Noisy patterns of connectivity mark autism brains

by  /  29 January 2015

A new study may have solved a decade-old debate about whether the brains of people with autism are more or less connected than those of controls: They’re both, depending on where in the brain you look.

Active or at rest, brain conducts similar symphonies

by  /  5 August 2014

Researchers measure how brain networks work together by scanning volunteers’ brains either while they’re resting passively or while they’re engaged in a task. A study published 2 July in Neuron argues that the networks activated in these two scenarios are more similar than previously thought.

Resting-state maps bridge mouse models, humans

by  /  12 November 2013

Researchers have produced images of connectivity during resting-state activation, which occurs while individuals are resting quietly in a scanner, in mouse brains. The new technique was presented Monday at the 2013 Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in San Diego.
