  • More Doctors and Scientists Now Agree: Depression Is a Physical Illness  For those looking for a way out of depression, recent research offers a totally different approach than is what is being offered by most doctors and psychiatrists. It centers around the findings in a host of new research which suggests that many cases of depression may be physical in nature, rather than rooted in a chemical imbalance or psychological disturbance.
  • Neuroscience Helps Explain Severe Infection In Pregnancy Link To Autism  It is known that mothers who come down with severe infections that require hospitalization during pregnancy are at an elevated risk of having a child with autism. Two new studies from MIT and the University of Massachusetts Medical School investigate the phenomenon and pinpoint potential prevention pathways. In research on mice, the researchers discovered that the composition of bacterial populations in the mother’s digestive tract can influence whether maternal infection leads to autistic-like behaviors in offspring. They also discovered the specific brain changes that produce these behaviors.
