Fear responses can only be erased when people learn something new while retrieving the fear memory according to a new study.
A new study is to investigate whether music affects the health of cancer patients by soothing them and making them less anxious. Depending on the outcomes, future research could hone in on how much anxiety levels decreased after music therapy and how reduced anxiety affects a patient's recovery time, complications and willingness to comply with treatment.

New research into concussions sustained during sports shows damage to the brain can persist for decades after an original or head trauma. The long-term consequences of concussions include memory loss, attention deficits and motor control problems.
Known for successfully transplanting a bioengineered stem cell-based trachea, surgeon Paolo Macchiarini plans to use his technique to recreate more complex tissue. He has recently made attempts to regenerate brain tissue in rats and mice.
Researchers identify regions of genes linked to Behçet’s disease, a poorly understood condition that causes painful and serious symptoms, including ulcers and brain inflammation. The study identified novel gene variants in the inflammatory disorder and uncovered data that could apply to studies of other diseases.
Researchers discover neuronal activity can stimulate tau release from healthy neurons in the absence of cell death. The study shows treatment of neurons with known biological signaling molecules increases the release of tau into the culture medium.
According to a new study, the most common genetic cause of Parkinson’s is not only responsible for the condition’s distinctive movement problems but may also affect vision.
Researchers discovered that a low protein diet can slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease in mice. By cycling between a normal and protein restricted diet, researchers noted both improvement in memory and a slowing in the advancement of the disease.
Using fMRI for before-and-after analysis, a team of researchers discovered positive changes in brain activity in children with autism who received a particular type of behavioral therapy.
