New research provides additional insight into how the brain regulates body fat and could help provide more effective methods of weight loss.

Researchers Create Short-Term Memories In-Vitro - Researchers have discovered how to store diverse forms of artificial short-term memories in isolated brain tissue.

This is good to know as we begin to implement 'in-vitro!' Common core standards Researchers Create Short-Term Memories In-Vitro - Researchers have discovered how to store diverse forms of artificial short-term memories in isolated brain tissue.

Age Related Dementia May Begin with Neurons’ Inability to Rid Themselves of Unwanted Proteins - Researchers discovered age related dementia likely results due to a declining ability of neurons to dispose of unwanted aggregated proteins. The image shows the chemical structure of neuroserpin, an accumulation of which was associated with age related dementia in mice within this study. More at NeuroscienceNews.com.

Researcher discover age related dementia likely occurs due to the declining ability for neurons to dispose of unwanted aggregated proteins.

Researchers Discover Gene that Permanently Stops Cancer Cell Proliferation - Researchers discovered a mutant form of Chk1 gene that when expressed in cancer cells, permanently stopped their proliferation and caused cell death without the addition of any chemotherapeutic drugs. This study illustrates an unprecedented finding, that artificially activating Chk1 alone is sufficient to kill cancer cells.

Researchers Discover Gene that Permanently Stops Cancer Cell Proliferation

On May 26, 2016, researchers at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center reported the first case of what they called a “truly pan-drug resistant bacteria.” By now, the story has been well-covered in the media: a month earlier, a 49 year old woman walked into a clinic in Pennsylvania with what seemed to be a urinary tract infection. But tests revealed something far scarier—both for her and public health officials. The strain of E. Coli that infiltrated her body has a gene that makes…

To Spread, Nervous System Viruses Sabotage Cell, Hijack Transportation

Herpes and other viruses that attack the nervous system may thrive by disrupting cell function in order to hijack a neuron's internal transportation network and spread to other cells.

Neuroscientists reverse memories' emotional associations

A new study reports researchers have been able to alter the emotional association of specific memories by manipulating neural circuits in mouse brains.

Bodily self-consciousness includes the conscious experience of identifying with the body, of where 'I' am in space, and of the perspective from where 'I' perceive the world. In this intriguing review for Nature Reviews Neuroscience, Olaf Blanke discusses the cortical mechanisms that underlie these experiences, highlighting data from neuroimaging, neurology and virtual reality (Credit: Olaf Blanke) #NPG

If only there were a way to forget that humiliating faux pas at last night's dinner party. It turns out there's not one, but two opposite ways in which the brain allows us to voluntarily forget unwanted memories, according to a new study. The findings may explain how individuals can cope with undesirable experiences and could lead to the development of treatments to improve disorders of memory control.

Brain-to-brain verbal communication in humans achieved for the first time - A team of researchers has successfully achieved brain-to-brain human communication using non-invasive technologies across a distance of miles.

How Early Social Deprivation Impairs Long-Term Cognitive Function - Social isolation during early life prevents the cells that make up the brain's white matter from maturing and producing the right amount of myelin, the fatty "insulation" on nerve fibers that helps them transmit long-distance messages within the brain.

The Race to the Top: The Use of 'Smart Drugs' to Excel in Academia and in the Professional World - NeuroscienceNews.com “People who seek to aggrandize their cognitive strengths via consumption of nontoxic, neuro-protecting substances should not be precluded from maximizing their cognitive potential especially during a time when pressures to succeed are amplified by the ever-so competitive nature of placement exams and nerve-wracking interviews.” Zaheera Shabbir

Zaheera Shabbir presents her opinion about the use of nootropics as smart drugs to enhance cognitive abilities.
