Abstract

Several studies have attempted to characterize morphological brain changes due to chronic pain. Although it has repeatedly been suggested that longstanding pain induces gray matter modifications, there is still some controversy surrounding the direction of the change (increase or decrea...read more

Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathies

Autoimmune polyendocrinopathies, also called polyglandular autoimmune syndromes (PGASs), or polyendocrine autoimmune syndromes(PASs), are a heterogeneous group of rare diseases characterized by autoimmune activity against more than one endocrine organ, although non-endocrine organs can be affected. Discover the latest research on autoimmune polyendocrinopathies here.

Neuronal and Network Dysfunction In Neurodegeneration

This feed focuses on neuronal and network dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders and the effects of tauopathies on synapses and memory.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes

This feed focuses on a rare genetic condition called Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes, which are characterized by autoantibodies against multiple endocrine organs. This can lead to Type I Diabetes.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

Functional MRI

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) images blood flow in the brain, using it as proxy for brain activity. It can also be used to look for brain abnormalities. To stay up to date on fMRI research, follow this feed.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Cerebellar Neoplasms

Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.

Neuronal Circuits for Anxiety

Anxiety is controlled by numerous and complex neuronal circuits. Discover the latest research on Neuronal Circuits for Anxiety here.

Aphasia

Aphasia affects the ability to process language, including formulation and comprehension of language and speech, as well as the ability to read or write. Here is the latest research on aphasia.

Corticobasal Degeneration

Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD)is a rare, neurodegenerative disease of the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia, characterized by movement disorders. Discover the latest research on CBD here.

Opioids & Pain

Opioids work on opioid receptors to relieve pain and other medical symptoms. Here is the latest research on the therapeutic role of opioids and opioid receptors in pain management.
