Neuroimaging of a person's unique brain activity may help predict mental health problems during adolescence, a new study reports.
Brain scans taken while people perform tasks and while resting accurately were able to predict a person's political persuasions. The findings provide evidence that partisan political stances may have biological roots.
Neuroimaging can be used to assess a person's risk of suicidal behavior. Those with mood disorders, a history of suicidal thoughts, and those with a history of suicide attempts have less connectivity in the cognitive control network. They also have reduced connectivity between the cognitive control network and the default mode network.
Researchers from the Developing Human Connectome Project have released over 500 brain scans from newborn babies as part of an open-source effort to allow other researchers to study human brain development.
Researchers question just how far fMRI research should go when trying to understand what exactly is going on inside our heads.
Researchers suggest a number of new tests for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, including a saliva test.
A new study reports a biomarker for Alzheimer's disease could be detected with the help of neuroimaging technology.
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.
Researchers suggest MRI could prove an effective tool in diagnosing mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder. Using advanced computational models, researchers were able to correctly distinguish bipolar patients from healthy individuals with 73% accuracy based on brain scans alone.
Researchers have found that some second-trimester markers for Down’s syndrome detected by ultrasound increase the risk of giving birth to a child with the condition. The findings could help address the risks pregnant women face in having a child with Down’s syndrome.
