Appearance of ovarian lesions on ultrasound may predict malignancy

The appearance of ovarian lesions on ultrasound may predict the risk for malignancy, according to a study published in the June issue of Radiology.

Neuroscience

Scientists build subcellular map of entire brain networks

Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute have developed an imaging technique to capture information about the structure and function of brain tissue at subcellular level—a few billionths of a meter, while also capturing ...

Capturing cortical connectivity close-up

The brain is made up of a complex series of networks—signals are constantly bouncing between those networks to allow us to experience the world and move through it effectively.

Neuroscience

A new statistical method for improved brain mapping

Brain mapping involves finding the brain regions associated with different traits, such as diseases, cognitive functions, or behaviors, and is a major field of research in neuroscience. This approach is based on statistical ...
