A new deep learning algorithm may help children affected by abuse to disclose information about their experiences.
Vascular cell loss results in neuron loss, researchers report. However, pericytes secrete a substance that helps protect neurons, even when vascular cell degeneration begins to occur.
Recent studies have linked air pollution to increased risks for Alzheimer's disease and other health problems. A new study reports a reduction of atmospheric fine particulates and better air quality can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Researchers report a cognitive test can help detect Alzheimer's in older people who express no symptoms of the disease.
Researchers report people who drink at least one cup of coffee a day are at a 12% reduced risk of dying from cancer, stroke and heart disease as those who did not partake in a daily cup of Joe. Lower mortality rates were present regardless of whether people drank fully caffeinated coffee or decaf, suggesting the association with longevity is not tied to caffeine.
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.
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.
Older women exposed to higher levels of air pollution were more likely to experience greater memory decline and Alzheimer's-like brain atrophy compared with those exposed to cleaner air.
Older adults who experienced financial exploitation showed differences in brain activity in areas associated with social judgment and decision making. Additionally, those who are exploited financially tend to be physically frailer than their peers, with particular deficits in vision and hearing.
