Researchers identified a specific neural network that positively responds to melatonin following concussion in children. Results suggest melatonin may help compensate for normal brain function that has been interrupted due to injury caused by concussion and helps prevent sleep disturbances.
The thickness of the brain's neocortex influences how individual neurons process information, a new study reveals.
Researchers report on the role of the thalamus in perception and reaction to predators.
Study identifies a new "seeding" process in neurons that could be a cause of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers report intravenous immunoglobin can reduce inflammation and may improve recovery from spinal cord injuries.
Applying transcranial direct current stimulation to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex can help to improve cognitive control and may be a beneficial treatment for those with autism, schizophrenia and ADHD, a new study reports.
Researchers report vitamin D levels affect perineuronal nets in the hippocampus. The study found vitamin D deficiency resulted in a significant decline in memory and learning in mouse models.
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.
