  • Radiation-free approach to imaging molecules in the brain December 2, 2016
    Scientists hoping to get a glimpse of molecules that control brain activity have devised a new probe that allows them to image these molecules without using any chemical or radioactive labels.
  • Phantom movements in augmented reality helps patients with chronic intractable phantom limb pain December 2, 2016
    A novel method of treating phantom limb pain has been developed using machine learning and augmented reality. This approach has been tested on over a dozen of amputees with chronic phantom limb pain who found no relief by other clinically available methods before. The new treatment reduced their pain by approximately 50 per cent, reports […]
  • Gut microbes promote motor deficits in a mouse model of Parkinson's disease December 1, 2016
    Gut microbes may play a critical role in the development of Parkinson's-like movement disorders in genetically predisposed mice, researchers report. Antibiotic treatment reduced motor deficits and molecular hallmarks of Parkinson's disease in a mouse model, whereas transplantation of gut microbes from patients with Parkinson's disease exacerbated symptoms in these mice. The findings could lead to […]
  • Thinning of Brain Tissue Remains in College Football Players, Five Years After Play November 30, 2016
    Even college-level athletes may be vulnerable to the effects of head trauma, new research has found. Even several years after graduation, college football players continue to show evidence of neuropathic brain changes, say the researchers.
  • Imaging technique can see you think November 30, 2016
    Fast fMRI has been used to image rapidly fluctuating brain activity during human thought. fMRI measures changes in blood oxygenation, which were previously thought to be too slow to detect the subtle neuronal activity associated with higher order brain functions. The new discovery is a significant step towards realizing a central goal of neuroscience research: […]
