'Face blindness' may involve a failed brain network, and could shed light on autism

Boston Children's Hospital

People with prosopagnosia, or "face blindness," have trouble recognizing faces -- even those of close friends and family members. It often causes serious social problems, although some people can compensate by using clothing and other cues.

Newswise: FSU research: Ketamine could help men suffering from alcohol use disorder

FSU research: Ketamine could help men suffering from alcohol use disorder

Florida State University

Research from Florida State University is giving physicians a better understanding of ketamine, a potentially useful tool in treating depression that still has unanswered questions. A team of researchers working in the laboratory of Mohamed Kabbaj, a professor of Biomedical Sciences and Neuroscience in the College of Medicine, showed that ketamine can decrease alcohol consumption in male rats that previously had consumed high amounts of alcohol when given unrestricted access several times a week.

Brain Guard

American Technion Society

Israeli researchers have developed new technology for transporting drugs within silicon nanostructures to the brain. These nanostructures release an essential protein, which can inhibit the development of Alzheimer's disease, and provide targeted delivery in the brain with the use of a “gene gun.”

Newswise: Mechanism connects early binge drinking to adult behaviors

Mechanism connects early binge drinking to adult behaviors

University of Illinois at Chicago

Intermittent exposure to high levels of alcohol in adolescent animals leads to increased levels of microRNA-137 in the brains of adults; blocking the molecule helps to reverse or reduce the lasting effects of youth drinking, such as increased alcohol use and anxiety.

Side effects mild, brief with single antidepressant dose of intravenous ketamine

NIH, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

National Institutes of Health researchers found that a single, low-dose ketamine infusion was relatively free of side effects for patients with treatment-resistant depression. Elia Acevedo-Diaz, M.D., Carlos Zarate, M.D., and colleagues at the NIH's National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) report their findings in the Journal of Affective Disorders.
