Riluzole, a drug commonly prescribed to slow the progression of ALS, appears to slow brain metabolic decline and improve cognitive performance in those with mild Alzheimer’s disease.
Findings reveal how individual neurons in the thalamus can merge signals coming from different regions of the cortex. The findings could lead to new treatment options for schizophrenia, epilepsy, and other brain disorders where thalamus dysfunction is …
A diet that consists of at least half a serving of flavonoid-rich foods per day reduces the risk of cognitive decline in older adults by 20%.
Farnesol, a naturally occurring compound found in berries and other fruits, prevents the loss of dopamine-producing neurons and reverses Parkinson’s associated damage to the brain in mouse models.
Two newly developed tests, one which analyzes ***** samples and a simple blood test, can detect the presence of glioma brain cancer.
Higher body fat leads to increased atrophy of the brain’s gray matter and a greater risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
Researchers recreated the damage seen in frontotemporal dementia in brain organoid models. The study reveals an experimental drug designed to treat Crohn’s disease may help prevent neuron death associated with FTD.
Aerobic exercise was associated with positive white matter changes in the brain for older adults.
Previous studies have linked air pollution to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease and a number of other disorders. Researchers report reducing air pollution significantly decreases dementia risk and slows cognitive decline in older women.
Reducing sensitivity to physical pain resulted in a reduction of pain empathy toward others, a study found. The results suggest a possible neurobiological link between pain and empathy.
