Decreased blood flow and blood oxygen levels to the hippocampus may explain symptoms of memory loss associated with Alzheimer's. Researchers say increasing hippocampal blood flow could reverse or protect against symptoms of the neurodegenerative disorder.
A new framework outperforms previous models in predicting and assessing neural network properties.
With the help of snails, researchers investigate the neural processes at work when we develop food aversions after eating a bad meal.
Study reveals binge drinking is associated with more widespread neural dysfunction than previously believed. In those who binge drink, the visual areas of the brain show unusually high levels of activation. Additionally, those who binge drink have more difficulty in feeling empathy for others.
Study reports naturally occurring lithium in public drinking water may lower suicide rates. Researchers found that in geographical areas with high concentrations of lithium in drinking water, suicide rates were lower in the population.
Novel biomarkers for glioblastoma brain cancer have been identified in bodily fluids. The discovery may lead to a new, simple, non-invasive blood test to detect brain cancer in the future.
A new fruit fly study reveals a simple genetic system is behind complex movements. The finding sheds light on motor control issues associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
Drinking small amounts of alcohol, like one pint of beer or a large glass of wine, significantly impairs our feeling of being in control of our actions. A new study reveals even one beer can lead to overconfidence in driving ability and make us act in inappropriate, potentially dangerous ways. The study begs the question, are current alcohol limits for driving truly safe?
Researchers used Nash equilibrium game theory and adaptive control to program a robot that can better understand its human user's behavior. This allows the robot to anticipate and respond to the human's movements.
