A new study reports paracetamol (acetaminophen) could damage the development of male behaviors in offspring if taken while a female is pregnant.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have made a significant discovery as to how schizophrenia may occur. They discovered a genetic defect that causes damage to glial cells may also impair the production of myelin. Researchers believe the lack of myelin may be a significant contributor to the development of schizophrenia in some patients.
University of Copenhagen researchers have identified two areas of the midbrain that appear to play specific roles in the start, speed and content of dependent selection of locomotion in mice.
Researchers report on why some people may experience increasing levels of aggression at the end of the day. The study reports the scientists have developed new gene editing tools to help turn of cells that cause sundowning behaviors.
Researchers have identified a reduced exchange of glutamine between astrocytes and neurons in a new Huntington's disease study.
Researchers have identified a common denominator for 'dark' personality traits they have dubbed the D-factor. D-factor, researchers report, can be defined as the general tendency to maximize personal goals and interests over those of another, often to the extent of taking pleasure in hurting others.
By stimulating cold and nicotine receptors, researchers successfully improved metabolism in mice, helping them to lose weight. Further studies will investigate whether the same results can be achieved in humans.
A new study reports chaotic swings in the concentration of the NF-kB protein can increase activation of the number of genes not otherwise activates, optimally tuning the immune system.
Researchers report dysfunctional mitophagy may contribute to the development of Alzheimer's disease. When mitophagy is improved, symptoms of Alzheimer's almost disappeared in animal models of the disease.
