Musical memories are often preserved in those with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers say listening to music can have a positive impact on emotion and behavior for those with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
A new computational model uses the entire function of the brain rather than specific networks or areas to explain the relationship between mental processing and brain anatomy. The model aims to discover how the brain works and breaks down as a result of aging and dementia.
Novel AI technology allows researchers to understand which brain regions directly interact with each other, which helps guide the placement of electrodes for DBS to treat neurological diseases.
Scars and lesions on the brain and spinal cord offer clues as to why progressive disability occurs in patients with multiple sclerosis.
