Mild Cognitive Impairment and Signaling Explored With MRS Scan


Whereas magnetic resonance imaging primarily measures the brain’s water, magnetic resonance spectroscopy has been long used to identify metabolites based on “signature” peaks of the substances generated in response to certain vibrations.


Mass Spec Study Backs Remarkable Parkinson's Smell Test


A skin swab test for Parkinson's has become a real possibility, after mass spectrometry was used to detect altered levels of specific compounds on the skin of people with the condition. The research is a result of the incredible ability of one woman to detect a unique odor on the skin of people with Parkinson's disease. These findings open the door to a non-invasive screening test.


AI Utilized to Predict Cancer's Migration to the Brain


A new precision medicine approach developed at the University of Michigan aims to predict cancer’s likelihood of migrating to the brain, and to aid in the search for new treatments
