Brain charming: Music and MRI for premature babies

Date: Jun 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been used to observe changes in the brains of premature babies as when different musical instruments are played to them. The research suggests that music might help promote brain development in these infants. Music of the Indian "punji", a type of flute, seems to have the most calming effect, the researchers found.

Journal Highlight: Mapping a reliable stroke onset time course using signal intensity on DWI scans

Date: May 21, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The identification of a last known well (LKW) time surrogate for acute stroke, which is vital to increase stroke treatment, has been attempted using diffusion‐weighted imaging signal intensity measurements.

Obesity on the brain: MRI reveals differences

Date: May 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study of more than 12000 people whose brain scans are held in the UK Biobank revealed that a higher body fat percentage correlates with differences in the brain's form and structure. Higher total body fat is associated with likely changes in the white matter of men and women and for obese men, grey matter volume is also lower.

Journal Highlight: Techniques for minimizing sedation in pediatric MRI

Date: Apr 24, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

This review summarizes technical and clinical approaches for decreasing the need for sedation in the pediatric patient, including optimization of the MRI environment, noise‐reduction methods, artificial intelligence, and MRI advances to decrease both scan times and motion artifacts.

Brain navigation: MRI finds a knowledgeable route

Date: Apr 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has homed in on the brain's mental navigation system that allows it to map out knowledge as we acquire it, thanks to work undertaken at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences.

Journal Highlight: Cortical pattern of reduced perfusion in hearing loss revealed by ASL‐MRI

Date: Mar 27, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The cortical pattern of perfusion reduction measured by arterial spin labeling MRI suggested that neuronal metabolism can be related to hearing loss before the recognition of brain structural damage.

Genetic brain disorder: MRI clues

Date: Mar 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

Abnormalities evident on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans coupled with epileptic seizures are characteristic of a rare paediatric disorder. The identification by an international team of researchers of the cause of progressive neurodevelopmental epileptic encephalopathy could lead to new treatments.

Journal Highlight: Resting‐state functional MRI in Parkinsonian syndromes

Date: Feb 26, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

This educational review of the current use of resting‐state fMRI in the field of parkinsonian syndromes highlighted an urgent need to identify and validate prodromal biomarkers and to perform further studies assessing both overlapping and disease‐specific fMRI abnormalities among parkinsonian syndromes.

Shrinking brains: MRI reveals hypertension link

Date: Feb 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study has shown that for people in their twenties and thirties, there is a risk of brain shrinkage even if they have only marginally raised blood pressure.
