Blood vessels in the retina may be indicative of brain health years before the onset of dementia. The study found that younger people who score low on intelligence tests tend to be at a higher risk for poorer health… Read More
Tinnitus treatment retraining the brain may work to alleviate the ringing symptoms. Professor Michael Merzenich at UB San Francisco, not involved in the study, commented, “This work is the most clearheaded documentation to this point of what’s actually happening… Read More
Hearing difficulties in older people linked to changes in the attention processes in the brain. Researchers recorded the alpha waves in the brain of 20- to 30-year-olds and 60- to 70-year-olds while they performed a hearing task.
The participants listened… Read More

Irritable bowel syndrome is associated with independent brain-to-gut and gut-to-brain pathways, according to research. Researcher Dr. Nicholas J. Talley said, “This is an exciting time as the causes of IBS and other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) are slowly being… Read More
Being overweight or obese has been tied to a number of negative health outcomes already, so it’s of little surprise that the latest findings have uncovered yet another side effect of obesity – it’s bad for your brain. The findings… Read More
Hearing loss in elderly is linked to brain atrophy, according to the study findings. The researchers detected accelerating gray matter atrophy in auditory areas of the brain in patients with mild hearing loss. Declining hearing ability also meant an increase… Read More
