A large scale SPECT imaging study reveals women's brains are significantly more active in more regions than males, including the prefronal cortex and limbic areas. Visual and areas associated with coordination were more active in males, researchers noted.
N-acetylcysteine appears to help enable dopamine neurons to recover some function, researchers report.
A neuroimaging study reports dopamine activity does not reflect the number of dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra of people with Parkinson's disease.
Yoga has a positive effect on the structure and function of key brain areas associated with memory. Findings provide evidence that yoga may hold promise in mitigating age-related and neurodegenerative decline.
A new SPECT imaging study reveals those with treatment resistant depression have lower cerebral blood flow within the frontal, parietal and temporal lobes.
A new study reports marijuana users have lower blood flow to the hippocampus, an area of the brain associated with memory and learning.
Researchers have identified abnormal areas of low blood flow in living NFL players. The findings could help provide better diagnosis and treatments for players with head trauma related to playing football.
