Physical activity can help reduce incidents of depressive episodes in those with genetic risk factors for depression.
Both the default mode network and salience network in superagers had stronger connectivity than typical older adults and similar connectivity as younger adults. Superagers performed similarly to young adults and better than typical older adults in recognition and episodic memory tasks.
In healthy older adults, depression and cortical amyloid may be associated with early changes in cognition. The findings provide an additional biomarker for Alzheimer's disease.
Study reveals how a pregnant woman's vaccine-induced immunities are transferred to her offspring via the placenta. The findings have positive implications for the development of new, more effective maternal vaccines.
A new study reports relapse dreams are more common in those with severe clinical histories of addiction. Researchers say the frequency of these relapse dreams decrease as the brain and body adapt to abstinence.
Researchers implicate neurons within the dorsolateral septum in the regulation of fearful behaviors in mice.
Researchers have directly observed excessive synaptic pruning in cells derived from people with schizophrenia.
A new study adds to growing evidence that higher levels of physical activity can help reduce the risk of developing mental illness. Researchers found physical activity can reduce depression risks in those genetically vulnerable to depressive disorders.
Positive psychology exercises have significant benefit in boosting mood for those recovering from substance addiction, a new study reports.
A new study reveals how the physical force exerted by the solid components of brain tumors impacts surrounding tissue, resulting in apoptosis and neurological dysfunction. Researchers reports the drug lithium, commonly prescribed for bipolar disorder, can help reverse some of the damage caused by the solid stress of the tumor.
Researchers report activating microglia may help reduce the imbalance between neuroprotection and neurotoxicity for neurodegenerative diseases.
