Researchers report differences in the cerebellum and pons could increase risk for multiple forms of mental illness.
According to a new study, the brains of people with schizophrenia may be able to reorganize and fight the illness.
Researchers pinpoint the role of the Arl13b gene in the formation and proper placement of neurons during brain development.
A new neuroimaging study reports Romanian children who spent their early years in orphanages often have thinner brain tissue in cortical areas corresponding to attention and impulse control.
A new study links better math skills in children with cardiorespiratory fitness and associated gray matter thinning.
Assessing a child's exposure to air pollution on a monthly basis from conception to the age of 8.5, researchers found the greater the exposure to air pollution before the age of 5, the greater the alteration in brain structure by preadolescence.
Frequent caffeine consumption reduces gray matter volume in areas of the right medial temporal lobe, including the hippocampus. Ten days of "caffeine abstinence" helps regenerate gray matter.
Researchers identify the white matter scaffold of the brain, a critical communication network which supports brain function.
Researchers use neuroimaging technology to visualize the pathways that connect the different areas of the basal ganglia. The research could lead to new tracking of disease progression in Parkinson's and Huntington's disease.
