Brain signatures and types of difficulties children of a lower socioeconomic status experience when it comes to reading are different from those children who struggle to read but are from a higher socioeconomic status.
When people carry the Alzheimer's associated APOE4 gene, oligodendrocytes fail to transport fatty molecules to wrap neurons that make brain circuitry connections. This deficit of myelin may contribute to the pathology and symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.
A new in-home device that monitors movement and gait speed can evaluate Parkinson's disease severity, progression, and a patient's response to medication.
A newly developed artificial intelligence model can detect Parkinson's disease by reading a person's breathing patterns. The algorithm can also discern the severity of Parkinson's disease and track progression over time.
Images of food stimulate a newly discovered population of food-responsive neurons in the ventral visual stream. Researchers believe there may be an evolutionary reason for this neural population that may reflect the significance of food in human culture.
Alzheimer's disease disrupts some forms of visual memory by degrading a newly identified brain circuit that connects the primary visual cortex of each hemisphere.
Researchers reveal how the anterior cingulate cortex and motor cortex collaborate to update behaviors when adding a new step to an established task.
Microglia that express the Alzheimer's associated APOE4 genetic variant are unable to effectively metabolize lipids. This causes lipids to build up, promoting inflammation and preventing effective neurotransmission.
In a study of speakers of 45 languages, researchers found similar patterns of brain activity and language selectivity.
Artificial intelligence helps shed new light on why many with autism have a difficult time when it comes to processing emotions via facial expressions.
Neurons in the parafascicular thalamus project to three different parts of the basal ganglia. Targeting these circuits could be a new target for treating motor dysfunction and depression associated with Parkinson's disease.
