Researchers are learning more about the mysteries of brain cancer
Brain cancer is one of the most serious types of cancer a person can develop. It is also extremely difficult to study. This has limited advances in treatment for some time. Now, however, there’s a little more reason for optimism, according to one researcher and a patient.
Subgroup of psychotic patients at high risk of becoming violent, researchers believe
In the aftermath of murder and violence, a perpetrator’s mental state – whether they are psychotic or have psychopathic traits – is commonly discussed. New Norwegian brain research may indicate that both are sometimes at play.
We should spend more time studying successful psychopaths, says forensic psychiatrist Randi Rosenqvist
Upon retiring, forensic psychiatrist Randi Rosenqvist talks to ScienceNorway.no about abnormalities in the brains of psychopaths, how it would be interesting to study successful psychopaths, and why she doesn’t actually like the term psychopaths.
Neuroscientists cultivate mini-versions of human brains in the lab. Could they become conscious?
An American brain researcher warns that we may already be "perilously close" to crossing ethical boundaries. At the same time, research on so-called mini-brains can provide great opportunities to unlock some disease mysteries.
Breathing can affect the cleansing of the brain
Breathing rhythms affect how well spinal fluid flows in and around the brain, a new study shows. Cerebrospinal fluid plays an important role in flushing metabolic waste products from the brain. The finding may have an impact on brain diseases such as Alzheimer's.
