Neuroimaging

 

Physical activity sustains gray matter volume in the brain of older adults, according to recent findings from Rush University Medical Center researchers in Chicago.  

Researchers from King's College London's Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and the University of Roehampton in London have found a way to suppress verbal hallucinations in individuals with schizophrenia through video games. 

The sound of music can speak to one's soul in myriad ways. Musical genres can also affect the brain in varying ways.

According to recent findings published in the January issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, Yale University researchers have found that people with type 1 diabetes miss low blood sugar cues from the body compared with healthy adults because of differences in neurological reactions and stimulation.  

The science behind why birds of a feather flock together goes beyond just sharing mutual interests, according to a recent study published by Nature Communications.
