Researchers have developed smart sleepwear, embedded with self-powered sensors, which monitor heart rate, sleep posture and breathing. The technology will provide useful information to researchers, as well as the general public, to help improve sleep patterns.
Both the default mode network and salience network in superagers had stronger connectivity than typical older adults and similar connectivity as younger adults. Superagers performed similarly to young adults and better than typical older adults in recognition and episodic memory tasks.
Researchers have secured NIH funding for the development of a new neuroimaging system.
Transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation helps improve sleep patterns and mental health in aging people. The therapy works by increasing parasympathetic activity and decreasing sympathetic activity.
According to researchers, a simple MRI brain scan could help diagnose people with a common cognitive disorder.
A new neuroimaging study reports people born with one hand, who are able to use both limbs in a two handed task, show brain activity similar to that of people with two hands.
A new 3-D printed biomaterial is able to mimic the properties of living brain tissue. The new material could be used to enhance regenerative medicine therapies.
Discovery could pave the way for new treatments for chronic pain in humans, researchers report.
A study that used postmortem brain tissue samples from Alzheimer's patients and mouse models found the hunger hormone ghrelin is linked to cognitive impairments and memory loss associated with the disease.
Natural killer cells may play a critical role in regulating and restraining neuroinflammation and protein clumping associated with Parkinson's disease.
