A new study implicated interneurons and pyramidal cells in the ability of a seizure to spread through the brain.
Blocking the breakdown of a specific fat molecule in the the brains of mice lead to reduced learning ability and memory retention. Additionally, researchers noted an increase of Alzheimer's related proteins. Findings may help explain how dementia may develop in humans, researchers say.
A new study challenges the belief that epileptic seizures can be predicted by brain wave patterns. Researchers report they have found no evidence that specific brain wave patterns can be a predictive indicator of seizure onset.
Study reveals lonely people showed reduced activity in the anterior insular cortex, an area of the brain associated with trust formation. The anterior insular cortex was less prominently connected to other brain regions in those who expressed feelings of loneliness.
A new study reveals how dangerous inflammations in the brain are caused during the aging process. Researchers say failure with the CB1 to control activity of immune cells may result in chronic neuroinflammation. They say it may be possible to break this vicious cycle in the future with drugs that contain THC, which is a powerful CB1 receptor activator.
A new mouse study reveals stress impacts motor learning and may lead to the development of motor deficits. Stress, researchers say, leaves traces in the brain that may be permanent.
Researchers use rabies viruses to see how well transplanted neural cells have connected to neural network in the brains of mice.
