Researchers find effects of exhaust fume
particles in people who live close to busy roadways, even children.
The discovery of genetic copy-number variants and growing data on their links to mental disorders suggest new paths of investigation and new targets for therapies.
the recent Society for Neuroscience conference, researchers describe how increased
movement can improve measures of brain volume and white-matter connections, as

How much is genetic? How much environment? Is
having a depressive mother a sentence of depression? Scientists tease out hints
and hope for more to help find children at most risk.
study suggests that memory changes in women in mid-life might be influenced by
dropping hormonal levels.
Two decades of cumulative genetic discoveries have shed
light on the heritability of Parkinson’s disease and uncovered novel pathways
that could provide an explanation for the progressive neuronal
degeneration associated with the disease.
hard to say, because so few studies have looked at it. A review of the
available research suggests people do ask for a drug they’ve seen advertised on
TV—and doctors do give it to them.
