Researchers reviewed the clinical outcomes of two kinds of PET scans: a preliminary...

Individuals with social phobia have too much serotonin -- not too little



Individuals with social phobia have too much serotonin -- not too little Previous studies have led researchers to believe that individuals with social anxiety disorder/ social phobia have too low levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin. A new study carried out at Uppsala University, however, shows that the situation is exactly the opposite. Individuals with social phobia make too much serotonin. The more serotonin they produce, the more anxious they are in social situations. Many people...

Sleep may be a missing piece in the Alzheimer's disease puzzle.



Sleep may be a missing piece in the Alzheimer's disease puzzle. Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found compelling evidence that poor sleep -- particularly a deficit of the deep, restorative slumber needed to hit the save button on memories -- is a channel through which the beta-amyloid protein believed to trigger Alzheimer's disease attacks the brain's long-term memory. "Our findings reveal a new pathway through which Alzheimer's disease may cause memory decline...
