Researchers say machine learning is up to 85% accurate at predicting the severity of small vessel disease, a condition associated with stroke and dementia.
DMT alters electrical activity in the brain. The compound significantly decreases alpha wave activity, the dominant rhythm associated with wakefulness, and increases theta waves, associated with dreaming. Overall brain activity becomes more chaotic and less predictable. The findings advance the understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of immersive states of consciousness.

Researchers have developed a blood test that looks at genetic markers to detect which babies who were deprived of oxygen at birth are at risk of developing neurodevelopment problems.
Findings could provide a new avenue for treating multiple sclerosis, researcher report.
Researchers use transcranial alternating current stimulation to help improve short term working memory.
Two new studies consider the potential of using psychedelics to help treat depression. Imperial College London researchers report psilocybin, the active compound in magic mushrooms, can help to relieve symptoms of depression without the dulling of emotions associated with SSRIs. The researchers note the psychedelic experience could help to maintain long term mental health for those with treatment resistant depression.
