A convolutional neural network algorithm is able to process an entire whole brain slice slide with 98.7% accuracy. The technology could help speed up the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have developed a new method to induce visual hallucinations in healthy people. The study could help to develop new treatments to control hallucinations in people with Parkinson's and other disorders.
Parkinson's disease can be divided into two variants that start in different places in the body. For some, the neurodegenerative disease starts in the intestines and spreads to the brain. In others, the disease begins in the brain and spreads to the intestines and other organs.
Brain organoids can be used to study molecular mechanisms that drive brain aging and neurodegenerative disorders. The mini-brains allow for the testing of molecules that could become potential therapeutic treatment options for neurodegenerative diseases.

Researchers have developed a new prosthetic hand with the ability to 'see' objects. They believe their invention can allow the wearer to automatically reach for objects.
Researchers have created a detailed taxonomy of cells in the mouse visual cortex based on single-cell gene expression.
Adora2a mediating signaling in vascular endothelial cells disrupts the blood-brain barrier in obesity. This, researchers report, could be an underlying mechanism for synaptic plasticity and cognitive deficits in those with insulin resistance and obesity.
