Researchers are reporting that multiple sclerosis (MS) patients may see an improvement in working memory and brain connectivity through magnetic stimulation. This magnetic stimulation is known as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), and it has been reported to help rebuild… Read More
High stress activity in the brain may indicate a future risk of heart attack and stroke, according to new research. Ahmed Tawakol of Massachusetts General Hospital coauthored the recent study, which found that those with a higher level of activity… Read More
In case you’ve missed any of this week’s health news articles, check them out in this week’s roundup. This week, we discussed lacunar stroke, silent stroke, yoga for healthy kidneys, and blood clots in the brain.
We talked about causes,… Read More
National Obesity Awareness Week runs from January 9 through January 15, 2017 and to wrap it up we present some of our articles that discuss obesity and related health issues, such as sleep problems, cirrhosis, and liver cancer.
Obesity is… Read More
A recent study found that older adults who consumed healthy foods had the so-called crystallized intelligence, the ability to use their skills and knowledge acquired over lifetime. The researchers discovered that a pigment commonly found in dark leafy greens, as… Read More
In multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, brain shrinkage is associated with hemoglobin leakage from the damaged red blood cells. The researchers found that treatments that lower hemoglobin levels actually slowed down MS disease progression. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood… Read More
Stroke recovery can be improved with a new treatment that creates new nerve synapses – essential for learning – in the brain. Researcher Marcela Pekna explained, “More nerve sprouts and connections between nerve cells are created so that the… Read More
All of us have clotting factors in our body to make sure that we don’t bleed to death if we cut ourselves, but under certain circumstances people can experience blood clots in the brain and that can be life-threatening.

Cognition and brain structure can be affected by dysglycemia – blood glucose abnormalities – in older adults. The researchers conducted a cross-sectional and longitudinal cohort study, examining the association of dysglycemia with cognitive function.
The researchers found that dysglycemia correlated… Read More
A protein associated with Parkinson’s disease and dementia has been found to be capable of travelling from the brain to the gut through a specific pathway. The discovery gives insight into the progression of these disorders. The protein – alpha-synuclein… Read More
Older adults who stick to Mediterranean diet show less cerebral atrophy (brain volume loss). However, contrary to previous studies, the researchers did not find that eating more fish and less red meat was associated with changes in the brain.
The… Read More
Insomnia may cause dysfunction in specific brain regions, according to research findings. In the largest study of its kind, researchers identified differences in brain activity between states of sleep and wakefulness in 44 insomnia patients and 40 participants who had… Read More
