Researchers are using big data and artificial intelligence to map neural networks in the brain. The new technology could help to better understand the progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
A new article looks at the limitations of parental rights in the medical system when it comes to making decisions for some children with brain injuries.
Decreased blood flow and blood oxygen levels to the hippocampus may explain symptoms of memory loss associated with Alzheimer's. Researchers say increasing hippocampal blood flow could reverse or protect against symptoms of the neurodegenerative disorder.
Mice that carry a gene associated with red hair have reduced production of dopamine in the substantia nigra and are more susceptible to toxins that can damage these dopaminergic neurons.
A new study may provide key insights into the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report people with higher levels of amyloid beta showed less activity in brain areas associated with working memory when engaged in cognitively demanding tasks.
Researchers attempt to identify which macrophage receptors promote neural repair and which are directed to the destructive process following spinal cord injury.
Former NFL players who started playing tackle football before the age of 12 have greater risk for altered brain development than those players who started later, a new study reports.
Until recently, the production of pluripotent “multipurpose” stem cells from skin cells was considered to be the ultimate new development....
