Researchers discovered personal odors can alter in people with Parkinson's disease. Based on this, they identified specific markers for Parkinson's in sebum, an oily substance secreted from the skin. They developed a new, non-invasive swab test that can identify Parkinson's with 95% accuracy.
Study reveals how the element of surprise helps facilitate learning and memory retrieval.
A smaller version of the amyloid-beta protein, AB 1-40, builds up on the wall of small arteries and reduces blood flow to the brain, a new study reports.
Hearing loss was associated with an increased risk of depression in older adults. Those of lower socioeconomic status were twice as likely to report symptoms of depression. However, using hearing aids helped alleviate symptoms of depression.
Researchers have developed a new, non-invasive test to diagnose Parkinson's disease which relies on a simple skin swab. The test analyses sebum, the oily substance that coats and protects the skin. People with Parkinson's often have increased production of sebum. The researchers identified 10 compounds within sebum that were either elevated or reduced in people with Parkinson's.
A genetic disorder caused by protein synthesis that results in learning and developmental difficulties can be treated by spermidine, a compound isolated from human sperm.
Schizophrenia may, in part, be caused by immune system dysfunction, a new study reports. Treatment with Methotrexate, a drug commonly prescribed for autoimmune disorders like R.A, produced positive effects against some prominent schizophrenia symptoms.
Bisexual people are over six times more likely to engage in non-suicidal self-injury than people of other sexual orientations, a new study reports. Symptoms of depression and anxiety were contributory factors to the self-harming behaviors.
Deterioration in hearing and persistent tinnitus may be another feature of COVID-19 infection, researchers report. A significant number of patients reported hearing loss and other auditory problems eight weeks after being discharged from hospital for coronavirus. Researchers say it is possible COVID-19 could damage parts of the auditory system, resulting in hearing loss.
A new study confirms a link between the severity of symptoms for those with chronic pain and atmospheric weather conditions. Low atmospheric pressure was associated with more severe symptoms of pain.
