For children, emotional facial expressions could reveal whether they had a good night's sleep. Researchers found emotional expressivity following sleep restrictions could also forecast later life social problems.
A new study expands the understanding of how brain cells communicate. Researchers discovered reversing the modification of molecular messages at the synapse may contribute to reversible psychiatric disorders and early-stage neurodegenerative diseases.
Scanning the brains of sleeping toddlers, researchers found the hippocampus is activated as memories for new words are formed. The findings suggest the hippocampus plays an important role in the formation of new word memories.
Fenofibrate, an FDA-approved drug commonly used to treat high cholesterol, activated support cells around sensory neurons in mouse models of spinal cord injury, helping them regrow twice as fast as a placebo.
Researchers examine the neuroscience behind why we make certain decisions when faced with multiple choices.
Researchers created a form of artificial vision for a blind woman with the aid of a brain implant position in the visual cortex. The results pave the way for the creation of visual brain prosthetics to help the blind to regain sight.
Genetic risk for mental health disorders is associated with brain structure and the occurrence of psychosis-like experiences in children between 9 and 10 years of age.
