Huperzine A, a compound that comes from a club moss, has been shown to increase resistance to induced seizures in mouse models of genetic epilepsy, a new study reports.
A new study reports young children with autism don't avoid eye contact on purposes, but do miss the significance of the social information in others' eyes.
Researchers identify a new mechanism that contributes to learning an association between a warning noise and a fearful event.
Researchers have implicated an enzyme that appears to make both Tau and alpha synculein more toxic in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Inhibiting this enzyme has already proved helpful in treating animal models of Alzheimer's disease. The researchers report they are moving on to testing drugs that inhibit AEP in animal models of Parkinson's disease.
According to a new Nature paper, variation in how children seek social information is under genetic control. Such behaviors are decreases in children with autism, adding further evidence for the link between behavioral presentation in ASD and underlying genetics causes.
