Study shows how gut bacteria may trigger MS

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 07:00:00 PST

A new study in mice proposes how gut bacteria, an appropriate age window, and risk genes may work together to trigger multiple sclerosis.

Boosting brain's 'executive center' may prevent anxiety

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:00:00 PST

New research finds that stimulating activity in the brain's dorsolateral prefrontal cortex protects against symptoms of depression and mood disorders.

Squirrels and stroke treatment: What's the connection?

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:00:00 PST

The process by which the brains of ground squirrels are protected against low oxygen during hibernation could lead to a new treatment for ischemic stroke.

Study reveals what depression, anxiety look like in the brain

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 07:00:00 PST

MRI brain scans of people with depression and social anxiety show common and specific differences in cortical thickness, compared with healthy people.

Generous people 'listen to their hearts,' quite literally

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 00:00:00 PST

New research measures interoception, or people's ability to 'listen' to their bodies, and their willingness to give away money. The heart plays a key role.

Dementia breakthrough? Brain-training game 'significantly reduces risk'

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 10:00:00 PST

A study of more than 2,800 older adults finds that speed-of-processing training can reduce the 10-year risk of dementia by 29 percent.

What is Capgras syndrome?

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 07:00:00 PST

Capgras syndrome is a psychological condition where the person affected believes someone they know has been replaced by an imposter.

Aerobic exercise: 'A maintenance program for the brain'

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 00:00:00 PST

Researchers have found that aerobic exercise can slow down the age-related decrease in brain size and help to prevent cognitive function decline.

Nuts strengthen your brain, EEG study shows

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 09:00:00 PST

A new study used an electroencephalogram to examine the brain waves of regular nut consumers. Strong associations with cognition and immunity were found.

What are binaural beats and how do they work?

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 09:00:00 PST

Binaural beats therapy is a method of treating conditions like anxiety. Included is detail on the patterns of brainwaves affected by binaural beats.
