Early-life exposure to high levels of traffic-related air pollution alters the structure of the brain at age 12. Children exposed to air pollution had reduced cortical thickness and gray matter volume compared to children who were not exposed to high levels of pollution.
Using computer assisted technology to map cell types and molecular cascades, researchers have discovered potential new treatment strategies for recurrent Sonic Hedgehog Medulloblastoma.
A new machine learning algorithm has proved to be over 91% effective in predicting which students are at higher risk of perpetrating school violence.
Researchers have successfully mapped brain to spinal cord neural connections that help drive voluntary movement. The map could be beneficial in developing new strategies to treat spinal cord damage.
Researchers have been able to restore limb mobility and partially re-insulate neurons in mouse models of MS with microRNA treatments.
Analyzing a patient's words, a machine learning system is 93 percent accurate in correctly classifying a suicidal person, researchers report.
