A new study raises concern about chronic exposure of workers in industry to a food flavoring ingredient used to produce the distinctive buttery flavor and aroma of microwave popcorn, margarines, snack foods, candy, baked goods, pet foods and other products. It found evidence that the ingredient, diacetyl (DA), intensifies the damaging effects of an abnormal brain protein linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers discover a new phase of synaptic development. The finding could lead to a better understanding of how learning and memory occur.
Researchers uncover clues about the biochemical pathway in the brain which could expand treatment options for schizophrenia.
Researchers have discovered Mannitol, a sugar alcohol commonly found in sugar-free gum and candy, prevents clumps of the protein α-synuclein from building in the brain. This build of this protein is characteristic of Parkinson's disease. The finding could provide potential treatment options for this and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Using sophisticated imaging techniques, researchers observe a molecular protein folding process which could help better understand and treat neurodegenerative diseases and cancers.
Researchers suggest serotonin metabolism in the pineal gland could play a role in the underlying cause of depression. The findings were based on biochemical changes which were seen to be in association with improvements in depression.
A new study finds that between ages 3 and 10, children with ASD exhibit distinct brain chemical changes which differ from children with developmental delays and those considered to undergo typical neurodevelopment.
