A new gut-brain connection has been revealed in a study from scientists at Weill Cornell Medicine. The research found that mice fed a high-salt diet directly led to cognitive impairment, dementia, and reduced blood flow in regions of...Show More Summary
(Weill Cornell Medicine) A high-salt diet reduces resting blood flow to the brain and causes dementia in mice.
(Weill Cornell Medicine) Immune cells that process food and bacterial antigens in the intestines control the intestinal population of fungi, according to a new study from Weill Cornell Medicine scientists. Defects in the fungus-fighting abilities of these cells may contribute to some cases of Crohn's disease and other forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
(Weill Cornell Medicine) It was first thought that the brain was separate from other organs and functions in the body, but more and more we are seeing research revealing a connection between our brains and the rest of our body. One such connection is between our brain and our gut, directly impacting our mind, mood and microbiome. Show More Summary
(Weill Cornell Medicine) Menopause causes metabolic changes in the brain that may increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease, a team from Weill Cornell Medicine and the University of Arizona Health Sciences has shown in new research.
(Weill Cornell Medicine) Weill Cornell Medicine has received a $45.3million renewal grant from the National Institutes of Health's Clinical and Translational Science Awards Program to continue funding its multi-institutional Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) until 2022.
(Weill Cornell Medicine) Internationally renowned neuro-oncologist Dr. Howard A. Fine of Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian will receive a five-year, $6 million National Institutes of Health Director's Pioneer Award for brain cancer research.
(Weill Cornell Medicine) Nerve cells in the gut play a crucial role in the body's ability to marshal an immune response to infection, according to a new study from Weill Cornell Medicine scientists.
A new clinical trial led by investigators at NewYork-Presbyterian, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and Weill Cornell Medicine aims to identify and treat what may be a common underlying cause of recurrent strokes.

(Weill Cornell Medicine) Like many surgeons, Dr. Jason Spector is often faced with the challenge of securely closing the abdominal wall without injuring the intestines. If the process goes awry, there can be serious consequences for patients, including bowel perforations or a hernia at the incision site. Often, repairing these complications requires additional surgeries.
(Weill Cornell Medicine) A deeper understanding of the brain's connectivity network of neurons and its relationship to the organ's deep tissue could allow researchers to predict brain spatial patterns and recognize what processes relate to neurological disorders, according to a new study from Weill Cornell Medicine and the University of California at San Francisco.
