A once-weekly three-minute exposure to long-wave deep red light activates mitochondria in the retina, helping to naturally boost declining vision.
People with untreated depression have lower levels of mitochondrial proteins. For those who responded to the SSRI antidepressants, the proteins returned to a normal level, but showed no increase in those who did not respond to medication.
Rare variants of the autism-associated ANK2 gene alter the architecture and organization of neurons, potentially contributing to autism and neurodevelopmental comorbidities.
Entrainment can safely manipulate brain waves to induce improvements in memory, a new study reveals.
People from cultures that frequently engage in conflicts with other cultures tend to play more cooperative games than competitive ones. However, in cultures where there are frequent conflicts within their own communities, there is a greater tendency to…
