Dementia is a common illness with an incidence that is rising as the aged population increases.  A multitude of neurodegenerative illnesses have an associated dementia, including corticobasal degeneration, Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, … Continue Reading Brain map researchers release first of it’s kind data on the aging human brain and traumatic brain injury.

Human study identifies genetic variation for type and rate of physical decline Parkinson’s disease.

With Parkinson’s disease clinicians have long noted that the presence of tremors, rather than balance and walking problems is the initial or dominant symptom and hypothesize this may even suggest … Continue Reading Human study identifies genetic variation for type and rate of physical decline Parkinson’s disease.

Neuroimaging shows genetics and environment affect different regions of brain.

It is known that glucose is an essential fuel for brain energy metabolism as well as oxygen.  Functional activation of neurons is normally associated with increases in the local cerebral … Continue Reading Neuroimaging shows genetics and environment affect different regions of brain.
