Researchers characterize a novel neural population within the striatum that appears to be responsible for the interplay between acetylcholine and GABA.
Study reveals the loss of smell and taste associated with the Delta wave of COVID-19 infection was a prevalent symptom and not prevented by the vaccines. Many who contracted COVID during the earlier phases of the disease experienced loss of taste and smell for months following infection.
A new mouse study identifies a targeted delivery method system that boosts the number of specialized anti-inflammatory immune cells within the brain to areas restricted by brain inflammation and damage. The system helped to protect against apoptosis associated with brain injury, stroke, and multiple sclerosis.
Muffled sounds experienced in the womb prime the brain’s ability to interpret some sounds and may be key for auditory development.
The FMNL2 gene links cerebrovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports. Changes of activity in the FMNL2 caused by cerebrovascular disease prevent the efficient cleaning of toxic proteins in the brain, leading to the development of Alzheimer's disease.
From keeping active and eating a healthy diet to controlling cholesterol and reducing sugar intake, researchers report on seven simple lifestyle changes older adults with genetic risk factors can make to reduce the chance of developing dementia.
Increasing synchronization of neurons in the upstream brain region that transmits information leads to a significant improvement in the transmission of information and information processing in the downstream region.
A new imaging technique captures information about the function and structure of brain tissue at the subcellular level.
