MRI shows brain differences among ADHD patients

Published: Wed, 22 Nov 2017 09:31:06 EST

Information from brain MRIs can help identify people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and distinguish among subtypes of the condition, according to a new study.

Turtles and technology advance understanding of lung abnormality

Published: Tue, 21 Nov 2017 13:25:35 EST

A study of an unusual snapping turtle with one lung found shared characteristics with humans born with one lung who survive beyond infancy. New digital 3-D anatomical models made the detailed research possible.

Revolutionary imaging technique uses CRISPR to map DNA mutations

Published: Tue, 21 Nov 2017 09:51:50 EST

A new nanomapping technology could transform the way disease-causing genetic mutations are diagnosed and discovered.

'Magic' sinus paths could mean new instructions for nasal sprays

Published: Mon, 20 Nov 2017 09:00:43 EST

Sinus infections, inflammation and nasal congestion constantly plague Americans, often leading to unpleasant symptoms and even missed days of work. Traditional nasal spray anti-inflammatory medications attempt to treat the symptoms noninvasively, but are not very efficient in transmitting the active drug ingredients directly into the sinus cavities.

Brain activity buffers against worsening anxiety

Published: Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:17:43 EST

Boosting activity in brain areas related to thinking and problem-solving may also protect against worsening anxiety, suggests a new study. Using noninvasive brain imaging, the researchers found that at-risk people were less likely to develop anxiety if they had higher activity in a region of the brain responsible for complex mental operations. The results may be a step towards tailoring psychological therapies to the specific brain functioning of individual patients.

Noninvasive brain imaging shows readiness of trainees to perform operations

Published: Thu, 16 Nov 2017 19:00:05 EST

While simulation platforms have been used to train surgeons before they enter an actual operating room (OR), few studies have evaluated how well trainees transfer those skills from the simulator to the OR. Now, a study that used noninvasive brain imaging to evaluate brain activity has found that simulator-trained medical students successfully transferred those skills to operating on cadavers and were faster than peers who had no simulator training.

New imaging technique peers inside living cells

Published: Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:21:29 EST

Called Ultrasound Bioprobe, a non-invasive approach allows researchers to view sub-cellular structures and their mechanical behavior at nanoscale resolution.

Manganese-based MRI contrast agent may be safer alternative to gadolinium-based agents

Published: Wed, 15 Nov 2017 12:46:10 EST

Researchers have developed a manganese-based magnetic resonance imaging contrast agent, a potential alternative to gadolinium-based agents, which carry significant health risks for some patients.

Take a fantastic 3-D voyage through the brain with new immersive virtual reality system

Published: Wed, 15 Nov 2017 09:17:58 EST

A new immersive virtual reality (VR) experience now offers a unique way to visualize and interact with large volumes of 3-D anatomical brain data. The system has applications in neurotechnology development, research and surgeon training.

Brain structure, cognitive function in treated HIV-positive individuals

Published: Mon, 13 Nov 2017 12:37:28 EST

Adults with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and good viral suppression on combination antiretroviral therapy had poorer cognition and reduced brain thickness and volume on magnetic resonance imaging than adults without HIV, but changes over time in cognitive performance and brain structure were similar between the two groups over two years.
