Volume decreases in cortical areas, the amygdala, and basal forebrain in Parkinson's patients correlated with worsening symptoms of the disease.
Using whole-brain virtual models, researchers simulate the effects of non-invasive neurostimulation on the aging brain. The computational models shed light on the dynamics of brain changes as a result of aging.
A single neuron, through its axon, is capable of simultaneously producing different effects in separate areas of the cerebral cortex.
Researchers propose a new approach to neuroimaging studies. They suggest, rather than beginning with predefined behavioral functions and trying to assign associated brain regions, new studies should focus on selecting brain areas first and screen for potential behavioral associations.
Neuroscientists recently converged on Glasgow to discuss advances in the quest toward building a unified platform for brain research.
