Artificial Intelligence Predicts Eye Movements

Published

on

A large amount of information constantly flows into our brain via the eyes. Scientists can measure the resulting brain activity using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The precise measurement of eye movements during an MRI scan can tell scientists a great deal about our thoughts, memories and current goals, but also about diseases of the brain. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (MPI CBS) in Leipzig and the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Trondheim have now developed software that uses artificial intelligence to directly predict eye position and eye movements from MRI images. The method opens up rapid and cost-effective research and diagnostic possibilities, for example, in neurological diseases that often manifest as changes in eye-movement patterns.

Research Shows Why Immune Checkpoint Blockade Impedes but Does Not Stop Glioblastoma Progression

Like locking the door but opening windows, an immune checkpoint therapy temporarily slows glioblastoma (GBM) progression but fails to establish an effective anti-tumor microenvironment and appears to increase molecular interactions inhibiting long-term immune response, according to studies led by a UCLA research team.

Cancer Cells May Promote Metastases and Resistance to Therapy, Depending on Their State

Published

on

A type of cell transformation known as EMT enables cancer cells to break away from the tumor and form metastases elsewhere. However, this process does not always take place in full. Researchers at the University of Basel have now been able to show that tumor cells contribute differently to the formation of metastases and the development of therapy resistance, depending on whether they have undergone full or only partial transformation.
