Study points to the evolutionary and developmental similarities between sensory cells in the inner ear and skin.
Expectant fathers with higher levels of brain activation and oxytocin later endorsed a more “child-led” empathetic style of parenting once their child was born.
Combining brain scan images with machine learning, researchers identified a number of brain changes following TBI that share similarities with Alzheimer’s disease. The findings add to the growing body of evidence that the two conditions follow the same…
Consuming high levels of sugar-sweetened beverages early in life may lead to memory problems during adulthood. Researchers found, compared to rats who consumed only water, those who drank sugar-sweetened beverages had difficulties in memory recall asso…
Studying human-machine interactions, researchers found that during the pandemic, people are not only more altruistic to other humans, their behaviors also extend to machines. This may be explained by the growing popularity of digital assistants, such a…
It’s not only our genetics and environment that play a role in aging and longevity, it’s also the random, tiny changes that arise on the cellular level.
A new mathematical algorithm examines data from EEG and brain implants to learn each epilepsy patient’s unique brain pattern signatures. The system can predict the onset of a seizure within an hour, allowing the patient to take necessary interventions.
Researchers say including social and behavioral factors in addition to biological mechanisms is critical for improving research on aging.
A new AI system is not only able to analyze potential new variants of COVID-19, it can also vaccine design cycles within minutes, researchers report.
Lower white blood cell count associated with HIV infection was linked to decreased volume in the hippocampus and thalamus.
Mapping perivascular spaces over life-span will help researchers better understand brain aging and cognitive decline.
Researchers reveal the role hundreds of miRNAs appear to play in modulating circadian rhythm.
Older adults who experienced financial exploitation showed differences in brain activity in areas associated with social judgment and decision making. Additionally, those who are exploited financially tend to be physically frailer than their peers, wit…
A new machine-learning algorithm has uncovered new neural mechanisms and enhanced the decoding of behaviors directly from brain signaling data.
A new computational model predicts how information deep inside the brain could flow from one network to another, and how neural network clusters can self optimize over time.
The hunger hormone ghrelin doesn’t just influence where and when animals eat, it also appears to have an impact on memory. Disrupting signaling of ghrelin to the vagus nerve caused rats to forget they had just eaten, even though the animals remembered …
Two new studies from USC reveal the implications of air pollution on brain development and neurological health in children and older women.
Study reports modifying twelve risk factors over your lifetime could reduce dementia risk by 40%.
Humanin, a peptide encoded in mitochondria, appears to have a beneficial impact on both health and longevity in both humans and animals. Higher levels of humanin in the body are associated with longer life spans and a reduced risk of neurodegenerative …
Cryo-electron microscopy captures detailed snapshots of the GABAB receptor protein contorts as it interacts with GABA.
