A new, easy-to-use EEG electrode set for the measurement of the electrical activity of the brain was developed in a recent study completed at the University of Eastern Finland. The solutions developed in the PhD study of Pasi Lepola, MSc, make it possible to attach the electrode set on the patient quickly, resulting in reliable […]

Individual differences in early language development, and in later language functioning, are associated with changes in the anatomy of the brain in autism. A new study led by researchers from the University of Cambridge has found that a common characteristic of autism — language delay in early childhood — leaves a ‘signature’ in the brain. […]
York University researchers say a simple test that combines thinking and movement can help to detect heightened risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease in a person, even before there are any telltale behavioral signs of dementia. Faculty of Health Professor Lauren Sergio and PhD candidate Kara Hawkins who led the study asked the participants to complete […]
Patients with chronic lower back pain and opioid addiction show regional brain activity on MRI that corresponds with disease severity, as well as changes in behavioral therapy, compared with patients who did not receive the therapy, a new study shows. “Clinically, our findings imply that these regions and connections between regions are likely some of […]
