Even though research in the Parkinson's disease field continues to progress, there is still no cure for this disease that affects an estimated seven million to 10 million people worldwide. Still, progress is being made as we are beginning to understand the complexity of this disease.

Waking up was the most terrifying experience. The right side of my body was paralyzed. I lost the ability to speak. I had a stroke. A STROKE... at 29! I went from being this giddy, talkative, always on-the-go woman to being an invalid.

You and your partner get into a spectacular fight. And let us guess... it's his fault. Or hers. Definitely not yours. It's never really our fault.

The boundary between human and machine is softening. The first cyborgs have emerged -- much sooner than scientists would have predicted 30 years ago. We used to think having a device implanted in your skull made you a cyborg and wearing a pair of digital glasses did not. But to the brain, the distinction is arbitrary. Soon we may really have to answer the question: where does "me" end, and "my machine" begin?
Memory, reasoning and comprehension skills can start to decline at age 45, research published Thursday suggests. The findings go against previous research that had found cognitive decline starts afte...
