Brain Activity

We all may know that imaging techniques have become an integral part of the neurosciences. However, the underlying data have to be processed in elaborate ways before a colourful image informs us about brain activity. Scientists from Freiburg and colleagues were now able to demonstrate how the use of different filters may influence the resulting images and lead to contradicting conclusions. Tonio Ball of the Bernstein Center Freiburg and colleagues from the universities of ldenburg, Basel and Magdeburg demonstrate how variable the results of imaging techniques like functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) can be – depending on the way how the original data are filtered.

High blood pressure in older adults is linked with steeper decline in walking speeds

Note from winnerscience: Researchers have found a link between high blood pressure and a greater drop in average walking speeds in older adults, according to results from a new National Institutes of Health-funded study. The drop seems to occur even in study participants whose high blood pressure is successfully treated. Drastic changes in walking speed can impact a older adult ability to remain independent and indicate possible health problems. The study will appear in the March edition of the Journal of the American Geriatric Society (The Journal of the American Geriatrics Society is a comprehensive and reliable source of monthly research and information about common diseases and disorders of older adults. It is published by Wiley-Blackwell and it has 2009 impact factor of 3.656.
