Study reveals a strong association between what we eat as young children and our food preferences as adults. Findings reveal early gustatory experiences and diet influence brain development.
First responders at the World Trade Center who experience cognitive impairment and PTSD have a different presentation of white matter in the brain compared to first responders with cognitive impairment without PTSD. Researchers say the findings point to a new and specific form of dementia for those responders with PTSD.
First responders at the World Trade Center have reduced cortical gray matter thickness, which was consistent with neurodegenerative conditions and evidence their brain age is, on average, ten years older than those of similar ages in the general population.
Typical interventions for schizophrenia do not improve long-term outcomes, even when administered early, a new study reports.
A new theoretical model helps explain how the gustatory cortex mediates the expectation of receiving a taste. The model sheds light on the neural basis of expectation.
Researchers believe their findings may provide a new path to the study of Alzheimer's disease and its cause.
