Brain & Nervous System
Findings could mean more selective treatment options for metabolic, central nervous system disorders.
The most interesting aspect of neuroarthistory is the way it enables us to get inside the minds of people who either could not or did not write about their work.
The simple act of anticipation may play a surprisingly important role in how fresh the memory of a tough experience remains.
Harvard scientists have identified key compounds that stimulate stem cell growth in the brain, which may one day lead to restored function for people affected by Parkinson's disease, strokes, multiple sclerosis, and a wide range of neurological disorders.
By pinpointing the motor and language areas of the brain with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), surgeons can target brain tumors more effectively while reducing the risk of damaging important cognitive and motor processes.
The effects of multiple sclerosis (MS) extend beyond visibly affected areas into large portions of the brain that outwardly appear normal
Findings shed light on the brain processes behind learning and memory.
Scientists have found special proteins that protect the brain after it has been damaged by a lack of oxygen, which occurs in conditions such as stroke, perinatal asphyxia, near drowning and traumatic brain injury.
Our brain does not use light only to form images of the world. Ambient light levels are detected by our nervous system and, without forming any image, profoundly influence human brain function.
St. Jude uses computer generated images of different types of same enzyme to unlock mysteries of antibiotic resistance and a rare form of brain degeneration.
Common brain cells may have stem cell like potential.
A naturally occurring protein in our brains could be the basis for a more promising epilepsy treatment.
The discovery could lead to a better understanding of major brain disorders.
Visual study and word play are among most effective memory techniques for brain.
New research suggests that nicotine treatment protects against the same type of brain damage that occurs in Parkinson's disease.
