Automated computer-based training that focuses on positive words and images helps prolong the antidepressant effects of ketamine for those with treatment-resistant depression.
Getting up early and remaining active throughout the day helps older adults perform better on cognitive tests, a new study reports.
In the cerebral cortex, when somatostatin neurons become active, other nearby somatostatin neurons became active as well. The distance over which somatostatin neurons shared activity expanded in the posterior parietal cortex.
While neuroimaging may be a standard in neuroscience and psychology research, a new study says researchers are massively underestimating how large the study sample must be for a neuroimaging study to produce reliable findings.
Electrically stimulating surviving nerves in the upper spinal cord following severe spinal cord injury improved motor control in upper limbs and allowed monkeys with limited arm function to regain lost movement.
Oxidative damage to telomeres can trigger cellular senescence. The findings could lead to the development of new therapeutics for healthy aging and to combat cancers.
Researchers report multiple areas of the frontal lobe control the muscles of vocalizations and could control complex speech. The findings refute the long-standing belief that only the primary motor cortex directly influences the larynx.
Regular exercise may help reduce declines in episodic memory for older adults.
