In an important first step towards better diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia, researchers have found that there are eight different types of the brain disorder, and not a single type, as earlier thought.
A vaccine that researchers developed to fight a fatal brain disorder in animals also holds promise for similar brain infections among humans.
Blocking a protein that acts like switch to wake us up may help prevent Alzheimer's disease, new research has found, pointing towards a new target to prevent this devastating brain disorder.
In the early stages of brain growth, a disturbance like a premature birth could affect its neuro-circuitry, leading to a higher risk of neurological disorders, says a new research.
Offering a ray of hope for people who are experiencing symptoms of psychosis, a blood test may help identify if they are at the risk of developing serious brain disorders later in life.
A loss of cells in the retina is one of the earliest signs of a form of dementia in people with a genetic risk for the brain disorder - even before any changes appear in their behaviour, says a study.
Indian scientist Dr. Saumya Jamuar recently used a novel technique called "targeted high-coverage sequencing" in order to discover hidden genetic causes of brain disorders.
Researchers have revealed that that it takes more mutations to trigger autism in women than in men, which may explain why men are four times more likely to have the disorder.
Researchers in the US say they have developed a prototype blood test that can tell with 90 percent accuracy whether a healthy person will develop Alzheimer`s disease within three years.

Parkinson`s disease drug called benztropine, was highly effective in treating a standard model of multiple sclerosis.
Researchers have suggested that Parkinson`s disease can be diagnosed at an early stage by comparing the handwriting of sick and healthy subjects.
A study has found that degeneration of the fornix in relation to cognition was detectable even earlier than changes in the hippocampus.
Researchers have suggested that the cell transplants could be used to treat schizophrenia.
