Pain is unique to every person, and difficult to quantify and treat. Our author examines how brain imaging is opening our eyes to the richness and complexity of the pain experience, giving us extraordinary insight into the neurochemistry, network activity, wiring, and structures relevant to producing and modulating painful experiences in all their various guises.
the recent Society for Neuroscience conference, researchers describe how increased
movement can improve measures of brain volume and white-matter connections, as
well as easing certain symptoms in people with schizophrenia and Parkinson’s.
Two decades of cumulative genetic discoveries have shed
light on the heritability of Parkinson’s disease and uncovered novel pathways
that could provide an explanation for the progressive neuronal
degeneration associated with the disease.
American College of Physicians has issued a new clinical practice guideline
