Consciousness 'restored' using nerve stimulation

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 09:00:00 PDT

One month after a vagus nerve stimulator was implanted in his chest, a patient who had spent 15 years in a vegetative state showed signs of consciousness.

Marijuana and 'spice' could trigger seizures, study says

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 02:00:00 PDT

High-potency natural and synthetic cannabinoids were found to trigger seizures in mice, say researchers, with the latter posing the strongest effects.

Too much manganese may lower children's IQ

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

A study suggests that excessive air exposure to manganese may have negative neurodevelopmental effects; high levels of the metal correlate with lower IQ.

Depression: Is brain inflammation tied to suicidal thoughts?

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

A new study indicates that suicidal thoughts are associated with brain inflammation in the case of people diagnosed with major depression.

High fluoride levels in pregnancy may lower offspring IQ

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 02:00:00 PDT

Women who have higher levels of fluoride in their urine during pregnancy may be more likely to have children with lower intelligence, a new study reports.

Blocking the 'love hormone' may reduce social anxiety

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Oxytocin may intensify positive or negative social experiences by affecting different brain areas. Blocking the hormone may relieve social anxiety.

OCD: Cognitive behavioral therapy improves brain connectivity

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

A new study maps brain changes following cognitive behavioral therapy for OCD. The findings suggest improved connectivity between key networks.

Alzheimer's disease: When does personality start to change?

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 09:00:00 PDT

A new study examines whether the personality of those affected by dementia or mild cognitive impairment starts to change before the onset of the disease.

Teenage concussion linked to later risk of MS

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 08:00:00 PDT

Concussion during adolescence may increase the risk of developing multiple sclerosis in later life, possibly by prompting an abnormal immune response.

Pulsatile tinnitus: Causes, symptoms, and treatment

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 07:00:00 PDT

Tinnitus is where a person hears sounds within the ear, such as ringing. Pulsatile tinnitus is when the sounds are in time to the beat of their pulse.

Multiple sclerosis: Novel gene immunotherapy could prevent, reverse disease

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Using a new gene immunotherapy technique, researchers have reversed clinical symptoms of multiple sclerosis in mice, including paralysis.

Too much or too little magnesium can raise dementia risk

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 09:00:00 PDT

A recently published study investigates the link between both high and low magnesium serum levels and the risk of developing dementia.

Thirst: Our brains tell us when to stop drinking

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Our bodies keep a tight check on our water levels to stop us from dehydrating. But how do we know when we are thirsty and when we have drunk enough?

Alzheimer's: Targeting ApoE gene may 'stop the disease'

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 10:00:00 PDT

The ApoE gene may have a more influential role than first thought; it may amplify the damage done by the tau protein, causing neurodegeneration.

Immune markers may predict multiple sclerosis severity

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Two related cytokines may signal which individuals will progress to the severe form of MS more rapidly. The finding could aid drug research.

Drug may reduce desire for alcohol, especially in the evening

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 07:00:00 PDT

New research in mice shows that blocking a receptor in the brain's immune system substantially reduces the desire to consume alcohol, especially at night.

Linking depression, insomnia, and the brain's reward center

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Increased activity in a brain region involved in reward and motivation appears to reduce the risk of sleep-related depressive symptoms.

How binge drinking alters brain activity

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

For the first time, researchers measure binge drinking-related changes in brain activity during rest. They mirror those seen in chronic alcoholics' brains.

Headache on the left side: Symptoms, causes, and treatment

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 07:00:00 PDT

In this article, we look at the causes of headaches on the left side, including underlying conditions, symptoms, treatments, and when to see a doctor.

Multiple sclerosis: Vitamin D deficiency may predict onset

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

A large-scale study suggests that vitamin D levels may predict MS risk in young and middle-aged women. Correcting this deficiency may lower that risk.

Concussion in teenagers increases the risk of MS in later life

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Concussion in teenagers increases the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) in later life. However, there is no association with MS for concussion in younger children.

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:00:00 PDT

The programme controls how and when brain genes are expressed at different times in a person's life to perform a range of functions, the study found.

Could this protein explain why drinking can be so pleasurable?

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 08:00:00 PDT
