Habitual tea drinking was associated with greater functional connectivity in the default mode network. Findings suggest tea drinking has a positive contribution to brain structure and a protective effect on age-related decline in brain organization.
Neuroimaging can be used to assess a person's risk of suicidal behavior. Those with mood disorders, a history of suicidal thoughts, and those with a history of suicide attempts have less connectivity in the cognitive control network. They also have reduced connectivity between the cognitive control network and the default mode network.
Older people who drink tea at least four times a week have better brain efficiency than those who don't, a new neuroimaging study reveals. Drinking tea is associated with better cognitive function in older people. Researchers report the study provides evidence that tea consumption has protective effects against age-related decline in brain organization.
Both the default mode network and salience network in superagers had stronger connectivity than typical older adults and similar connectivity as younger adults. Superagers performed similarly to young adults and better than typical older adults in recognition and episodic memory tasks.
Children with type 1 diabetes have slower growth of total cortical and subcortical gray and white matter compared to their peers without diabetes.
Neurofeedback training helps reinforce brain patterns associated with motor function while participants complete imaginary motor tasks. The findings may help in the rehabilitation for stroke and other disorders that compromise motor function.
A new MRI study reveals those who get to sleep and wake up late have lower resting brain connectivity in regions associated with the maintenance of consciousness. Researchers report the reduced brain connectivity is linked to poorer attention, slower reactions and increased daytime sleepiness.
A new meta analysis study identifies dysfunction of neurocognitive networks across multiple psychiatric disorders.
