A neuroimaging study finds profound brain activity abnormalities in a group of retired NFL players.
Using neurons created from iPS cells derived from people with ALS, researchers develop a new drug which appears to halt the impact of the genetic mutations in some forms of ALS and dementia.
Mouse whisker research reveals a signaling pathway which relays touch signals to the brain.
Researchers collect the first solid evidence that the pattern of brain activity seen when someone performs mathematical exercises under controlled conditions is similar to those seen when a person engages in quantitative thought in the course of their daily lives.
The "hunger hormone" ghrelin, when released during chronic stress, makes the brain more vulnerable to traumatic events. Researchers suggest this could predispose people to PTSD.
Researchers isolated a protein which is increased during indurance exercise and gave it to non-exercising mice. The protein turned on genes which promote brain health and encouage new neurons to grow.
A gene mutation which causes Lesch-Nyhan syndrome could provide clues to the developmental and neurological defects noted in other neurodegenerative diseases.
The loss of fat metabolizing protein PPARalpha in the hippocampus can lead to dementia, a new study finds.
A new study offers a promising discovery for the treatment and prevention of prion disease.
