A study by researchers at Purdue University suggests that some high school football players suffer undiagnosed changes in brain function and continue playing even though they are impaired.
Unlocking the mystery of neurological disorders starts with understanding how neurons are generated and maintained.
Using advanced MRI and an artificial intelligence technique, researchers in Geneva, Switzerland, have identified a method that may help identify which individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) will continue to decline.
A new study shows that mild cognitive impairment (MCI) may affect more men than women.
A team of researchers from the UK and Finland has discovered why people who stay in education longer have a lower risk of developing dementia â€“ a question that has puzzled scientists for the past decade.
A new Mayo Clinic study found that apathy and depression significantly predict an individual's progression from mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a disorder of the brain that affects nerve cells involved in thinking abilities, to dementia, including Alzheimer's disease and Lewy body dementia.

Impairments more severe than early-stage Alzheimer's disease.
To their surprise, researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) have discovered that morphine (a derivate of the opium poppy that is similar to heroin) protects rat neurons against HIV toxicity - a finding they say might help in the design of new neuroprotective therapies for patients with the infection.
