Researchers suggest food allergies are linked to elevated social anxiety, fear of social rejection and also humiliation in children.
By capturing a cell by cell view of seizures propagating through a mouse brain, researchers discovered neurons fire in a sequential pattern, regardless of how quickly the seizure occurs. The findings confirm seizures are not a result of neurons going haywire.
Researchers report memories that trigger PTSD and anxiety can be erased without affecting other memories.
