Native Hawaiians at Higher Risk of Hemorrhagic Stroke at Younger Age

Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders may be at higher risk for hemorrhagic stroke at a younger age and more likely to have diabetes compared to other ethnicities, according to a study released today that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 63rd Annual Meeting in Honolulu April 9 to April 16, 2011.

Abnormal Control of Hand Movements May Hint at ADHD Severity in Children

Measurements of hand movement control may help determine the severity of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, according to joint studies published in the February 15, 2011, print issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. ADHD is a brain disorder characterized by impulsiveness, hyperactivity, such as not being able to sit still, and inattention or difficulty staying focused.

NIH Study Finds Two Pesticides Associated with Parkinson’s Disease

New research shows a link between use of two pesticides, rotenone and paraquat, and Parkinson’s disease. People who used either pesticide developed Parkinson’s disease approximately 2.5 times more often than non-users.

“Brainworks”: with Phantom Skulls, Model Spines and Foam Heads, Middle School Students Will Practice Surgery, Suturing

Brain surgery takes much more skill than properly placing sutures in a foam skull, but aspiring doctors have to start somewhere, as 140 seventh- and eighth-grade students will learn at the annual “Brainworks” event at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Friday, Feb. 18. Cedars-Sinai’s program seeks to encourage early interest in neuroscience.

Eating Berries May Lower Risk of Parkinson’s

New research shows men and women who regularly eat berries may have a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, while men may also further lower their risk by regularly eating apples, oranges and other sources rich in dietary components called flavonoids. The study was released today and will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 63rd Annual Meeting in Honolulu April 9 to April 16, 2011.

Researchers Find Reduced Levels of an Important Neurotransmitter in MS

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago show for the first time that damage to a particular area of the brain and a consequent reduction in noradrenaline are associated with multiple sclerosis.
