Multimodal neuroimaging assessments were utilized to identify generalizable brain correlates of current body mass index (BMI) and predictors of pathological weight gain (i.e., beyond normative development) one year later. Read More

Background: While previous studies have implicated white matter (WM) as a core pathology of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), the underlying neurobiological processes remain elusive. This study utilizes free-water imaging derived from diffusion MRI to identify cellular and extracellular WM abnormalities in patients with OCD compared to controls (Cs). Next, we investigate the association between diffusion measures, and clinical variables in patients. Read More

Despite technological advances in endovascular therapy, surgical clipping of paraclinoid aneurysms remains an indispensable treatment option and has an acceptable profile risk. Intraoperative monitoring of motor and somatosensory evoked potentials has proven to be an effective tool in predicting and preventing postoperative motor deficits during aneurysm clipping.1,2 We describe the case of a 61-yr-old Japanese woman with a history of hypertension and smoking.

Background: Friedreich ataxia is an inherited neurodegenerative disease, with cerebral and cerebellar pathology evident. Despite an increased understanding of its neuropathology, disease progression in this disease remains poorly understood. This study aimed to characterise longitudinal change in brain structure using a multi-modal approach across cerebral and cerebellar grey and white matter. Read More

Sports-related concussion (SRC) is a serious health concern. However, the temporal profile of neuropathophysiological changes after SRC and how these relate to biological sex are still poorly understood. This preliminary study investigated whether diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) was sensitive to neuropathophysiological changes following SRC; whether these changes were sex-specific; and whether they persisted beyond the resolution of self-reported symptoms.
