A new study identifies a neural network that appears to be responsible for the development of tics and tic disorders. Researchers say deep brain stimulation applied to this network helps alleviate symptoms of tics.
Researchers discovered more than 1000 genes that are substantially more active in the brains of one sex versus the other. The findings may help behavioral sex differences in mammals.
The body relies on multiple maps based on the choice of the motor system.
Study reveals a link between spoken languages and the sense of touch.
A new study reports people with depression are 2.2 times more likely to endorse misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine, and 2.7 times more likely to be vaccine-resistant. Additionally, rates of depression are three times higher than before the pande…
Cannabis use leads to cognitive impairments that extend beyond the period of intoxication.
Hippocampal neurogenesis and cognitive function were improved in aging mice by destroying senescent cells in the aging stem cell niche.
Identifying the optimal number of individual treatment sessions for those with cognitive decline associated with dementia is crucial for managing the neurodegenerative disease.
Kissing, sharing food, or any other interaction that involves saliva are signals babies and young children use to determine whether two people have a strong relationship and mutual obligation to each other.
Smiling or hiding real emotions when feeling sad or anxious may not be as maladaptive as previously believed, a new study reports.
The presence of friends increases arousal when people are exposed to scary stimuli, researchers report. Additionally, the stronger the response to the initial stimuli, the more fear response increases when exposed to subsequent scary stimuli.
The more connected people feel toward each other, the quicker they are to respond to one another in a conversation.
A novel deep convolutional neural network AI algorithm can detect COVID-19 within minutes with 98% accuracy.
Cyclodextrin, an FDA-approved drug, reduced cholesterol accumulation from broken down brain cells and inflammation in animal models. The findings point to a potential new therapy to reduce dementia following a stroke.
A newly designed compact device for recording brain activity has a customizable configuration and could help people with restricted mobility regain control of their limbs or provide advanced warnings of epileptic seizures.
In patients with ALS, astrocytes within the brain become pro-inflammatory and tend to lose their protective function, resulting in changes in the ability to uptake glutamate.
A new study considers how people acquire and utilize knowledge about causal relationships.
A newly developed blood test can measure the pace of biological aging by identifying specific DNA methylation marks.
Findings reveal the accumulation of the synaptic protein neurexin may be a cause of memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
People tend to think voice-user AI interfaces such as Siri or Alexa are more competent and emotionally engaging if they exhibit social cues.
