Researchers have discovered a potential new way to reduce levels of hydrogen sulfide in rats’ brains. Decreasing H2S levels decreases the damage the toxic gas can cause, and ultimately may pave the way for the development of new treatments for dementia…
A shared set of brain regions play a vital role in the retrieval of weak memories.
Study links anhedonia, or the loss of pleasure, to the early onset of frontotemporal dementia. Neuroimaging revealed symptoms of anhedonia were marked by atrophy in the frontal and striatal brain areas of those with FTD.
An increase in bad gum bacteria and a decrease in good bacteria is associated with amyloid-beta in cerebral spinal fluid samples of older adults. The findings add to the growing body of evidence linking periodontal disease to the development of Alzheim…
People with sleep apnea who were exposed to positive airway pressure therapy had a reduced risk of being diagnosed with dementia.
Researchers have identified specific anti-bodies that can have a neutralizing effect on the virus responsible for tick-borne encephalitis. Preliminary response in using the anti-bodies in mice has proven affected in preventing TBE. It is hoped a vaccin…
A number of videos have surfaced on popular channels showing people experiencing some adverse effects following the coronavirus vaccine. Researchers say some of the cases could be related to functional neurological disorder, a common neuropsychological…
A newly developed play therapy platform is helping older adults with dementia improve a range of flagging cognitive skills from concentration to memory.
Study reveals aluminum is co-located with the tau protein in people with familial Alzheimer’s disease.
Genetics may help explain why women are at higher risk for developing chronic pain disorders than men. The study also sheds light on the role the central nervous system plays in the development of chronic pain.
Mutations in the autism-related Dyrk1a gene lead to brain undergrowth in mice. Researchers say an existing drug appears to reverse the damage.
Researchers link the inflammation associated with chronic sinus infections to alterations in brain activity in networks that govern cognition, external stimuli, and introspection. The findings shed light on why people suffering from sinus infections of…
Cognitive symptoms such as problems with memory and executive function, but not mood or motor disorders, were associated with CTE pathology. The findings advance the ability to diagnose CTE in living people. Until now, post mortem analysis was the only…
A newly developed reparative hydrogel, which researchers are dubbing “brain glue”, protects against loss of brain tissue following a TBI and can aid in functional neural repair.
miRNA29 is a key cellular switch in controlling late-stage brain development. Deleting miRNA29 in mice resulted in problems associated with a range of neurodevelopmental problems, including autism and epilepsy.
Findings reveal female patients were perceived to be in less pain than males who reported and exhibited the same level of pain intensity.
Combining artificial intelligence technology with brain scan data, researchers have identified three novel subtypes of multiple sclerosis.
Dopamine neurons largely rely on their own discharge to determine release rates of the hormone, researchers report.
Specific and identifiable neural pathways are altered with particular functions during the different progressive stages of Parkinson’s disease.
A new map of the basal ganglia provides a blueprint of the structure of the brain region and reveals a new level of influence connected to this area.
