Does practice really make perfect? (7/22/2014)

Does practice really make perfect? It's an age-old question, and a new study from Rice University, Princeton University and Michigan State University finds that while practice won't make you perfect, it will usually make you better at what you're practicing. ...> Full Article


Even mild traumatic brain injury may cause brain damage (7/22/2014)

Even mild traumatic brain injury may cause brain damage and thinking and memory problems, according to a study published in the July 16, 2014, online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. ...> Full Article


New knowledge about the brain's effective bouncer (7/22/2014)

Research from the University of Copenhagen is shedding new light on the brain's complicated barrier tissue. The blood-brain barrier is an effective barrier which protects the brain, but which at the same time makes it difficult to treat diseases such as Alzheimer's. In an in vitro blood-brain barrier, researchers can recreate the brain's transport processes for the benefit of the development of new pharmaceuticals for the brain. The new research findings are published in the AAPS Journal. ...> Full Article


A start-up develops bleeding-control gel for brain surgery (7/21/2014)

Endomedix, a start-up company housed at the New Jersey Institute of Technology's business incubator, received a $1.4 million federal grant to develop a spray-on gel that surgeons will use to staunch bleeding during brain surgery. ...> Full Article


Oregon study details brain pathways linking visual function, running (7/21/2014)

Oregon study details brain pathways linking visual function, runningA new study by researchers at the University of Oregon published today in the journal Neuron describes a brainstem circuit in mice that may help explain how active movement impacts the way the brain processes sensory information. ...> Full Article


Study cracks how the brain processes emotions (7/20/2014)

Study cracks how the brain processes emotionsAlthough feelings are personal and subjective, the human brain turns them into a standard code that objectively represents emotions across different senses, situations and even people, reports a new study by Cornell University neuroscientist Adam Anderson. ...> Full Article


Understanding consciousness (7/20/2014)

Why does a relentless stream of subjective experiences normally fill your mind? Maybe that's just one of those mysteries that will always elude us. Yet, research from Northwestern University suggests that consciousness lies well within the realm of scientific inquiry -- as impossible as that may currently seem. Although scientists have yet to agree on an objective measure to index consciousness, progress has been made with this agenda in several labs around the world. ...> Full Article


Why people with bipolar disorder are bigger risk-takers (7/19/2014)

Researchers from the universities of Manchester and Liverpool has shown that circuits in the brain involved in pursuing and relishing rewarding experiences are more strongly activated in people with bipolar disorder -- guiding them towards riskier gambles and away from safer ones. The study by the Universities of Manchester and Liverpool, published today in the journal 'BRAIN', used brain imaging to identify neural pathways that are responsible for the symptoms of the disorder. ...> Full Article


Discovery of a new means to erase pain (7/19/2014)

A study published in the scientific journal Nature Neuroscience by Yves De Koninck and Robert Bonin, two researchers at Université Laval, reveals that it is possible to relieve pain hypersensitivity using a new method that involves rekindling pain so that it can subsequently be erased. This discovery could lead to novel means to alleviate chronic pain. ...> Full Article


Thyroid hormone protects hippocampal cholinergic neurons in normal aged animals (7/19/2014)

Can thyroid hormone protect neuronal function and increase the survival rate of naturally aged animals? ...> Full Article


Neuroprotective effects of low concentration of lithium (7/19/2014)

Lithium, as a neuroprotective agent, benefits for neuronal survival. Recent cDNA array studies have demonstrated that mood stabilizer lithium exhibits neuroprotective effects through multiple targets. ...> Full Article


Scientists find important piece in the brain tumor puzzle (7/18/2014)

Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University and McGill University Health Centre have shown that a member of the protein family known as SUMO -- small ubiquitin-like modifier -- is a key to why tumor cells multiply uncontrollably, especially in the case of glioblastoma. ...> Full Article


Dodging dots helps explain brain circuitry (7/18/2014)

Dodging dots helps explain brain circuitryIn a new study, Brown University neuroscientists looked cell-by-cell at the brain circuitry that tadpoles, and possibly other animals, use to avoid collisions. The study produced a model of how individual inhibitory and excitatory neurons can work together to control a simple behavior. ...> Full Article


Outcomes of cerebral motor cortex neurons after rTMS or tDCS (7/18/2014)

Spasticity is considered a common reaction after injury, death or apoptosis of central nervous system neurons occur. ...> Full Article


Sleep deprivation leads to symptoms of schizophrenia (7/18/2014)

Sleep deprivation leads to symptoms of schizophreniaTwenty-four hours of sleep deprivation can lead to conditions in healthy persons similar to the symptoms of schizophrenia. This discovery was made by researchers under the guidance of the University of Bonn and King's College London. The scientists point out that this effect should be investigated more closely in persons who have to work at night. In addition, sleep deprivation may serve as a model system for the development of drugs to treat psychosis. ...> Full Article
