While patient-reported outcomes are becoming increasingly standard in clinical trials, their impact still needs to be fully understood. Clinical trials, like peer-reviewed journals, face scrutiny and require rigorous analysis before results can be considered confirmatory.
Neurological conditions can be challenging to diagnose when many symptoms affect brain function and behaviors, which can be obscured or misinterpreted as other diagnoses. In many cases, diagnoses overlap, with multiple conditions responsible for a patient’s symptoms.
An estimated half of autism diagnoses concur with epilepsy, but researchers don’t fully understand why.
Fields of the mind and brain: Neurology, neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry. How do they differ?
Terms in medicine and science can often be challenging to understand. The fields related to the mind and nervous are no different. Neuroscience, neurology, psychology, psychiatry — you’ve probably heard all of these terms before but do you know how they differ?
Walk down the street and see a living gallery full of bright colors, quippy messages, and eye-popping displays. To stay ahead of the competition, brand agencies utilize many design and copywriting tools- and scientific research- to connect brands with the right consumers.
Omics data and clinical measures: Harnessing the power of technology to advance clinical understanding of chronic conditions
Omics as a field considers sets of data in a dynamic, comprehensive manner, where sets of data influence and are influenced by other sets of data. Perhaps, omics is better understood as a way to organize knowledge.
How neurons give the nervous system its powerful abilities and how neurological conditions lead to impaired nervous system function
Neurological conditions are conditions that have a directly negative impact on the nervous system. But not every neurological condition is due to the same pathophysiology or affects the same part of the nervous system, nor do all neurological conditions present identically (or even similarly) in the clinic.
The brain is the lens through which we experience the world around us. Through processes of input and learning, the brain retains relevant information and can make decisions and take action based on that information.
