Artificial intelligence technology was able to identify specific brain regions which were most important for predicting whether a person with depression would respond to SSRI antidepressants.
Researchers have identified significant differences in gene activity between the anterior and posterior areas of the hippocampus. Genes associated with depression and other mood disorders are more active in the anterior hippocampus, while genes linked to cognitive disorders, such as ASD, are more active in the posterior hippocampus.
Researchers report the most effective way to reduce internal, visceral fat is to exercise.
Decreasing the amount of Reelin significantly protected against disease symptoms and promoted recovery in symptomatic animal models of multiple sclerosis. Reelin levels appear to correlate with MS severity and stages. Researchers report lowering levels of the protein could be a potential avenue of treatment for the autoimmune disorder.
Eating late, or at inappropriate times might have a significant impact on both weight and normal sleep-wake patterns, a new study published in Cell Metabolism reports.
UT Southwestern researchers discover a gene implicated in circadian rhythm may also play a vital role in regulating genes important for our brain evolution.
Study reports a link between levels of GlycA, an inflammatory molecule in the blood, and an increased risk of depression symptoms. Researchers also outline specific symptoms associated with menopause and an increased likelihood of developing depression.
Following a one year program of aerobic exercise improves memory function and boosts blood flow to brain areas critical for cognition in older adults with risk factors for dementia.
A new Science study sheds light on how the gut microbiota interacts with circadian rhythm to impact metabolism. Researchers say the finding could help explain why those who work night shifts have higher rates of metabolic diseases.
A detailed 3D structure of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors could help pave the way to developing new treatments for nicotine addiction, researchers report.
