New hope in fight against aggressive and often hard to treat brain tumour

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 06:00:00 PDT

Researchers from the University of Southampton have discovered a potential way of stopping one of the most aggressive types of brain tumour from spreading, which could lead the way to better...



Nicotine has the potential to prevent brain aging, study suggests

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 00:00:00 PDT

Hormone changes during menstrual cycle alter problem-solving strategies

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 00:00:00 PDT

Research demonstrates that women's problem solving ability is not altered by hormone fluctuations, but it is handled by different parts of the brain.



"Sixth sense" may be more than just a feeling

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 09:00:00 PDT

NIH study of rare genetic disorder reveals importance of touch and body awareness.



ALS could be prevented with technique that halts protein clumping

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 08:00:00 PDT

SOD1 gene mutations form protein clumps, leading to motor neuron degeneration in ALS, but researchers may have found a way to halt this process.



TSRI study illuminates how mystery MS drug works

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:00:00 PDT

A study by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has helped to de-mystify the molecular workings of the multiple sclerosis (MS) drug Tecfidera®.



Long-term alcohol dependence affects cognitive abilities

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 00:00:00 PDT

New evidence shows that long-term alcohol dependence can significantly disrupt a range of specific cognitive abilities, particularly as we age.

Vitamin D levels in pregnant women could be linked to some learning disabilities in children

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 05:00:00 PDT

Learning disabilities are more common in children who were conceived between January and March - the time of year when there is insufficient sunlight to produce vitamin D - according to a new study...



Brain's hippocampus helps fill in the blanks

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 05:00:00 PDT

A new study shows that when you finish your spouse's sentences or answer a fill-in-the-blank question, you're engaging the brain's relay station for memories, the hippocampus.



A common genetic variant regulates the mental health benefits of exercise

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 05:00:00 PDT

A new study revealed that a common genetic variant in the brain-derived neurotrophic factor gene reduces the neurobiological benefits induced by physical exercise in mice.
