Augmenting exposure therapy with ten minutes of aerobic exercise reduces PTSD symptom severity for up to six months after a nine-week course of treatment ends.
After the loss of a pet, many people report experiencing disenfranchised grief that can not be resolved and may turn into complicated grief. Validating a person's sense of grief with empathy and understanding can help resolve the pain of loss following the death of a pet.
The fossil of a 525-million-year-old tiny sea creature with a preserved nervous system may solve a century-long debate about how the brains of arthropods evolved.
The method by which a parent helps their young child to sleep impacts their behavior, a new study reports. Children of parents who use passive sleep assistance methods, such as singing or cuddling, have higher sociability scores. Those with parents who use more active sleep methods, such as playing or car rides, are fussier and have more difficult temperaments.
For children, the run-up to Christmas seems to take forever, but for adults, time appears to fly as the Holiday season approaches. Researchers say this is because our perception of time alters as we age.
A neural circuit that decodes the start, duration and sudden change of speed of locomotion has been identified.
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.
Octopuses have a massively expanded repertoire of miRNA in their neural tissue, reflecting a similar development to that which occurred in vertebrates. Findings suggest miRNA plays a significant role in the development of complex brains.
Previous TBI increased the risk of frontotemporal dementia in those without a genetic risk factor for FTD. Additionally, researchers found those with FTD tend to be less educated than those with Alzheimer's disease.
Contrary to expectations, researchers found older adults who live in countries with greater age bias had better health outcomes than those who lived in countries with less age bias. The study found older people tend to live longer in countries with more negative attitudes toward the aging population.
