A novel PET neuroimaging tracer detects abnormal inflammation in the cerebral gray matter of patients with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.
Neuroimaging reveals Holocaust survivors have decreased gray matter in brain structures associated with emotional processing, memory, and social cognition. Early results show similar neuroanatomical changes in the children of survivors, suggesting an epigenetic link.
Neuroimaging helps researchers observe what happens in the brain as a person is rotated. The study, which gives insight into how the brain moves after the head stops moving, also provides critical information for advancing studies of TBI.
A deficiency of the SHANK3 gene, a gene associated with ASD, results in structural and functional deficits in the prefrontal cortex. The functional and structural alterations in the PFC were linked to an impairment in social interaction in male mice.
A new study reports your general cognitive ability as a young adult may be a strong predictor of your cognitive function later in life. Researchers report other factors, such as education level and intellectual activities only play a minor role in age related cognitive function.
Researchers report a genetic mutation that causes structural abnormalities in the adolescent brain may predict an increased risk of schizophrenia later in life.
Even small amounts of cannabis use in teens can alter gray matter volume in the brain, a new study reports. Researchers report those exposed to cannabis had more gray matter volume in the amygdala and hippocampus, areas of the brain linked to emotional processes and memory development.
Researchers implicate a brain region called the paracingulate sulcus in the experience of hallucinations. The findings shed light into why some people are more likely to hallucinate than others, and provides a new target for treatment aimed at reducing the experience.
People with Huntington's disease who participated in intellectually stimulating activities had less brain atrophy than those with the disease who did not take up such activities.
Researchers say a single season of playing high school football is all it takes to cause microscopic alterations to the structure of the brain.
