In clinical trial, mixture developed at MIT appears to help overcome loss of connections between brain cells. A clinical trial of an Alzheimer´s disease treatment developed at MIT has found that the nutrient cocktail can improve memory in patients with early Alzheimer´s. The results confirm and expand the findings of an earlier trial of the nutritional supplement, which is designed to promote new connections between brain cells. Alzheimer´s patients gradually lose those...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com Scientists are using a brain trace to help diagnose autism, which has been notoriously hard for doctors to identify in patients. Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School said EEG traces could help offer a diagnostic test for autism in children. Autism is characterized by impaired communication, such as language and social skills. Although MRI studies have reported differing results, EEG measurements have been more consistent....

Largest, most unbiased analysis to date finds distinguishing EEG features Widely available EEG testing can distinguish children with autism from neurotypical children as early as age 2, finds a study from Boston Children's Hospital. The study is the largest, most rigorous study to date to investigate EEGs as a potential diagnostic tool for autism, and offers hope for an earlier, more definitive test. Researchers Frank H. Duffy, MD, of the Department of Neurology, and Heidelise Als, PhD,...

New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal BMC Medicine demonstrates that EEG can distinguish between children with autism and neurotypical controls. Autistic children showed a reduction in short range connectivity indicating poor function of local brain networks, especially in the left hemisphere regions responsible for language. However these children had increased...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com Scientists are working on a project to "hack" into the brain of the renowned physicist Stephen Hawking. Hawking is working with scientists at Stanford University to develop the iBrain, which is a tool that could be used to pick up brain waves and communicate with them through a computer. The famous physicist has motor neuron disease and lost the ability to be able to speak nearly 30 years ago. Hawking currently uses a computer to communicate with...
