Associations between corpus callosum damage, clinical disability, and surface-based homologous inter-hemispheric connectivity in multiple sclerosis

Axonal damage in the corpus callosum is prevalent in multiple sclerosis (MS). Although callosal damage is associated with disrupted functional connectivity between hemispheres, it is unclear how this relates to cognitive and physical disability.

Meditation-induced effects on whole-brain structural and effective connectivity

In the past decades, there has been a growing scientific interest in characterizing neural correlates of meditation training. Nonetheless, the mechanisms underlying meditation remain elusive. In the present work, we investigated meditation-related …

Assessment of structural disconnections in gliomas: comparison of indirect and direct approaches

Gliomas are amongst the most common primary brain tumours in adults and are often associated with poor prognosis. Understanding the extent of white matter (WM) which is affected outside the tumoral lesion may be of paramount importance to explain …

Comparative anatomical analysis of dopamine systems in Mus musculus and Peromyscus californicus

Dopamine plays important roles in motivational and social behaviors in mammals, and it has been implicated in several human neurological and psychiatric disorders. Rodents are used extensively as experimental models to study dopamine function in …

The association between vitamin B12 and plasma homocysteine levels with episodic memory and the volume of memory related brain structures in middle-aged individuals: a retrospective correlational study

In previous studies, decreased vitamin B12 and increased plasma homocysteine levels were reported as risk factors for dementia. The aim of this study was to clarify this relationship in earlier ages. Twenty-one healthy middle-aged adults (9 …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Brain Structure & Function offers free color in print and online for all its papers!

  • Brain Structure & Function publishes research that provides insight into brain structure−function relationships. Studies published here integrate data spanning from molecular, cellular, developmental, and systems architecture to the neuroanatomy of behavior and cognitive functions. BS&F does not publish purely clinical or neuropathological papers except in cases where the work actually contributes to the understanding of normal brain structure and function. Research on the peripheral nervous system is not the focus of BS&F.
  • Studies of the mammalian nervous system are central to the journal, yet coverage may range beyond this taxon. Methodologies include modern tracing, immunocytochemistry and neuroimaging as well as genetic methods, neuroinformatics (atlases, databases and internet tools), statistical techniques that support the integration of cellular and systems-level anatomical and functional data, and genetic/molecular/electrophysiological approaches to understanding brain organization.
  • The journal publishes full-length papers, short communications (maximum five printed pages including figures and references), reviews and letters to the editors that foster a vivid discussion of current topics.
  • Methods papers that fit into the mission of the journal are also welcome.
