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.
Researchers have identified two gene mutations associated with an increased risk of developing eating disorders.
Axon pruning becomes reactivated in neurodegenerative diseases, a new study finds.
Transplanted stem cells help build a 'biobridge' which links uninjured brain regions to those damaged as a result of TBI, a new study shows.
Using transgenic mice, researchers find a lack of autophagy in neurons prevents the secretion of amyloid beta and the formation of β-amyloid plaques in the brain.
A new study provides a glimpse into the current limitations and powerful implications of precision medicine.
A shortage of zinc may contribute to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Words which refer to 'big', abstract things are processed more quickly by the brain than 'smaller' words, a new study suggests.
