Better glucose uptake compensates for age-related motor deterioration and extends lifespan in fruitflies.
Using a snap-freezing method, researchers have been able to reveal the true structure of the connections that join neurons together in the adult brain.
Lower white blood cell count associated with HIV infection was linked to decreased volume in the hippocampus and thalamus.
Protein hyper-interleukin-6, a “designer protein” that has to be produced via genetic engineering, enabled a paralyzed mouse to walk again.
When people agree, their brains display a synchrony of activity in sensory areas. When they disagree, may other brain regions associated with cognitive function become active.
Promoting and maintaining a better gut microbial balance may help to protect against symptoms of anorexia in those with the eating disorder.
In most community settings, compared with doing nothing, mindfulness reduced stress, anxiety, depression, and increased wellbeing. However, in some cases, mindfulness may be no better than other practices to reduce anxiety and depression.
Researchers have created a robot that can learn to visually predict how its partner will behave. This could help robots get along with other robots and humans more intuitively.
NAA, a compound in the brain, plays a key role in emotional agency and flexibility in healthy people.
Adults and adolescents who use vaping products are more likely to experience problems with concentration, memory, and decision making than their peers who don’t vape or smoke. Those who began vaping before age 14 are more likely to experience “mental f…
Based on the activity in the auditory cortex and motor cortex, researchers were able to predict whether a participant was listening to music that was upbeat or sad.
Even when a person’s face is covered by a surgical mask, children can ascertain their emotions based on other facial cues.
Researchers have isolated a set of antibodies from a llama which show promise for the treatment of COVID-19. The NIH-CoVnB-112 nanoantibody bound to ACE2 receptors up to ten times stronger than other lab-produced antibodies. The nanoantibody stuck dire…
It may be harder to recognize familiar faces when they wear a surgical mask to protect against COVID-19, a new study reports. Researchers noted a 15% drop in the ability for people to recognize faces when they were masked.
B. longum APC1472 reduces blood glucose levels and reduces weight gain in mouse models. The bacteria also keep ghrelin, a hormone associated with hunger, and the stress hormone cortisol in check.
Combining machine learning with MRI brain scans helps researchers provide a more accurate map of the brain.
The living environment has a significant impact on the skin microbiota, but not gut bacteria, in both humans and dogs.
If you want to conjure a new thought in your mind, you have to force yourself to stop ruminating on old thoughts. The insight could help with the treatment of PTSD and other disorders associated with rumination.
GABA accelerates the breakdown of endocannabinoids in the brain. Endocannabinoids are critical for emotional processing. The findings could lead to the development of new treatments for emotional behavioral disorders.
Researchers have identified a novel coupling mechanism that links neural networks in the human brain.
