A new mathematical algorithm examines data from EEG and brain implants to learn each epilepsy patient's unique brain pattern signatures. The system can predict the onset of a seizure within an hour, allowing the patient to take necessary interventions.
USC researchers reveal schizophrenia may be due to a disruption in the brain's entire communication system, not just the temporal and prefrontal lobes.
People who smile following a victory can trigger an opponent to act more aggressively, a new study reports.
Combining brain scan images with machine learning, researchers identified a number of brain changes following TBI that share similarities with Alzheimer's disease. The findings add to the growing body of evidence that the two conditions follow the same trajectories.
The first round of antibody testing in L.A country reveals approximately 4.1% of the adult population has COVID-19 antibodies. Adjusting for margin of error, between 2.8% to 5.6% of the adult population has antibodies to the virus. This means between 221,000 and 442,000 adults in the Los Angeles area have been infected with coronavirus. The estimate is up to 55 times higher than confirmed cases reported for the area.
It's not only our genetics and environment that play a role in aging and longevity, it's also the random, tiny changes that arise on the cellular level.
15 newly discovered "hotspots" in the genome that either speed up or slow down brain aging could be new targets for the development of Alzheimer's medications and therapies for other brain disorders.
In as little as two years of learning, music can change the structure of the brain's white matter and boost networks implicated in decision making in children, USC researchers report.
