We put on our headphones every day, but who considers what allows singers to reach the high notes? Swiss researchers, that’s who.

Researchers, led by scientists at the University of Cambridge, have found a correlation between interconnectivity of brain regions and individual intelligence using brain MRI, according to a study published online in Neuron.

Researchers explored using MRI to distinguish age-related changes and as a tool to evaluated aging thigh muscles. The study used four quantitative MRI techniques: intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), diffusion-tensor imaging (DTI), multiecho Dixon water-fat imaging and dynamic contrast material–enhanced (DCE) MR imaging.

New technology developed at New York’s Binghamton University could change the way clinicians detect heart disease with MRI scans, research published in the journal Colloid and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces suggests.

Around this time of year, people are reminded it’s better to give than receive. According to recent research using functional MRI (fMRI) to examine brain function, this is true when it comes to giving thanks. Gratitude may be good for mental health and increase overall feelings of altruism.
