A clinical trial of an Alzheimer’s disease treatment developed found that the nutrient cocktail can improve memory in patients with early Alzheimer’s. The mixture appears to increase the number of dendritic spines and therefore some synapses.
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.
Researchers report piglets of mothers who were fed a choline rich diet had increased white and gray matter in the brain.
A new study reports new nerve cell connections on sensory cells could contribute to age related hearing loss.
Findings show sex-specific baizes in gene expression changes and demonstrate cellular control mechanisms based on microRNA change. The study sheds new light on genetic and neurological changes associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Columbia researchers have identified a way in which to determine if a patient with MCI may respond to cholinesterase inhibitors.
Acetylcholine regulates glutamate signaling in the habenula, reinforcing nicotine addiction, researchers report.
Dopamine D2 receptor overexpression in cholinergic interneurons of the nucleus accumbens may explain why some are more prone to cocaine addiction than others.
A new study reports nicotine reduces the sleep inducing effects of alcohol.
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.
