A new study reports memory and attention impairments may be a result of increased activity in the hippocampus.
Researchers successfully grew adult human neurons from tissue donated from surgery patients. The researchers were able to identify at least 5 brain cell types and the potential proteins each cell could make.
"Orgasmic meditation" produces a distinct pattern of brain activity, researchers report. The practice alters activity in the frontal lobe and temporal lobe, an area of the brain associated with emotional processing.
Researchers published a study outlining how a new type of non-invasive brain scan taken immediately after a seizure gives additional insight into possible causes and treatments for epilepsy patients.
Light exercise, such as walking, could offer hope for re-establishing some neural connections in people with MCI and Alzheimer's.
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.
Tau PET neuroimaging could help open the door to developing new drugs to treat Alzheimer's disease.
