Researchers have made a significant breakthrough in restoring the ability to form lasting memories in older or damaged brains.
Skin and liver cells appear to have their own circadian clock. Both the liver and skin respond to changes in light and maintain critical function, independent of the brain's circadian rhythm.
Researchers link the rise in acute stress and depression rates in the U.S to multiple stressors, such as unemployment and coronavirus-related media consumption.
The brain's immune cells may contribute to the development of Alzheimer's disease. Turning off microglia in specific areas of the brain prevented the formation of amyloid plaques. The findings could help pave the way for new treatments for Alzheimer's.
Researchers generate microglia from stem cells derived from the skin. They believe their findings could help advance the understanding of the role microglia plays in Alzheimer's.
A new study reports participating in light physical activity, such as yoga or tai chi, can help to increase connectivity between brain areas responsible for memory formation and storage.
Researchers have identified a neurobiological basis for the processing and reactivation of spatial information in rodents.
Researchers successfully used electroacupuncture to increase the gene expression of enkephalins and reduce blood pressure for three days.
Study reveals a molecular action that enables cilantro to effectively delay seizures. One component of cilantro, dodecenal, binds to a specific part of the potassium channel to open them, reducing cellular excitability.
Reducing the expression of the protein TOM1 in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease increased the pathology, exacerbated cognitive problems, and raised levels of inflammation in the brain. Restoring TOM1 reversed the effects. Findings suggest a new therapeutic target for treating dementia.
A newly identified neural network in the hippocampal formation plays a critical role in memory and object-location learning. The findings are highly relevant to learning and memory disorders, including Alzheimer's disease.
