Computational model sheds light on the impact chronic, low-grade inflammation has on the mesolimbic dopamine system and motivational impairments.
A new study reports teens faced with chronic family stress have higher blood pressure and worse immune response to bacterial infections. However, those who used cognitive reappraisal had lower blood pressure, despite the pressures they faced.
Researchers have discovered how the nature of T cells help protect the brain from viruses. The findings shed light on the role the immune system plays in a number of neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers report repeated social defeat stress activates microglia in the medial prefrontal cortex, triggering inflammation related cytokines. This leads to impaired neural responses in the mPFC, resulting in depressive behavior.
A new study reports alcohol may impede the clearance of amyloid beta, a protein associated with Alzheimer's disease, in the brain.
A new study reveals the LRRK2 genetic mutation may alter cells circulating outside of the brain. Researchers report the mutation may alter how immune cells react to common illnesses, causing an inflammatory reaction in the brain that can lead to the development of Parkinson's disease.
Chemotherapy is often blamed for memory loss and cognitive problems in cancer survivors. However, new research published in Neuroscience challenges this belief. Researchers report cognitive impairments, often referred to as Chemo Fog, may actually start as the tumor grows and develops.
Researchers from Yale University have discovered tow cytokines that could help explain how some people develop PPMS. They report a simple genetic test could be used to identify those most at risk of developing progressive multiple sclerosis.
