Obese children tend to have a thinner prefrontal cortex and cerebral cortex. The findings could explain why there is a correlation between obesity in children and decreased executive function.
Non-invasive electrostimulation restores working memory in 70-year-olds, allowing for comparable to cognitive abilities to those of 20-year-olds. The technology increases neural synchronization patterns and information flow between frontotemporal regions of the brain. This results in rapid improvements of working memory in older people, which lasted for more than 50 minutes post stimulation. The findings offer new hope to those suffering age-related memory impairments.
A link between liver dysfunction and Alzheimer's disease has been discovered. The findings add to the understanding of the role metabolic dysfunction plays in the neurodegenerative disease.
A new study reports on the role the protein TDP-43 plays in the development of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified silent, seizure like activity in the hippocampus of two patients with Alzheimer's disease. They believe the seizure activity could contribute to the cognitive symptoms associated with the disease.
Tyr-Pro, a dipeptide derived from soybeans, improved both working and long-term memory in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers implicate the locus coeruleus in storing memories of stressful events.
