Small scale study reveals Omega 3 supplements stabilized memory function in adults with Alzheimer's disease. Those who did not take omega-3 supplements showed a deterioration in memory function.
Researchers determined how the neurons and muscles are connected in a decision-making neural network important for mating in C. elegans. The team also accurately measured the weights of those connections, i.e., an estimate of the strength with which one neuron or muscle communicates with another.
Researchers look to explore which cognitive functions are most affected by cannabis use, and how long the effect of the drug can last.
Researchers have developed a computer model that provides insight into how cooling specific areas of the brain could help to treat epilepsy.
Multiple sclerosis patients are nine times more likely to discuss the use of alternative medicines, including cannabis, with their neurologists as treatment options than they were in 2001. 81% of MS patients report the use of dietary supplements to help with disease management, and 39% report participating in mindfulness and other mind-body therapies. 30% of patients reported using marijuana to help treat their symptoms.
Implanted engineered cells with fluorescent dyes which change color in response to dopamine and norepinephrine allows researchers to observe changes in neurosignalling in real time, a new study reports.
A new study reports intranasal delivery of ketamine may cause problematic side effects for some people with depression.
Short naps of up to 60 minutes in duration do not mitigate the effects of a night of sleep deprivation, a new study reports. However, the amount of slow-wave sleep achieved during a nap was related to reduced impairments associated with sleep deprivation.
Frequently, as many as one thousand signals rain down on a single neuron simultaneously. To ensure that precise signals are delivered, the brain possesses a sophisticated inhibitory system. Scientists have now illuminated how this system works.
