Latest Functional magnetic resonance imaging Stories
A group of 'professional couch potatoes,' as one researcher described them, has proven that even moderate exercise can enhance the connectivity of important brain circuits, combat declines in brain function associated with aging and increase performance on cognitive tasks.
Spotting a single cancerous cell that has broken free from a tumor and is traveling through the bloodstream to colonize a new organ might seem like finding a needle in a haystack.
Early knowledge of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) response to transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is crucial for determining treatment success, timing of repeat treatment, and patient prognosis.
Researchers said on Tuesday that brain scans may be able to predict what you will do better than you can yourself, and be a powerful tool for health officials or advertisers seeking to motivate consumers.
Simon Cowell may appear to relish arguing with his fellow judges when they disagree with him, but new research out today suggests that â€“ at least at a neuronal level â€“ he would find their agreement much more satisfying.
The increasing number of incidental findings in brain imaging can be managed ethically and cost-effectively by screening study participants based on gender, age and family history.
CINCINNATI, June 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Kendle (Nasdaq: KNDL), a leading, global full-service clinical research organization, today announced it now offers Brain Network Activation (BNA) imaging providing a non-invasive platform for mapping, monitoring and understanding brain electro-physiological network activity in response to cognitive or physiological stimuli.
There are biological motivations behind the stereotypically poor decisions and risky behavior associated with adolescence.
Researchers at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital have produced the first evidence that the opioid blocker extended-release injectable naltrexone (XR-NTX) is able to reduce the brain's response to cues that may cause alcoholics to relapse.
Like a motorist who knows that the "check engine" light indicates something important but ill-defined is happening, neuroscientists have relied heavily on an incompletely understood technology called functional magnetic resonance imaging to show them what the brain is doing when people respond to different stimuli. The non-invasive technology offers a window into the physiology of human cognition and emotion, but "” without a satisfying explanation of how some common fMRI signals are...
