Positive psychology exercises have significant benefit in boosting mood for those recovering from substance addiction, a new study reports.
Researchers report testing both the cognitive and olfactory abilities in people could help identify those at risk for developing Alzheimer's disease.
New, advanced EEG technology allows researchers to easily visualize brain activity during sleep.
Sevoflurane, an anesthetic, causes tau to leave neurons and enter microglia. This stimulates the production of interleukin-6, leading to inflammation and cognitive impairment.
Ezogabine, an antiepileptic drug, reduces the excitability of cortical and spinal motor neurons associated with ALS.
A new automated method can identify and track the development of tau deposits in the brain. The method could lead to an earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers implicate neurons within the dorsolateral septum in the regulation of fearful behaviors in mice.
The accumulation of amyloid-beta and tau proteins disrupts the connections between brain regions associated with memory years before symptoms of Alzheimer's disease appear.
