At the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, AZ, neuroradiologist Lea Alhilai, MD, used DTI to look at the white matter of the brain in people who suffered a concussion to better understand why symptoms vary widely across patients.
The imaging detected abnormal white matter tracts in the SPD subjects that serve as connections for the auditory, visual and somatosensory (tactile) systems involved in sensory processing, including their connections between the left and right halves of the brain.
Erythropoietin Improves Oligodendrocyte Survival after Hyperoxia but Does Not Influence Hypomyelination and Long-Term Structural White Matter Injury.

Sixth patient with right arm weakness, had bilatereal subcortical white matter hyperintense signal lesions.
If it is established that white matter lesions are the predominant cause of paresis in most hemispheric strokes, then neurobiological strategies aimed at mitigating axonal damage and promoting axonal regrowth will be the greatest priority, as will the development of animal models to advance such strategies.
A new study suggests that damage to the white matter of the brain (the "wiring" of the brain, nourished by myriad small blood vessels, that functions as a communications network among neurons) may be necessary for the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD).
Previous research has shown that children with overdeveloped white matter have problems transmitting and interpreting sound because the white matter it is out of sync with the rest of the brain.
A tool which is also applicable for diagnosing white matter disorders and offering prognosis in children with global white matter insults will have a wide clinical application.
The researchers determined that lower fitness levels were associated with weaker white matter, which in turn correlated with lower brain function.
