New cancer scan could guide brain surgery
A type of ultrasound scan can detect cancer tissue left behind after a brain tumor is removed more sensitively than surgeons, and could improve the outcome from operations, a new study suggests.
Memory without a brain: How a single cell slime mold makes smart decisions
How a single cell slime mold makes smart decisions without a central nervous system.
New study: Malaria tricks brain's defense system
Every year, more than 400,000 people die from malaria, the majority are children under the age of five years old, who die from a disease which affects more than 200 million people a year.
MRI study reveals slowed brain activity during light sleep
Overall brain activity declines during light stages of sleep, even as communication between different brain regions becomes "much more dynamic," according to the researchers behind a study published by iScience.
Better diet and glucose uptake in the brain lead to longer life in fruit flies
Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have discovered that fruit flies with genetic modifications to enhance glucose uptake have significantly longer lifespans. Looking at the brain cells of aging flies, they found that better glucose uptake compensates for age-related deterioration in motor functions, and led to longer life.
Parasite found in undercooked meat linked with risk of rare brain cancer
A common parasite people get from contaminated water and undercooked meat may be associated with rare brain cancers, researchers reported Monday.
Large study finds higher burden of acute brain dysfunction for COVID-19 ICU patients
COVID-19 patients admitted to intensive care in the early months of the pandemic were subject to a significantly higher burden of delirium and coma than is typically found in patients with acute respiratory failure. Choice of sedative medications and curbs on family visitation played a role in increasing acute brain dysfunction for these patients.
Sleep is irreplaceable for recovery of brain
Sleep is ubiquitous in animals and humans and vital for healthy functioning. Thus, sleep after training improves performance on various tasks in comparison to equal periods of active wakefulness. However, it has been unclear so far whether this is due to an active refinement of neural connections or merely due to the absence of novel input during sleep.
Weight training could protect parts of brain vulnerable to Alzheimer’s
Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe different progressive neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Symptoms can range from memory loss to problems with movement.
Common brain malformation traced to its genetic roots
About one in 100 children has a common brain disorder called Chiari 1 malformation, but most of the time such children grow up normally and no one suspects a problem. But in about one in 10 of those children, the condition causes headaches, neck pain, hearing, vision and balance disturbances, or other neurological symptoms.
How does brain project manage its learning?
The famous patient Henry Molaison (long known as H.M.) suffered damage to his hippocampus after a surgical attempt to cure his epilepsy. As a result, he had anterograde amnesia, which meant that things he learned never made it past his short-term memory. Though his memories of childhood remained intact, H.M. might meet with his doctor and five minutes later say, 'Oh, I don't think I've ever met you. What's your name?'.
Brain scans, surveys help scientists paint neural portrait of loneliness
Using brain scans, genetic analysis and psychological self-assessments, scientists have managed to render a kind of neural portrait of loneliness.
DeepMind’s brain: Shape of things to come
Has one of the most important questions of science now been answered? From the headlines you might think so. For some biology’s “holy grail” had been found. For others planetary extinction could be averted. On the surface the news seemed rather mundane. Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) company DeepMind won an international competition that asked entrants to predict how proteins fold in three dimensions given only the sequences of their chemical links, or amino acids.
Vision-restoring brain implants spell breakthrough
Scientists are a step closer to restoring vision for the blind, after building an implant that bypasses the eyes and allows monkeys to perceive artificially induced patterns in their brains.
Human brain builds structures in 11 dimensions, discover scientists
The brain continues to surprise us with its magnificent complexity. Groundbreaking research that combines neuroscience with math tells us that our brain creates neural structures with up to 11 dimensions when it processes information.
