Greater hippocampal volume is not always a reliable predictor of learning and memory ability in older adults. Faster learning was only found in older adults who had both greater hippocampal volume and more uniform white matter connections to other parts of the brain.
A new study reveals older adults with greater symptoms of depression have a smaller brain volume and a 55% greater chance of vascular lesions in the brain than those who do not have depression.
Researchers discover smaller hippocampal gray matter volume in people who expressed higher or lower than average levels of cortisol in response to stress.
Larger hippocampal volume in combination with how safe teens feel in their community environments contribute to how depressed they feel, a new study reports.
Hippocampal shrinkage may could signify people with memory problems could develop Lewy body dementia rather than Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports.
A new study suggests regular physical activity may lead to greater hippocampal volume and could stave off dementia, especially in older people.
A new study reports the genetic risk score may be able to detect those at higher risk for developing Alzheimer's disease, even during early adulthood.
Researchers report patients with greater hippocampal volume responded better to treatments for PTSD.
A new study reports on a significant correlation between infrequent daily computer use and smaller hippocampal volume, an indicator of an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reports people with recurrent depression have significantly smaller hippocampi than healthy individuals.
