Researchers have identified a neural link between depression and sleep problems. The study reports brain regions associated with short term memory, self and negative emotions are strongly connected in those with depression, and this may lead to bad sleep quality.
Researchers report high density of neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex play a significant role in resilient dyslexia.
Researchers report ADHD and conduct disorder exhibit similar, overlapping changes in the brain.
Researchers report THC oil may be beneficial in providing pain relief for those suffering radicular pain, such as sciatica. The study reports marijuana reduces connections between areas of the brain that process sensory signals and emotions.
A new neuroimaging study reveals the brains of teenage girls who self harm show similar features to adults with borderline personality disorder.
Increased kynurenic acid production has been implicated in the pathology of schizophrenia. The findings provide a new target for cell-specific treatments that help reduce the production of kynurenic acid and reduce symptoms of schizophrenia.
Applying repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to the prefrontal cortex helps improve performance in working memory tasks for both young and older subjects. The findings could provide a potential new treatment option for those suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other memory-related problems.
Neuroimaging reveals lower activation in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and angular gyrus in teenage girls with conduct disorder. Findings suggest that a reduction in prefrontal brain regions and functional connectivity during effortful emotional regulations contribute to behaviors associated with antisocial behavior in teenage girls.
