( Different brain structures in females lead to more severe cognitive deficits after concussion than males
May 16th 2024, 16:05

Important brain structures that are key for signaling in the brain are narrower and less dense in females, and more likely to be damaged by brain injuries, such as concussion. Long-term cognitive deficits occur when the signals between brain structures weaken due to the injury. The structural differences in male and female brains might explain why females are more prone to concussions and experience longer recovery from the injury than their male counterparts.

( Singing repairs the language network of the brain after a cerebrovascular accident
May 16th 2024, 12:26

Singing rehabilitates speech production in post-stroke aphasia. Researchers investigated the rehabilitative effect of singing on the brain.

( How does the brain turn waves of light into experiences of color?
May 16th 2024, 12:26

Perceiving something -- anything -- in your surroundings is to become aware of what your senses are detecting. Today, neuroscientists identify, for the first time, brain-cell circuitry in fruit flies that converts raw sensory signals into color perceptions that can guide behavior.

( Very early blood pressure control confers both benefits and harms in acute stroke
May 16th 2024, 12:25

Early identification of stroke type could be key to harnessing the benefits of very early in-ambulance blood pressure lowering treatment in patients with suspected acute stroke, according to new research.

( 'Trojan horse' weight loss drug more effective than available therapies
May 15th 2024, 22:51

A groundbreaking article describes a promising new therapy for obesity that leads to greater weight loss in mice than existing medications. The approach smuggles molecules into the brain's appetite center and affects the brain's neuroplasticity.

( Climate change likely to aggravate brain conditions
May 15th 2024, 22:50

Climate change, and its effects on weather patterns and adverse weather events, is likely to negatively affect the health of people with brain conditions, argue a team of researchers.

( Artificial intelligence tool detects male-female-related differences in brain structure
May 14th 2024, 14:14

Artificial intelligence (AI) computer programs that process MRI results show differences in how the brains of men and women are organized at a cellular level, a new study shows. These variations were spotted in white matter, tissue primarily located in the human brain's innermost layer, which fosters communication between regions.
