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.
Researchers report the most effective way to reduce internal, visceral fat is to exercise.
Study identified 300 "hub genes" that appear to control separate gene networks in brain tissue samples. The SAMD3 gene appears to be a master regulator to control the activity of many of the gene hubs and the genes the hubs control.

Using machine learning to analyze blood samples, researchers have identified a group of new biomarkers that could lead to early diagnosis of autism.
A new study reveals mice with higher levels of BMAL1 in their muscles were able to recover from sleep deprivation more quickly than those with the protein removed.
Researchers report single tau proteins have different shapes, and the folds of the molecules could help doctors to predict which type of dementia a person is likely to suffer from.
Combining neuroimaging and artificial intelligence, researchers identified novel brain signatures unique to the response of each antidepressant.
Researchers have made a surprise discovery that could help provide treatment options for a range of conditions from Parkinson's disease to depression. Researching how to transform supportive brain cells into neurons, the scientists unexpectedly transformed mature inhibitory striatal neurons into dopamine producing neurons.
A neurotoxin found in snake venom allowed researchers to uncover a detailed shape of nicotinic receptors involved in muscle contractions.
A new study may help shed light on the diversity of dementias linked to tau protein aggregation.
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.
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.
