Using the nerve cells of sea snails, researchers reverse memory loss by determining when cells were primed for learning. Retraining cells with the use of an optimized training schedule helped compensate for memory loss.
New research suggests children with ASD spend more time playing video games and watching TV than participating in social media and pre-social activities compared to their typically developing peers.
Researchers conclude that poor quality information is to blame for bad decision making, not faults with neural processing.
Researchers discover a role for long noncoding RNA in brain development and neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study supports p38α MAPK as a possible clinical target for treating central nervous system disorders associated with uncontrolled brain inflammation, including TBI.
A new brain tissue study has shown gene expression in bipolar patients treated with antipsychotic medications is similar to the expression in subjects with no history of bipolar disorder.
As Alzheimer's disease progresses, microglial cells lose two important biological functions affecting their ability to remove cell fragments and motility towards acute lesions.
Researchers implant optogenetic electronic device into mouse brains, stimulating dopamine producing neurons by emitting light.
Years of mouse research lead to discovery of how autophagy keeps neural stem cells ready to replace damaged brain and nerve cells.
Researchers implanted pacemaker electrodes into the medial forebrain bundle of patients suffering from major depression and performed deep brain stimulation. In a matter of days, in six out of seven patients, symptoms such as anxiety, despondence, listlessness and joylessness had improved considerably.
Researchers discover a population of cells, called tanycytes, are capable of generating new appetite regulating neurons in the brains of both young and adult rodents. The discovery could offer new avenues for tackling obesity.
