Stanford scientists have conducted a proof-of-concept experiment in mice that shows they can use blood stem cells to treat a severe brain disease.
Researchers have identified five types of concussions, which have different symptoms and initial treatments. All can disturb sleep.
After a bike crash, Anthony Macchio-Young undergoes emergency neurosurgery at Stanford. But that's only the beginning of his journey to recovery.
Scientists at Stanford have identified a gene key to the formation of a type of toxic protein in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease.
The real question a new study suggests, isn't why some people occasionally experience hallucinations: It's why all of us aren't hallucinating all the time.
Stanford researchers develop a simplified method for decoding electrical activity in the brain, which could lead in the future to improved prosthetics.
Selectively subduing a set of cells that migrate to the brain after a stroke occurs could meaningfully treat the stroke even days later.
A new Stanford neuroscience study reveals that creativity can slump or bump between ages 8 and 10, depending on the individual.
Old mice suffered far fewer senior moments on memory tests when Stanford investigators disabled a single molecule dotting the mice’s cerebral blood vessels.
A Stanford study shows Pokémon expertise developed during childhood activates the brain region that processes information from the center of the retina.
Using a lab model, Stanford researchers identified a type of developing brain cell that is profoundly changed by exposure to low oxygen levels.
PTSD patients who do not respond to exposure therapy may have a disruption in a part of the brain known as the ventral attention network.
Brain cells called microglia keep brains young by eliminating accumulations of protein debris. But their garbage-colllection ability fades with age.
Each time you get a reward, your brain's internal spatial map warps just a bit in a way that makes it easier for you to get back to wherever you got it.
Researching the symptoms and severity of concussions will help researchers get a more detailed understanding of concussions.
In most babies and kids, the sound of their mother's voice gets special treatment in the brain. But in autism, this distinctive brain response is lessened.
