Research Shows How the Human Brain Adapts to Injury

A study published in Cerebral Cortex, demonstrates that when one brain area loses functionality, a “back-up” group of secondary brain areas immediately activate, replacing not only the unavailable area but also its collateral areas. Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University’s Center … Continue reading

New Imaging Shows Brain Structures Affected by Parkinson’s Disease

A new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique allows scientists to see what was previously theorized – the degeneration of two brain structures affected by Parkinson’s disease. Developed at MIT a technique which combines several types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), … Continue reading

Brain Changes in Obesity

Finnish researchers have found new evidence for the role of the brain in obesity. The central nervous system is actively involved in processing hunger signals and thus, controlling food intake. Research suggests that it is possible that the cause of … Continue reading
