Adults who experienced traumatic events, including abuse and household dysfunction, as children had an increased risk of developing neurological conditions later in life. Additionally, researchers found a significant link between childhood trauma and depression and anxiety in adulthood.
Preliminary new findings are raising concerns about the long-term effect of mild COVID-19 infection on neurological health and cognition.
Neurovascular dysfunction may explain the link between migraines, hot flashes during menopause, and increased risk of heart disease in women. Researchers found a history of migraines predicted an increase in hot flashes during menopause transition.
Researchers highlight some of the current strategies being pursued to help restore lost function and regenerate brain areas affected by Parkinson's disease.
Drugs that increase signaling of Sonic Hedgehog (Shh) can help suppress the involuntary movements associated with dopamine replacement therapy for those with Parkinson's disease.
Two new intranasal drugs slow inflammation and stop the spread of alpha-synuclein in mouse models of Parkinson's disease. The drug also improved gait and balance in the animals. If the results are able to be replicated in humans, researchers say the drugs could be hailed as a "remarkable advance" in the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
Study reveals a direct link between adherence to the Mediterranean diet and improved cognitive function.
Higher glucose levels detected by a two-hour glucose test were an accurate predictor of poorer performance in tests of episodic memory ten years later.
Cellular reprogramming of glioma cells into neural cells may be a promising treatment for glioblastoma brain cancer.
A new algorithm uses neuroimaging data of amyloid levels in the brain and takes into account a person's age to determine when a person with genetic Alzheimer's risk factors, and with no signs of cognitive decline, will develop the disease.
