Researchers have identified a "sweet spot" during exercise that appears to reverse age-related cognitive decline and improves learning in mouse models.
Stem cells collected from the placentas of women who gave birth to healthy babies could reduce neuroinflammation and reduce brain injury in growth-restricted babies.
Brain organoids can be used to study molecular mechanisms that drive brain aging and neurodegenerative disorders. The mini-brains allow for the testing of molecules that could become potential therapeutic treatment options for neurodegenerative diseases.
Saturated fatty acid levels rise in the brain during the formation of new memories, researchers say. The highest levels of saturated fatty acids were found in the amygdala, an area of the brain associated with fear and emotional memories.
Study reveals personality disorders and schizophrenia are the most debilitating mental illnesses to live with.
The SARM1 protein triggers a cascade of degeneration associated with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other neurodegenerative diseases. Researchers hope new drugs can be developed to directly target this protein to fight neurodegeneration.
