Hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention are more common in male dogs and young puppies, researchers say. The findings correspond to age and gender associated with ADHD in humans.
A new, freely available brain atlas reveals how brain metabolism changes throughout the life of mice.
Memories of objects from stressful situations rely on similar neural activity to memories of the stressful events themselves.
A new study reveals our genes play a key role in how our bodies respond to exercise. Researchers also identified specific genes that influence the outcome of different types of physical activity.
Moment-to-moment fluctuations in brain activity over a three-minute period can reliably predict how receptive a person with social anxiety will be to cognitive behavioral therapy.
Study reveals blunted activity in the medial prefrontal cortex was associated with aggressive behaviors by abusive partners in relationships.
Singing and imagined musical improvisation were associated with weaker connectivity to the executive function network in the brain and to the feeling of flow, which allows for unhindered musical creativity.
Breathing difficulties associated with Pitt Hopkins syndrome, a rare form of autism, have been linked to a specific set of neurons in the brainstem.
People diagnosed with mental health disorders are more likely to report poor sleep quality, including sleep disturbances and problems falling back to sleep, than the general population.
In mice, protein lactylation occurs in neurons and is correlated with lactate levels. Protein lactylation is enhanced by neural excitation and social stress. Researchers found social stress specifically enhances lysine lactylation of histone H1 proteins.
Researchers say levels of microRNA in the blood may be a reliable new biomarker for diagnosing mild cognitive impairment and other forms of dementia.
Sleep loss does not numb a person’s response to emotional situations, but it can result in difficulties in regulating emotional response.
People whose blood pressure is elevated but still falls within the normal range are at increased risk of accelerated brain aging, researchers report.
Increased accumulation of amyloid beta and a reduction of serotonin in the brains of older adults was associated with higher risks for developing depression later in life.
Exposure to even low levels of common chemicals called organophosphate esters can harm IQ, memory, learning, and brain development overall in young children.
Researchers have identified a brain rhythm associated with emotional conflict that appears to be a biomarker for anxiety disorder.
Collaborative work on the brain atlas describes how different cells are organized and connected throughout the mouse brain. Understanding what differentiates brain cells can lead to new research and potential therapies for brain disorders.
Study reveals why human brains are so good at learning. The findings could help with the development of more efficient AI models.
RAGE-Control, a video game system that utilizes biofeedback to regulate heart rate, reduces stress, oppositional behavior, and aggression by training children to stay calm during stressful and frustrating situations.
Researchers have identified a neural circuit that regulates threat response in mice.
