The technique is called 'Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging' DWMRI. It is sensitive to the different characteristics related to the...

Biomedical scientist testing nanoparticles as early cancer detection agent

...particle probes can be used as contrast markers in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in positron emission tomography (PET) for in-vivo molecular imaging, or they can be used as fluorescent tracers in optical microscopy. These tags can trace specific proteins in cells for cancer diagnosis or monitor the effec...

Pittsburgh researchers target genetic, environmental threats to maternal and fetal health

They weighed each participant and had each do a treadmill exercise test and a series of weight-training exercises to measure aerobic fitness and muscle strength. In addition, the individuals completed a...

The brain gets the big picture

...iversity of Minnesota, TwinCities, used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) tosee which parts of the brain were active as subjects lookedat different patterns and shapes. Current theories hold that a lower area of the brain calledthe primary visual cortex responds to simple features such asedges and ...

McLean Hospital and Repligen announce results of brain imaging study of secretin

The results demonstrate for the first time in humans, that secretin is active in the central nervous system and that it potentiates activity in the amygdala, a region of the brain involved in social integration and implicat...

New tool for studying animal models of neurological and psychiatric diseases

...ossible explanation for their results by comparing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans of the two strains, which showed no differences. They also confirmed the difference in D2 receptor levels between "deficient" and normal mice with traditional autoradiography, where tissue samples are labeled with ...

INEEL competes successfully for DOE EMSP funding

...m hopes to adapt a measurement technique that uses magnetic fields and pulsed radio waves to locate solvents (degreasers) in the subsurface. INEEL's new Geocentrifuge Research Laboratory will be put to use to study the theory that soil moisture content controls the chemical reactivity of contaminants in the v...

Rutgers-led consortium awarded $6.5 million by NIH for genomic research

...rrently used are X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), both of which provide 3-D representations of protein structures. The development of NMR for analyzing protein structure brought a 2002 Nobel Prize in chemistry to Swiss chemist Kurt Wuethrich and two colleagues. Wuethr...

Non-invasive imaging technique detects plaques beginning to form in vessels

...f gadolinium, which shows up as a bright spot on a magnetic resonance image (MRI). Other carriers for gadolinium hold only a few such atoms at a time, and therefore result in less bright images. In order to ensure that gadolinium highlighted only new capillaries, the team also packed the nanoparticle with mol...

Blasting antibodies with lasers provides direct way of measuring their flexibilities

...ues that allow them to "look" at proteins--nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and X-ray crystallography--cannot be used. X-ray crystallography provides only average structures, which provide no direct information on a protein's flexibility. NMR can, in principle, be used to measure a protein's flexibility, but...

Biologists raising baby loggerhead turtles for conservation find disturbing gender trend

...ng loggerhead turtles can sense and use the global magnetic field, he added. "So, based on that work, when we plop them into the Gulf Stream we think they'll be able to access the latitude and longitude," Crowder said. If additional gender results continue to contradict expectations, the scientists will be se...
