Researchers have discovered another purpose for the gut-brain axis; relaying information to the hippocampus to store information about our environment and location.
Researchers reveal the role hundreds of miRNAs appear to play in modulating circadian rhythm.
Researchers have identified nine risk factors during different stages in life that may increase a person's likelihood of developing dementia. At least 35% of dementia cases, researchers say, may be directly linked to these risk factors. By taking steps to reduce risks and by improving education, it is estimated that the incidence of dementia can be reduced by as much as 20%.
Study reports modifying twelve risk factors over your lifetime could reduce dementia risk by 40%.
Patients diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease are 9 times more likely to develop depression than those without IBD. Those with depression are twice as likely to develop inflammatory bowel disease, a new study reports.
Study points to the evolutionary and developmental similarities between sensory cells in the inner ear and skin.
Expectant fathers with higher levels of brain activation and oxytocin later endorsed a more "child-led" empathetic style of parenting once their child was born.
A new study reveals pericyte degeneration may influence the development of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have created new 3D maps of two melatonin receptors. The models can be used to help develop new treatments that not only improve sleep, but may also treat a variety of other conditions from diabetes to cancer.
A new computational model predicts how information deep inside the brain could flow from one network to another, and how neural network clusters can self optimize over time.
AI-controlled robotic limb driven by animal-like tendons can be tripped and recover before the next foot step, though not programmed to do so.
Researchers report that, at the molecular levels, aging may have originated at the beginning of the evolution of life. They suggest when it comes to genes, aging may not always be a negative trait, and may help an organism to survive.
