Study reveals how key proteins regulate the brain's response to stress in the hippocampus.
The expression of the CREB gene may function as a switch to regulate fear and extinction learning. The findings could provide a new avenue of treatment for PTSD and other mental health disorders.
Researchers report sensitivity to anger cues improve during adolescence, but decreases as we age. However, the ability to detect happy cues remains the same, regardless of age.
Researchers report the accumulation of glycosphingolipids in the substantia nigra appears to be elevated in Parkinson's disease patients. The finding could be used as a biomarker for helping diagnose Parkinson's before symptoms of the disease set in.
A new study builds on previous findings that demonstrate EEG recordings of the rostral anterior cingulate cortex can predict eventual response to treatments for depression.
A new study backs up existing evidence that maternal immune activation can impact brain development in children. Researchers report immune activation during pregnancy or soon after birth can cause alterations to brain networks associated with social behavior, resulting in autism-like symptoms in the offspring.
Immune system activation that occurs as result of infection shortly after birth can cause persistent sleep pattern changes and neurodevelopmental disorders, a new study reveals.
