Neuroimaging – Highlights
Neuroimaging Techniques and What a Brain Image Can Tell Us
In this article, we will cover the basics, strengths and limitations and applications of traditional and emerging neuroimaging techniques, and discuss the prospects, challenges, risks and ethics concerned with this rapidly expanding field.
Imaging Techniques in Neuroscience
In this infographic, we review the pros and cons of some of the leading neuroimaging techniques and show off what these techniques can tell us about the brain.
MEG Neuroimaging: The Magnetic Might Keeping Time on the Brain’s Hidden Secrets
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a neuroimaging technique that peers inside the brain by detecting incredibly weak magnetic signals produced by neurons. We spoke with Dimitrios Pantazis, who is director of the MEG lab at the Institute’s Martinos Imaging Center, to find out more about this powerful technology.
Of Currents and Photons: Should Neuroscientists Use Imaging or Electrophysiology to Monitor Neural Activity?
Once viewed as competing to be the best way of doing in vivo neuroscience, optical and electrical recording techniques are now being embraced as complementary methods in the quest to understand the brain.
How Elemental Imaging Can Transform Neuroscience Research
In neuroscience research, imaging techniques are used ubiquitously to produce critical insights. Recently, sophisticated mapping, made possible by powerful elemental imaging techniques such as laser ablation (LA) in combination with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), has enabled studies of the distribution of different elements across an area of tissue.
Nanoparticle Nose Spray Improves Stroke Recovery in Rats
A nasal spray containing nanoparticles has been shown to boost the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation for stroke treatment and recovery.
Researchers Identify Ritalin's Effects on Dopamine in the Brain
Researchers have pinpointed how Ritalin – the drug used to treat ADHD – affects dopamine in the brain, explaining why Ritalin has varying effects on individuals.
New Insights on Brain Changes and Their Effect on Wellbeing
The exact brain networks involved in different aspects of wellbeing, including sleep, emotional and social wellbeing, have been identified.
Genomic Testing Can Identify African American Prostate Cancer Patients Who Have High-Risk Disease
Moffitt Cancer Center has conducted the first prospective study to investigate genomic biomarkers associated with aggressive disease in African American men with prostate cancer.
HDR UK and Wellcome Launch Biomedical Vacation Scholarship Programme 2022
The Wellcome-funded initiative run by Health Data Research UK to promote interest in, and broaden access to, careers in health data research has launched its 2022 program.
Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Awards Two Grants to BrainGlobe
BrainGlobe, an open-source, community-driven platform for computational neuroanatomy, has been awarded two grants from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI).
The Centre For Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi) To Acquire A TRIUX™ neo
MEGIN is pleased to announce the acquisition of a TRIUX™ neo by The Centre For Cognitive Neuroimaging at the Institute for Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow. This research facility will continue its role as the only MEG site in Scotland, continuously supporting neuroimaging related research.
