According to researchers, regular use of the popular clubbing drug, GHB, can have negative effects on brain networks associated with both long term and working memory.
A new study reveals sleep deprivation can seriously hinder memory. Findings report one of the main reasons for mistakes and accidents in surgery, transportation and operating power plans appears to be a lack of sleep.
Researchers have discovered a new way in which nerve cells can control movement.
Researchers explore the choice overload effect, a phenomenon that hampers the brain’s ability to make a decision when there are too many options.
A new study reports teens who sleep for less than 6 hours per night are at greater risk of mental health issues, substance abuse, accidents and other risk taking behaviors.
Progress toward decoding speech to help completely paralyzed people like Stephen Hawking talk again
Zombie cells are the ones that can’t die but are equally unable to perform the functions of a normal cell.
Researchers have successfully deployed a Zika virus vaccine to target and kill human glioblastoma brain cancer stem cells, which had been transplanted into mice. In a new study, the team shows that a live, attenuated version of the Zika virus could form the basis of a new treatment option for this fatal brain cancer.
By increasing the excitability of a subpopulation of “defective” inhibitory neurons, researchers at the UNIGE restore the synchronization of neural networks in the hippocampus, and are thus able to suppress certain behavioural symptoms associated with schizophrenia.
A new clinical trial will test whether an experimental vaccine can help patients’ immune systems to stop the spread of deadly glioblastoma brain cancer.
