Cortical anatomy is not represented by fixed differences between those with ASD and peers not on the autism spectrum. However, differences in symptom profiles and severity, age and cognitive ability are related to brain differences specific to ASD alone.
A new study links better math skills in children with cardiorespiratory fitness and associated gray matter thinning.
A new study reports bilingual people have an advantage when it comes to brain plasticity. Researchers report being multilingual could help stave off cognitive decline associated with dementia.
Researchers discover differences in the structure of the cerebral cortex in depressed patients, but the differences can be normalized following taking appropriate medications.
Combining brain scan images with machine learning, researchers identified a number of brain changes following TBI that share similarities with Alzheimer's disease. The findings add to the growing body of evidence that the two conditions follow the same trajectories.
Cortical thickness and regional brain connectivity pay an equally important role in linking brain and behavior.
According to a new study, the cerebral cortex is thicker on average in those with Down syndrome, although the volume of the cortex is lower.
Learning an instrument can also train children to control their emotions and diminish their anxiety, a new study reports.
A new test that uses graphic characters called 'Greebles' could help doctors detect early signs of Alzheimer's disease before the symptoms become apparent.
UCL researchers report epilepsy is associated with gray matter differences in thickness and volume in several brain regions.
A new study reports older adults who improved their fitness through moderate intensity exercise increased cortical thickness.
Children who experience early life adversity experience faster biological aging than children with no history of exposure to abuse. Trauma was associated with biological aging in early puberty, cellular aging, and alterations in brain structure. The findings may explain why children who experienced adversity early in life often suffer poor health as they age.
