Brains Of People With Autism Are More Symmetrical

Do people with autism have differently organized brains? A large-scale MRI study reports fewer differences between the right and left hemispheres in people with an autism spectrum disorder. An international team, led by scientists from the Max Planck and Donders institutes in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and the University of Southern California, found differences in brain […]

Brain Scans May Provide Clues To Suicide Risk

What Is Emotion Regulation?Brain circuitry differences that might be associated with suicidal behavior in individuals with mood disorders nave been identified by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Utah Health. The finding[1] provides a promising lead toward tools that can predict which individuals are at the highest risk for […]

Neuroimaging Reveals Hidden Communication Between Brain Layers During Reading

Previously hidden connections between brain layers during reading have been identified in a neuroimaging study[1] by researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and the Donders Institute at Radboud University. How is a language represented in the brain? This question is challenging, as language involves many regions throughout the brain that interact in a […]

Technique Can Image Individual Proteins Within Synapses

Our brains contain millions of synapses — the connections that transmit messages from neuron to neuron. Within these synapses are hundreds of different proteins, and dysfunction of these proteins can lead to conditions such as schizophrenia and autism. Researchers at MIT and the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT have now devised a new way […]
