Researchers combined genetic data with neuroimaging in order to identify genes associated with amyloid plaque deposits in Alzheimer's disease patients. The study is believed to be the first genome-wide association study of plaque deposits using a specialized PET scan tracer that binds to amyloid.
Preliminary brain scan studies reveal how vagus nerve stimulation brings about changes in brain metabolism weeks prior to patients with depression entering into recovery.
In one of the first studies of its kind, UCLA researchers used a unique brain scan to assess the levels...
Researchers discover early accumulation of amyloid plaques in the temporal lobe is associated with cognitive decline. The finding could serve as a new biomarker for the early detection of Alzheimer's disease.

Using neuroimaging technology, researchers discover lower numbers of opioid receptors in the brain of obese people.
Researchers have discovered a well known genetic variant linked to Alzheimer's could be promoting deposits of neurotoxic plaques in the brain years prior to symptoms of the disease developing.
Researchers have developed a new, non invasive, imaging tool that can visualize myelin damage in patients with MS.
Researchers have successfully tested a new vaccine in primates to battle cocaine addiction. Using neuroimaging techniques, they demonstrated the vaccine prevents cocaine from reaching the brain and producing a dopamine induced high. Human trials could begin within the next year.
