From non-invasive brain stimulation to the inner workings of fMRI, UNC researchers will study the human brain like never before to address neurological and psychiatric conditions such as depression, Alzheimer’s, and schizophrenia.
Collaboration between the UNC School of Medicine and the University of Minnesota aims to provide scientists with breakthrough information about how the human brain develops from birth through early childhood.
A study led by UNC Lineberger researchers has found that for women who have had a false-positive mammogram result, their likelihood to get screened at recommended intervals depends on the timing of their last screen. Louise Henderson, PhD, will present the findings at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Monday, April 18.
Findings suggest that radiologists studying mammograms observed suspicious markers that could have been indications of future cancer development.

UNC Cardiac Catheterization Lab reduces average radiation dose to physicians and staff by 25 percent
When technologist Mike Wolter, RT, moved from Vascular Interventional Radiology (VIR) to the Cardiac Catheterization Lab in the fall of 2012, he was reviewing radiation doses in the lab and wondered if a small reduction in the frame rate would make a difference in the long-term total radiation dose to which the cath lab employees were exposed. Here's what he found.
