Researcher Receives NIH Grant to Study Biomarkers of Variation in Brain Regions Important to Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Associate Scientist Melanie Carless, Ph.D., has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health to identify microRNA biomarkers in the blood and cerebrospinal fluid that are associated with changes in the brain correlated to neuropsychiatric disorders, using a non-human primate model.

When the Brain’s Wiring Breaks

TAYLOR_SPINES_BW.jpg

During head injury, a common problem is damage to axons – long stalks that grow out of the bodies of neurons. After a strong jolt to the head, axons can break or swiftly degenerate. UNC’s Anne Taylor and colleagues have revealed new molecular details of this and a path toward repairing axons.

Johns Hopkins Surgeons Perform First Real-Time Image Guided Spine Surgery

Surgeons at The Johns Hopkins Hospital have for the first time used a real-time, image-guided robot to insert screws into a patient’s spine. With last week’s surgery, Johns Hopkins joins the growing number of hospitals in the United States that offer robotic-assisted spine surgery.

Children with ADHD Likely to Have Touch-Processing Abnormalities

Children with attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) are likely to also have trouble with touch (tactile) processing. A new study finds that children with ADHD fare worse on several tests of tactile functioning, including reaction time and detecting a weak stimulus on the skin (detection threshold).
