Study establishes a comprehensive single-nucleus transcriptomic atlas of the aging primate hippocampus and provides key information about age-related molecular signatures at the single-cell level.
Study reveals there is little evidence to suggest high testosterone meaningfully affects socioeconomic status, health, or risk-taking in men or women.
The MeCP2 gene influences ketamine’s behavioral effect and strengthens synapses, leading to an improvement in the drug’s antidepressant effect over time.
Farnesol, a naturally occurring compound found in berries and other fruits, prevents the loss of dopamine-producing neurons and reverses Parkinson’s associated damage to the brain in mouse models.
Study reveals an abundance of the CRMP2 protein in people with schizophrenia. The findings could lead to a blood-based biomarker test for the mental health disorder.
Researchers recreated the damage seen in frontotemporal dementia in brain organoid models. The study reveals an experimental drug designed to treat Crohn’s disease may help prevent neuron death associated with FTD.
Study identifies a rare class of genetic differences transmitted from non-autistic parents to their children on the autism spectrum.
Alterations in long-term social behavior and gene expression were observed in the offspring of mice exposed to pain-killing opioids during pregnancy.
Researchers identified a novel, direct link between autism and the SUV39H2 gene.
Disruption of autophagy may be at the root of the cognitive deficits experienced by those with Huntington’s disease.
The release of neurotransmitters in the brain is impaired in people with schizophrenia who have the neurexin 1 gene mutation.
Using human stem cells to develop a brain organoid model, researchers were able to show exposure to a common pesticide synergizes with an autism-linked gene mutation. The study provides clear evidence that genetics and environment may combine to disrup…
Early-life exposure to antibiotics could impact brain development in areas associated with emotional and cognitive function, a new study reports. Researchers found penicillin exposure in infant mice altered the microbiome and gene expression in key are…
A new study reveals a number of different factors, including smoking, age, education levels, sex, handedness, and family medical history, which can have an impact on reaction time.
Research shows the role the molecular hauler KIF5C plays in long-term memory and synaptic plasticity.
Study reveals eleven genetic variants spanning ten genes, including previously unknown variants in two known Alzheimer’s risk genes.
Study points to the evolutionary and developmental similarities between sensory cells in the inner ear and skin.
People are less averse to the use of CRISPR gene editing in agriculture if the technology is used to promote disease resistance in animals. However, people tend to dislike the use of CRISPR when it comes to new breeding methods.
Brain cells snap DNA in more places and in more cell types than previously realized in order to express genes for learning and memory.
A new study reveals adults with ADHD have an increased risk of developing nervous system, respiratory, musculoskeletal, and metabolic diseases. ADHD was also associated with a slightly increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and cardiovascular…
