Discouragement of physical activity, low food quality, and increased consumption of calories from trans-fatty acids, which are often prevalent in disadvantaged neighbourhood, can disrupt the brain's ability to process information flexibly, according to a latest study.
A groundbreaking study conducted by Monash University suggests that a mother's dietary choices during early pregnancy may have far-reaching effects on the brain health of not only her child but also her grandchildren. The research, which utilized genetic models using roundworms (Caenorhabditis elegans), identified specific foods that could potentially safeguard against brain function deterioration.
A recent study conducted by UCLA Health suggests that Kundalini yoga, a form of yoga focusing on breathing, meditation, and mental visualization, may offer benefits to older women at risk of Alzheimer's disease. The research, led by Dr. Helen Lavretsky at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behaviour, found that Kundalini yoga increased brain connectivity in areas impacted by stress and associated with memory decline. These findings add to the growing evidence supporting the potential positive impact of yoga on brain health.
A case of a rare brain infection caused by a free-living amoeba in contaminated waters has been reported in Kerala, India. Learn about primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), its symptoms, and the severe nature of the disease. Discover the risks associated with Naegleriafowleri, the amoeba responsible for the infection, and the importance of avoiding bathing in contaminated water.
A new study sheds light into a correlation between past climate changes and a reduction in the size of the human brain. In the new study, cognitive scientist Jeff Morgan Stibel analyzed climate records and human remains spanning a 50,000-year period to explore how humans have developed and adapted in response to environmental stress.
A recent study conducted by researchers in the Netherlands and the US has found that obesity impairs the brain's ability to detect fullness and feel satisfied after consuming sugar and fat.
In a first of its kind, surgeons successfully repaired a major malformation in the brain of a foetus. The surgeons from Boston Children's Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital in the US used a surgical technique called embolization to treat a rare prenatal condition. Called vein of Galen Malformation, the vascular abnormality permits blood to flow dangerously fast through part of the brain after the child is born.
