Novel Imaging Technique Could Predict Brain Bleeding Following a Stroke

Scientists in the US have used MRI brain scans of stroke patients to confirm the relationship between the extent that the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB) has been disrupted, and the severity of bleeding, after invasive stroke therapy. More...

Research Suggests fMRI May Not Map Neuronal Circuitry Precisely

Research results published ahead of print, in the May 25, 2016, online issue of Nature, suggest that discrepancies between vascular and neural responses could point towards limits in the use of functional MR Imaging (fMRI) for precise imaging of neural networks in the brain. More...
