Do You Know What Your Mother Did When She Was Young?

A study of brain function in young, memory-deficient mice reveals that a stimulating environment improves not only their memory but also the memory of their memory-deficient offspring. If this improvement also occurs in humans, a mother's youthful experiences may help shape her children's ability to learn.

What Your Mother Did When She Was a Child May Have an Effect On Your Memory and Learning Ability

A new study by researchers from Rush University Medical Center and Tufts University School of Medicine using mice indicate that a child's memory and the severity of learning disorders may be affected by what his or her mother did when she was a child. Findings from the study will be published in the February 4th issue of The Journal of Neuroscience.

Put a Freeze on Winter Sports Injuries: Don't Risk your Neck for a Fleeting Moment of Fun

Sledding.jpg

Every winter there are tragic stories about children and adults who suffer life-altering and even fatal sports-related accidents. The AANS offers this advice: Don't risk your neck for that fleeting moment of fun, because it takes only one moment for a life to change forever. Wear a helmet and follow other safety precautions to help put a freeze on winter sports injuries.

Have Numbness, Pain or Muscle Weakness? Guidelines Identify Best Tests for Neuropathy

New guidelines developed by the American Academy of Neurology find a combination of blood tests and other specialized assessments appear to be the most helpful tests for finding the cause of neuropathy. Also known as neuritis or distal symmetric polyneuropathy, this common nerve problem affects people of all ages. The guidelines are published in the December 3, 2008, online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Neurological Health Risk in Children with Blunt Head Injuries: Fashion Hair Beads

Injury from blunt trauma by common household objects carries the potential for significant morbidity and mortality. Fashion hair accessories present a hidden and often overlooked health risk in children who have suffered blunt head trauma, significant enough to cause skull fractures and complicate diagnosis and treatment.

Researchers Define Ideal Time for Stem Cell Collection for Parkinson's Disease Therapy

Researchers have identified a stage during dopamine neuron differentiation that may be an ideal time to collect human embryonic stem cells for transplantation to treat Parkinson's disease, according to data presented at Neuroscience 2008, the 38th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.

Patients with Chiari Type 1 Malformation and Syringomyelia Often Told "It's all in Your Head"

According to the AANS, Chiari malformation can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms mimic several other conditions, and as a result, patients are often told that there is no physical problem. Chiari malformation is indeed a physical condition and getting a proper diagnosis is the first step on the path to finding treatment that may provide hope and relief.
