The images demonstrated an especially profound discordance between what was seen on clinical exam and what was indicated by neuroimaging
for one patient, previously deemed vegetative, who could communicate.

In a new report, researchers from the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging
Initiative (ADNI) not only confirmed that certain changes in biomarker levels in cerebrospinal fluid may signal the onset of mild Alzheimer's, but also established a method and standard of testing for these biomarkers.
LOS ANGELES -- A combination of noninvasive neuroimaging
studies were able to detect changes in oxidative stress, inflammation, and blood flow in the brains of patients with HIV before any changes could be identified through neuropsychological testing, reported Dr.

According to Zhihua Zou of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, neuroimaging
studies of people recalling odor; taste, visual, and auditory imagery reveal that these processes" activate brain areas that are largely overlapping with, "but not identical to," those activated by actual sensory stimuli.
