Neurons that produce dopamine

Source: Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Summary: Researchers shed light on how the human brain rapidly forms new memories, providing insights into potential new treatments for memory disorders. Dopamine neurons degrade in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, which in addition to motor symptoms is often also accompanied by cognitive issues such as memory problems.Read More →

Unscientific self-evaluation

Source: University of Texas at Dallas Summary: Researchers suggests that subjective complaints about poor memory performance, especially in people over 60, could be a useful early marker for the onset of mild cognitive decline, which sometimes foreshadows Alzheimer’s disease. Subjective memory is a person’s unscientific self-evaluation of how good his or herRead More →

colour vision deficiency

Source: University of Birmingham Summary: Researchers have developed a contact lens that may help people with colour blindness simply by using a low-cost dye. Colour blindness or colour vision deficiency (CVD) is an inherited genetic ocular disorder where some people have difficulty distinguishing certain colours. While no cure for this disorder exists,Read More →

gene expression to process electrochemical information

Source: Harvard Medical School Summary: Researchers reported that bits of a neuron’s activity record can be reconstructed by analyzing its gene expression pattern the particular genes that are active in the cell. From burning your palm on a hot pan handle to memorizing the name of a new acquaintance, anytime you experience something, yourRead More →
