The FMNL2 gene links cerebrovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports. Changes of activity in the FMNL2 caused by cerebrovascular disease prevent the efficient cleaning of toxic proteins in the brain, leading to the development of Alzheimer's disease.
Cognitive abnormalities associated with schizophrenia may be traced to altered activity in the thalamus during adolescence.
Having three or more children was associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline later in life.
Glutamate binds to the subunits of its receptor only in specific patterns. The findings upend previous belief that each subunit binds glutamate independently and points to a new level of complexity in neurotransmission and drug response.
Researchers have developed a new AI algorithm that prevents smart devices such as Alexa or Siri from correctly hearing your words 80% of the time. The algorithm is a step toward providing personal agency in protecting the privacy of their voice in the presence of smart devices.
Researchers have created an implantable bioelectronic device with a high-speed, low-power wireless data link that uses ions within the body.
Floods of calcium that originate from hippocampal neurons can also boost learning, a new study reports.
Researchers report some over-the-counter cough suppressants can help correct heart rhythm problems in patients with QT syndrome.
The brains of patients who died as a result of COVID-19 infection displayed some of the same molecular changes found in the brains of those with Alzheimer's disease, a new small study found. The findings may explain why some long-term COVID sufferers report memory problems.
Researchers identified molecular signatures of gestational inflammation that appear to be biomarkers for autism risk. The immune signatures were identified in both maternal blood samples during pregnancy and in umbilical cord blood from children later diagnosed with ASD.
At six months of age, babies born during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic scored lower on developmental screening tests for social and motor skills than children born before the pandemic.
