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.
