A study that used postmortem brain tissue samples from Alzheimer's patients and mouse models found the hunger hormone ghrelin is linked to cognitive impairments and memory loss associated with the disease.
Scene selective cortical regions are more sensitive to age than face-selective regions when it comes to memory and perception.
Researchers report the amygdala may play a bigger role in facial recognition than previously thought. According to a new study, the amygdala responds more specifically to images of the face than the fusiform face area does.
Parents who communicate with their infants help improve language skills and later abilities. Researchers say parents can make a significant difference in language development, even in children with an ASD diagnosis.
A new study may provide key insights into the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report people with higher levels of amyloid beta showed less activity in brain areas associated with working memory when engaged in cognitively demanding tasks.
Neuroimaging study ties the degradation of circuitry in one area of the brain to reduced efficiency of executive function in older adults.
A new study reports the ability to modulate brain activity when it comes to shutting off processes irrelevant to a task may be compromised in older people.
A new study confirms those on the autism spectrum are hypersensitive to pain. The new study from UT Dallas researchers also demonstrated people with ASD showed greater neural responses in the anterior cingulate cortex than those not on the spectrum when anticipating a painful stimuli.
CGRP, a protein associated with migraine pain, appears to act differently between sexes. Researchers say a female-specific mechanism of downstream CGRP receptor activation is likely to contribute to the higher prevalence of migraine in women.
Children whose families have a lower socioeconomic status have significantly smaller vocabularies than their more affluent peers, a new study reports.
