A new study reports long term use of antibiotics in mice decreased levels of amyloid plaques and activated inflammatory microglial cells.
Researchers report that a commonly prescribed antidepressant may also protect against compounds that can cause memory loss and dementia.
Researchers report the antidepressant paroxetine suppresses neuroinflammation in improves reaction time in people with HIV associated cognitive impairment.
Researchers have discovered a direct association between astrocytes and Alzheimer's disease. In a new study, researchers report astrocytes in the brains of Alzheimer's patients produced significantly more amyloid beta than astrocytes in the brains of people without the disease.
Researchers discover a slightly increased risk of children developing autism if the mother had a fever during the second trimester of pregnancy. However, researchers found no cases of ASD in children of mothers who took ibuprofen to help manage the fever, a new study reports.
A new study published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience provides new evidence that bacterial infection and inflammation could contribute to Alzheimer's disease. Researchers found a tenfold higher overall ratio of Actinobacteria to Proteobacteria in the brains of Alzheimer's patients compared to those without the disease.
Researchers have identified a new biomarker for spinal cord and brain inflammation.
Researchers show memory pathology in older mice can be reversed by blocking the activity of a specific receptor in the brain. Blocking the B1R receptor helps recover memory and cerebrovascular function.
A new blood test can accurately predict whether a person will respond to common antidepressants.
A new blood-brain barrier on a chip system is being used to study neuroinflammation, researchers report.
