Genetically Engineered Cells Delivered Directly To The Brain

A therapeutic technique to transplant hematopoietic stem cells directly into the brain has been reported in a new study. This could represent a significant breakthrough in our approach to treating central nervous system diseases and neurodegenerative disorders. Researchers, from the Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center and the San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene […]

Brain Modularity Affects How We Perform Specific Tasks

The way your brain is structured directly affects how well you perform simple and complex tasks, a new study from Rice University suggests. The brain is arranged into different subnetworks, or “modules,” that support distinct functions for different tasks, like speaking, memorizing and expressing emotion. Rice researchers investigated how high or low brain modularity — […]
