Using zebrafish models, researchers detected genes with altered levels of expression. The genetic variations were associated with abnormalities with mitochondrial function and the production of ATP.
Genetic mutations which lead to abnormal RNA in regions of repeat DNA sequences set off anti-viral like inflammatory responses. This leads to apoptosis and ultimately trigger the onset of neurodegenerative diseases.
Study reports people who experience bullying or abuse have a lower quality of life comparable to those living with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes or depression. The study also reports those who are abused are more likely to develop harmful behaviors such as smoking or binge eating.
A new study reveals the youngest children in a class are more likely than their older peers to be diagnosed with ADHD. Researchers say the problem may lie with some teachers mistakenly believing a child's immaturity compared to older classmates is actually ADHD.
University of Adelaide researchers have identified a genetic link between autism and cerebral palsy. The study reports disruptions in signalling pathways in children with cerebral palsy overlap disruptions identified in autism.
Want to remember your dreams? Try taking vitamin B6. Researchers discovered people who take B6 supplements are better able to recall details of their dreams compared to those who were given a placebo.
University of Adelaide researchers report schizophrenia linked genes in bipolar patients may explain why some don't respond to lithium.
It has been well known for a number of years that placing a baby to sleep on their stomachs increases the risk of SIDS. Researchers report a developmental abnormality more prevalent in premature and male babies, may contribute to SIDS risk, in conjunction to the sleep position.
According to a new study, researchers were able to reduce the urge to drink alcohol in mice by blocking an immune response in the brain. The study reveals a link between the immune system and the motivation to indulge in drinking at night.
