How to predict who will suffer the most from stress (10/25/2014)

New research from Concordia University has found a way to identify those most susceptible to stress. That's a huge help for health-care professionals working to stop stress before it gets out of control. ...> Full Article


NIH taps lab to develop sophisticated electrode array system to monitor brain act (10/25/2014)

The National Institutes of Health awarded Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory a grant today to develop an electrode array system that will enable researchers to better understand how the brain works through unprecedented resolution and scale. ...> Full Article


If you're over 60, drink up: Alcohol associated with better memory (10/25/2014)

Researchers from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, University of Kentucky, and University of Maryland found that for people 60 and older who do not have dementia, light alcohol consumption during late life is associated with higher episodic memory -- the ability to recall memories of events. ...> Full Article


UMD receives inaugural BRAIN Initiative Award (10/24/2014)

University of Maryland and National Institutes of Health researchers received a three-year $1.7 million grant from the NIH to develop new imaging technologies and data analysis techniques that will further our understanding of how large networks of neurons in the brain interact to process sensory information. This knowledge will help researchers identify the precise interactions between millions of nerve cells that drive behavior and alterations in these interactions that may be responsible for brain disorders. ...> Full Article


Salk scientists receive $3 million for BRAIN Initiative grant (10/24/2014)

Boys and girls who've had a traumatic brain injury differ in rates of harmful behavior (10/24/2014)

Teenagers who said they had a traumatic brain injury in their lifetime, especially girls, also reported significantly higher rates of harmful behavior, according to new research. ...> Full Article


US aims for traumatic brain injury clinical trial success (10/24/2014)

An unprecedented, public-private partnership funded by the Department of Defense is being launched to drive the development of better-run clinical trials and may lead to the first successful treatments for traumatic brain injury, a condition affecting not only athletes and soldiers, but also millions among the general public, ranging from youngsters to elders. ...> Full Article


Unsteady on your feet? Little touches could make all the difference (10/24/2014)

When a toddler takes their first steps we observe an uncertain sway in their walking. Being unsteady on our feet is something we can experience throughout life -- and a new study has shown how even the lightest fingertip touch can help people to maintain their balance. ...> Full Article


Make precise strategic decisions even when the unexpected happens (10/23/2014)

Make precise strategic decisions even when the unexpected happensBeing able to react to the unexpected by taking a strategic change of course can prove to be the salvation of a company and its leaders. Leveraging Flexibility, a new book written by four business experts, reveals the significance of uncertainty and flexibility in strategic decision-making and demonstrates the extent to which these factors influence the value of a strategy or an asset. ...> Full Article


Selectively rewiring the brain's circuitry to treat depression (10/23/2014)

On 'Star Trek,' it is easy to take for granted the incredible ability of futuristic doctors to wave small devices over the heads of both humans and aliens, diagnose their problems through evaluating changes in brain activity or chemistry, and then treat behavior problems by selectively stimulating relevant brain circuits. ...> Full Article


Adolescent exposure to thc may cause immune systems to go up in smoke (10/23/2014)

When it comes to using marijuana, new research, involving mice and published in the October 2014 issue of the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, suggests that just because you can do it, doesn't mean that you should. That's because a team of Italian scientists have found that using marijuana in adolescence may do serious long-term damage to the immune system. ...> Full Article


Self-compassion key to positive body image and coping (10/22/2014)

Women who accept and tolerate their imperfections appear to have a more positive body image despite their body mass index and are better able to handle personal disappointments and setbacks in their daily lives. ...> Full Article


Study reveals new clues to help understand brain stimulation (10/22/2014)

A new study from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center suggests that brain networks -- the interconnected pathways that link brain circuits to one another -- can help guide site selection for brain stimulation therapies. ...> Full Article


Is expressive suppression effective in reducing negative emotion? (10/22/2014)

It is a prevailing conclusion in European-American population that expressive suppression is unable to effectively reduce negative emotion and physiological arousal. A recent study in Chinese people showed that expressive suppression is not only capable of reducing negative emotion but also dampens negative emotion faster than reappraisal. This may be related to the Chinese culture which highlights 'relational harmony and self-discipline.' ...> Full Article


Single-neuron 'hub' orchestrates activity of an entire brain circuit (10/21/2014)

New Tel Aviv University research makes a major contribution to efforts to navigate the brain, offering a precise model of the organization of developing neuronal circuits. If researchers can further identify the cellular type of 'hub neurons,' it may be possible to reproduce them in vitro and transplant them into aged or damaged brain circuitries in order to recover functionality. ...> Full Article
