Magnetism to remotely stimulate brain and control body movements

Magnetism to remotely stimulate brain and control body movements
  Scientists have used magnetism to activate tiny groups of cells in the brain, inducing bodily movements that include running, rotating and losing control of the extremities — an achievement that could lead to advances in studying and treating neurological disease.

Lower brain serotonin levels could be linked to dementia

Lower brain serotonin levels could be linked to dementia
  In a study looking at brain scans of people with mild loss of thought and memory ability, Johns Hopkins researchers report evidence of lower levels of the serotonin transporter -- a natural brain chemical that regulates mood, sleep and appetite.

On the path to discovering new kinds of brain cells

On the path to discovering new kinds of brain cells
Salk Institute and University of California San Diego scientists have, for the first time, profiled chemical modifications of DNA molecules in individual neurons, giving the most detailed information yet on what makes one brain cell different from its neighbour. This is a critical step in beginning to identify how many types of neurons exist, which has eluded neuroscientists but could lead to a dramatically better understanding about brain development and dysfunction.

Game development prevents cognitive decline in the elderly

Game development prevents cognitive decline in the elderly
Information technology can be a powerful tool for preserving the cognitive functions of people over 60 years of age. This proposition was the basis of Fabio Ota’s initiative, which was undertaken in a research project supported by FAPESP’s Innovative Research in Small Business (PIPE) to test the benefits of teaching game programming techniques to a group of 46 people over the age of sixty, with the aim of developing logical reasoning and preventing cognitive decline.

Illuminating neural pathways in the living brain

Illuminating neural pathways in the living brain
Using light alone, scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried are now able to reveal pairs or chains of functionally connected neurons under the microscope. The new optogenetic method, named Optobow, allows probing the pathways along which information flows by targeted activation of individual neurons and monitoring the responses of neighboring cells.

Propagating light deeper into the human brain

Propagating light deeper into the human brain
  Dr. Vladislav Yakovlev, professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been developing a more efficient way of propagating light through an opaque medium. Propagation of light refers to the way that light travels from one point to another, in this case, through a medium, such as human tissue.

When scientists became lab mice for brain-scanning project

When scientists became lab mice for brain-scanning project
A quest to analyse the unique features of individual human brains evolved into the so-called Midnight Scan Club, a group of scientists who had big ideas but almost no funding and little time to research the trillions of neural connections that activate the body's most powerful organ. The research group started in 2013 by two neuroscientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis who aimed to collect a massive amount of data on individual brains.

Substance improves brain function and fights dementia

Substance improves brain function and fights dementia
The protein amyloid beta is believed to be the major cause of Alzheimer’s disease. Substances that reduce the production of amyloid beta, such as BACE inhibitors, are therefore promising candidates for new drug treatments. A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has recently demonstrated that one such BACE inhibitor reduces the amount of amyloid beta in the brain. By doing so, it can restore the normal function of nerve cells and significantly improve memory performance.

Neural stem cells discovered to control ageing

Neural stem cells discovered to control ageing
Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine have found that stem cells in the brain's hypothalamus govern how fast aging occurs in the body. The finding, made in mice, could lead to new strategies for warding off age-related diseases and extending lifespan. The paper was published in Nature. The hypothalamus was known to regulate important processes including growth, development, reproduction and metabolism.
