A new century of Alzheimer's disease research

...ord Jack, M.D., in Rochester, patients may undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to examine brain structure, including changing volumes in white matter and hints of vascular damage; MR spectroscopy to assess chemical processing; functional MRI to look at the brain’s reaction to stimulus; positron emission ...

Genetic Disease Causes hearing loss

... findings and audiologic data were correlated with magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography imaging studies. Thirty-five patients with von Hippel-Lindau disease and ELSTs in 38 ears were identified. the most common ELSTassociated clinical finding in this series was hearing loss. Sensorineural hear...

Research Reveals Anatomy of Suppressed Memories: Study

...t. The results of the scans or fMRIs (functional magnetic resonance imaging) indicated that the volunteers were able to "exert some control over their emotional memories," said Brendan Depue, a doctoral student in neuroscience at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and lead author of the study.

Tumor Painting to Fight Against Cancer

... of the surgical site. Current technology, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can distinguish tumors from healthy tissue only if more than 1 million cancer cells are present. But Cy5.5 can identify tumors with as few as 2000 cancer cells, making it 500 times more sensitive than MRI. "My greatest hope...

Scorpion Venom may Help Treat Cancer

...rs with at least 500 times more sensitivity than a magnetic resonance imaging scan, the researchers found. The scientists said that in tests on mice, it highlighted brain tumours as small as one millimetre in diameter. They are now preparing for human clinical trials. The researchers said the technique coul...

Converting Left-hander to Right-hander also Changes the Brain

...the task their brain activity was monitored with a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The researchers found that one movement-related area of the brain was most active in the right hemisphere for left-handers, and in the left hemisphere for right-handers, including converted left-handers. But the activ...

Doctors Puzzled Over Man's Normal Life With Unusually Tiny Brain

... left leg. Scans by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed that the man's cerebral cavities, called ventricles, had massively expanded. "The brain itself, meaning the grey matter and white matter, was completely crushed against the sides of the skull," Feuillet told AFP. "T...
