...lements contain isoflavones, an estrogen-like compound. Isoflavones might be able to improve overall brain function, it has been thought. The hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls memory, is rich in estrogen beta receptors, and isoflavones can activate these receptors. Some women choose to take soy supplements as an alternative to estrogen. A previous study, published in a 2004 issue of...

iBrain, which was designed for sleep monitoring, may also be able to help people to convey messages merely by thinking them

iBrain, a new device invented by Dr. Philip Low, CEO of California-based NeuroVigil, which was designed for sleep monitoring, may also be able to help people to convey messages merely by thinking them. The gizmo “reads” brain wave patterns – and has been tested by renowned British physicist Professor Stephen Hawking, who is paralyzed by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease...

US scientist Prof. Philip Low is to unveil details of work on the brain patterns of Prof. Stephen Hawking which he says could help safeguard the physicist’s ability to communicate. Prof. Philip Low said he eventually hoped to allow Prof. Stephen Hawking to “write” words with his brain as an alternative to his current speech system which interprets cheek muscle movements. Prof. P...

A new research suggests that drinking cocoa every day may help older people keep their brains healthy. A study of 60 elderly people with no dementia found two cups of cocoa a day improved blood flow to the brain in those who had problems to start with. Those participants whose blood flow improved also did better on memory tests at the end of the study, the journal Neurology reported. Experts said...

A new research has find that an aspirin a day may slow brain decline in elderly women at high risk of cardiovascular disease. Around 500 at risk women, between the ages of 70 to 92, were tracked for five years – their mental capacity was tested at the start and end of the study. Those taking aspirin for the entire period saw their test scores fall much less than those who had not. The Swedi...

It meant messages could not travel from the brain to the legs, but the spinal cord was still in one piece. The researchers then tried to repair the damage.

An international research team has found that regularly smoking marijuana over a number of years can affect consumer’s short-term memory. Long-term smokers may notice that they cannot temporarily hold information in their heads, like a telephone number or the name of someone they have just met. The scientists claim that this common side effect occurs because the drug hinders a signaling mechanism...

The researchers showed that in the mutated mice the message was not being passed on from the hormones in the blood to the correct part of the brain. One of the researchers Prof. Baoji Xu said: “If there is a problem with the BDNF gene, neuro...

The sound of a crying baby is almost impossible to ignore, no matter how hard you try. Now scientists may have worked out why. They’ve shown that an infant’s wails rapidly pull at the heart-strings, in a way that other cries don’t. In fact, within just a blink of an eye, brain regions involved in processing emotions are hard at work. It had been thought that the brain was incapable of processing...

...r infections can damage taste for good It is well known that colds affect taste. This is because 90% of the flavor of food comes from our sense of smell (particles of food are breathed into the nose, hitting sensory cells that send an electric signal to the brain). If the nose is blocked, this is affected. But ear infections, too, can cause problems. “Repeated middle ear infections such as glue ea...

A bad sleep may be an early sign of Alzheimer’s if a study in mice also applies to people, say researchers. Clumps of protein, called plaques, in the brain are thought to be a key component of the illness. A study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, showed that when plaques first developed, the mice started having disrupted sleep. The hunt for early hints that someone...

Experts found that although chimps may be known as the brains of the animal kingdom, sometimes only dogs get the point. Scientists pointed at one of two objects, asked for it to be brought to them, and counted up how many times their orders were obeyed.
