Pregnant moms and their offspring should limit added sugars in their diets to protect childhood cognition

Thu, 19 Apr 18 00:08:50 -0700

A new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine has determined that poorer childhood cognition occurred, particularly in memory and learning, when pregnant women or their offspring consumed greater quantities of sugar. Substituting diet soda for sugar-sweetened versions during pregnancy also appeared to have negative effects. However, children's fruit consumption had beneficial effects and was associated with higher cognitive scores.

Research reveals stronger people have healthier brains

Thu, 19 Apr 18 00:06:40 -0700

A study of nearly half a million people has revealed that muscular strength, measured by handgrip, is an indication of how healthy our brains are. The study, published in Schizophrenia Bulletin, also showed that maximal handgrip was strongly correlated with both visual memory and reaction time in over one thousand people with psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia.

Mayo Clinic study finds no evidence that anesthesia in young children lowers intelligence

Wed, 18 Apr 18 00:10:40 -0700

A Mayo Clinic study finds no evidence that children given anesthesia before their third birthdays have lower IQs than those who did not have it. A more complex picture emerges among people who had anesthesia several times as small children: Although their intelligence is comparable, they score modestly lower on tests measuring fine motor skills, and their parents are more likely to report behavioral and learning problems. The findings are published in Anesthesiology.

Your immune system holds the line against repeat invaders, thanks to this molecule

Tue, 17 Apr 18 00:07:20 -0700

his new insight may allow researchers to design drugs that improve immune responses to vaccines.

Boosting T cell 'memory' may result in longer-lasting and effective responses for patients

Mon, 16 Apr 18 00:03:10 -0700

Just like people, some T cells have excellent memories. These subtypes known as memory T cells may explain why some immunotherapies are more effective than others and potentially lead to researchers designing more effective studies using combination checkpoint blockade treatments, according to experts at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

In animal studies, stimulating a brain pathway reduces depressive behavior

Mon, 16 Apr 18 00:09:20 -0700

Neurobiology researchers have identified a pathway in brain circuitry that, when stimulated, leads to 'antidepressive' behavior in animals. If such brain stimulation proves to have similar effects in people, it may eventually lead to a novel treatment for depression.

Two is better than one to improve brain function in Alzheimer's disease mouse model

Mon, 16 Apr 18 00:12:40 -0700

Using two complementary approaches to reduce the deposits of amyloid-beta in the brain rather than either approach alone improved spatial navigation and memory in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease.

The memory part of the brain may also hold clues for anxiety and depression

Fri, 13 Apr 18 00:15:30 -0700

New research finds that the hippocampus may yield important clues for a range of mental health illnesses including addition, anxiety and depression.

UNH researchers find combination for small data storage and tinier computers

Thu, 12 Apr 18 00:12:00 -0700

It may sound like a futuristic device out of a spy novel, a computer the size of a pinhead, but according to new research from the University of New Hampshire, it might be a reality sooner than once thought. Researchers have discovered that using an easily made combination of materials might be the way to offer a more stable environment for smaller and safer data storage, ultimately leading to miniature computers.

Sitting is bad for your brain -- not just your metabolism or heart

Thu, 12 Apr 18 00:00:40 -0700

Studies show that too much sitting, like smoking, increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes and premature death. Researchers at UCLA found sedentary behavior is linked to thinning in regions of the brain that are critical to memory formation.

Prototype of most advanced quantum memory presented by two Kazan universities

Wed, 11 Apr 18 00:04:40 -0700

In this paper we experimentally demonstrated a broadband scheme of the multiresonator quantum memory-interface. The microwave photonic scheme consists of the system of mini-resonators strongly interacting with a common broadband resonator coupled with the external waveguide. We have implemented the impedance matched quantum storage in this scheme via controllable tuning of the mini-resonator frequencies and coupling of the common resonator with the external waveguide.

An immunological memory in the brain

Wed, 11 Apr 18 00:10:10 -0700

Inflammatory reactions can change the brain's immune cells in the long term -- meaning that these cells have an 'immunological memory.' This memory may influence the progression of neurological disorders that occur later in life, and is therefore a previously unknown factor that could influence the severity of these diseases. Scientists at the DZNE, the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, and the University of Tuebingen report on this in the journal Nature.

Does age at menopause affect memory?

Wed, 11 Apr 18 00:15:10 -0700

Entering menopause at a later age may be associated with a small benefit to your memory years later, according to a study published in the April 11, 2018, online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Early 'chemobrain' intervention needed for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy
More support is needed to help breast cancer patients and survivors manage 'chemobrain' symptoms, such as memory loss, short attention span and mental confusion, according to a study led by researchers from the National University of Singapore.
