Adolescent binge drinking has vast functional implications on the developing brain, researchers report. Binge drinking decreases function in areas responsible for sensory, motor, memory, and cognitive processes.
Researchers reveal how brain structure and chemistry give rise to specific aspects of fluid intelligence.
UCLA researchers report erlotinib, an FDA approved drug, reduces glucose uptake in glioblastoma, effectively cutting off nutrients and energy supply to the tumor.
Researchers have developed a new algorithm that integrates Alzheimer's indicators from MRI measurements to predict patients with the neurodegenerative disease.
Axon regeneration and dramatic improvements in functional recovery occurred when lactate was applied to damaged neural tissue. Treatment with lactate also significantly improved locomotion and restored some walking capability in mouse models of SCI.
A person's ability to self-reflect is associated with cognition and glucose metabolism later in life, a new study finds. Those who engage in more self-reflection had improved cognition, better overall brain health, and increased glucose metabolism later in life.
In early Alzheimer's, glycation damages an enzyme that plays a crucial role in immune response and insulin regulation, researchers report.
