Study finds the world is a much more similar and unified place than we thought.
Twin study reveals how we adapt to aging may be genetically influenced. Individual differences in blood DNA methylation are partly heritable later in life and longitudinally across a decade, researchers report.
Study finds olfaction plays a significant role in the motivation to exercise. Mice who were "high runners" developed genetic differences in their olfactory systems that caused them to perceive smells differently than more sedentary mice.
The meaning of "happiness" varies greatly, depending on where in the world a person lives.
Researchers have identified a mechanism triggered at neuron birth to intrinsically decrease apoptosis. When the genetic regulation is halted, continuous neuronal survival is disrupted, leading to a decrease in animal survival.
Researchers have identified a specific mechanism involved in how females inherit traits. The findings could help reduce susceptibility to Fragile X and Rett syndrome, the researchers report.
IndCl, a drug that improves myelination and reduces motor disability, appears to improve visual problems associated with multiple sclerosis.
Suppressing TLR4 activity following a traumatic brain injury, such as concussion, reduces excitability, and improves working memory performance up-to a month later.
