Researchers report deep brain stimulation has little benefit for those suffering from early onset Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers report activating microglia may help reduce the imbalance between neuroprotection and neurotoxicity for neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have successfully transplanted human brain cells into mouse brains and watched how they grow to form networks. The technique could be used to study a range of neurological conditions, the researchers report.
A new brain imaging study reveals how the midbrain and striatum, two key areas of the dopamine system, become more active when a person updates their beliefs about the world around them.
A new study reports daytime sleepiness may increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report those who are sleepy during the day are three times more likely to have amyloid beta deposits in their brains.
According to researchers, it may soon be possible to diagnose Alzheimer's disease during a simple eye exam. The study reports those with elevated amyloid and tau levels have significant thinning at the center of the retina.
By the time typical symptoms of Parkinson's appear and patients are diagnosed with the disease, 60% of people experience significant damage to the heart's connections to the sympathetic nervous system. Researchers have investigated where inflammation and oxidative stress occur in the heart, and how this relates to heart problems associated with Parkinson's.
A new study reveals people with schizophrenia have a disrupted stress response. Researchers report those with schizophrenia have an increase in dopamine release in the striatum, but not in the prefrontal cortex, in response to stress.
