Structural brain asymmetries are greater in those who are most likely to develop dementia, 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.
Researchers have identified a genetic link between a diverse array of health disorders and sleep problems.
Researchers discover a link between neuroinflammation associated with impairment to the blood-brain barrier and intestinal permeability in people with ASD.
New, advanced EEG technology allows researchers to easily visualize brain activity during sleep.
Mice that carry a gene associated with red hair have reduced production of dopamine in the substantia nigra and are more susceptible to toxins that can damage these dopaminergic neurons.
Researchers report a link between children aged between 3 - 7 who don't get enough sleep and the development of emotional, social and attention problems later in childhood.
Researchers report the reward system in the brains of female alcoholics are larger than in women who are not addicted to alcohol. By contrast, this area is smaller in alcoholic men than non-alcoholic men.
Researchers have identified silent, seizure like activity in the hippocampus of two patients with Alzheimer's disease. They believe the seizure activity could contribute to the cognitive symptoms associated with the disease.
A new study sheds light on why some people on the autism spectrum have problems maintaining eye contact. Researchers say that eye avoidance behavior may be triggered by excessive arousal stemming from an over-activation in a specific region of the brain.
Providing patients with acute TBI access to early fMRI and EEG testing will allow medical professionals greater ability to detect levels of consciousness. A new Brain study reports bedside exams may miss critical information about neurophysiological damage.
