Researchers at the Center for BrainHealth® at the University of Texas at Dallas investigated the effects on the brain of concurrent cannabis and nicotine use, versus the use of solely cannabis and solely nicotine.
Researchers have identified specific brain networks that helps us associate objects with their names.
Researchers have identified 35 genes associated with cannabis use. The study reports many of these genes are also associated with personality types, risk taking behavior, alcohol and tobacco use, and some psychiatric conditions.
Scientists have discovered that a small group of brain cells in the hypothalamus called ‘orexin’ neurons could be a promising target for medications for controlling binge eating episodes in individuals with obesity.
In one of the biggest breakthroughs in schizophrenia research in recent times, Professor Cynthia Shannon Weickert at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) has identified immune cells in greater amounts in the brains of some people with schizophrenia.
A new study identifies two genes which regulate how much we dream. The genes, Chrm1 and Chrm3, play a key role in regulating REM sleep and function in different ways.
Researchers from the University of Oxford, in collaboration with researchers from Canada and the Universities of Bristol and London, have used advanced magnetic resonance imaging to investigate whether factors such as blood pressure, fitness, smoking and alcohol intake during young adult life are associated with changes in the blood vessels inside the brain.
NIH study reveals prevalence of and risk factors for phantom odor perception.
Novel enzyme treatment may reduce inflammation and scarring that prevent neuronal regeneration, TAU researchers say
We talk to Bruce Ecker who is a leading figure in the application of memory reconsolidation knowledge in psychotherapy for transformational change.
Researchers say the randomness of the piriform cortex plays a critical role when it comes to distinguishing between similar odors.
A new study reports that while listening to music, brain activity becomes synchronized to the rhythmic structure of the sound, specifically the frequency of the beat.
Researchers have now uncovered that a gene called Maged1 plays a crucial role in controlling these pathological changes.
