Psychology Research News -- ScienceDaily


( Lght-controlled 'off switch' for brain cells
May 24th 2024, 11:53

New genetic tool could help investigate brain function and psychiatric disorders.

( Sequencing of the developing human brain uncovers hundreds of thousands of new gene transcripts
May 23rd 2024, 20:50

Researchers uncovered 214,516 unique isoforms in the developing neocortex -- over 70% of which have not been previously studied.

( 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.

( 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.

( 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).

( 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.
