German researchers have found that physical fitness can actually improve brain structure and brain functioning in young people, according to a study presented at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress in Copenhagen.
Why do some dogs hunt while others herd? The connection between brain structure and function is well-known in both humans and canines, but new research published in the Journal Neuroscience offers new insight into the relationship between innate brain wiring and learned behavior.
Engineers from Duke University have harnessed the power of machine learning to increase the resolution of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging, according to an Aug. 19 study published in Nature Photonics.
Grey matter atrophy impacts localized brain regions that are functionally connected in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a new study published in Clinical Radiology. The results may serve as a framework for developing imaging biomarkers.
A season of football can significantly damage a player’s brain, even if they did not experience a concussion. The results bolster evidence that suggests even repeated hits to the head can cause impactful brain damage.
