Emotion regulation distinguishes unipolar and bipolar depression

Emotion regulation distinguishes unipolar and bipolar depression

Patients with bipolar disorder regulate their emotions differently from those with major depressive disorder in both depressed and remitted states, a study shows. [More]
New UCLA study finds Naltrexone drug as promising treatment for methamphetamine addiction

New UCLA study finds Naltrexone drug as promising treatment for methamphetamine addiction

A new study by UCLA researchers has found that Naltrexone, a drug used to treat alcoholism, may also be a promising treatment for addiction to methamphetamine. [More]
Short course of oral steroids unlikely to provide much benefit for patients with acute sciatica

Short course of oral steroids unlikely to provide much benefit for patients with acute sciatica

Among patients with acute sciatica caused by a herniated lumbar disk (a condition also known as "acute radiculopathy"), a short course of oral steroids resulted in only modest improvement in function and no significant improvement in pain, according to a study published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Duke and MIT scientists discover brain area sensitive to the timing of speech

Duke and MIT scientists have discovered an area of the brain that is sensitive to the timing of speech, a crucial element of spoken language. [More]
Simple blood test can predict evidence of TBI on radiographic imaging, injury severity

Simple blood test can predict evidence of TBI on radiographic imaging, injury severity

New study results show that a simple blood test to measure brain-specific proteins released after a person suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can reliably predict both evidence of TBI on radiographic imaging and injury severity. [More]

New studies to improve prostate cancer detection to be presented at AUA annual meeting

Five new studies evaluating the use of imaging and urine-based biomarkers as ways to improve prostate cancer detection will be presented during the 110th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA). [More]
fMRI reflects interactions between brain regions

fMRI reflects interactions between brain regions

Tübingen neuroscientists have made an important advance in studying the human brain with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). [More]
Research leads way for noninvasive detection of early stage liver cancer

Research leads way for noninvasive detection of early stage liver cancer

Led by Georgia State University, researchers have developed the first robust and noninvasive detection of early stage liver cancer and liver metastases, in addition to other liver diseases, such as cirrhosis and liver fibrosis. [More]
Study finds similarity in clinical progression between human patients and Huntington's disease monkeys

Study finds similarity in clinical progression between human patients and Huntington's disease monkeys

Transgenic Huntington's disease monkeys show similarity to humans with Huntington's in their progressive neurodegeneration and decline of motor control, scientists from Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Emory University, report. [More]
New scanning methods could help predict people vulnerable to schizophrenia

New scanning methods could help predict people vulnerable to schizophrenia

New scanning methods which map the wiring of the brain could provide a valuable new tool to predict people at risk of schizophrenia, according to a new study. [More]
Olfactory bulb changes fall short as imaging marker for PD

Olfactory bulb changes fall short as imaging marker for PD

Functional and histopathological changes in the olfactory bulb in patients with Parkinson’s disease do not equate to a volume change that is detectable on magnetic resonance imaging, say researchers. [More]
New MGH-developed technology may extend benefits of MRI in patients with implanted devices

New MGH-developed technology may extend benefits of MRI in patients with implanted devices

New technology developed at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital may extend the benefits of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to many patients whose access to MRI is currently limited. [More]
New research can help explain prevalence of carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica

New research can help explain prevalence of carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica

New research from the University of Eastern Finland and Kuopio University Hospital can help explain the prevalence of widespread syndromes such as carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica. According to the results, neural movements can be measured by using non-invasive techniques, which are also applicable in diagnostics and rehabilitation planning. [More]
New study shows that depression can make your brain go 'fuzzy'

New study shows that depression can make your brain go 'fuzzy'

People with depression or bipolar disorder often feel their thinking ability has gotten "fuzzy", or less sharp than before their symptoms began. Now, researchers have shown in a very large study that effect is indeed real - and rooted in brain activity differences that show up on advanced brain scans. [More]
Electroclinical triggers for repeat MRI in intractable epilepsy identified

Electroclinical triggers for repeat MRI in intractable epilepsy identified

Researchers have outlined the electroclinical features typically associated with bottom-of-sulcus dysplasia, the surgical removal of which often cures epilepsy in affected patients. [More]

MR Solutions demonstrates preclinical multi-modality imaging systems in Toronto

UK-based MR Solutions will be demonstrating its latest commercially available cryogen-free multi-modality preclinical MRI imaging systems at the 23rd Annual Meeting of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM)... [More]
UC Davis professor awarded $2.88 million NCI grant for breast CT research and development

UC Davis professor awarded $2.88 million NCI grant for breast CT research and development

John M. Boone, a UC Davis medical physicist and professor of radiology, has been awarded a $2.88 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to further develop and research computed tomography (CT) to detect breast cancer. [More]
Study provides insight into the brain structures affected by epilepsy

Study provides insight into the brain structures affected by epilepsy

Epilepsy, a disorder characterized by abnormal neuronal activity in certain regions of the brain, leads to organizational changes that can alter brain efficiency at the level of the whole brain. This occurs across functional networks that connect different brain regions and within individual brain regions, as described in an article in Brain Connectivity, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

Cocaine changes brain function, increases impulsive behaviors

Cocaine changes brain function, increases impulsive behaviors

The brain function of people addicted to cocaine is different from that of people who are not addicted and often linked to highly impulsive behavior, according to a new scientific study. [More]
Emotion regulation deficits specific to bipolar I disorder

Emotion regulation deficits specific to bipolar I disorder

Emotion regulation deficits associated with bipolar I disorder may not extend to bipolar II disorder, say researchers. [More]
