Nov. 10, 2020—Imaging science experts at Vanderbilt develop deep learning tool to remove distortions in MRI images, decreasing patient time in MRI scanner and correcting legacy images used for teaching.
Mar. 14, 2019—Though neurological activity is generally associated with the brain's gray matter, Muwei Li and colleagues have now measured it in white matter as well.
Mar. 28, 2014—Vanderbilt investigators have used two types of neuroimaging to establish a “map” of connections for a brain region important in anxiety and addiction.
Jul. 12, 2013—Certain MRI metrics can be used to assess myelin loss in multiple sclerosis, which is important for planning and monitoring therapy.
Jun. 24, 2013—Researchers are developing imaging methods to predict patient outcome early in the course of chemotherapy for breast cancer – to allow clinicians to adjust therapy for patients who are not responding.
Jun. 20, 2013—Osteomyelitis, a debilitating bone infection most frequently caused by Staphylococcus aureus (“staph”) bacteria, is particularly challenging to treat.
Jun. 19, 2013—A team of Vanderbilt researchers has provided important validation of maps of the brain at rest that may offer insights into changes in the brain that occur in neurological and psychiatric diseases.
Apr. 4, 2013—The latest research on imaging infectious diseases will be discussed during a mini-symposium noon to 5 p.m., April 12, at the Vanderbilt Student Life Center Board of Trust Room.
Dec. 21, 2012—Even relatively low levels of in utero alcohol exposure impact fetal brain development, and the effects last into adulthood, study finds.
Aug. 9, 2012—A new 3-D view of the body’s response to infection — and the ability to identify proteins involved in the response — could point to novel biomarkers and therapeutic agents for infectious diseases.
May. 30, 2012—Vanderbilt is launching the country's first doctorate in the emerging field of educational neuroscience.
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.
