In the Middle of Brain Surgery, Patients Wake up and Begin Talking

Patients undergoing brain surgery sometimes are awakened during surgery to talk, so surgeons can steer clear of critical areas. Recent improvements in surgical techniques are improving outcomes.

Research Investigates Rebuilding Identity When Communication Is Impaired

In Neurogenic Communication Disorders: Life Stories and the Narrative Self, University of Arkansas researchers challenge readers to explore “the messy but powerful relationships between communication impairment and maintenance of a viable sense of self.”

Healthy Older Brains Not Significantly Smaller than Younger Brains

The belief that healthy older brains are substantially smaller than younger brains may stem from studies that did not screen out people whose undetected, slowly developing brain disease was killing off cells in key areas, according to new research. As a result, previous findings may have overestimated atrophy and underestimated normal size for the older brain.

Researchers Find Two More Genetic Risk Factors for Alzheimer's Disease

An international team of scientists has identified two more genetic risk factors for Alzheimer's disease. The group, led by investigators from the School of Medicine at Cardiff in the United Kingdom and including scientists from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, completed the largest genome-wide association study ever involving patients with Alzheimer's disease. The study pooled DNA samples from more than 19,000 older European and U.S. residents. Seven thousand had Alzheimer's disease, and the others had no clinical symptoms of the disorder.
