Brain Fog Linked To Inflammatory Response

Inflammation appears to have a particular negative impact on the brain’s readiness to reach and maintain an alert state, according to scientists at the University of Birmingham in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam. “Scientists have long suspected a link between inflammation and cognition, but it is very difficult to be clear about the cause […]

Anti-inflammatory Agents Can Safely Suppress Major Depression Symptoms

Anti-inflammatory agents, such as aspirin/paracetamol, statins, and antibiotics, can safely and effectively curb the symptoms of major depression, finds a newly published meta-analysis of the available evidence. And the effects are even stronger when these agents are added on to standard antidepressant treatment, the results show. Around a third of people who are clinically depressed […]

Neuron-glia Trans Signaling Intervention Mediates Neurotoxicity In Parkinson’s Model

A new framework for understanding the pathology of Parkinson’s disease is provided by research from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. Working in two fruit fly models of Parkinson’s, researchers at the Buck Institute elucidated a novel molecular mechanism that orchestrates a harmful cascade of inflammatory signaling and demonstrated that its disruption protects neurons […]

Multidisciplinary Study Looks At Effects Of Environmental Factors On Astrocytes

Investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital have developed an approach to systematically and simultaneously evaluate the effects of hundreds of environmental factors on the development of neurological diseases. Through a series of investigations, the team has identified environmental factors that boost neurological inflammation, including an herbicide being used in the U.S. that is currently banned […]
