Autism Symptoms Improve After Fecal Transplant: Small Study

Children with autism may benefit from fecal transplants - a method of introducing donated healthy microbes into people with gastrointestinal disease to rebalance the gut, a new study has found.

The research will appear in Microbiome.

Noninvasive Ultrasound Pulses Used to Precisely Tweak Rat Brain Activity

Biomedical engineers at Johns Hopkins report they have worked out a noninvasive way to release and deliver concentrated amounts of a drug to the brain of rats in a temporary, localized manner using ultrasound. The method first "cages" a drug inside tiny, biodegradable "nanoparticles," then activates its release through precisely targeted sound waves, such as those used to painlessly and noninvasively create images of internal organs.

The research is in Nano Letters. (full access paywall)

Balance May Rely on Timing of Movement

The fish make good models to understand human balance because they use similar brain circuits, say the study authors. The researchers hope their work will one day help therapists to better treat balance problems that affect one in three aging Americans, and for whom falls are a leading cause of death.

The research is in Current Biology. (full open access)

Better Early Nutrition Means Better Brains

Pediatric nutrition research has shown the important effects of early-life nutrition on a baby’s development—especially the gastrointestinal tract—and more recent research indicates that nutrition may also have an influence on an infant’s brain as it develops.

The research is in Advances in Nutrition. (full access paywall)

A Brain Wide Chemical Signal That Enhances Memory

The new discoveries indicate how current drugs used in the treatment of Alzheimer's, designed to boost this chemical signal, counter the symptoms of dementia. The results could also lead to new ways of enhancing cognitive function to counteract the effects of diseases such as Alzheimer's and schizophrenia, as well as enhancing memory in healthy people.

The research will appear in Cell Reports.

Pinpointing Fetal Cells Vulnerable to Later Life Stress

Researchers have developed a way to identify cells damaged prior to birth by drugs, radiation, or poisons such as mercury that survive but are more vulnerable to stress later in life. This model system can possibly explain the increased risk of some cells in adult onset of psychiatric disorders, liver disease, and other stress-induced diseases.

The research will appear in PNAS.

I love reading and learning however I will not click on any more links after what happened to me yesterday and before I got to figure out who what and where are these viruses and malicious... I will be removing a lot that I learn from home Google+ I'll go to the library they have better software protection than I do.

I believe if you do productive work where brain use is almost maximized and being constantly on the move, your brain should not have to suffer and such symptoms are to experiencing but it should also not to be stressed either.

Nicotine Normalizes Brain Activity Deficits That Are Key to Schizophrenia

A steady stream of nicotine normalizes genetically-induced impairments in brain activity associated with schizophrenia, according to new research involving the University of Colorado Boulder. The finding sheds light on what causes the disease and why those who have it tend to smoke heavily.

Changes in Blood-Brain Barrier and Intestinal Permeability Found in People With Autism

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has the dubious distinction of being the fastest-growing developmental disability in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With 1 in every 68 children born in this country diagnosed with ASD, parents are looking everywhere for answers about best treatments. Along with selective medication to treat certain symptoms, traditional treatments include intensive behavioral approaches. But with no "one-size-fits-all" treatment approach, parents often turn to diverse complementary and alternative therapies.
