In order to slow the accumulation of white matter lesions, researchers reveal that it is more effective to intensively control a person’s blood pressure compared to the standard care of high blood pressure.
Chronic active lesions (‘smoldering’ spots) may be a hallmark for progressive forms of multiple sclerosis, a recently published study suggests.
MRI scans of individuals living with multiple sclerosis could predict how the disease will progress in the following years. This information could potentially be useful when considering treatment options.
A new MRI-based calcium sensor has been developed by researchers, which will allow them to peer much deeper into the brain.
Researchers have developed a personalized neurological footprint, which uses a link between brain physiology, genetic profile and response to therapeutics, to predict the effectiveness of aiming treatment at various targets within individual patients.
Scientists reveal that a new link between diminished input from dopamine-firing cells and the ability to form new memories could be crucial in detecting the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study sheds light on a genetic polymorphism that may play a role in major depressive disorder.
A study at University Hospital Mannheim and Heidelberg University has indicated that migraine sufferers have significantly higher concentrations of sodium present in their cerebrospinal fluid than non-sufferers.
Researchers have discovered that a simple blood test to detect a nerve protein, neurofilament light chain, may be an efficient way to monitor symptoms in patients with relapsing-remitting MS.
A cross-sectional imaging study has uncovered differences in brain structure in players of contact sports.
