Many children are at a disadvantage even before they walk into an early Head Start or pre-K program.What do we know and what can be done to mitigate the long-term effects of this deficit? A researcher, an outreach specialist, and a federal official discussed data,programs, and policy during a recent forum in Washington, DC.

Why do so many disorders, especially schizophrenia, develop in adolescence? University of Cambridge researchers find myelination increases even as gray matter decreases, in “normal” teens—especially in areas linking brain networks.

tightly is violence tied to mental illness? Not as tight as US journalism makes

People who stutter have no problems with memory,
syntax, grammar, word finding, or articulation. Scientists theorized that there
must be some extremely specific population of neurons somewhere in the brain

At a recent NYAS conference, researchers compare
notes, trying to suss out why so many older people show signs of delirium just

scale of brain connectivity could tell doctors which child is at risk of
