Looking at the cross-sectional studies assessing age effects upon cortical thickness asymmetry, results have been inconsistent. The study authors investigated whether and where cerebral hemispheres thin at different rates.
According to this study, some training programs have tried to teach autistic people to act more like non-autistic people to help them gain acceptance. Fewer programs have focused on teaching non-autistic people how to be more autism friendly.
Functional connectivity between the insula and precuneus may be linked to cognitive function in patients with isolated REM sleep behavior disorder.
Study researchers assessed the brain connectivity patterns in the interictal phase of migraine and its relationship to migraine severity.
The researchers aimed to describe the prevalence of pre-cluster (premonitory) symptoms and examine the predictability of an upcoming cluster headache bout.
This study explores symptoms of depression and anxiety and social support in pregnant women during the COVID-19 lockdown, in addition to looking at demographic risk factors.
This articles looks at the short-term and long-term efficacy of guided and unguided iCBT for depression using patient-level information.
Researchers investigated closure of the patent foramen ovale (PFO) as a potential treatment for migraine.
Nonstenotic intracranial plaque likely has an etiologic role in embolic stroke of undetermined source.
Study researchers used source-based morphometry to characterize gray matter atrophy and its 1-year evolution across different multiple sclerosis phenotypes.
Two expert physicians with opposing viewpoints debate the risks and benefits of using cannabinoids for treating neuropathic and chronic pain.
While plasma phosphorylated tau at threonine 181 (p-tau181) has been proposed as an easily accessible biomarker for the detection of Alzheimer disease (AD) pathology, its ability to monitor disease progression in AD remains unclear.
A team of researchers investigated the relationships between multiple sclerosis characteristics and therapeutic lag on relapses and disease accumulation in this this patient population.
The goals of this study were to identify functional connectome fingerprints that predict symptom improvement with any treatment and with specific treatment.
Investigators from the CDC determined that the proportion of SARS-CoV-2 transmission in the community is likely to occur from individuals who are asymptomatic.
Antisense oligonucleotide golodirsen may be associated with reduced pathologic regeneration in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
A team of researchers investigated seizure frequency and medication dose alteration in pregnant and nonpregnant women with epilepsy.

Investigators assessed whether clinical outcomes among patients with COVID-19 differ by race and observed disparities associated with comorbidity and neighborhood characteristics.
Researchers investigated the potential of long-term immunotherapy for the prevention of disability accumulation in patients with relapsing-remitting MS.
The Alzheimer Europe group has formulated 4 key areas the European Commission may target to reduce the incidence, cost of care, delays in diagnoses, and stigma of this complex disease.
Despite the many loci associated with late-onset Alzheimer disease, researchers are still short of a robust, unified method of risk stratification based on genome variations due to the clinical heterogeneity and polygenic nature of the disease.
Recently updated diagnostic criteria for fibromyalgia that reduce the underdiagnosis in men had not been implemented during these studies.
Researchers investigated the incidence and risk factors of restless legs syndrome in pregnancy and their relationship to race and ethnicity.
Pfizer and BioNTech release safety and efficacy data from phase 2/3 trials for their COVID-19 mRNA vaccine.
Further research is needed to identify possible interventions that may mitigate the racial disparities seen in COVID-19.
Researchers sought to determine whether educational intervention can decrease therapeutic inertia by reducing autonomic arousal response (pupil dilation), a proxy measurement of how physicians respond to uncertainty during clinical decisions.
