Fractional anisotropy values are reduced in the corpus callosum and middle orbital gyrus in obese teens. Researchers also discovered a positive correlation between these brain changes and neuroinflammation, insulin levels, and leptin resistance.
Study of macaque monkeys reveals speech and music may have shaped the human brain's auditory networks. Researchers found specific areas of the human brain have a stronger preference for pitch than that of primates, raising the possibility certain sounds, which are embedded in music and speech, may have shaped the organization of our brains.
Researchers use focused ultrasound to safely and non-invasively open the blood-brain barrier in Alzheimer's patients.
Researchers have captured some of the sharpest images of Alzheimer's associated amyloid fibrils to date. The 3D structure of the fibrils displays some previously unknown structural details that researchers believe could help answer some important questions about the development of Alzheimer's disease.
