The Genetic Signature of Memory

Despite their importance in memory, the human cortex and subcortex display a distinct collection of 'gene signatures.' The work increases our understanding of how the brain creates memories ... read more

Concussion Alters How Information Is Transmitted Within the Brain

Damage from concussion alters the way information is transmitted between the 2 halves of the brain, according to a new ... read more

Hydromethylthionine Could Slow Cognitive Decline: Minimum Dose

Researchers have reported unexpected results of a pharmacokinetic analysis of the relationship between treatment dose, blood levels and pharmacological activity of the drug hydromethylthionine on the ... read more

Playing Board Games May Help Protect Thinking Skills in Old Age

People who play games -- such as cards and board games -- are more likely to stay mentally sharp in later life, a study suggests. Those who regularly played non-digital games scored better on memory ... read more

Changes in Pupils After Asymptomatic High-Acceleration Head Impacts Indicate Changes in Brain Function

Researchers used quantitative pupillometry to detect pupillary changes in high-school athletes after they sustained a high-acceleration head impact. These pupillary changes, indicative of changes in ... read more

Concussions in High School Athletes May Be a Risk Factor for Suicide

Concussion, the most common form of traumatic brain injury, has been linked to an increased risk of depression and suicide in adults. Now new research suggests high school students with a history of ... read more

Science Underestimated Dangerous Effects of Sleep Deprivation

One of the largest sleep studies dubunks theory that suggests attention is the only cognitive function affected by sleep ... read more

Multifunctional Small Brains

Researchers discovered that not only the cerebral cortex is responsible for higher perceptual abilities but that the cerebellum also plays a role. This discovery can help understand the consequences ... read more

Walking Changes Vision

When people walk around, they process visual information differently than at rest: the peripheral visual field shows enhanced ... read more

New Statistical Model Improves the Predictive Power of Standardized Test Scores

A study has validated a new statistical model that uses multiple standardized test scores over time to predict future academic performance. The dynamic measurement model accurately predicted academic ... read more

Virtual 'Moonwalk' for Science Reveals Distortions in Spatial Memory

In order to orient ourselves in space, and to find our way around, we form mental maps of our surroundings. But what happens if the coordinate system of our brain, which measures our mental maps, is ... read more

Research Reveals No Link Between Statins and Memory Loss

Over 6 years, researchers evaluated the cognitive effects of statins in elderly consumers, revealing no negative impact and potential protective effects in those at risk of ... read more

New Cell Therapy Improves Memory and Stops Seizures Following TBI

Researchers have developed a breakthrough cell therapy to improve memory and prevent seizures in mice following traumatic brain ... read more

Smart People May Learn Music Faster

Why do some people learn music more quickly than others? Intelligence could play a role, according to a new study that investigated the early stages of learning to play ... read more

Restoring Protein Homeostasis Improves Memory Deficits in Down Syndrome Model

Researchers found that that defects in a conserved stress pathway known as the 'integrated stress response,' or ISR, could explain the cognitive deficits in a mouse model of Down ... read more

Link Between Hearing and Cognition Begins Earlier Than Once Thought

A new study finds that cognitive impairment begins in the earliest stages of age-related hearing loss -- when hearing is still considered ... read more

People Who Cannot Read May Be Three Times as Likely to Develop Dementia

New research has found that people who are illiterate, meaning they never learned to read or write, may have nearly three times greater risk of developing dementia than people who can read and ... read more

Lithium Can Reverse Radiation Damage After Brain Tumor Treatment

Children who have received radiotherapy for a brain tumor can develop cognitive problems later in life. In their studies on mice, researchers have now shown that the drug lithium can help to reverse ... read more

Why Only Some Post-Stroke Survivors Can 'Copy What I Say'
