When feeling stressed people are more likely to jump to more undesirable conclusions based on little evidence, a new study concludes.
K.Vita, a new oral dietary substance based on the ketogenic diet, reduced seizures by up to 50% in children and adults with drug-resistant epilepsy.
Researchers found a correlation between better cognitive function and lower risk of emotional or behavioral problems in children and teens who live close to woodland areas and green spaces.
Researchers report a cleaner living environment may not detrimentally impact a child's developing immune system, as current theories suggest.
Neuroimaging study reveals abnormalities in memory replay in those with schizophrenia.
People who trust their gut instinct with simple decision-making strategies make equally as good, but faster, decisions as those who rely on data methods alone.
Neurological and psychological symptoms associated with COVID-19 infection, such as fatigue and depression, are more common in those with mild coronavirus infection than previously believed.

Researchers found a causal link between tooth loss and functional capacity in older adults. Tooth loss was also associated with a decline in social activity.
Researchers have identified a layer of genetic material involved in controlling the production of tau in the brain. The material is part of a larger family of non-coding genes that regulate and control other brain proteins associated with neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, and PSP. The findings could lead to the development of new therapeutics to treat a range of neurodegenerative disorders.
A newly developed robotic thumb imprints how the hand is represented in the brain. Using the robotic thumb, researchers reported improvements in conducting dexterity tasks, such as building with blocks. Additionally, those who trained to use the additional thumb began to feel as though the digit was a part of their body.
Glioblastoma can mimic the normal repair of white matter in the brain, causing the tumor to become less malignant. Additionally, a drug commonly prescribed for asthma can help suppress glioblastoma growth in mouse models.
