A Simple Eye Test for Multiple Sclerosis

Researchers discover the pupils of MS patients respond much slower to stimuli. Additionally, the study reports the slower the response time, the worse the symptoms of MS are.

Brain Surgeons Go with the Flow

A new neuroimaging technique allows neurosurgeons to see neural connections prior to surgery, thus preserving and protecting the brain's critical functions when operating.
