A new study found altered cortical and subcortical networks in those with schizophrenia and their unaffected first-degree relatives. Findings suggest brain regions associated with a genetic predisposition to schizophrenia are partly separated from brain regions implicating neural abnormalities.
SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, can infect human neural progenitor cells and brain organoids. The findings back previous research, finding coronavirus can infect the human brain.
Acute exercise in older adults has a positive impact on brain regions associated with memory and recall. Older adults who engaged in acute exercise had greater activation in the temporal gyrus, fusiform gyrus and hippocampus, resulting in increased semantic memory activation.
Researchers say those who use both cannabis and nicotine have greater brain connectivity that those who take one or the other. The networks of those who used both substances closely resembled those who people who took neither drug.
A new study sheds light on the mechanisms of gyrus formation.
Exposing depressed adolescents to positive and negative words elicited different effects in specific brain regions depending on the sex of the subject, a new Frontiers in Psychiatry study reports.
Neuroimaging study isolates functional differences between autistic and non-autistic brains, researchers report.
