Photo: woman yawning while lying in bed [30/10/2014] An imaging study by Stanford University School of Medicine investigators has found distinct differences between the brains of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and those of healthy people. The findings could lead to more definitive diagnoses of the syndrome and may also point to an underlying mechanism in the disease process.

Photo: fMRT picture of a baby in uterus [27/10/2014] New investigation methods using functional magnetic resonance tomography (fMRT) offer insights into fetal brain development. These "in vivo" observations will uncover different stages of the brain's development. A research group at the Computational Imaging Research Lab from the MedUni Vienna has observed that parts of the brain that are later responsible for sight are already active.Researchers observe brain development in utero - Read more

Graphic: Human brain with a central region highlighted [15/10/2014] Parkinson's disease is strongly linked to the degeneration of the brain's movement center. In the last decade, the question of where the disease begins has led researchers to a different part of the human anatomy.Disputed theory on Parkinson's origin strengthened - Read more
