A new small-scale study reveals transcranial direct current stimulation improved gait and increased the benefits of aerobic exercise in Parkinson's patients.
Like humans, zebra finches can recognize songs by their rhythmic pattern, even when the tempo is changed.
New studies have identified an association between daily high coffee consumption, brain shrinkage and an increased risk of dementia. However, researchers were unable to identify a causal relationship between caffeine consumption and dementia. The study also found moderate coffee consumption was associated with lower dementia risk than high consumption, or abstaining from caffeinated drinks.
A new mouse line makes the state of protein balance visible in the mammalian brain for the first time, allowing researchers to investigate disorders associated with protein misfolding.
An experimental small molecule helped restore the removal of mitochondria from dopamine-producing neurons in the brain. The findings may help in the development of new therapies for Parkinson's disease.
A new hydrogel that acts as a gateway to transfer stem cells into the brain and facilitate repair to damaged tissue may effectively treat neurological conditions like Parkinson's disease and stroke.
Farnesol, a naturally occurring compound found in berries and other fruits, prevents the loss of dopamine-producing neurons and reverses Parkinson's associated damage to the brain in mouse models.
A new study reveals adults with ADHD have an increased risk of developing nervous system, respiratory, musculoskeletal, and metabolic diseases. ADHD was also associated with a slightly increased risk of Parkinson's disease, dementia, and cardiovascular disease.
Weekly musical dance classes can help to improve daily living and motor functions in those with mild-to-moderate Parkinson's disease.
Chronic gut inflammation can trigger the clumping of alpha-synuclein in the walls of the colon, a new study reports. Researchers found chronic inflammation in the gut during early life can exacerbate the clumping of alpha-synuclein in the brains of older mice. The findings add to a growing body of evidence which links gut health to Parkinson's disease.
