The Midnight Scan Club: Understanding brain networks, one brain at a time

Shared by:

 
In a quest to better understand individual brain networks on a stringent budget, researchers from Washington University utilised the university’s MRI scanners after hours – forming the Midnight Scan Club. Their findings have proven that each brain’s circuitry is different, challenging the conventional spatial averaging methodology.

Madhubabu kaaja Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Their will to finish the study is indeed remarkable. Moreover, their study conclusions will be a vital framework for future studies concerning upper motor neuron disorders. This study explains one of the factors (individualized cortical organization) why every manifestation of stroke is different even if there is an infarct of the same size on the same spot of a...

This is a nice study done by a group of researchers from the Washington University. Their resourcefulness in finishing the study on a limited budget by making extra midnight effort should be lauded too. The observers found out something that will very well be crucial to management of brain disorders- no two brains are alike. The connections, pathways, corrugations, and sulci are different for each one of us; hence, an individual-based approach when dealing with brain disorders is the first order...
