Science Daily Mind & Brain


( AI headphones let wearer listen to a single person in a crowd, by looking at them just once
May 24th 2024, 17:14

Engineers have developed an artificial intelligence system that lets someone wearing headphones look at a person speaking for three to five seconds to 'enroll' them. The system then plays just the enrolled speaker's voice in real time, even as the pair move around in noisy environments.

( Groundbreaking study connects genetic risk for autism to changes observed in the brain
May 23rd 2024, 20:50

A groundbreaking study has unveiled the most detailed view of the complex biological mechanisms underlying autism, showing the first link between genetic risk of the disorder to observed cellular and genetic activity across different layers of the brain.

( Does it matter if your kids listen to you? When adolescents reject mom's advice, it still helps them cope
May 23rd 2024, 15:36

Parents are often eager to give their adolescent children advice about school problems, but they may find that youth are less than receptive to their words of wisdom. However, kids who don't seem to listen to their parents may still benefit from their input, a new study shows.

( Psychedelic drug-induced hyperconnectivity in the brain helps clarify altered subjective experiences
May 23rd 2024, 15:36

A new study shows that the use of psilocybin, a compound found in the widely known 'magic mushrooms,' initiates a pattern of hyperconnectivity in the brain linked to the ego-modifying effects and feelings of oceanic boundlessness. The findings help explain the so-called mystical experiences people report during the use of psychedelics and are pertinent to the psychotherapeutic applications of psychedelic drugs to treat psychiatric disorders such as depression.

( Stress bragging may make you seem less competent, less likable at work
May 23rd 2024, 15:36

While work is occasionally stressful for everyone, some people wear stress as a badge of honor. They're taking one for the team and want to tell you all about it. New research found people who brag about their stress levels are seen as less competent and less likable by their co-workers.

( Researchers unveil shared and unique brain molecular dysregulations in PTSD and depression
May 23rd 2024, 15:36

Researchers analyzed multi-omic data from 231 people with PTSD or depression to uncover distinct molecular differences that might affect systems such as the nervous and immune systems, to contribute to these mental health conditions.

( Tracking the cellular and genetic roots of neuropsychiatric disease
May 23rd 2024, 15:32

A new analysis has revealed detailed information about genetic variation in brain cells that could open new avenues for the targeted treatment of diseases such as schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease.

( Key differences in brain development between autistic boys and girls
May 23rd 2024, 11:26

A new study finds key differences in the development of the cortex between autistic boys and girls ages 2-13. The study found sex-specific changes in the thickness of the outer layer of the brain, called the cortex.

( Approximately one in nine U.S. children diagnosed with ADHD, as new national study highlights an 'ever-expanding' public health concern
May 23rd 2024, 11:26

An exploration into the national U.S. dataset on children ever diagnosed with ADHD has revealed an 'ongoing and ever-expanding' public health issue.

( How family economic insecurity can hurt child mental health
May 23rd 2024, 11:25

Economic difficulty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic led to a cascade of connected problems for some parents -- resulting in mental health problems for their children, a new study suggests. Researchers found that economic insecurity was linked to higher levels of depressive symptoms for parents, which was then associated with poorer relationship quality for the couples. That was linked with more harsh parenting and then to increased internalizing behaviors for their children.

( Eating more ultra-processed foods tied to cognitive decline, stroke, according to study
May 22nd 2024, 22:53

People who eat more ultra-processed foods like soft drinks, chips and cookies may have a higher risk of having memory and thinking problems and having a stroke than those who eat fewer processed foods, according to a new study. The study does not prove that eating ultra-processed foods causes memory and thinking problems and stroke. It only shows an association.

( Wearable ultrasound patch enables continuous, non-invasive monitoring of cerebral blood flow
May 22nd 2024, 22:52

Engineers have developed a wearable ultrasound patch that can offer continuous, non-invasive monitoring of blood flow in the brain. The soft and stretchy patch can be comfortably worn on the temple to provide three-dimensional data on cerebral blood flow--a first in wearable technology.

( Brain connectivity patterns differ in infants at familial risk for autism
May 22nd 2024, 22:52

A study has found distinct brain connectivity patterns in six-week-old infants at risk for developing autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

( What factors predict when older adults will stop driving?
May 22nd 2024, 22:46

What factors lead older adults to stop driving? A new study followed older adults who had no memory or thinking problems to examine this question.

( New method for diagnosing sleep disorders in children
May 22nd 2024, 13:05

Research has resulted in a new method of screening for sleep disorders in children. The tool, the first of its kind, allows health professionals to assess children for multiple sleep problems at once, resulting in a quicker evaluation and more targeted treatment recommendations.

( Flicker stimulation shines in clinical trial for epilepsy
May 22nd 2024, 13:04

Researcher leads a new clinical trial testing her flicker technology on patients with epilepsy.

( New study highlights significant increases in cannabis use in United States
May 22nd 2024, 13:03

A new study assessed cannabis use in the United States between 1979 and 2022, finding that a growing share of cannabis consumers report daily or near-daily use and that their numbers now exceed those of daily and near-daily alcohol drinkers. The study concludes that long-term trends in cannabis use parallel corresponding changes in policy over the same period.
