Contrary to popular myths on stereotypes, women are not more emotional than men, researchers report. A new study reveals men's emotions fluctuate just as much as women's do.
A new mouse study reveals the impact of air pollution on male fertility. Researchers report air pollution reduces sperm count in mice by inducing inflammation in specific brain areas.
A new study reports human brain size decreased in size approximately 3,000 years ago, and the brain shrinkage parallels the expansion of collective intelligence in human societies.
A new study reveals how adipocytes, or fat cells, play a role in cognitive decline and increased neurodegeneration risks. Using genetically modified mouse models, researchers found oxidative stress through exposure to a Western diet increased the production of inflammatory cytokines confined to adipocytes and altered protein markers of memory and cognition in the hippocampus.
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.
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.
Some viral infections could increase intercellular spreading of protein aggregates associated with neurodegenerative disorders, increasing the risk for developing Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Study reveals microglia play an important role in the maintenance of blood delivery to the brain. The findings may prove important to the study and treatment of cognitive decline, dementia, and stroke.
Hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention are more common in male dogs and young puppies, researchers say. The findings correspond to age and gender associated with ADHD in humans.
