Researchers have linked specific gene mutations and brain function in Huntington’s disease (HD) patients by comparing trinucleotide (CAG) repeats with whole-brain connectivity via functional MRI (fMRI). Examining disease carriers and health controls, the researchers found CAG repeat length inversely correlates with an individual’s age at onset.

Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis have recently developed a new method to measure third trimester growth and folding patterns of babies' brains, according to a recent university news release. The folding patterns in a baby's brain, researchers specifically found, can be as unique to an individual as are fingerprints.
