Sleep Apnea During REM Has a Relation to Memory Loss.

Summary: Sleep apnea events during REM sleep are linked to verbal memory impairment in older adults at risk for Alzheimer’s disease. The research highlights the importance of focusing on sleep-stage-specific apnea severity for accurate diagnosis and treatment.Women were found to have more REM-related apnea events, potentially increasing their Alzheimer’s risk....

No Inside Voice? Its Impact on Memory is Revealed in a New Study

Summary: A new study found that some people lack an inner voice, termed “anendophasia,” impacting their verbal memory and rhyme recognition. Participants without an inner voice struggled more with these tasks compared to those with an inner voice.The study highlights the unique cognitive strategies used by individuals with anendophasia. Future...

New Technique Shows Rapid Aging in Alzheimer’s Mind Cells

Summary: Neuroengineers discovered that certain brain cells age faster than others, particularly in Alzheimer’s patients. Using a new technique called MUSIC, they identified distinct aging patterns in brain cells and sex-specific differences in aging.These findings could lead to targeted therapies for Alzheimer’s. The study offers new insights into the molecular...

COVID- 19 May Damage Vision

Summary: Researchers discovered that SARS-CoV-2 can penetrate the blood-retinal barrier, potentially causing long-term eye damage. The study found that the virus induces a hyperinflammatory response and cell death in the retina.This breakthrough emphasizes the importance of monitoring eye health in COVID-19 patients. The findings could lead to new therapies for...

Mini- Neurons from Stem Cells Provide Hope for Alzheimer’s Treatment

Summary: Researchers developed tiny “mini-brains” from stem cells to help diagnose and treat Alzheimer’s disease. These mini-brains, created from human blood, accurately reflect the pathology of Alzheimer’s on a smaller scale. This innovative technology could revolutionize healthcare, especially for remote communities, by providing a simpler way to diagnose neurological conditions.Key...

Average Is n’t Always Attractive: New Voice Perception Insights

Summary: A new study challenges the belief that average-sounding voices are always more attractive. Researchers found that pitch, rather than averageness, plays a crucial role in vocal attractiveness.This study used advanced voice morphing technology to create average-sounding voices for participants to rate. The findings suggest that unique voice characteristics can...

Autism symptoms may be lowered by the disease effect.

Summary: Researchers are exploring how fever can temporarily improve autism symptoms. They aim to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms behind this “fever effect” to develop therapies that mimic it.Their research focuses on the immune molecule IL-17a, which has shown promise in animal studies. By creating a biobank of samples...

Goals Dull: The Emotional Memories ‘ Stress

Summary: Dreaming helps prioritize and diminish the severity of emotionally charged memories. Participants who reported dreaming had better recall and were less reactive to negative images.The research suggests that dreams actively transform emotional responses by reducing next-day emotional reactivity. This could lead to interventions that enhance dreaming to aid emotional...
