Study of protein 'trafficker' provides insight into autism and other brain disorders
In the brain, as in business, connections are everything. To maintain cellular associates, the outer surface of a neuron, its membrane, must express particular proteins —proverbial hands that reach out and greet nearby cells.
Stress on worms could give insight into early human brain development
Worms and humans might have more in common neurologically than researchers ever thought, particularly when it comes to stress.
New cause of chronic stress identified in brain
In an international collaboration between MedUni Vienna, Semmelweis University in Budapest, the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm and Yale University, researchers have identified a new process in the brain that is responsible for the delayed stress response and the long-term effects of stress: With a delay of 10 minutes after the ‘danger’, the area of the brain that reacts to stress and responsible for further action is activated via the cerebral fluid.
Researchers decode mood from human brain signals
By developing a novel decoding technology, a team of engineers and physicians at the University of Southern California (USC) and UC San Francisco have discovered how mood variations can be decoded from neural signals in the human brain--a process that has not been demonstrated to date.
Being braver might be down to stimulating one part of brain
J.R.R. Tolkien, creator of brave hobbits Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee, writes that ‘courage is found in unlikely places’.
Scientists develop fast cheap method for growing 'brains-in-a-dish'
Researchers from the University of California San Diego have developed a fast and low-cost method of creating human cortical organoids directly from primary cells. This new protocol will allow the researchers to better understand how our own brains work.
Scientists shed light on one of biggest mysteries behind brain inflammation
A recent study is clarifying the interactions between cannabinoid receptors and immune cells in the brain. The work brings new understanding regarding inflammation and loss of brain cells.
Mysterious new type of cell could help reveal what makes human brain special
A new type of brain cell has been discovered by scientists.
Pay attention to 'noise' in your brain
Take a look at your favorite mug; it probably looks the same as it always has, but your neurons may not think so. Neurons are firing in response to the visual stimuli they see but they don't fire in exactly the same way every time.
Researchers developing unique identifier for brain
Michaela Cordova, a research associate and lab manager at Oregon Health and Science University, began by ‘de-metaling’: Removing rings, watches, gadgets and other sources of metal, double-checking her pockets for overlooked objects that could, in her words, ‘fly in’. Then she entered the scanning room, raised and lowered the bed, and waved a head coil in the general direction of the viewing window and the iPad camera that’s enabling this virtual lab tour (I’m watching from thousands of miles away in Massachusetts).
Brain's magnetic particles mapped by German scientists
For the first time, scientists have mapped the magnetic particles in the human brain.
Smoking rots young brains
The adverse impact of nicotine on health is common knowledge. A 21-year study by the University of Indonesia’s Social Security Research Center (PKJS-UI) made public in June only confirms it and reminds the government yet again to take radical action, thejakartapost.com wrote.
Cardiac arrest resuscitation drug has needlessly brain-damaged thousands
The main drug used to resuscitate cardiac arrest victims has needlessly left thousands of people with brain damage, according to a major new trial.
Brain iron levels may predict multiple sclerosis disabilities
A new, highly accurate MRI technique can monitor iron levels in the brains of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and help identify those at a higher risk for developing physical disability, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.
Brain may clean out Alzheimer’s plaques during sleep
Neuroscientist Barbara Bendlin studies the brain as Alzheimer’s disease develops. When she goes home, she tries to leave her work in the lab. But one recent research project has crossed into her personal life: She now takes sleep much more seriously.
