Future research into the underlying causes of neurological disorders such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia, should greatly benefit from a first-of-its-kind atlas of gene-enhancers in the cerebrum (telencephalon). This new atlas identifies and locates thousands of gene-regulating elements in a region of the brain that is of critical importance for cognition, motor functions and emotion.
Researchers discover significant sex-based brain anatomy differences between males and females with dyslexia.
Researchers pinpoint the role of the Arl13b gene in the formation and proper placement of neurons during brain development.
Important clues about the causes of MS could be found in gray matter, a new study suggests.
Neuroimaging brain scans show evidence of brain abnormalities four months after a mild concussion occurs, researchers report.
Researchers claim less gray matter in the brains of those with dyslexia is a consequence of poorer reading experiences and not the root cause of the disorder.
A new study aims to help identify how to match personalized medicine to achieve the best outcomes for recovering in TBI patients.
Researchers identify the white matter scaffold of the brain, a critical communication network which supports brain function.
Researchers believe they have identified a gene which links the thickness of gray matter in the brain to intelligence.
Researchers show chronic stress generates long term changes in the brain. The finding could explain why people suffering from chronic stress are prone to developing additional mental health problems.
