Lower exposure to UVB rays during pregnancy has been linked to an increased risk of learning disabilities in children. According to the study, lower UVB exposure during the first trimester had a slightly stronger correlation with neurodevelopmental disorders.
A new study reports learning and behavioral difficulties during childhood can lead to social problems during adolescence for those with epilepsy, even when it is well controlled.
According to a new study, the brain's ability to process consonants in a noisy environment could give clues to a child's literacy potential.
A new study reports statins may reverse learning deficits caused by a genetic mutation in Noonan syndrome.
New research has established a possible link between high-fat diets and such childhood brain-based conditions as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and memory-dependent learning disabilities.
Researchers report that low blood and oxygen flow to the developing brain does not, as previously thought, cause an irreversible loss of brain cells, but rather disrupts the cells’ ability to fully mature.
Scientists showed in mice that disabling a gene linked to a common pediatric tumor disorder, neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), made stem cells from one part of the brain proliferate rapidly. But the same genetic deficit had no effect on stem cells from another brain region.
