Researchers have developed a new brain imaging method that uses pulsed laser light to monitor cerebral blood flow more accurately than more traditional methods.
Researchers have identified how two different populations of neurons in the striatum are affected differently in Huntington's disease. The neurodegeneration of one of these populations leads to motor defects while damage to the other population located in striosomes may account for mood disorders associated with the early stages of Huntington's.
Using advances in machine learning, researchers have created a new model that predicts the ease with which individuals produce and comprehend complex sentences.
Researchers have developed a new specialized MRI sensor that detects light deep within brain tissue.
A simple act such as rubbing your temples when you have a headache can help to alleviate pain. Researchers say this is because pain-responsive neurons in the brain quiet down when these neurons also receive touch input.
Brain signatures and types of difficulties children of a lower socioeconomic status experience when it comes to reading are different from those children who struggle to read but are from a higher socioeconomic status.
When people carry the Alzheimer's associated APOE4 gene, oligodendrocytes fail to transport fatty molecules to wrap neurons that make brain circuitry connections. This deficit of myelin may contribute to the pathology and symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.
A new in-home device that monitors movement and gait speed can evaluate Parkinson's disease severity, progression, and a patient's response to medication.
