Penn Medicine research presented today at the 2012 Alzheimer's Association International Conference shows that an anti-tau treatment called epithilone D (EpoD) was effective in preventing and intervening the progress of Alzheimer's disease in animal models, improving neuron function and cognition, as well as decreasing tau pathology.
Researchers discover four spectral features in the brain signals of schizophrenia patients that changed with age compared to healthy control subjects, suggesting that schizophrenia affects the way in which brain activity evolves with age.
Preterm infants with low-grade periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage (PIVH) brain bleeding could have similar long term neurodevelopmental outcomes as babies with no bleeding, researchers suggest.
Researchers have created a computer model based on the dynamics of brain cells and its neural connections. They hope the model will help them understand why certain portions of the brain work together when a person daydreams.
