Researching the Brain, Seeking Cures

Stanford University Radiologists improved their diagnoses of brain aneurysms with the help of an artificial intelligence algorithm developed by medical experts and computer scientists.
A new study by Stony Brook University scientists reveals that higher education is associated with later onset of Alzheimer’s-related accelerated cognitive declines. Their findings are published early online in the Journal of Gerontology.
BU neuroscientist shows that stimulating different parts of the brain can dial up or down a specific memory’s emotional oomph
Yale scientists have found circulation and cellular activity were restored in a pig’s brain four hours after its death, a finding that challenges long-held assumptions about the timing and irreversible nature of the cessation of some brain functions after death.
A USC study shows medication could someday help the brain heal itself after a stroke, or even prevent damage following a blow to the head.
A USC study showed that early morning exposure to natural light improved the mood of residents, reducing depression and psychoactive symptoms, which are common side effects of the neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers.
University of Oregon scientists researching the basics of how sound processing contributes to behavior have identified a portion of the brain, at least in mice, that integrates sound, action and reward expectation.
A Boston University CTE researcher says an experimental brain scan revealed abnormal tau protein in former NFL players, a key step toward diagnosing CTE in living people
University of Washington researchers have developed synthetic peptides that target and inhibit small, toxic aggregates now believed to cause Alzheimer's
By exposing mice to a unique combination of light and sound, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can improve cognitive and memory impairments similar to those seen in Alzheimer’s patients.
