Broken brains and network structures

Sometimes a disease is the handiwork of a clear culprit: the invasion of a bacterium, or the mutation of a gene. Conventionally, scientists have assumed the same for neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, and ...

Dynamics of brain volume loss vary with MS progression

(HealthDay)—Brain volume loss (BVL) has nonlinear dynamics and limited reproducibility as a marker of therapeutic response in multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a study published online July 2 in JAMA Neurology.

Virtual brain could aid surgical planning

Researchers have simulated neural activity based on the unique structural architecture of individual brain tumor patients using a platform called The Virtual Brain. The findings, reported in eNeuro, are a first step toward ...

MRI technique detects spinal cord changes in MS patients

A Vanderbilt University Medical Center-led research team has shown that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can detect changes in resting-state spinal cord function in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Neuroscience

Why the world looks stable while we move

Head movements change the environmental image received by the eyes. People still perceive the world as stable, because the brain corrects for any changes in visual information caused by head movements. For the first time, ...

Brain scans show why people get aggressive after a drink or two

Researchers have used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans that measure blood flow in the brain to better understand why people often become aggressive and violent after drinking alcohol. After only two drinks, the researchers ...

Cognitive neuroscience—the awareness of ignorance

Metacognitive judgments of non-experienced events are processed in the frontopolar cortex of the brain, whereas metacognition of experienced events is associated with the dorsal prefrontal cortex, as reported in a study on ...
