Multiple sclerosis can be inhibited or reversed using a novel gene therapy technique that stops the disease's immune response in mouse models, University of Florida Health researchers have found.
 
 
 Study finds link between concussion in adolescence and raised risk of later multiple sclerosisStudy finds link between concussion in adolescence and raised risk of later multiple sclerosis
 
A new study published in the Annals of Neurology found a link between head trauma in adolescence, particularly if repeated, with a raised risk of later developing multiple sclerosis.
 
   Blood vitamin D levels could help predict multiple sclerosis riskBlood vitamin D levels could help predict multiple sclerosis risk
 
A new study has shown that assessing blood vitamin D levels may help predict whether a person is at risk of multiple sclerosis (MS).

 Using Resting-State Functional MRI for Fine-Grained Mapping of Mouse Brain Functional Connectivity
 
Using Resting-State Functional MRI for Fine-Grained Mapping of Mouse Brain Functional ConnectivityThe neuroimaging field has been revolutionized by the resting state functional MRI or rs-fMRI technique, (Biswal et al., 1995), highlighting a major shift towards the notion of combined whole brain functional networks in contrast to the process of identifying isolated functional brain regions triggered by some stimulus paradigm.
