Abstract

Rapid myelin water imaging (MWI) using a combined gradient and spin echo (GRASE) sequence can produce myelin specific metrics for the human brain. Spinal cord MWI could be similarly useful, but technical challenges have hindered routine application. GRASE rapid MWI was recently successf...read more

ALS: Prions

Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Prion-like mechanisms are associated with the pathogenesis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are serious and can cause temporary or permanent changes including loss of muscle function, sensation, or autonomic functions. Here is the latest research.

Myelin Plasticity

Myelin plasticity, as another form of activity-dependent plasticity, is relevant not only to nervous system development but also to complex information processing tasks that involve coupling and synchrony among different brain rhythms. Several cellular, molecular, and epigenetic mechanisms have been investigated as contributors to myelin plasticity. Find the latest research on myelin plasticity here.

Multiple Sclerosis: Diagnostic Methods

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the CNS, resulting in symptoms including optic neuritis and motor weakness. Here is the latest research on development and application of methods for diagnosis of MS.

Paraneoplastic Syndromes of the Nervous System

Paraneoplastic disorders of the nervous system are syndromes that affect diverse organs systems (including endocrine, neurologic, dermatologic systems, etc.) that occur in association with systemic cancer. Here is the latest research.

Motor Neuron Disease

Motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and spinal muscular atrophy are progressive neurodegenerative diseases that result in the death of motor neurons. Discover the latest research on motor neuron disease here.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the CNS, resulting in symptoms including optic neuritis and motor weakness. Discover the latest research on Multiple Sclerosis here.

Imaging Mass Spectrometry

Imaging mass spectrometry enables the visualization and assessment of the spatial distribution of molecules, including biomarkers and metabolites, based on their molecular mass. Here is the latest research.

Transverse Myelitis

Transverse myelitis is inflammation of the entire width of the spinal cord. It presents as motor, sensory, or autonomic dysfunction. The cause is not known, but it has been associated with various infections, immune disorders, and demyelination. Find the latest research on transverse myelitis here.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Neuromyelitis Optica

Neuromyelitis optica is an inflammatory disease characterized by selective demyelination of the spinal cord and optic nerves. Discover the latest research on neuromyelitis optica here.

MS: Therapies

The feed focuses on therapeutic interventions used to treat Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis: Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging has been used to diagnose and monitor the disease progression in multiple sclerosis. MRI has improved the management of MS patients and provided information on the level of atrophy in the brain and the severity of the disease. Discover the latest research on multiple sclerosis imaging here.
