Walking exercise on a treadmill improves cognitive abilities, including learning and memory, and preserves hippocampal volume in people with relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis.
Older people who experience elevated heart rates are at increased risk for developing dementia, researchers report.
The dSlo2 channel appears to play a role in suppressing hyperactivity in the brain that causes epileptic seizures.
Microglia, a key immune cell in the brain, appears to mediate the relationship between the gut microbiome and amyloid-beta deposits in male mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease.
A drug currently being tested in cancer clinical trials appears to prevent dysfunction in an immune cell signaling pathway associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Blocking the pathway could prevent Alzheimer’s from developing and slow the progression of s…
A neuroimaging study reveals significant structural differences in the brain of fetuses exposed to alcohol. Researchers found alcohol exposed fetuses had increased volume in the corpus callosum and decreased volume in the periventricular zone of the br…
A unique subset of group 3 innate lymphoid cells spurs T cells to attack myelinated nerve fibers in mouse models of multiple sclerosis.
Amateur boxers, specifically those who boxed during their youth, are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those who didn’t.
A new study sheds light on the genetic causes of a range of neurodegenerative disorders, including ALS, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease, and determines factors that impact the age of onset as well as disease severity.
The form in which isomers take can increase the risk of developing dementia, researchers report. Drugs in development to improve autophagy may help prevents Alzheimer’s from developing.
Researchers have developed a new, non-invasive method to remove dysfunctional brain circuitry and surgically treat neurological conditions. The technique, called PING, uses focused ultrasound combined with microbubbles to penetrate the blood-brain barr…
Physical activity appears to reduce microglial activation and improve cognition in the aging human brain, researchers report.
A new framework reveals Alzheimer’s disease is far more complex than previously believed. Rather than being a disease where the same causes produce the same outcomes, researchers found three different models for the disease, each with its own character…
Findings suggest people with moderate Alzheimer’s disease perform better at daily tasks when surrounded by their usual clutter.
A class of drugs called BACE1 inhibitors, originally designed to treat Alzheimer’s disease, shows potential for the treatment of glioblastoma brain cancer.
White matter hyperintensities were more common in athletes who played more contact sports or had more head injuries and concussions during their sporting careers.
Study identifies a significant way in which a disrupted circadian clock drives inflammation in the body’s immune cells.
Switching to a diet that includes more leafy greens, including spinach and kale, reduces inflammation and oxidative stress, and improved symptoms associated with chronic migraine.
Amyloid-beta accumulation in the brain may contribute to deficits in circadian regulation of learning and memory during the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
A new brain model explored bursts of human brain activity never before studied. The bursts may serve as potential biomarkers for depression, dementia, schizophrenia, and ADHD.
