Neuroimaging study ties the degradation of circuitry in one area of the brain to reduced efficiency of executive function in older adults.
Scene selective cortical regions are more sensitive to age than face-selective regions when it comes to memory and perception.
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 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.
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.

A new study reports listening to subjective complaints about memory lapses in people over 60 could help doctors to diagnose the onset of MCI and dementia.
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.
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.
Children whose families have a lower socioeconomic status have significantly smaller vocabularies than their more affluent peers, a new study reports.
