For those with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and other risk factors for Alzheimer's disease, participating in aerobic exercise several times a week may slow neurodegeneration. Aerobic exercise reduced hippocampal atrophy in those with MCI.
Combining neuroimaging and artificial intelligence, researchers identified novel brain signatures unique to the response of each antidepressant.

Using machine learning to analyze blood samples, researchers have identified a group of new biomarkers that could lead to early diagnosis of autism.
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.
UT Southwestern researchers discover a gene implicated in circadian rhythm may also play a vital role in regulating genes important for our brain evolution.
A neurotoxin found in snake venom allowed researchers to uncover a detailed shape of nicotinic receptors involved in muscle contractions.
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.
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.
A detailed 3D structure of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors could help pave the way to developing new treatments for nicotine addiction, researchers report.
Researchers report a new DNA vaccine prompts an immune response to proteins associated with Alzheimer's disease.
According to a Cell Reports study, mice with abnormal eating schedules are more likely to develop skin cancer cells. Researchers report abnormal eating times disrupt the skin's circadian cycle and weakens the potency of an enzyme that protects against UV rays.
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.
