Using brain simulations, researchers report emergency cooling techniques could help to minimize long term damage that arises as a result of birth complications and limit the effects of stroke.
A new study reports babies born prematurely show better brain development when fed breast milk rather than formula.
A new study reveals verbal and physical signs of deception are harder to detect than people believe.
A new study sheds light on brain cells implicated in multiple sclerosis. Researchers found there are several types of oligodendrocytes, and the ratio of these cells differ significantly in those with MS. The findings could help develop new targeted treatments for progressive multiple sclerosis.
Zebrafish study reveals how key dopaminergic neurons, which are damaged as a result of Parkinson's disease, can be regenerated. Researchers report the immune system plays a critical role in the process.
Vitamin D causes dendritic cells to produce more CD31, hindering the activation of T cells. The study sheds light on how vitamin D deficiency regulates the immune system and can lead to autoimmune diseases, like multiple sclerosis.
Two drugs commonly prescribed to treat heart disease and angina, are well tolerated in stroke patients. Early indications suggest the treatments may help to improve blood vessel function in the arms and brain, and may also improve cognitive skills.
