Males who had overprotective fathers have a 12% higher risk of dying before the age of 80. Women with overprotective fathers are 22% more likely to die before they reach 80 years of age. For males raised by single parents, their risk of death before the age of 80 was 179% higher than those raised by two parents.
A new study uncovers a link between astrocytes derived from patients with schizophrenia and the formation of narrower blood vessels in the brain. Findings suggest the astrocytes from those with schizophrenia promote less vascularization.
Study reveals the role played by neuropathic pain in dendritic cells in the meninges via an increase in the metabolic kynurenine pathway. When the kynurenine pathway initiated by IDO1 was blocked, neuropathic pain was nullified.
SARS_CoV_2, the virus responsible for COVID-19 infects and replicates in astrocytes, reducing neural viability.
Researchers found a significant link between olfaction and visual sensory processing, reporting specific smells influence the identification of facial emotions, and facial expressions influence the emotional response to smell.
A new study reveals how the COVID-19 pandemic changed the perception of time for many people. Researchers say people felt time passed more slowly during COVID lockdowns.

A new small-scale study reveals transcranial direct current stimulation improved gait and increased the benefits of aerobic exercise in Parkinson's patients.
Melatonin produced in the lungs acts as a barrier defense against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, by blocking the expression of genes that encode proteins in cells acting as viral entry points.
Researchers used epigenetic modulators to reduce the damage done by stress to neuroplasticity. Findings reveal acute intervention in epigenetic mechanisms produced antidepressant effects more rapidly than conventional medications.
