SIRT1 was again found to be important in learning and memory for mice, but boosting SIRT1 above the normal levels of expression did not lead to an improvement in learning and memory.
Researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute have discovered a new molecular clue about the cause of brain cell death in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases.
Reading P300 brain waves of people concealing information allows researchers to reliably predict the concealed information.
Research scientists from UC Davis and the University of Auckland have discovered that neuroglobin might be key to preventing Alzheimer's disease. Neuroglobin can prevent apoptosis in response to nautral stress.
A new study from researchers at UCLA indicates that new memories with emotional content can be formed even if the amygdala is damaged. Researchers believe that other areas compensated for the damaged amygdala, and aided learning and memory.
A large risk genetic marker of schizophrenia has been discovered by scientists. The researchers found that a specific deletion at 3q29, which contains two genes already known to be associated with intellectual disabilities , PAK2 and DLG1, increased the odds of schizophrenia symptoms by nearly 17 times those with no deletion.
Researchers have developed a camera system that mimics the bee eye. The artificial bee eyes allow the researchers to take images that are believed to be similar to the bee's viewpoint.
Grid cells have been found in the presubiculum and parasubiculum of the rat brain.
UC Irvine researchers have identified the perforant path in humans with the diffusion tensor imaging technique.
