There hasn’t been much good news about Alzheimer’s lately, between the March announcement by Biogen and Esai that a promising trial of a potential drug treatment failed, and the July decision by Novartis and Amgen to stop their study of another class of therapies for the neurodegenerative disease.

AbstractMouse models of rare monogenic forms of migraine provide a unique experimental system to study the cellular and circuit mechanisms of the primary brain dysfunctions causing a migraine disorder. Here, we discuss the migraine-relevant phenotypes and the migraine-relevant functional alterations in the brain of five genetic mouse models of migraine, four of which carry mutations derived from patients with familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) and the fifth carry a mutation from patients with both phenotypically normal MA and familial advanced sleep phase syndrome (FASPS). We focus on the latter mouse model, in which a ubi...

In addition to the core symptoms that define Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), many individuals experience broader problem behaviour at a level significant enough for families to seek further clinical assessment and intervention. We define ‘problem behaviour’ as any significant emotional or behavioural issue captured by the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) including anxiety, depression, withdrawal, somatic complaints, problems with socialisation, thought or attention, rule-breaking, and aggression. While greater ASD symptom severity and accompanying sleep disturbance have each been linked with more severe problem ...

It’s safe to say that most of us would love more joy in our lives, particularly when it feels like the hours blend together into one big blur, and we find ourselves feeling blah. Yet, do you know what brings you joy? Sometimes, we can get so swept up in the daily hustle that we forget to ask ourselves this question—and we have no idea about the answer. According to therapist Lynn Zakeri, LCSW, “joy is found in different ways by different people.” She defines joy as “better than feeling good,” and “better than fun.” It’s forgetting about your stress and troubles, and bei...
