Researchers identified an abnormal link between the autonomic and central nervous system via communication between the heart and parts of the prefrontal cortex in women with generalized anxiety disorder.
LATE, a form of dementia that appears in the oldest-old is often mistaken for Alzheimer's disease, but the brain pathology is very different. The protein TDP-43 appears to play a significant role in the development of LATE. The neurodegenerative disease may progress more gradually than Alzheimer's, but when combined with Alzheimer's disease (a common combination), appears to cause a more rapid decline than either would alone.
Researchers provide possible new insights into psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.
A new study uncovers dynamic changes in the epigenome which occur during brain development.
Researchers have found significant changes in the brain make up of fetuses and newborn rats exposed to allergens during pregnancy.
Study identifies a different set of individual neurons in the medial frontal cortex that is responsible for memory-based decision making. The findings have implications for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, and other disorders associated with problems in cognitive flexibility.
A new study redefines the role of the Broca's area.
Some elderly people harbor extensive Alzheimer's pathology in their brain and have no evidence of the cognitive decline associated with the disease, researchers report.
Study reveals a surprising level of similarity in brain structure and development between humans and other primates.
A new technique using phosphorus boosts the visibility of iron in the brain.
