According to a new study, poor physical fitness in middle age may be linked to lower brain volume in later life.
A new study reports air evacuations may pose a significant added risk for people with TBI as they could potentially cause more damage.
Depleting the protein ADORA2B from the blood of mice led to faster cognitive decline, decreased auditory processing, and increased brain inflammation.
Decreased blood flow and blood oxygen levels to the hippocampus may explain symptoms of memory loss associated with Alzheimer's. Researchers say increasing hippocampal blood flow could reverse or protect against symptoms of the neurodegenerative disorder.
Cognitive challenges trigger a slight oxygen deficit in hippocampal pyramidal neurons. This increases the production of erythropoietin (Epo) and its receptors in the active neurons, stimulating neighboring precursor cells to form new neurons and enhancing connectivity.
A new study reports a modified $40 cotton candy machine could hold the key to creating artificial organs and capillary networks.
Ischemic preconditioning may help to prevent stroke, a new study reports. Restricting blood flow by wearing inflatable blood pressure cuffs on the arms and legs allows for more controlled blood flow to the brain.
Researchers directly measured oxygen levels in an intact brain and correlated it with neural activity. During normal activity, only 50% of oxygen is used for neural activity, the remaining 50% is required for glial cells and maintaining the metabolic rate of other nerve cells.
