Researchers believe their findings could provide new insights into personalized medicine and treatments for specific disorders.
A new study reports the ability to delay gratification is linked to white matter connectivity between the caudate and dorsal prefrontal cortex.
A new neuroimaging study reveals preschool aged children with ASD have significant differences in the basal ganglia network and paralimbic-limbic network in the brain compared to their peers who were not diagnosed with autism.
Methylphenidate, a drug given to help treat ADHD, affects specific tract in white matter in young boys. The effects are age dependant as the changes were not observed in adults who use the treatment. Researchers say the drug should only be given to children if they are significantly affected by ADHD in their daily lives.
Contrary to popular belief that brain changes begin to normalize immediately after ceasing alcohol consumption, a new study reveals damage to the brain continues during the first weeks of abstinence.
A new study reports a biomarker for Alzheimer's disease could be detected with the help of neuroimaging technology.
White matter tracts show increasing maturation with age from the back to the front of the brain. The maturations begin as a child reaches 9-12 years of age. The maturity correlates with a critical and formative period of development.
The process of neural connection re-organization begins earlier in girls. Researchers believe this may explain why they mature faster during teenage years.
Using neuroimaging technology, researchers reveal striking differences in brain connectivity between men and women.
Researchers discover common white matter abnormalities in multiple emotional disorders.
