    Healthy ageing coincides with a progressive decline of brain gray matter (GM) ultimately affecting the entire brain. For a long time, manual delineation-based volumetry within predefined regions of interest (ROI) has been the gold standard for assessing such degeneration. Voxel-Based Morphometry...

    A definition of the term "Periaqueductal Grey" (PAG) is presented. It refers to the major part of the antinocuceptive system. It is the area of grey matter in the midbrain surrounding the central canal. When the neurons of the PAG are affected by opiods, it will lead to the stimulation of cell...

    Retinal lesions caused by eye diseases such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration can, over time, eliminate stimulation of parts of the visual cortex. This could lead to degeneration of inactive cortical neuronal tissue, but this has not been established in humans. Here, we used...

    The article presents a study which characterizes the frequency and type of grey matter (GM) lesions and sets expression profiles of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress- and hypoxia-associated markers. It shows that ER stress plays significant role in the development of GM lesion and may be crucial...
