New clinical research offers possibility of future rehabilitation for patients in minimally conscious or vegetative state

Published: Thu, 17 Oct 2019 21:16:00 EDT

Non-invasive brain stimulation is to be trialled for the first time alongside advanced brain imaging techniques in patients who are minimally conscious or in a vegetative state.

Digital breast tomosynthesis increases cancer detection over full-field mammography

Published: Wed, 16 Oct 2019 15:37:05 EDT

A new article compares cancer detection rates (CDR) for screening digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) versus full-field digital mammography (FFDM). Researchers found that DBT results in 'significantly increased CDR' -- irrespective of tumor type, size, or grade of cancer.

More aggressive blood pressure control benefits brains of older adults

Published: Tue, 15 Oct 2019 13:16:28 EDT

A new study followed 199 hypertension patients 75 years of age and older for 3 years.

The brain does not follow the head

Published: Tue, 15 Oct 2019 13:14:50 EDT

The human brain is about three times the size of the brains of great apes. This has to do, among other things, with the evolution of novel brain structures that enabled complex behaviors such as language and tool production. A study by anthropologists now shows that changes in the brain occurred independent of evolutionary rearrangements of the braincase.

Finding upends theory about the cerebellum's role in reading and dyslexia

Published: Wed, 09 Oct 2019 13:17:59 EDT

New brain imaging research debunks a controversial theory about dyslexia that can impact how it is sometimes treated. The cerebellum, a brain structure traditionally considered to be involved in motor function, has been implicated in the reading disability, developmental dyslexia, however, this 'cerebellar deficit hypothesis' has always been controversial. The new research shows that the cerebellum is not engaged during reading in typical readers and does not differ in children who have dyslexia.

PET offers more precise screening method to select candidates for radionuclide therapy

Published: Tue, 08 Oct 2019 16:58:23 EDT

PET scanning can offer more precise selection of patients for neuroendocrine tumor therapy, allowing some patients to qualify who would otherwise have been ineligible, according to a new article.

Prenatal stress could affect baby's brain

Published: Tue, 08 Oct 2019 09:43:09 EDT

New research has found that maternal stress before and during pregnancy could affect a baby's brain development.

Optical imager poised to improve diagnosis and treatment of dry eye disease

Published: Fri, 04 Oct 2019 15:52:27 EDT

Researchers have developed a new non-invasive optical imaging system that promises to improve diagnosis and treatments for dry eye disease. Dry eye, which often causes irritation and blurred vision, occurs when there is instability in the inner layer of the tear film that protects the outside of the eye.

Pesticides likely caused 'Havana syndrome' that affected Cuba-based diplomats

Published: Thu, 03 Oct 2019 11:17:53 EDT

The study details the nature of the injury, specifies the brain regions involved, including the blood-brain barrier and suggests a possible cause in the form of 'cholinesterase inhibitors,' with 'organophosphorus insecticides' being a likely source. Cholinesterase (ChE) is one of the key enzymes required for the proper functioning of the nervous systems of humans, invertebrates and insects.

Tracking the HI virus: Researchers makes visible, how AIDS pathogens multiply in the body

Published: Wed, 02 Oct 2019 14:42:45 EDT

Scientists have succeeded in using high-resolution imaging to visualize to the millisecond how the human immunodeficiency virus multiplies in living host T cells and which molecules it requires for this purpose.
