Arizona State University researchers claim microbiota transfer therapy reduces symptoms associated with autism and gastrointestinal problems for two years post-treatment. The study suggests MTT may be a promising option for helping to treat children with ASD who also have GI problems. The researchers stress further research, including double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trials with a larger cohort be carried out.
While much research has shown that exercise can be good for our brains, the link between how physical activity benefits the brain is not clearly understood. In a new study, researchers suggest the link between brain health and exercise could be a product of our evolutionary history and our hunter-gatherer past.
Vision appears to play a more dominant role than motor movements when it comes to encoding memory of large-scale spaces. The findings address a long-standing debate as to whether or not body movements aid the learning of physical spaces.
Researchers have identified a brain region and neural circuitry that mediates satiation.
Cannabis terpenes, the part of the plant which provides aroma and flavor, may provide therapeutic benefits in controlling pain, a new study reports.
Cyclodextrin, an FDA-approved drug, reduced cholesterol accumulation from broken down brain cells and inflammation in animal models. The findings point to a potential new therapy to reduce dementia following a stroke.
Researchers have developed a new, wireless optogenetic device which is able to control neurons in the brain. The device could help turn off pain receptors and reduce the effects of some neurological disorders.
A new study reports that while an afternoon naps are beneficial for memory and learning in typically developing children, in those with Down syndrome, napping may increase memory loss.
