Inhibition of the OR5B21 olfactory receptor gene significantly decreased the metastasis of breast cancer cells to the brain, lungs, and bones, researchers report.
Study reveals there are no net benefits of omega-3 supplementation for preventing depression or boosting mood.
Post-mortem studies of brain tissue from ALS patients reveal an abnormal form of tau is present in novel brain areas, and the tau interacts with DRP1. The tau appears to cause the brain cell's mitochondria to fragment and increase oxidative stress. Reducing tau reversed the effect, decreasing oxidative stress and mitochondrial fragmentation.
The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex plays a critical role in mapping out personal actions and outcomes as well as responding to the actions of others.
Irisin, a hormone secreted by muscles during exercise, improved cognitive function and lowered levels of inflammation in mouse models. The findings have implications for the development of treatments for Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Mouse and human studies reveal Interleukin-3 may modify immune responses in the brain that cause cell death and lead to Alzheimer's disease.
The structure of SuperAgers' brains and the connectivity of their neural networks more closely resembles the brains of younger adults, a neuroimaging study reveals.
Animal studies and analysis of human data reveal a link between vitamin D deficiency and an increased risk of both opioid addiction and sun-seeking behaviors.
Sevoflurane, an anesthetic, causes tau to leave neurons and enter microglia. This stimulates the production of interleukin-6, leading to inflammation and cognitive impairment.
Combining αGITR antibodies with ICBs resulted in stronger survival benefits in mouse models of human glioblastoma brain cancer.
A number of videos have surfaced on popular channels showing people experiencing some adverse effects following the coronavirus vaccine. Researchers say some of the cases could be related to functional neurological disorder, a common neuropsychological condition.
