Study Asks Neurosurgeons: How Old Is Too Old to Perform Brain Surgery?

People sometimes joke that easy tasks are “not brain surgery.” But what happens when it actually is brain surgery? How old is too old to be a neurosurgeon? In a new Mayo Clinic Proceedings study, most neurosurgeons disagreed with an absolute age cutoff, but half favored additional testing for neurosurgeons 65 and older.

Legal Implications of Neuroscience Research – Harvard Review of Psychiatry Presents Update

New research on the biological basis of psychiatric disorders has important implications for legal proceedings as well as mental health treatment, according to a special issue on "Psychiatry, Neuroscience, and the Law," presented in the Harvard Review of Psychiatry. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.

Ibuprofen May Block Damage From Fetal-Alcohol Exposure

An anti-inflammatory drug may have the potential to stall the damaging effects of alcohol on the fetal brain, a new study suggests. Ibuprofen reduced neuroinflammation and behavioral signs of alcohol exposure in a rat model of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).

Head Games: Research Finds Injury From Contact Sport Has Harmful, Though Temporary Effect on Memory

_D__2958.jpg

McMaster University neuroscientists studying sports-related head injuries have found that it takes less than a full concussion to cause memory loss, possibly because even mild trauma can interrupt the production of new neurons in a region of the brain responsible for memory. Though such losses are temporary, the findings raise questions about the long-term effects of repeated injuries and the academic performance of student athletes.

Bioengineered Robotic Hand with Its Own Nervous System Will Sense Touch

Researchers are developing a first-of-its-kind bioengineered robotic hand that will actually feel and adapt to its environment. This “living” robot will have its own peripheral nervous system directly linking robotic sensors and actuators.

Quick! What's That Smell? Mammal Brains Identify Type of Scent Faster Than Once Thought

It takes less than one-tenth of a second — a fraction of the time previously thought — for the sense of smell to distinguish between one odor and another, new experiments in mice show.
