While misinformation can cancel our accurate statements about climate change, researchers report that delivering a 'vaccine, or preemptive exposure, to fragments of misinformation may cancel out the negative false news and help preserve the facts.
When mental and physical tasks are put in direct competition, cognition tends to win out. Researchers suggest more energy is directed to the brain than the body, supporting the 'selfish brain' theory of evolution.
Researchers created model embryos from mouse stem cells that form a beating heart, a brain, and the foundation for other organs. The new model provides a novel way for future researchers to create and research the earliest stages of development.
Reconstituting the amount of chondroitin 6-sulphate to perineuronal nets completely restored memory and brain plasticity in aging mice to a similar level as seen in younger animals, a new study reports. The findings could lead to new therapies to restore age-related memory loss in older humans.
Artificial intelligence technology that uses CT brain scan images is successfully able to detect, segments, quantify, and differentiate between different types of brain lesions.
Researchers have developed a faster, more precise method of identifying which of a person's genes could be associated with a particular disease.
The heat produced by amyloid-beta aggregation may cause other, healthy amyloid-beta to aggregate, causing more and more aggregates to form. However, with the addition of a novel drug compound, amyloid-beta aggregation can be stopped and the cell temperature lowered.
Older adults with higher baseline apathy, as well as those with increasing apathy over time, were at higher risk of developing dementia. Neither baseline depression nor developing depression symptoms over time had a noticeable impact on a later diagnosis of dementia.
