MRI Finds Spinal Cord Changes in Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique can detect the changes in resting-state spinal cord function in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), researchers from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center reported in the journal Brain.

This first application of these measures in patients living with MS, could lead to new ways to monitor the effectiveness of drug treatment and physical therapy in slowing or stopping the progression of this chronic and often debilitating disease.

New Glioblastoma Model Using Human Cerebral Organoids

Salk Institute scientists developed a new glioblastoma model using CRISPR/Cas9 manipulation in human cerebral organoids. The model, reported in the Cell Reports, could be used as a platform for tumor formation and allows researchers to study tumor progression, investigate new drugs or even personalize treatments for patients.
