The use of naproxen, an NSAID anti-inflammatory, increases the frequency of adverse health effects and does not reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reports unexpected changes in music activates the nucleus accumbens, providing reward and helping us to learn about the music as we listen.
Researchers discover activity in brain regions involved in reward response from dopamine was higher in subjects injected with the hormone ghrelin, but only when responding to images associated with food smells. The study reports ghrelin controls the extent to which the brain associates reward with food odors.

Researchers have developed a new machine learning algorithm that can make accurate predictions about cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer's. The algorithm, researchers say, may help doctors stream people onto a preventative path and offer treatment sooner.
A new study reports teenagers have a more difficult time discerning the emotional vocal tones of their peers. The results, researchers suggest, show teens have not reached a level of maturity in either ability to identify or express vocal emotions.
A new study sheds light on the roles both genetics and neuroanatomy play in obesity. Researchers report those with higher BMI had reduced cognitive flexibility, reduced ability to delay gratification and worse verbal memory. Additionally, those with increased BMI have increased amygdala and left prefrontal cortex volume.
A new study reports a short burst of exercise can dramatically improve long term retention of new motor skills.
Researchers have developed a new neuroimaging method to track neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease. The method helped uncover a new pathway for how degeneration spreads from one brain region to another.
Researchers have identified gene mutations responsible for childhood onset schizophrenia.
