A new blood-brain barrier on a chip system is being used to study neuroinflammation, researchers report.
Researchers report deficiencies of natural cannabinoids could result in a predisposition for developing depression and PTSD. Boosting the system could help in treating stress related disorders.
Vanderbilt researchers report elderly people whose hearts pump less blood have reduced blood flow in the temporal lobe. Previous studies report the temporal lobe is a critical brain area for the development of Alzheimer's disease.
According to researchers, when shifting attention from one spot to another, the brain blinks. They report these blinks are momentary unconscious gaps in visual perception.

Vanderbilt researchers have mapped a signaling system in the brain that appears to be linked to autism.
According to researchers, Alzheimer's disease may be more prevalent in women, not simply because they live longer on average, but due to the APOE E4 gene. Researchers found the APOE association was greater for women in the Tau pathway than in men. However, there was no difference between APOE expression in the amyloid pathway in women compared to men.
Vanderbilt researchers have been awarded a new grant to develop a novel brain machine interface that utilizes both an ultrasound helmet and EEG.
