The pioneering "soleus pushup" effectively elevates muscle metabolism for hours, even when sitting.
Researchers are developing a monthly monoclonal antibody therapy for the treatment and management of chronic pain. The hope is this new therapy can replace opioids for pain management.
Researchers discovered personal odors can alter in people with Parkinson's disease. Based on this, they identified specific markers for Parkinson's in sebum, an oily substance secreted from the skin. They developed a new, non-invasive swab test that can identify Parkinson's with 95% accuracy.
In rats, high-sugar diets lower the ability of the taste system to sense sweetness. However, curbing high sugar in the diet allowed sensitivity to sweetness to return.
Proteins associated with motor neuron disease, or ALS are present in the gut many years before disease pathologies can be found in the brain. A stool sample or gut biopsy could help identify the presence of MND-associated proteins years before symptoms appear.
Patterns of cognitive impairments suffered by those infected with COVID-19 were similar to those of healthy people who are sleep deprived. Additionally, worse symptoms of cognitive impairment in coronavirus patients were directly correlated with more severe infection.
US Senate candidate, John Fetterman, who suffered a stroke earlier this year, has been criticized by the opposition for his performance in recent broadcasts and in this week's debate. Following his stroke, Fetterman developed aphasia, auditory processing, and speech issues which have led some to question his fitness for office. While aphasia and auditory processing disorders can make the speech of sufferers difficult to understand, they do not imply cognitive impairments. Researchers shed light on aphasia and stroke recovery, reporting auditory processing symptoms as a result of stroke do not alter one's intelligence, behavior, or other executive abilities.
Vsx2 neurons are vital and sufficient for spinal cord stimulation therapies to be effective to restore motor function in those with spinal cord injury and for nerve fiber reorganization.
Researchers explore the phenomena of cognitive dissonance and explore ways in which individuals can reduce feelings of cognitive dissonance.
New brain-machine interface technology allows those who are immobile to control their wheelchairs through mind control. The BMI allows users to traverse natural and cluttered environments after training.
Music can induce a range of emotions and help us to better understand different cultures. But what is it that makes us tune in to some songs more than others? Researchers say when we listen to a song, our brains predict what happens next, and that prediction dictates whether we like that song or not.
