 Researchers receive $3.4 million NIH grant to assess soccer's tradeoffs with respect to brain health
 
Researchers receive $3.4 million NIH grant to assess soccer's tradeoffs with respect to brain healthMore than 25 million Americans play soccer, the world's most popular sport. Soccer significantly benefits brain health by boosting aerobic capacity and oxygen and blood flow to the brain, but it also has a downside: Recent studies show that highly repetitive heading of the ball is associated with structural brain changes and worse cognitive performance similar to brain damage caused by concussion.

 What is the Role of Non-invasive Imaging in Diagnostics?
 
What is the Role of Non-invasive Imaging in Diagnostics?The use of diagnostic imaging in medicine dates back for over a century. However, huge advances have been made over the last 50 years, in which multiple imaging modalities have offered a previously unimaginable wealth of data on the structure and function of the inward organs of the human body.
 
 
 What are the Clinical Applications of Functional Neuroimaging?
 
What are the Clinical Applications of Functional Neuroimaging?Most people would categorize CAT scans, PET scans, and MRI scans into the same grouping, however, it is important to note that a significant variability exists between these neuroimaging techniques. This article explores the clinical applications of functional neuroimaging.
