AI-Driven Algorithm Uses fMRI Scans to Detect Autism and Predict Severity

Researchers at Stanford University (Stanford, CA, USA) have developed an algorithm that may help discern if someone has autism by looking at brain scans as well as successfully predict the severity of autism symptoms in individual patients. More...

Brain Mapping Study Using Large-Scale MRI Images Aims to Detect Alzheimer’s Disease Earlier

About 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer’s and forms of dementia, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. The disease kills more people than breast and prostate cancers combined. Now, a new study will map the brain using large-scale magnetic resonance (MRI) images in an effort to identify stable brain landmarks called ‘anchor-nodes’ and detect Alzheimer’s disease earlier.

First-of-Its-Kind Study to Use Advanced MRI Techniques for Testing Brain’s Ability to Adapt to Bionic Limbs

Prosthetics can be a supportive tool for children born with missing limb to perform everyday activities, although little is known about how the brain responds to the addition of an artificial limb. A new, first-of-its-kind clinical trial will use advanced functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to examine how the brain adapts to advanced, bionic arms in children born without a limb, with the ultimate goal of improving control of their prosthetic.

Algorithm Detects Alzheimer’s Disease from MRI Images with Nearly 100% Accuracy

An improved algorithm that can detect Alzheimer’s disease (AD) from MRI images has achieved over 98% accuracy on a test dataset in detecting the neurodegenerative disease by improving a neural network model. To facilitate the process of diagnosing AD, researchers from Kaunas University of Technology (KTU, Kaunas, Lithuania; www.en.ktu.edu) developed a deep learning method to detect early signs of AD from MRI images.
