Researchers report histamines can help improve memory of objects up-to 25 days longer than normal in mice, as well as improving people's long term memory test scores. The study suggests taking histamines may help alleviate symptoms of memory disorders such as Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Researchers discover the protein nestin produced in astrocytes plays a role in inhibiting neural differentiation. The study reports nestin does not control adult neurogenesis by acting within neural stem cells, but by regulating Notch signals neural stem cells receive from astrocytes.
Researchers investigate why two people who experience the same event often have different memories of what occurred.
A new study reports sleeps help improve learning performance in predictable processes.
Researchers report a new 'anti-radiation' medication can help protect astronauts' brains from the cosmic radiation of deep space.
A new study reports researchers have successfully generated an artificial memory by injecting a sea snail with the RNA from another. Researchers say this approach could lead to new treatments to restore memory and alter traumatic memories in humans.
A new study sheds light on why some people with Parkinson's disease binge eat. Researchers report working memory impairment and alterations in reward sensitivity could be behind why binge eating can be problematic in those with Parkinson's.
Researcher report long-lasting proteins in the brain could be a crucial part of the molecular machinery that helps govern long term memory and learning.
Researchers report alpha 7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors enhance communication between the hippocampus and frontal cortex, where as a4b7 nicotinic receptors decrease the communication. The findings may have implications for the way stimulation of acetylcholine can be used to treat dementia.
