Those of us with little patience may not have enough serotonin in our brains, as a new study in the journal Current Biology has linked the neurotransmitter to increased ability to wait in lab mice.
Recipient of AxoGen nerve grafts will represent all nerve tissue recipients and ride on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float to promote awareness of importance of nerve tissue donation
Study in humans tracks information flow within the brain using ultra-precise magnetic resonance imaging
A couple of years ago a scientist looking at dozens of MRI scans of human brains noticed something surprising. A large, fiber pathway that seemed to be part of the network of connections that process visual information showed up on the scans, but the researcher couldn’t find it mentioned in any of the modern-day - anatomy textbooks he had.
Researchers studying chronic fatigue syndrome have found that people suffering from the condition exhibit structural brain abnormalities, according to a new study in the journal Radiology.
Eating spicy Indian food could help boost the brain’s ability to heal itself, according to new research published in Friday’s edition of the journal Stem Cell Research and Therapy.
In his new role, Philip plans to use his position on the Board to advance MSA awareness, educate health professionals and collaborate with other charities to make government funding available
If you have ever succumbed to a craving for high-calorie snacks, and most of us surely have, you may not feel quite so bad after reading a study by the School of Public Health and Health Systems and the Department of Kinesiology at Canada’s University of Waterloo.
People with multiple sclerosis (MS) lose myelin in the gray matter of their brains and the loss is closely correlated with the severity of the disease, according to a new magnetic resonance imaging
The midbrain, also known as the mesencephalon is the part of the brain most responsible for vision, motor control, arousal, temperature regulation, alertness and hearing. Formation and Orientation The midbrain is found under the cerebral cortex and above the hindbrain. The mesencephalon is not divided into any other portions of the brain unlike the other two vesicles that stem from the neural tube. There are four separate lobes on the side of the cerebral aqueduct within the...
Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...
