What the age of your brain says about you
Apr 25, 2017
A study just published in Molecular Psychiatry introduces a clinically relevant neuroimaging aging biomarker and demonstrates that combining distinct measures of biological aging further helps to determine risk of age-related deterioration and death. Such biomarkers could potentially identify those at risk of age-associated health problems years before symptoms appear, and be used as outcome measures in trials of therapeutics aimed at delaying the onset of age-related disease.
Could regulating the circadian rythm help people regain consciousness?
Apr 19, 2017
A study published today in the journal Neurology is the first to report an association between circadian variations in body temperature and arousal in brain-injured patients.
Researchers discover birth-and-death life cycle of neurons in the adult mouse gut
Apr 18, 2017
Using a mouse model, Johns Hopkins researchers finds proof that every day the gut loses and regenerates about 5% of its nerve cells, and that over the course of a few weeks, the whole enteric nerve system turns over. The study findings are published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
