Researchers have identified a new neurodegenerative disease that is caused by a genetic mutation that disrupts DNA repair.
Sleep continuity, in addition to sleep quality, can determine how a person with dementia will experience their symptoms the next day.
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.
Scientists are calling for greater support for neuroscience research in Africa. With the world's largest genetic diversity, researchers say Africa is vital to help progress neuroscience and brain disease research.
A new study reveals the role the hippocampus plays in language acquisition.
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.
