Researchers find changes in masticatory stimuli can modulate neurogenesis and hippocampal function. Published in the Journal of Dental Research, findings reveal reduced mastication impaired learning and memory function in mice.
Researchers report results of experiments designed to assess the impacts of social stress upon adolescent mice, both at the time they are experienced and during adulthood.
The inhibition of GCK-IV kinases leads to robust neuroprotection while permitting axon regeneration. The findings could lead to new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.
A new Zebra fish study reveals a lack of sensory stimulation following birth can impact neurogenesis and brain development.
Microglia may play a significant role in disrupting neurogenesis in those with Alzheimer's disease. When mice were given drugs which caused microglial cells to die, neurogenesis returned to normal.
