Researchers analyze the atomic structure of two types of human serotonin receptors. Their findings could explain why some drugs, which interact with these receptors, occasionally have harmful effects.
Infants at 7 months of age who go on to develop autism are slower to reorient their gaze and attention from one object to another when compared to 7-month-olds who do not develop autism, and this behavioral pattern is in part explained by atypical brain circuits.
A new study finds increased amyloid levels in the brains of unmedicated hypertensive adults with a genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease.
"If in doubt, sit it out" researchers recommend for athletes with suspected concussions in a new concussion guideline update from the AAN.
Neurons in the specific brain area responsible for processing faces are too broadly "tuned" in some patients with autism, leading to difficulties in discriminating between the facial features of different individuals, a new study suggests.
Preterm infants with low-grade periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage (PIVH) brain bleeding could have similar long term neurodevelopmental outcomes as babies with no bleeding, researchers suggest.
Researchers discovered cocaine causes cells within the nucleus accumbens to boost the production of two specific proteins linked to addition and learning. Understanding addiction on a molecular level could lead to future developments for new treatments.
Researchers transplanted neural cells, derived from adult skin cells, into monkeys; where they developed into several different types of brain cells. The research could eventually help provide new treatment avenues for patients with a wide range of neurological diseases.
Researchers discover reducing cognitive control can boost performance when completing creative tasks.
