According to new research, listening to fast music when exercising keeps the heart rate up and the fatigue to a minimum.
Using mice, scientists have gained a better understanding of the therapeutic benefits of flickering light exposure for Alzheimer’s disease.
New research in mice finds that histamine protects the heart and kidneys in cardiorenal syndrome.
Scientists have found that a technique for targeting a specific group of brain cells associated with Parkinson’s disease is also effective at treating a separate group of brain cells.
Just 20 minutes of exercise is as good as a coffee for our working memory, according to a new, first-of-its-kind study.
Recent innovations in microscopy and other fields could help researchers better understand a type of receptor in the body — potentially leading to more effective treatments for type 2 diabetes.
Scientists have discovered that the use of two experimental osteoarthritis drugs in combination significantly reduces arthritis in rats.
A new study in mice concludes that light-sensitive proteins on fat cells can detect sunlight. It also finds that too little natural light can alter how fat cells behave and may increase the risk of metabolic syndrome.
Some recent studies in rodents have suggested that lithium may help treat Alzheimer’s disease. A new study in rats adds to this evidence, showing that a microdose of the compound can halt the progression of this neurodegenerative condition, even in its later stages.
