Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center report that molecular disruptions in small neurons called granule cells – located in the dentate gyrus region of the brain – caused brain seizures in mice similar to those seen in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
Newly formed emotional memories can be erased from the human brain.The findings may represent a breakthrough in research on memory and fear. This is shown by researchers from Uppsala University in a study being published by Science.
Performing post-mortem staging of the brains and spinal cord tissue of patients with ALS, researchers discover the neurodegenerative disease could progress from one start point in the CNS to other regions of the brain and spinal cord.
Researchers discover early accumulation of amyloid plaques in the temporal lobe is associated with cognitive decline. The finding could serve as a new biomarker for the early detection of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified a new and more accurate way to determine which portions of the brain suffer from epilepsy. The information could provide patients and doctors with better information as to whether temporal lobe surgery will provide the best treatment outcome.
