Scientists from the University of Sheffield have identified new messenger molecules shuttled between cells which could help to protect the survival of neurones - potentially leading to new treatments for MND .
 
 WPI researchers use brain imaging to enhance personal learning environments
 
WPI researchers use brain imaging to enhance personal learning environmentsCould a computer detect a person's emotions? Could it tell when someone is frustrated over something like a tricky math problem on an online tutoring program? Could it detect deep reflection on a problem? A research team led by Worcester Polytechnic Institute computer science assistant professor Erin Solovey is working to develop a system that could extract that information by merging computer science with neuroscience.

UCLA-led scientists discover new clues to what goes wrong in the brains of people with autismA team of UCLA-led scientists has discovered important clues to what goes wrong in the brains of people with autism -- a developmental disorder with no cure and for which scientists have no deep understanding of what causes it.
 
 
 Fibrinogen results in cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease, finds study
 
Fibrinogen results in cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease, finds studyIt has long been known that patients with Alzheimer's disease have abnormalities in the vast network of blood vessels in the brain. Some of these alterations may also contribute to age-related cognitive decline in people without dementia.
 
 
 Salk researchers pin down why some patients don't respond to common antidepressants
 
Salk researchers pin down why some patients don't respond to common antidepressantsThe most commonly prescribed antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, lift the fog of depression for many people. But for around a third of people with major depressive disorder, SSRIs don't make much of a difference.
 
 
 UC study reveals most effective medication for treating pediatric anxiety
 
UC study reveals most effective medication for treating pediatric anxietyResearchers from the University of Cincinnati (UC) examined common medications prescribed for children and adolescents with anxiety disorders, to determine which are the most effective and best-tolerated.
 
 
 USC researchers use AI to identify blood-based markers of Alzheimer's disease
 
USC researchers use AI to identify blood-based markers of Alzheimer's diseaseNearly 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. While age is the greatest risk factor for developing the disease, researchers believe most Alzheimer's cases occur as a result of complex interactions among genes and other factors. But those factors and the role they play are not known--yet.
