Dynamic neurocircuit loop discovered in multimodal semantic processing

A neurocircuit loop in multimodal semantic integration was recently found by a research team led by Dr. Du Yi from the Institute of Psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) using non-invasive chronometric transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technique. For the first time, by revealing temporal dynamics of frontal lobe control and temporal representation regions, […]

Assay for patient-specific monitoring and treatment for ovarian cancer

Around 870 cases of ovarian cancer are reported in Belgium every year. Most of these patients are treated with surgical interventions and/or chemotherapy. Molecule-specific therapy or immunotherapy are some of the latest approaches that have been investigated recently for ovarian cancer treatment, but with no major breakthroughs in overcoming this challenging disease. Now, a new […]

Blood-based biomarkers for brain tumours

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), along with collaborators, have identified potential blood-based biomarkers to predict disease progression and survival times in those with late-stage brain tumors. The team included researchers from the Centre for BioSystems Science and Engineering (BSSE) at IISc, the Mazumdar Shaw Centre for Translational Research and Mazumdar Shaw Medical […]

Quantum brain sensors could be crucial in spotting dementia after scientists find they can track brain waves

The quantum scanners being developed by the scientists can detect the magnetic fields generated when neurons fire. Measuring moment-to-moment changes in the brain, they track the speed at which signals move across the brain. This time-element is important because it means a patient could be scanned twice several months apart to check whether the activity […]
