Researchers discover soccer players who frequently 'head' the ball have white matter abnormalities consistent with concussion and mild traumatic brain injury.
A new study describes the vascular architecture within the cerebral cortex, exploring what the structure means for neuroimaging and the onset of dementia.
According to a new study, diabetic episodes of hypoglycemia may increase the risk of developing dementia, while having dimentia could increase the risk of experiencing low blood sugar levels.
Analysing recent MRI data of adolescents who were born with low birth weight, researchers tie smaller brain volumes to poor academic achievement.
New research suggests brain circuits which control obsessive compulsive behavior are intertwined with circuits which control food intake and body weight. The findings could have implications for treating obsessive compulsive disorder.
Researchers have discovered how the Arc protein regulates neuronal activity, providing clues into the brain's ability to form long-term memories.
A new study shows that the GLT1 protein plays a critical role in the craving for cocaine which develops after only a few days of cocaine use. However, exposure to ceftriaxone, an antibiotic used to treat meningitis, decreases cocaine cravings.
When manipulated in two lines of transgenic mice, neuroligin 1, a gene linked to ASD, produced mature adults with irreversible defects which affected either learning or social interaction. The findings could have implications for potential gene therapies for autism.
Researchers uncover clues about the biochemical pathway in the brain which could expand treatment options for schizophrenia.
Researchers discover Pleurobranchaea californica, a predatory sea slug which normally isn't a picky eater, has more cognitive abilities than previously believed; allowing them to lean the warning cues of dangerous pray and avoiding them in the future.
Researchers discover hippocampal neurogenesis occurs daily in adult humans.
