Semantically Parcelled PET Images Classified Neurological Disorders

A study investigated the efficacy of focusing on localized PET-active areas for classification purposes. In this work, they propose a pipeline using learned features from semantically labeled PET images to perform group classification. Early identification of dementia in the early or late stages of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is crucial for a timely diagnosis and slowing down the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD).

Gene Loss Causes Accumulation of Waste Products in Cells

MIT biologists have discovered a function of a gene that is believed to account for up to 40% of all familial cases of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Studies of ALS patients have shown that an abnormally expanded region of DNA in a specific region of this gene can cause the disease
