Men Struggle During Infertility And Pregnancy Loss Too
In the three years that Thomas Smialek and his wife Sara have been trying to have a baby, they’ve endured two miscarriages and multiple failed infertility treatments. But this latest round of in-vitro fertilization, or IVF, has been especially challenging. Not only are they shelling out thousands of dollars in insurance co-pays and taking time off work to drive three hours round trip from their home in Marion, Illinois to their fertility clinic appointments in St. Louis, but Smialek, 33, can’t shake the feeling of being left out.

We Know How To Curb Epidemics. Can Alzheimer's Be Next?
I travel a lot, which means I spend much of my time in airports waiting to catch a flight. I use most of that time to work or catch up on email, but sometimes, when it’s really early in the morning or really late at night, I just sit at the gate and watch the people go by. And not too long ago I saw something that broke my heart. It was a couple my age, maybe a few years older. They were making their way to the gate. They were ordinary-looking folks, but as I looked at them closely I noticed that something wasn’t quite right. The man seemed confused, disoriented, distressed. The woman seemed stricken, sad.

Sir David Attenborough Struggles With Memory Loss And Boomers Start To Worry
In between discussing how to save the planet, Sir David Attenborough recently mentioned something that tapped directly into the fears of the world’s older residents: He’s having trouble remembering names. In his case, plant names. Aging’s biggest bugaboo is memory loss, and the worry that someday we won’t recognize our loved ones strikes fear in the heart of even the most laid-back boomer.  So when the famed naturalist, who turns 91 in May, sat down with The Telegraph less than 24 hours after a trip to the Jura Mountains in Switzerland and noted that he hadn’t remembered th...

Neurons ' faulty wiring leads to serotonin imbalance, depression-like behavior in mice
A gene has been identified that allows neurons that release serotonin to evenly spread their branches throughout the brain. Without this gene, these branches become entangled, leading to haphazard serotonin distribution, and signs of depression in mice. These observations shed light on how neuronal wiring is critical to overall brain health, while also revealing a promising new research focus for psychiatric disorders associated with serotonin imbalance -- such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and autism.

At age 32, Joe Thomas doesn’t remember things like he used to. That could be annoying, even disconcerting, for the average person.

It’s hard to tell.”  Asked to elaborate, Thomas told Bensinger, “You walk to the grocery store and you...

Pcdh{alpha}c2 is required for axonal tiling and assembly of serotonergic circuitries in mice
Serotonergic neurons project their axons pervasively throughout the brain and innervate various target fields in a space-filling manner, leading to tiled arrangements of their axon terminals to allow optimal allocation of serotonin among target neurons. Here we show that conditional deletion of the mouse protocadherin α (Pcdhα) gene cluster in serotonergic neurons disrupts local axonal tiling and global assembly of serotonergic circuitries and results in depression-like behaviors. Genetic dissection and expression profiling revealed that this role is specifically mediated by Pcdhαc2, which is the only Pcd...
