Brain activity and phantom limbs

Researchers conducted fMRI scans to analyse the patient's brain activity during actual and imagined movements of her healthy right hand, imagined movements of her paralysed left hand and movements of the SPL.

Tracing development of Parkinson's disease

While finding a biomarker for Parkinson's disease remains an elusive goal, researchers have shown that a non-invasive brain scanning technique offers promise.

Neural connect the dots

Researchers discovered that the captured visual information is stored as a series of locations or action plans to reach those locations.

Scientist watch proteins change shapes

The researchers demonstrate the "alpha-synuclein dance" - the switching back and forth of the protein between a bent helix and an extended helix as the surface that it is binding to changes.
