Blood from young adult, fit mice benefits the brain of sedentary mice of the same age. A single protein, clusterin, appears to be largely responsible for the benefit.
SAINT, a new intensive and individualized form of transcranial magnetic stimulation reduces symptoms of depression within days of treatment. 80% of the people administered SAINT reported remission from depression symptoms that lasted for months following treatment.
Serotonin-producing neurons in the brainstem release serotonin throughout the brain during moments of novel social encounters. The release of serotonin stimulates neurons in the medial septum via a subtype of serotonin-sensitive receptor molecules. Blocking the release of this receptor molecule prevents the formation of new social memories.
Researchers propose a novel computational framework that uses artificial intelligence technology to disentangle the relationship between perception and memory in the human brain.
A diet rich in fermented foods, such as yogurt and kimchi, can help to improve gut microbiome diversity and reduce symptoms of chronic inflammation, a new study reports.
Recent studies have found significant biases in artificial intelligence algorithms. Researchers are raising their concerns about AI biases associated with medical devices and algorithms used to analyze health risks. If left unchecked, they say, the technologies could continue to perpetuate sex, gender, and race biases that could exacerbate health care disparities.
Addressing a previous, widely criticized research paper, a new study reveals there is no link between epidurals during childbirth and an increased risk of autism diagnosis in children.
Findings shed new light on how the brain wires during development.
A single protein called 15-PGDH appears to be a master regulator of muscle function during aging. Blocking the protein in mice increased muscle strength and endurance.
A new study reveals a correlation between multimedia multitasking, memory loss, and difficulties in maintaining attention.
