Neuroimaging

 

In a recent editorial published in the November issue of The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), Werner Hacke, MD, PhD, DSc, discussed a new era of imaging selections for patients who are looking to benefit from a thrombectomy performed long after the onset of a stroke.

According to a new study published by the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (AJRCCM), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may increase elderly individuals' risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.  

The effects of space travel on the human anatomy are extensive to say the least, taking into account the harsh impact zero gravity and the rapid ascension into space have on the bodies of astronauts. Yet, the amount of information detailing the effects spaceflight has on the configuration of astronauts' brains is limited, claimed in a recent study published by The New England Journal of Medicine and funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). 

New research, funded by the National Football League Charities and the NFL Players Association, examined former football players, examined career duration and playing position in the white matter structure and neural recruitment of former college and professional athletes.

Researchers form the Georgia Institute of Technology have comforting news for those who may drift into a daydream during an afternoon meeting. Such behavior, as seen via MRI, could be a sign of intellectual and creative abilities.
