Constricting Actin Spheres Accelerate Injured Axons Disintegration

The same mechanism by which damaged peripheral nerves can regenerate after an injury could be activated in cells of the central nervous system – after a spinal cord injury, for instance, new research indicates. “An injury in the peripheral nervous system quickly triggers the activation of a fascinating repair process that allows the injured nerve […]

Intracranial Hemorrhage Diagnosed By Artificial Intelligence System

A system using artificial intelligence to quickly diagnose and classify brain hemorrhages and to provide the basis of its decisions from relatively small image datasets has been developed by a team from the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Department of Radiology. Such a system could become an indispensable tool for hospital emergency departments evaluating patients with […]

Microstructural Brain Alterations Caused By Playing High School Football

As little as one single season of high school football may be sufficient to result in microscopic changes in the structure of the brain, a new study by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill indicates. The researchers used a new type of magnetic […]

Single Cell Sequencing Uncovers Potential Brain Injury Treatment Targets

Researchers at UCLA used single cell sequencing to look in real time at how head injury affects thousands of individual cells and genes simultaneously in mice. This approach could lead to precise treatments for traumatic brain injury (TBI). “Instead of clustering responses according to categories of cells in TBI, we can now see how individual […]
