Reactivating aging stem cells in the brain

As people get older, their neural stem cells lose the ability to proliferate and produce new neurons, leading to a decline in memory function. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now discovered a mechanism linked ...

Neural network can determine lung cancer severity

Computed tomography (CT) is a major diagnostic tool for assessment of lung cancer in patients. Now NIBIB-funded researchers at Stanford University have created an artificial neural network that analyzes lung CT scans to provide ...

Heart-brain connection could be predictive biomarker for epilepsy

Heartbeat irregularities connected to brain activity abnormalities may lead to the ability to predict eventual epileptic seizures in subjects who suffered physical or infectious brain insults, according to Penn State researchers ...

Mapping the brain with data science

Patients with dementia and other neural diseases show physical symptoms such as stumbling and confusion, but identifying the problem isn't as simple as taking an X-ray. A group of researchers at Purdue University are designing ...
