Prosopagnosia, or "face-blindness", involves an entire network, not just one area of the brain. The findings may shed light on poor facial processing abilities associated with autism.
Researchers have discovered an elevated risk of intracerebral hemorrhage in people found to have a specific bacterium in their saliva.
Researchers report poor attentiveness and becoming more distracted during simple tasks could signify early symptoms of cerebral small vessel disease.
Adding icosapent ethyl, a triglyceride-lowering medication that is high in the omega 3 fatty acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, in combination with statins helped to reduce stroke risk by 36% in those with cardiovascular disease.
Adults who experienced traumatic events, including abuse and household dysfunction, as children had an increased risk of developing neurological conditions later in life. Additionally, researchers found a significant link between childhood trauma and depression and anxiety in adulthood.

Using AI technology to analyze CMR scans, researchers were able to precisely quantify the blood flow to the heart muscles of patients. Comparing the AI-generated blood flow results with health outcomes, the team found those with reduced blood flow were at increased risk of stroke, heart attacks, and heart failure. The machine-learning algorithm was able to predict which patients may die or suffer major adverse health events better than doctors could.
According to researchers, air pollution has become one of the leading global risk factors for stroke.
A newly developed artificial neural connection device allows new cortical sites, previously not associated with limb movements, to swiftly regain the control of a paralyzed hand.
