Study reaffirms findings that the gut microbiome may play a significant role in cognitive decline. Researchers found, in mice, a ketogenic diet, hypoxia, and the Bilophila wadsworthia bacteria impaired the hippocampus, leading to signs of cognitive decline.
Glioma brain tumors disrupt neural synchrony between bilateral cortical regions. The findings provide new insight into the association between seizures and tumor progression.
Cognitive challenges trigger a slight oxygen deficit in hippocampal pyramidal neurons. This increases the production of erythropoietin (Epo) and its receptors in the active neurons, stimulating neighboring precursor cells to form new neurons and enhancing connectivity.
