A new dual-drug therapy for alcohol use disorder appears to be effective and has fewer side effects or complications compared to other medications used to treat AUD.
Circadian rhythm disruptions in older men have been linked to an increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease. The findings suggest circadian disruptions may reflect the neurodegenerative processes already affecting the brain's internal clock prior to the diagnosis of Parkinson's. Circadian disruptions, researchers say, could be considered an early warning sign of Parkinson's.
People with untreated depression have lower levels of mitochondrial proteins. For those who responded to the SSRI antidepressants, the proteins returned to a normal level, but showed no increase in those who did not respond to medication.
Spending time enjoying the sunshine may help protect children and young adults from developing multiple sclerosis, a new study reports. Sun exposure boosts vitamin D levels and helps stimulate immune cells. Researchers report vitamin D may alter the biological function of immune cells, offering added protection against multiple sclerosis.
Digital cognitive behavioral therapy designed to curb insomnia during pregnancy reduces postpartum depression, researchers report.
Combining machine learning with neuroprosthetic technology allowed a patient with paralysis to learn to control a computer cursor by utilizing brain activity without extensive daily retraining.
Study shows how hippocampal cells can represent different hypothetical scenarios consistently and systematically over time. The findings shed new light on how place cells assist in decision making and imagination.
UCSF researchers reveal a common over the counter antihistamine appears to accelerate neural signaling and restore nervous system functioning for some multiple sclerosis patients.
1 in 4 patients in vegetative states following server head trauma regained orientation, meaning they were able to recall who they were, their location, and the date, 12 months after their injury.
Using neuroimaging and fluid biomarkers from those with the familial form of frontotemporal dementia (FTD), researchers developed models of clinical and biomarker dynamics to determine the temporal sequences of biomarkers and clinical changes in f-FTD before disease progression begins.
Retinal scans can help researchers detect Alzheimer's disease and track its progression in those with the APOE4 genetic risk factor for the neurodegenerative disorder. The scans can detect blood vessel deterioration linked to the genetic biomarker.
Children with dyslexia show stronger emotional responses than their peers without the disorder. The higher emotional reactivity was correlated with stronger activation in the salience network of the brain, a system that supports self-awareness and emotion.
