Pediatric patients with chronic kidney disease have higher global cerebral blood flow and regional differences in cerebral blood flow

Cerebral Blood Flow Changes in Pediatric Patients With CKD

Pediatric patients with CKD showed higher global CBF attributed to reduced hematocrit level
People who feel younger than their age show fewer signs of brain aging than those who feel their age or older than their age

Feeling Young May Be Reflected in Brain Structure

Those who feel younger than their real age actually have less brain aging
Higher average late-life blood pressure is associated with an increased number of brain infarcts

Late-Life Blood Pressure Tied to Higher Number of Brain Infarcts

Odds of having one or more infarcts also increased with more rapidly declining SBP slope over time
A new approach to getting drugs through the blood-brain barrier in Alzheimer's patients shows early promise

Focused Ultrasound May Briefly Open Blood-Brain Barrier

Finding could be a game-changer for the treatment of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's
Compassion meditation can increase the visual preference for suffering while attenuating neural responses in regions of the brain associated with valence and empathic distress

Compassion Training May Up Resilience to Others’ Suffering

Decreases neural responses in amygdala, regions sensitive to valence, empathic distress
Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with changes to the structure of the brain that are seen in the early stages of dementia

Sleep Apnea Linked to Changes in the Brain in Older Adults

Disturbed sleep linked to increased thickness in right postcentral gyrus, pericalcarine, pars opercularis
Brain volume loss has nonlinear dynamics and limited reproducibility as a marker of therapeutic response in multiple sclerosis

Dynamics of Brain Volume Loss Vary With MS Progression

Limited reproducibility of estimates seen using different imaging methods
For an unselected memory clinic cohort

Amyloid PET Tied to Diagnostic Changes in Memory Clinic Cohort

Changes in suspected etiology and treatment post-amyloid positron emission tomography
Foods containing fat and carbohydrate are more highly valued than those with only fat or carbohydrate

Foods With Fat and Carbohydrate Are More Highly Valued

Potentiated reward tied to response in areas critical for reward valuation, including dorsal striatum
Neurologic outcomes in children with diabetic ketoacidosis are similar regardless of the rate of administration or the sodium chloride content of intravenous fluids

IV Fluid Specs Do Not Influence Neuro Outcomes in Kids w/DKA

Infusion rate, % sodium chloride don't affect neuro outcomes in children with diabetic ketoacidosis
