Brain Research: College studies may reduce risk of dementia for older adult ♦ Detailing global brain disorders research agenda ♦ College studies may reduce risk of dementia for older adults,

Hallucinations linked to differences in brain structure People diagnosed with schizophrenia who are prone to hallucinations are likely to have structural differences in a key region of the brain compared to both healthy individuals and people diagnosed with schizophrenia who do not hallucinate;
Modulating brain's stress circuitry might prevent alzheimer's disease In a novel animal study design that mimicked human clinical trials, researchers report that long-term treatment using a small molecule drug that reduces activity of the brain's stress circuitry significantly reduces Alzheimer's disease (AD) neuropathology and prevents onset of cognitive impairment in a mouse model of the neurodegenerative condition.
Detailing global brain disorders research agenda The breadth and complexity of brain and nervous system disorders make them some of the most difficult conditions to diagnose and treat, especially in the developing world, where there are few resources. An NIH-led collaboration of more than 40 scientists has studied these complex issues that occur across the lifespan and today published a supplement to the journal Nature that lays out a research strategy to address them.
College studies may reduce risk of dementia for older adults, Older adults who take college courses may increase their cognitive capacity and possibly reduce their risk for developing Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia
