Laughing and smiling more might help to buffer against the effects of stress, researchers report.
Study implicates the mps-2 gene in the formation of long-term memory.
Study identifies a population of neurons in an area of the midbrain, called the red nucleus, that alter when fine motor skills are learned. The more an action is practiced, the stronger the connections between these neurons become.
Using exercise programs that help boost motor skills can help reduce problems with impulse control and aid cognitive development in children born preterm.
A new study questions previous assumption about how Parkinson's disease develops and progresses.
Researchers have identified a number of variable locations in the genome that influence hippocampal gene activity and may contribute to brain disorders.
Using neuroimaging and mathematical graph theory, researchers discover it is possible to detect those at risk of developing psychosis by examining cortical folding.
Researchers have designed two proteins that are able to stabilize cell scaffolding linking to muscle fibers, restoring muscle structure and function. The two proteins also were able to significantly prolong survival in animal models of muscular dystrophy.
