Weill Neurohub announces a long-term research partnership with Genentech and Roche Holding AG to advance the development of new therapeutics for debilitating brain and central nervous system diseases.
Increased alpha waves in the prefrontal cortex and decreased P3 activity in the parietal cortex are potential neural biomarkers for breaks in our attention span.
Study reveals the universality of human facial expressions in response to emotion that spans geographical and cultural borders.
Current sleep patterns could help determine your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease as you age. People who experience more fragmented sleep and less non-REM slow-wave sleep are more likely to have increased levels of amyloid-beta.
Using EEG to measure REM sleep allowed scientists to distinguish dreaming from wakefulness.
Diluting the blood plasma of older mice has a stronger rejuvenating effect on the brain, liver, and muscles than transplanting the blood of younger mice.
Immunization with the vaccines for pneumococcal conjugate and rotavirus reduces the rates of acute respiratory infections and gastrointestinal infections in small children, thus reducing the need for antibiotic medications. Researchers say if universal childhood vaccination is achieved, an additional 40 million cases of antibiotic-treated illnesses could be prevented each year.
Despite all of the public health warnings, many people are still ignoring instructions to socially distance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many influential people are downplaying the severity of the virus, and convincing others that coronavirus is not as serious as health professionals would have us believe. In light of this, researchers discuss why some people stick to their beliefs and act with skepticism, despite overwhelming contradictory evidence.
Combining two-photon fluorescent microscopy and all-optical laser scanning, researchers can image the brain of an alert mouse 1,000 times a second, recording the passage of millisecond electrical pulses through neurons.
Researchers have created a new technique that can rapidly "print' two-dimensional arrays of cells and proteins that mimic a variety of cellular environments in the body.
