Researchers have identified five genes across the genome that enable efficient sleep.
A new machine learning algorithm was able to predict, with 98% accuracy, which patients would develop Alzheimer's disease, six years prior to diagnosis by analyzing PET brain scans.
Researchers report keeping levels of KYNA low throughout a worm's life can help prevent the onsite of age-related cognitive decline.
UCSF researchers report the food and beverage industries push sugary products while obfuscating the significant health issues added sugars can cause. The findings shed light on sugars' link to disease and exposes industrial tactics to downplay the public health risks of diets too high in sugar.
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.
A new, large-scale neuroimaging study found potentially life-threatening conditions in 1 out of 500 seemingly healthy children, and minor yet clinically significant brain abnormalities in 1 out of 25 children.
Older adults who remain active have more of a class of proteins that enhance synapses to help maintain healthy cognitive function.
Hailed by many as a breakthrough for neuroscience research, a new study reports brain-in-a-dish models may not be as useful as reported previously. The study reports instead of differentiating normally into the brain's distinctive cell types, cerebral organoids often express mixed genes normally found in different kinds of cells.
