Scientists are growing 300 “test tube” human brains with the goal of studying and developing cures for neurological disorders.
A new brain scanning tool allows scientists to see real-time how genes in the human brain are switching off.
A new study found that a person’s social behavior could be controlled by the immune system. The discovery could have big implications for autism and schizophrenia.
A new MRI study conducted by a team of international researchers shows that the brain of schizophrenic petients have the capacity to reorganize and fight the illness.
Candida linked to mental illness, study finds.
Researchers found that prairie voles show empathy by grooming or consoling another individual that appears to be distressed. This could be a major breakthrough for better understanding of psychiatric disorders in humans, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and schizophrenia.
Genome sequencing, paired with a behavioral test, identified several genes linked to anxiety in chickens. Researchers believe the same genes may play a role in mouse and human behavior.
Researchers have discovered new evidence that indicates that, like many genetic disorders, schizophrenia may begin in the womb. Using stem cells, researchers observed the formation of early-stage neurons and identified key changes common among schizophrenic patients.
Researchers have identified a unique mechanism that is unexpectedly effective at improving decision response accuracy. Decision making accuracy can be improved by waiting even just a fraction of a second. Waiting as little as 50 to 100 milliseconds allows the brain to focus on more pertinent information rather than extraneous matters.
