Sleep loss leads to negativity bias, negative mood and impaired emotional regulation.
Cholinesterase inhibitors such as galantamine, donepezil, and rivastigmine, appear to generate persistent cognitive benefits, and increased longevity for up to five years in Alzheimer's patients.
Researchers from Karolinska Institute have made an important discovery that could impact neuroscience research. Researchers found TIDA neurons have different wiring in rats and mice. This is due to mice lacking gap junctions. Findings have inspired scientists to create a new model for studying the role of gap junctions in the brain.
Children show improved ability in their math skills when they are trained to practice visual working memory and reasoning tasks.
Neural mapping of the enteric nervous system reveals how fetal neurons form during development. The process of neural development in the ENT follows different principal to the development of neurons in the brain.
Cognitive function can be quantified and linked to how well a child performs in a game of soccer, researchers report.
A new study reports combining antipsychotic medications could help to prevent relapse and hospitalization for those with schizophrenia. Combining aripiprazole and clozapine resulted in a 23% lower risk of re-hospitalization than with clozapine alone, researchers report.
Researchers improve the recovery of function in mice following spinal cord injury.
A new neuroimaging study reveals brain patterns that differentiate between men and women are less pronounced in non-heterosexual people. The differences occurred primarily in sensory processing areas of the brain, in particular areas associated with visual processing. Researchers say the brain differences could be linked to a genetic predisposition for same-sex sexual behaviors. The study reveals a neurobiological basis for same-sex attractions.
