...a spike in insulin. While leptin activates biochemical reactions that send “satiety signals” to the brain, insulin can very effectively block these signals, resulting in no satiety, no sense of fullness, and uncontrolled eating of high fat, high sugar foods. This is leptin resistance, and leaves the brain “blind” to leptin signals, so it still thinks we’re hungry. Even worse, in healthy people, o...

Human brain actually has 86 billion neurons, not 100 billion, as previously thought, according to a Brazilian neuroscientist

...s, Dr. Suzana Herculano-Houzel found out the true figure in a rather grisly manner – by turning four brains into “brain soup” and counting the number of cell nuclei belonging to neurons. The brains belonged to four adult males aged 50, 51, 54 and 71 who donated them to science and none had died of a neurological disease. Dr. Suzana Herculano-Houzel told Nature: “We found that on average the human...

The brain uses sleep to wash away the waste toxins built up during a hard day's thinking

According to a new study, the brain uses sleep to wash away the waste toxins built up during a hard day’s thinking. The US team conducting the new research, believe the “waste removal system” is one of the fundamental reasons for sleep. Their study, published in the journal Science, showed brain cells shrink during sleep to open up the gaps between neurons and allow fluid to was...

Brain scans taken of pregnant women before and after giving birth showed an increase in their mid-brain after childbirth

A new research shows that the size of a woman’s brain grows after their baby is born with increased growth linked to the mother’s enthusiasm and affection for their child. Brain scans taken of pregnant women before and after giving birth showed an increase in their mid-brain after childbirth, according to the report completed at Yale University. “We observed small but significant incr...

Researchers at the University of Leicester uncovered how the build-up of proteins in mice with prion disease resulted in brain cells dying

0 38

British researchers have raised the tantalizing prospect of treating a range of brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, all with the same drug. In a study, published in Nature, researchers prevented brain cells dying in mice with prion disease. It is hoped the same method for preventing brain cell death could apply in other diseases. The findings are at an early stage, bu...

MRI brain scans showed changes in the white matter of the brain - the part that contains nerve fibres - in those classed as being web addicts, compared with non-addicts

0 92

A preliminary research suggests that web addiction is reflected in brain changes similar to those hooked on drugs or alcohol addiction. Experts in China scanned the brains of 17 young web addicts and found disruption in the way their brains were wired up. The researchers say the discovery, published in Plos One, could lead to new treatments for addictive behaviour. Internet addiction is a clinica...

In mice, prolonged lack of sleep led to 25% of certain brain cells dying, according to a study in The Journal of Neuroscience. If the same is true in humans, it may be futile to try to catch up on missed sleep, say scientists at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. They t...

Exercising in your 70’s may stop your brain from shrinking and showing the signs of ageing linked to dementia

Experts from Edinburgh University found that exercising in your 70’s may stop your brain from shrinking and showing the signs of ageing linked to dementia. Brain scans of 638 people past the age of retirement showed those who were most physically active had less brain shrinkage over a three-year period. Exercise did not have to be strenuous – going for a walk several times a week sufficed,...

Brain scans allow researchers to know exactly what a person is imagining

Brain scans have allowed researchers to know exactly what a person was imagining after scientists used them to decode images directly from the brain. Researchers have been able to put together what numbers people have seen, the memory a person is recalling, and even reconstruct videos of what a person has watched. “We are trying to understand the physical mechanisms that allow us to have an inner...

A surge of electrical activity in the brain could be responsible for the vivid experiences described by near-death survivors

Scientists discovered that a surge of electrical activity in the brain could be responsible for the vivid experiences described by near-death survivors. A study carried out on dying rats found high levels of brainwaves at the point of the animals’ demise. US researchers said that in humans this could give rise to a heightened state of consciousness. The research is published in the Proceedi...

Neuroscientists in Boston have asked to examine Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s brain to find some explanations for the marathon attacks

Neuroscientists in Boston have asked for a chance to examine Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s brain to try and find some explanations for the marathon attacks. Dr. Michael Craig Miller argued in the Boston Globe that Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s brain should be studied “as closely as our forensic experts have studied a few blocks along Boylston Street” – the scene of the double blasts on April 15. He works...

According to researchers at King’s College London, smoking “rots” the brain by damaging memory, learning and reasoning. A study of 8,800 people over 50 showed high blood pressure and being overweight also seemed to affect the brain, but to a lesser extent. Scientists involved said people needed to be aware that lifestyles could damage the mind as well as the body. Their study wa...
