The Myelin Sheath, Practice and Intelligence

The Battlefords News-Optimist - May 11, 2017
The brain is made up of white matter and grey matter. That grey matter is your neuron cell bodies, grey in colour. The white matter is myelin. Myelin is about 50 per cent of our brain and it exists to allow signals to send information more efficiently.

Could targeting myelin treat binge eating?

Futurity: Research News - May 5, 2017
Researchers have identified a gene in mice associated with binge eating, a new study suggests. The team may have also found evidence that binge eating alters the makeup of proteins in the brain. Recent technological developments, such as whole genomeĀ ...

SyMRI approach provides myelin maps in scan times of only 5 minutes

News-Medical.net - May 2, 2017
One such an example is the detection of myelin in the brain. Myelin rapidly evolves during childhood. However, disease and aging may cause degradation, which impairs the signal transmission in the nerves and may lead to atrophy and brain dysfunction.

Our thanks go to our colleagues at the VU Univer- Preface to the Third Edition sity Medical Center and to those in other hospitals Reading through the prefaces of the two previous edi- who referred their patients to us. We are indebted to tions,we can say that much of what was said there still all colleagues who allowed us to use their MR images, holds. At the same time,however,much has changed. published or unpublished,making it possible for us to There has been immense progress in the technical present illustrations of nearly all known white matter possibilities of magnetic resonance and in the know- disorders.

Myelin Biology and Disorders, Two-Volume Set

With the completion of the "Human Genome Project" and the cloning and complete molecular description of the known myelin genes, the stage has been set for a detailed understanding of the biology of myelin, the disease processes affecting myelin and the potential for myelin repair and regeneration. Myelin Biology and Disorders brings together in one place, the recent advances in molecular and cellular biology along with visual data from MRI, confocal microscopy and high voltage EM techniques to provide new insights into disease mechanisms.
