Feed your brain with the latest findings in neuroscience research.
Symptoms of the disease follow the deaths of motor neurons, but ALS’s ultimate cause may lie elsewhere.
Studies link the presence of Toxoplasma gondii in the brain to higher rates of suicide attempts, schizophrenia, and infection. How might it contribute to the many causes of these diseases?
Is it a new-memory integrator? A virtual reality training program encoded in our genes? Or merely a warming-up of our neural engines?
Much of the damage caused by stroke results from gradual processes, which might be reversible. Scientists are trying compounds that block receptors and methods of cooling the overtaxed brain.
Researchers find microparticles can carry treatments across the blood-brain barrier and target only tumor cells.
