Though tremors are quite common, your mind can quickly go into panic mode. Could this be Parkinson’s disease?
Most cysts, especially cysts in the brain, are congenital. Sometimes, a cyst in the brain can develop as a response to an infection, injury, or cancer.
Researchers have found a novel form of the Alzheimer's protein tau in the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This form of tau -- known as MTBR tau -- indicates what stage of Alzheimer's a person is in and tracks with tangles of tau protein in the brain.
Many people complain about winter, but it can be a particularly challenging time for those who live with chronic conditions.
Absence seizures, previously known as petit mal seizures, are a type of epilepsy. They occur due to brief periods of abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
A research team has developed a diagnostic tool for the rare neurological disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The study used the patented immuno-infrared sensor to analyze folding changes of proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of ALS patients after specific binding.
People hospitalized with COVID-19 and neurological problems including stroke and confusion, have a higher risk of dying than other COVID-19 patients, according to a new study. These findings have the potential to identify and focus treatment efforts on individuals most at risk and could decrease COVID-19 deaths.
We already know there are a number of neurological complications that can be caused or complicated by COVID-19 and evidence now suggest that seizures could be another one of those issues.
Relief often comes in the form of ibuprofen or a prescription rescue medication, but did you know there are natural, drug-free ways to fight (and prevent!) those crippling migraine headaches, too?
A preclinical study by neuroscientists indicates that an antigen-presenting dendritic vaccine with a specific antibody response to oligomeric A-beta may be safer and offer clinical benefit in treating Alzheimer's disease. The vaccine uses immune cells known as dendritic cells loaded with a modified A beta peptide as the antigen.
