» Reverse effects of trauma? Older brain cells linger unexpectedly before their death
28/03/24 15:02 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
Researchers report that mature oligodendrocytes -- the central nervous system cells critical for brain function -- cling to life following a fatal trauma for much, much longer than scientists knew. The findings suggest a new pathway for ...

» Could AI play a role in locating damage to the brain after stroke?
27/03/24 22:25 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
Artificial intelligence (AI) may serve as a future tool for neurologists to help locate where in the brain a stroke occurred. In a new study, AI processed text from health histories and neurologic examinations to locate lesions in the br...

» Making long-term memories requires nerve-cell damage
27/03/24 16:48 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
Just as you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs, scientists have found that you can't make long-term memories without DNA damage and brain inflammation.

» Study finds high prevalence of hidden brain changes in people with heart disease
26/03/24 21:01 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
A new analysis involving over 13,000 people has found changes to blood vessels in the brain that can increase the risk of stroke and dementia are common in people with a range of heart conditions, regardless of whether they have experien...

» The power of neighbors: Neighboring synapses shape learning and memory
21/03/24 19:54 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
A researcher has developed a new model that provides a holistic view on how our brain manages to learn quickly and forms stable, long-lasting memories. Their study sheds light on the crucial role of interactions among neighboring contact...

» Research offers hope for preventing post-COVID 'brain fog' by targeting brain's blood vessels
21/03/24 19:48 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
Researchers have identified a mechanism that causes neurological problems in mice infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19. The researchers also found a treatment that helped prevent these changes.

» Blast-related concussions linked to higher Alzheimer's risk
14/03/24 01:02 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
U.S. veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq who suffered mild traumatic brain injury from exposure to explosive blasts were found to have changes in cerebrospinal fluid proteins that are typically seen in people who develop Alzheim...

» Does iron accumulate in brain after concussions?
07/03/24 16:07 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
People who have headaches after experiencing concussions may also be more likely to have higher levels of iron in areas of the brain, which is a sign of injury to brain cells, according to a preliminary study released today, March 5, 202...

» Immune genes are altered in Alzheimer's patients' blood
09/02/24 21:34 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
A new study has found the immune system in the blood of Alzheimer's patients is epigenetically altered. That means the patients' behavior or environment has caused changes that affect the way their genes work. Many of these altered immun...

» Immune response, not acute viral infections, responsible for neurological damage, study finds
05/02/24 21:59 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
For years, there has been a long-held belief that acute viral infections like Zika or COVID-19 are directly responsible for neurological damage, but researchers have now discovered that it's the immune system's response that is behind it.

» Scientists discover a potential way to repair synapses damaged in Alzheimer's disease
01/02/24 17:18 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
While newly approved drugs for Alzheimer's show some promise for slowing the memory-robbing disease, the current treatments fall far short of being effective at regaining memory.

» Researchers find enzyme plays much larger role in preventing neurodegenerative diseases
31/01/24 23:34 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
Axon damage is an early sign of neurodegenerative diseases like, ALS, Alzheimer's, Huntington's and Parkinson's. Researchers found that nicotinamide nucleotide adenylyl transferase 2, or NMNAT2, can play an important role in keeping axon...

» Firing nerve fibers in the brain are supplied with energy on demand
31/01/24 19:44 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
To rapidly transmit electrical signals in the brain, the long nerve fibers are insulated by specialized cells called oligodendrocytes. These cells also respond to the electrical signals of active nerve fibers and provide them with energy...

» Using magnetized neurons to treat Parkinson's disease symptoms
18/01/24 20:07 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
Electrical deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a well-established method for treating disordered movement in Parkinson's disease. However, implanting electrodes in a person's brain is an invasive and imprecise way to stimulate nerve cells. R...

» Amnesia caused by head injury reversed in early mouse study
16/01/24 18:20 from ScienceDaily: Brain Injury News
A mouse study designed to shed light on memory loss in people who experience repeated head impacts, such as athletes, suggests the condition could potentially be reversed. The research in mice finds that amnesia and poor memory following...
