Brain Research: Treatment to reduce dementia ♦ New light shed on brain's source of power ♦ New insight into how brain makes memories ♦ How to stop a stroke in its tracks

Researchers see promise in treatment to reduce dementia after TBI Researchers have been attempting to understand the cascade of events following mild head injury that may lead to an increased risk for developing a progressive degenerative brain disease, and their new study shows initial promise for a treatment that might interrupt the process that links the two conditions.
New light shed on brain's source of power New research represents a potentially fundamental shift in our understanding of how nerve cells in the brain generate the energy needed to function. The study shows neurons are more independent than previously believed and this research has implications for a range of neurological disorders.
New insight into how brain makes memories Researchers have identified the role that a key protein associated with autism and the co-occurrence of alcohol dependency and depression plays in forming the spines that create new connections in the brain

How to stop a stroke in its tracks New minimally invasive surgical devices called stentrievers are enabling brain surgeons to stop strokes in their tracks.
