‘Cognitive devices and other new technologies are very progressive’Professor Jurg Kesselring, Member of committee of Red Cross said, when we talk about neurorehabilitation, we are focusing on neuroplasticity of the brain. “We need to understand that neuroplasticity keeps happening in the brain, until death,” said Kesselring. He added, “These changes of the brain can be improved by acute therapy and that is what […]

Lateral sleeping position influences clean-up of brain’s metabolic waste products, halts neurological diseases

Sleeping in lateral position is most popular in human and most animals and it most efficiently clears our brain of the metabolic waste products

Lateral sleeping position influences clean-up of brain’s metabolic waste products, halts neurological diseasesWhen we all go to bed, we tend to sleep on our back, side, stomach, or assume the fetal position. Our body posture when we sleep can influence our personality, well-being, and even our brain health. According to a recent study published in the The Journal of Neuroscience, sleeping on our side rather than our […]

Want to cut down on excess sodium? Try something spicy

 If you add some spices to your cooking, you can cook food that tastes good without using as much salt. Though habit and preference matter when it comes to spicy food, but even a small, gradual increase in spices in your food may have a health benefit

Want to cut down on excess sodium? Try something spicyConsuming too much salt is known to be bad for you. And according to a study recently covered by Medical News Today, too much sodium can significantly increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, and the mineral — which is usually derived from salt — can double the risk of heart failure.

Forgetting things is not just normal, it actually makes us smarter

You know those people who always boast about having a perfect memory? Maybe they shouldn't, because having total recall is totally overrated. That's according to a new paper in the journal Neuron, which concludes that forgetting things is not just normal, it actually makes us smarter

Forgetting things is not just normal, it actually makes us smarter“It’s important that the brain forgets irrelevant details and instead focuses on the stuff that’s going to help make decisions in the real world,” says Richards, an associate fellow in the Learning in Machines and Brains program. In the new report, researchers Paul Frankland and Blake Richards of the University of Toronto propose that the […]

Alzheimer’s progression can be eased when we disrupt this particular protein

Alzheimer's is characterized by an accumulation of amyloid plaques between nerve cells. Amyloid is a protein found in healthy brains. In Alzheimer's, however, the protein is folded incorrectly, creating a form known as beta-amyloid, which is toxic to brain cells

Alzheimer’s progression can be eased when we disrupt this particular proteinInhibiting an interaction between two specific proteins may be a new way to target dementia. A recent study using a fruit fly model could help to design a way of slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. An estimated 1 in 3 seniors dies with one form of dementia. Affecting more than 5 […]

Neurodevelopmental disorders in children: Solution for parents

Neurodevelopmental disorders are characterised by developmental deficits that usually show up early in a child’s development, many times before the child enters elementary school, and can run throughout the individual’s lifetime.
