Study reveals the specific changes that occur in the brains of mice exposed to cocaine. The findings shed new light on the role of dopamine in addiction, and provide new insight into dopamine transmission in the brain.
A newly developed blood test can measure the pace of biological aging by identifying specific DNA methylation marks.
People tend to think voice-user AI interfaces such as Siri or Alexa are more competent and emotionally engaging if they exhibit social cues.
Researchers report children with speech-language disorders or developmental language disorders have greater difficulty in regulating their emotions. The study also found the way in which parents manage their emotions has an impact on a child’s ability …
A new artificial intelligence algorithm analyses MRI data to accurately predict the age of a brain.
The free-energy principle can explain how neural networks minimize energy costs and are optimized for efficiency.
The genetic disruption of specific cell processes crucial to brain development was linked to disease risk in a wide range of mental health disorders including schizophrenia.
Heart disease that causes brain dysfunction can lead to the development of Alzheimer’s disease and triples the amount of amyloid-beta in the brain.
Researchers found alterations in different parts of the brain in males and females with severe depression. The findings also reveal a specific biomarker for depression in blood samples of women.
Mouse study reveals the presence of the Baml1 gene in the striatum has a sexually dimorphic effect on alcohol consumption. Male mice without the protein consumed more alcohol than those who did, while the reverse was true for females.
Study identifies a novel neural circuit that regulates spatial learning and memory in the brain’s hippocampal formation.
Researchers have identified a link between misshapen, fast replicating tau proteins, and accelerated cognitive decline. The findings shed new light on the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
A new framework describes how the locus coeruleus regulates the brain’s sensitivity to relevant information during situations that require attention.
Researchers have discovered a link between anxiety behaviors and PTSD to an increase in myelin in the brain’s gray matter.
Researchers identified molecular signatures of gestational inflammation that appear to be biomarkers for autism risk. The immune signatures were identified in both maternal blood samples during pregnancy and in umbilical cord blood from children later …
Researchers have identified a novel biomarker for depression and antidepressant response. The biomarker can be identified and monitored through blood samples.
Inhibition of the OR5B21 olfactory receptor gene significantly decreased the metastasis of breast cancer cells to the brain, lungs, and bones, researchers report.
