Jan. 12, 2018—Vanderbilt investigators have discovered that functional MRI detects neural activity in both gray and white matter in the brain, suggesting new ways to investigate diseases such as Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.
Study finds common brain scanning technique maps electrical activity as precisely as more invasive methods
May. 25, 2017—A commonly used brain scanning technique can map electrical activity under the skull as precisely as more invasive methods that rely on probes or electrodes, researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) reported this month.
Oct. 13, 2016—In what could be a way to predict which children might be vulnerable to anxiety disorders, a Vanderbilt study has shown that an altered prefrontal cortex function in the brain marks a heightened anxiety risk in children.
Nov. 6, 2014—A new light-based technology is allowing scientists to peer deep into the brain and alter animal behavior with the “flip of a switch.”
Apr. 11, 2012—A brain-mapping study has found that people's ability to make decisions in novel situations decreases with age and is associated with a reduction in the integrity of two specific white-matter pathways.
