Key to Dialogue Between Brain Cells to Protect Against Stroke

LSU Health New Orleans research has unlocked a key fundamental mechanism in the communication between brain cells when confronted with stroke and found DHA not only protected neuronal cells and ...

How Renegade Protein Interrupts Brain Cell Function in Alzheimer's Disease

Dozens of molecules may tangle up with rogue bundles of tau, a protein that normally gives nerve fibers structure, to cause brain cell damage that contributes to neurodegenerative diseases, a new ...

Further Evidence World Trade Center Responders Are at Risk for Dementia

New studies indicate that World Trade Center (WTC) first responders are at risk for developing ...

Nerve cells have a special ion channel that has a key role in starting the electrical impulse that signals pain and is sent to the brain. New research finds that people who inherited the Neanderthal ...

Calcium Channel Subunits Play a Major Role in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Neurobiologists have found new evidence that specific calcium channel subunits play a crucial role in the development of excitatory and inhibitory ...

New Role for White Blood Cells in the Developing Brain

Whether white blood cells can be found in the brain has been controversial, and their role there a complete mystery. Scientists describe a population of specialized brain-resident immune cells ...

Mapping the Brain's Sensory Gatekeeper

Researchers have mapped the thalamic reticular nucleus in unprecedented detail, revealing that the region contains two distinct subnetworks of neurons with different functions. The findings could ...

How Neurons Reshape Inside Body Fat to Boost Its Calorie-Burning Capacity

Scientists have found that a hormone tells the brain to dramatically restructure neurons embedded in fat tissue. Their work widens our understanding of how the body regulates its energy consumption, ...

'Love Hormone' Oxytocin Could Be Used to Treat Cognitive Disorders Like Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's disease progressively degrades a person's memory and cognitive abilities, often resulting in dementia. Amid efforts to find novel treatments for this disease, a recent ...

Synapse-Saving Proteins Discovered, Opening Possibilities in Alzheimer's, Schizophrenia

Loss of synapses is a contributing factor to Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia. Researchers discovered a class of proteins that inhibit synapse elimination, opening possibilities for novel ...

Does Eating Fish Protect Our Brains from Air Pollution?

Older women who eat more than one to two servings a week of baked or broiled fish or shellfish may consume enough omega-3 fatty acids to counteract the effects of air pollution on the brain, ...

Learning the Wiring Diagram for Autism Spectrum Disorders

Researchers have identified brain circuitry that plays a key role in the dysfunctional social, repetitive, and inflexible behavioral differences that characterize autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The ...

Autism Researchers Map Brain Circuitry of Social Preference

A new study reveals how two key neural circuits dictate the choice between social approach and avoidance. The findings will enable researchers to evaluate social interventions in ...

How Our Brains Remain Active During Familiar, Repetitive Tasks

New research, based on earlier results in mice, suggests that our brains are never at rest, even when we are not learning anything about the world around ...

Long-Studied Protein Could Be a Measure of Traumatic Brain Injury

Scientists have recently demonstrated that cathepsin B, a well-studied protein important to brain development and function, can be used as biomarker, or indicator of severity, for TBI. TBI trauma ...

A Complex Gene Program Initiates Brain Changes in Response to Cocaine

Researchers used single-nucleus RNA sequencing to compare transcriptional responses to acute cocaine in 16 unique cell populations from the brain nucleus accumbens. The atlas is part of a major study ...

No Association Found Between Exposure to Mobile Devices and Brain Volume Alterations in Adolescents

A new study of 2,500 Dutch children is the first to explore the relationship between brain volume and different doses of radiofrequency electromagnetic ...
