A new mouse model of Alzheimer's more closely resembles the human version of the disease. Researchers believe the new model may help accelerate new therapeutic avenues to treat the disease.
Both genetics and environmental factors contribute to socioeconomic status' impact in an interplay with effects that spans several areas of the brain.
Both food timing and the integrity of the internal clock in the liver altered rhythms of metabolism in mice. Almost half of the rhythmic genes are regulated by both the internal clock and when food is ingested.

Researchers report a 41% increase in the prescription of opioids for small animals over the past 10 years. The study reports the increase could potentially provide human access to the drugs, fueling the opioid epidemic.
Dantrolene, a common muscle relaxant, shows promise in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Mice administered the drug intranasally had higher concentrations of the medicine in their brains, and for longer periods, than those who received it orally. The drug has been shown to help inhibit or slow the progression of several neurodegenerative diseases.
The loss of the protein neurofibromin 1 (NF1) in adult male flies resulted in social impairments. The deficits were traced back to a primary disruption in a small group of peripheral neurons which control external stimuli, including touch and smell, that communicate to the brain.
HIV infection leads to increased EIF2 signaling in microglia, astrocytes, and neurons. Study reveals how HIV infection and some antiretrovirals affect cognition and the central nervous system.
