Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technique which physicians use for the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.
Understanding how the motor cortex participates in active inference of speech perception and choice is critical for understanding human language intelligence, which may inspire the next generation of AI.
Anything with three hearts, blue blood and skin that can change colors like a display in Times Square is likely to turn heads.
Cognitive deficits accompany mood disorders and other psychiatric conditions, often with debilitating effects.
Calm body, calm mind, say the practitioners of mindfulness. A new study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates that the idea that the body and mind are inextricably intertwined is more than just an abstraction.
Brain development does not occur uniformly across the brain, but follows a newly identified developmental sequence, according to a new Penn Medicine study.
Intelligence is presumably heritable. Certain genetic variations have been linked to higher intelligence test performance in research. Other research has linked intelligence to a number of brain characteristics, like network efficiency.
New research published by investigators at Cedars-Sinai advances scientific understanding of how the brain weighs decisions involving what people like or value, such as choosing which book to read, which restaurant to pick for lunch-;or even, which slot machine to play in a casino.
Using vision to efficiently move through an area by foot uses a unique region of the brain's cortex, according to a small study funded by the National Eye Institute.
Birmingham based charity, Help Harry Help Others and Aston University researchers, are working together to develop a pioneering pre-surgical diagnostic tool, which could see the eventual outcome of children with brain tumors drastically improve.
Using a specialized MRI sensor, MIT researchers have shown that they can detect light deep within tissues such as the brain.
AXT is pleased to announce a further expansion to their preclinical imaging portfolio with the addition of Luxonus
A clinical trial at UC Davis Health and six other sites showed that a cellular therapy offers promise for patients with late-stage Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a rare genetic disorder causing muscle loss and physical impairments in young people.
LMU researchers show what happens in the human brain when we try to influence other people or when we ourselves are influenced by others.
While neurons and glial cells are by far the most numerous cells in the brain, many other types of cells play important roles. Among those are cerebrovascular cells, which form the blood vessels that deliver oxygen and other nutrients to the brain.
A Johns Hopkins Medicine scientist who spent 30 years figuring out how to put chemical labels into cells to track their movement in living tissues has found that certain self-renewing stem cells have built-in tracers -; made out of sugars -; that can do the job without added chemical "labels" when injected into mouse brains.
Each year The Scientist seeks to highlight the latest and greatest tools, technologies, and techniques to hit the life science landscape.
A genetic predisposition for depression combined with exposure to high-particulate-matter air pollution greatly elevates the risk that healthy people will experience depression, according to a first-of-its-kind study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences from neuroscientists at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development, on the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus, and Peking University in Beijing, China.
A synthetic aftertaste might not be the only side effect of switching to diet soda, especially if you're trying to lose weight.
Researchers created a process employing machine learning to enhance data examination from a robust scientific tool—nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
A new study published in Nature Communications suggests that gene therapy delivered into the brain may be safe and effective in treating aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) deficiency.
