Researchers have identified electrical activity in the brain that is specific to the start of migraines. The new study reports spreading depolarization can be seen as a migraine begins, and an electrical current can be used to stop it in its tracks.
Researchers show chronic stress generates long term changes in the brain. The finding could explain why people suffering from chronic stress are prone to developing additional mental health problems.
Researchers identify the white matter scaffold of the brain, a critical communication network which supports brain function.
Telomere lengthening resulted in structural changes in the brain, including cortical thickening. By contrast, telomere shortening is associated with gray matter reduction, specifically in the precuneus.
A new technique using phosphorus boosts the visibility of iron in the brain.
An important new study reveals breast feeding not only helps pass immunity onto infants and reduces the risk of obesity, it can also help preterm babies develop more robust white matter.
A new study reports on changes in the brain's architecture for children raised in poverty. However, parental nurturing can offset some of the negative effects on the brain.
Researchers look at the potentially negative role exposure to some common chemicals can have on brain development and IQ.
