A new study reveals our genes play a key role in how our bodies respond to exercise. Researchers also identified specific genes that influence the outcome of different types of physical activity.
Mouse study identifies specific neurons and a signaling pathway to regions of the hindbrain that mediate sexual reproductive activity and physical activity that appear to influence activity behaviors during ovulation. The findings may provide valuable insights into how estrogen loss during menopause disrupts this activity.
Researchers have identified causal genetic links to three blood metabolite levels that increase migraine risks.
Bumetanide, an FDA-approved potent diuretic used to treat fluid retention caused by heart, kidney, and liver disease may lower the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease for those with a genetic predisposition.
The answer to what makes the human brain unique may lie in junk DNA.
A reconstituted circadian clock of cyanobacteria can run for consistent days, allowing researchers to study the interactions of the clock proteins in real-time and observe how the clock exerts control over gene expression.
People with genetic risks for Alzheimer's disease may exhibit changes in brain structure and reduced performance in cognitive tests long before symptoms of the neurodegenerative disease become obvious.
