According to researchers, a small alcoholic drink each day may be beneficial for brain health. Using mice, researchers found low levels of alcohol consumption is associated with less brain inflammation and a more effective glymphatic system. This allows CSF to flow more efficiently through the brain and remove waste that can lead to neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study reports the atrophy of brain lesion volume predicts the development of more physical disabilities associated with multiple sclerosis.
Researchers have discovered a new biomarker that can help diagnose Huntington's disease. They note the findings could result in the development of treatments to postpone neuron death in those who carry the Huntington's gene mutation, but who do not currently show symptoms of the disease.
Ceramide exposure impairs the ability for neurons to make energy by directly damaging mitochondria. Additionally, ceramides force neurons to rapidly uptake glucose in order to provide cellular energy.
According to researchers, people who suffer from migraines have higher sodium concentrations in their cerebrospinal fluid.
Beta-2 microglobulin, a blood-borne molecule, blocks neurogenesis and promotes cognitive decline as we age, a new study reports.
HIV can persist in the nervous system, even when the virus is suppressed. Even when the virus is suppressed, neurocognitive problems associated with the infection can persist.
Researchers suggest a number of new tests for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, including a saliva test.
Newborns who suffer a brain hemorrhage at birth could be saved from developing hydrocephalus thanks to a new drug which prevents brain swelling, researchers discover.
