Abstract

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of cardiovascular and metabolic abnormalities that together may increase the risk of developing cognitive decline and dementia; however, the neural substrate is incompletely understood. We investigated cortical thickness in the medial temporal lobe...read more

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. It significantly increases the risk for cardiovascular and disease and type 2 diabetes. Increasing prevalence has been associated with the increasing rates of obesity worldwide. Here is the latest research on the metabolic syndrome.

Hippocampal Neurogenesis

Hippocampal neurogenesis is the formation of new neurons from neural progenitor cells in the dentate gyrus. This is important for behavioural responses, learning and memory. Here is the latest research on hippocampal neurogenesis.

Stem Cells & Neuroimmunology

The use of stem cells is being explored as a treatment option for neuroimmune disorders. The immune system has been demonstrated to have negative impacts on cognitive function and neurogenesis and is a potential target for therapeutic intervention. Discover the latest research on stem cells and neuroimmunology.

Congenital Brain Malformations

Congenital brain malformations are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients younger than 2 years. Discover the latest research on congenital brain malformations here.

Neurocognition and Behaviour

This feed focuses on neurobehavioral manifestations, neurocognitive development, and cognition disorders. Here is the latest research.

Extracellular Space: Brain

The extracellular space (ECS) in brain occupies approximately twenty percent of the brain volume and is dynamic and highly regulated. Here is the latest research on ECS in the brain.

Frontotemporal Dementia

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) refers to disorders caused by progressive neuronal loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research on FTD and FTD-associated disorders.

Memory: Long-Term

Memory refers to the encoding, storage, and retrieval of information. Here is the latest research on aspects that underlie long-term memory formation and loss.
