow the progression of Alzheimer's in mouse models of the disease.
Researchers have identified a unique memory suppressor gene that may be useful for developing new treatments for Alzheimer's disease.
A new neuroimaging study links neurobiological changes to the cognitive impairments associated with some common, over the counter medications.
Researchers have mapped out a circuit of neurons responsible for motor impairment in Parkinson's disease patients.
According to researchers, traumatic memories are strengthened by an increased release of acetylcholine in the amygdala. Decreasing acetylcholine signaling during traumatic experience helped wipe out memory.
A new study opens the door for new treatments to help treat obesity and other eating disorders.
Even prior to pregnancy, a mother's exposure to second hand smoke can have implications for the brain development of her offspring, including damage to areas of the brain associated with emotion, memory and learning.
Researchers have discovered a new signaling pathway that connects NMDAR and alpha 7 acetylcholine nicotinic receptors, both implicated in memory and learning. Findings could help develop new treatments for schizophrenia.
In lower mammals, the iris may sense light and cause the pupils to constrict without involving the brain, a new study reports.
