New research from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine finds that the more years of education a person has, the better they may be able to recover from traumatic brain injury.
New research has found that marijuana use may increase the risk of cardiovascular problems, such as heart attack, particularly for young and middle-aged adults.
A known precursor of Alzheimer's disease, mild cognitive impairment, has now been linked to early death in a study presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s Annual Meeting.
A nanodevice - inspired by how viruses make themselves invisible to the immune system - has successfully completed its pilot mission, paving the way for smart DNA nanorobots.
An FDA-approved brain stimulator with a novel electrode placement system has resulted in nearly half of patients with epilepsy in a trial experiencing total seizure cessation.
Investigators from UT Southwestern have discovered how a natural antidepressant hormone works in the brain and have uncovered a neuroprotective drug that could treat depression.
A study of the gene BAALC and the smaller gene miR-3151 embedded within it finds the smaller one is the major driver of acute myeloid leukemia and not its better-known host.
Research led by McGill University in Canada found that inflammatory pain significantly reduced the sexual desire of female mice but had no affect on the sex drive of male mice.
Could the antibiotic resistance genes inhabiting the guts of dairy cows be passed into the human ecosystem via bacteria in the cows' farm soil-fertilizing manure?
The anxiety that comes with receiving a false-positive mammogram result is only temporary, researchers say, and it actually makes women more likely to undergo screening in future.
A new statement from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says there is insufficient evidence to suggest that labor induction or augmentation causes autism.
Narrowing of the carotid artery is usually associated with increased stroke risk, but according to new research, it may also lead to memory and thinking problems.
Researchers have found that, compared with other types of abdominal pain, IBS in children is linked with a much higher prevalence of celiac disease, a heritable condition.
Chronic inflammation in benign prostate tissue is linked to nearly double the risk of having prostate cancer, and high-grade prostate cancer in particular.
Researchers have found that stem cell nuclei demonstrate an unusual, counterintuitive property never seen before in cells - auxeticity - where stretching causes them to expand.
A research team has identified a new class of so-called chaperone compounds that stabilize a protein complex, thus protecting neurons from amyloid-beta, a hallmark of Alzheimer's.
Researchers have assessed skull measurements from eastern and western bands of Cherokee, and found that environmental stressors may have affected their skull development.
Researchers from the Netherlands have found that carrying out tasks in a preferred temperature, whether warm or cold, may boost working memory, making us more productive.
Doctors do not know why, in some people, the nervous system can trigger pain signals that last for weeks, months or even years. New evidence suggests a genetic basis for this.
How does the brain create memories? Johns Hopkins researchers may be closer to finding out. They uncovered brain activity in rats that may indicate the point of memory formation.
