A new study reveals the effects of a night binge drinking may last a little longer than we think. Researchers report cognitive impairments, memory deficits and problems with psychomotor skills are still present the day after, when there is little to no alcohol left in the blood stream.
Researchers say a new retinal imaging test could be a reliable tool for measuring the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's. The study reports the tool can detect drusen, which is often higher in those with AD.
Mice lacking the autism-associated SHANK3 gene were more sensitive to sensation, including touch. The mice also had overactive excitatory neurons in the somatosensory cortex, which may account for sensory hypersensitivity.
A new study reveals why most people prefer to cradle a baby on the left side.
Researchers investigate why two people who experience the same event often have different memories of what occurred.
Unexpected uncertainty is a motivator for change that prompts us to change our decisions and behaviors, even when changing the decision does not provide a better outcome.
Prediction errors play a role in the context of dynamic perceptual events that take place within fractions of a second. Findings support the hypothesis that visual perception occurs as a result of a decision process.
Inducing gamma oscillations with visual stimulation via a process known as gamma entrainment using sensory stimuli, or GENUS, was shown to reduce amyloid plaques and phosphorylated tau in mouse models of dementia. Providing GENUS daily during the early stages of neurodegeneration helps preserve neural and synaptic density across multiple brain areas and improves cognitive performance for learning and spatial memory tasks.
