Using AI technology to analyze CMR scans, researchers were able to precisely quantify the blood flow to the heart muscles of patients. Comparing the AI-generated blood flow results with health outcomes, the team found those with reduced blood flow were at increased risk of stroke, heart attacks, and heart failure. The machine-learning algorithm was able to predict which patients may die or suffer major adverse health events better than doctors could.

Combining artificial intelligence technology with MRI brain scans, researchers are able to detect the brain's response to Natalizumab treatment for those with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.
Researchers report human growth hormone, prepared from human tissue prior to 1985, may have been contaminated with seeds of the amyloid beta protein. In a new study, researchers injected mice with the original c-hGH batches containing amyloid beta which seeded amyloid pathology, even decades after storage. Findings support the hypothesis that the Alzheimer's causing proteins can be transmitted to from contaminated materials.
While England has only seen a moderate rise in people being diagnosed with psychosis in recent years, prescription rates for antipsychotic medications have doubled.
A JAMA Psychiatry study reports the detrimental effect of childhood bullying decreases over time.
According to researchers, subtle and unconscious increases in arousal can help shape our confidence in visual experiences.
Astrocytes play a vital role in maintaining the pH balance within the brain.
The mode of delivery at birth is a significant factor in the composition of gut bacteria. Children born via cesarean section have reduced levels of 'good' bacteria and an increased number of pathogens linked to the hospital environment.
