Using MRI neuroimaging, researchers develop a new method of quantifying brain tissue volume. The new method could provide an additional way to track the progress of multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases.
Researchers pinpoint the brain regions and brainwave frequencies associated with sleep-enhanced learning of a sequential finger tapping task.
A new study finds no evidence that impaired blood flow or blockage in the veins of the head or neck are associated with Multiple Sclerosis.
Researchers have developed a new MRI neuroimaging technique which detects brain lesions associated with multiple sclerosis in finer detail than ever before. The technique could be a powerful tool for evaluating new treatment options for the disease.
Using several imaging methods, researchers note chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency, CCSVI, occurs in low rates for patients with multiple sclerosis and non-MS volunteers.
A new study suggests that blood may hold clues to whether post-menopausal women may have an increased risk for brain damage that can lead to memory problems and an increased risk of stroke.
A new study found soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with mild TBI have measurable abnormalities in white matter when compared to returning veterans who have not experienced TBI. These abnormalities appear to be related to the severity of the injury and are related to cognitive deficits.
A new study has identified the two areas of the brain responsible for our perception of orientation and shape. Research found that the two neighbouring areas, known as human visual field maps, process the different types of visual information independently.
Scientists report researchers are now on the threshold of human application of stem cell therapies for a class of neurological diseases known as myelin disorders – a long list of diseases that include conditions such as multiple sclerosis, white matter stroke, cerebral palsy, certain dementias, and rare but fatal childhood disorders called pediatric leukodystrophies.
Using several neuroimaging methods, a team of researchers working at the University of Western Ontario have now uncovered that functional changes within a key brain network occur directly after a 30-minute session of noninvasive, neural-based training.
A European team of scientists have built the first atlas of white-matter microstructure in the human brain.
An inexpensive, five-minute eye scan can accurately assess the amount of brain damage in people with the debilitating autoimmune disorder multiple sclerosis (MS), and offer clues about how quickly the disease is progressing.
Researchers create a map of vision in the brain based upon an individual's brain structure, even for people who cannot see. Their result can, among other things, guide efforts to restore vision using a neural prosthesis that stimulates the surface of the brain.
Low blood levels of vitamin D are associated with an increased number of brain lesions and signs of a more active disease state in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), a new study finds, suggesting a potential link between intake of the vitamin and the risk of longer-term disability from the autoimmune disorder.
Have you ever wondered why you can remember things from long ago as if they happened yesterday, yet sometimes can't recall what you ate for dinner last night? A new study suggests it's because how much something means to you actually influences how you see it as well as how vividly you can recall it later.
