Liver damage is caused by the hepatocytes death, the main type of liver cells that secure the functioning of the organ. (2020-01-20)

Brain activity patterns linked with improved learning and memory in multiple sclerosis
'The decreased brain activation seen in this study may be a sign of more efficient processing after treatment,' said Dr. Boukrina. 'At baseline, individuals with MS often show hyperactivation during cognitive tasks which may be a necessary compensation in order to complete the task. After treatment, the task becomes less demanding, and this may account for the reduction in activation.' Identifying the brain regions associated with improvements in learning and memory may foster investigation into other modalities that may augment this effect on activation. (2020-01-20)
