Study reports that age-related loss of the Y chromosome in men is linked to heart muscle scarring and an increased risk of heart failure. The findings may explain why men tend to die, on average, seven years younger than women.
Younger mothers, first time moms, and women who give birth to twins are at the highest risk of developing postpartum depression, a new study reports.
Age-related macular degeneration and lupus share a common contributor to inflammation. The findings could help researchers develop new treatments for those conditions, and other conditions associated with inflammation.
Researchers have developed a new, non-invasive method to remove dysfunctional brain circuitry and surgically treat neurological conditions. The technique, called PING, uses focused ultrasound combined with microbubbles to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and deliver neurotoxins targeted at the problematic brain area.
Fluoxetine, the antidepressant commonly known as Prozac, may be beneficial for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration. Researchers found Prozac significantly slowed the rate at which people over 50 developed AMD.
Study reveals microglia play an important role in the maintenance of blood delivery to the brain. The findings may prove important to the study and treatment of cognitive decline, dementia, and stroke.
Cholesterol produced by astrocytes in the brain is required for the production of amyloid-beta. The findings shed light on how and why amyloid-beta forms, and may explain why genes associated with cholesterol have been implicated as risk factors for Alzheimer's disease.
