KEYWORD

neurobiology

UCI neurobiologists aim to identify biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers hope to develop brain imaging tools for pre-symptomatic diagnosis

Research A to Z

Life-changing undergraduate opportunity lets students explore, invent and experiment with everything from robotic coats to a video game of the human digestive tract

Selective retention of positive information may be marker for elderly memory loss

UCI group develops test to measure changes in emotional recall over time

Stroke of the Future

In 20 years, stem cells, genetics and robotics will get patients back on their feet after a blood clot in the brain

Blocking inflammation prevents cell death, improves memory in Alzheimer’s disease

UCI mouse study points to new treatments to limit effects of neurological disorder

Body’s immune system may play larger role in Alzheimer’s disease than thought

UCI mouse study finds dramatic increase in brain plaques when key cells are lacking

Is stroke prevention taking a back seat to stroke treatment?

Three-fourths of ER stroke cases had some degree of preventability, UCI survey finds

Playing 3-D video games can boost memory formation, UCI study finds

Results suggest novel approaches to maintaining cognition as we age

UCI neurobiologists restore youthful vigor to adult brains

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. The same can be said of the adult brain. Its connections are hard to change, while in children, novel experiences rapidly mold new connections during critical periods of brain development.
