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.
Patients who experienced cognitive impairments, or brain fog, following COVID-19 infection had abnormalities in their cerebrospinal fluid. Researchers say the overstimulation of the immune system as a result of COVID may be the cause of cognitive defic…
Researchers report children with speech-language disorders or developmental language disorders have greater difficulty in regulating their emotions. The study also found the way in which parents manage their emotions has an impact on a child’s ability …
Changes in the strength of circadian rhythms, the average amount of activity during nighttime rest, and the amount of fragmented sleep a woman experienced during the later stages of pregnancy or following birth were strongly associated with increased r…
Stress can be a precursor to other mental health disorders including depression and anxiety, as well as a factor for premature aging. Researchers discuss stress management techniques that can build resilience to stressors and could help protect against…
Optogentic stimulation has the potential to cultivate resilience to epileptic seizures in animal models, researchers report.
