Biomechanics of Brain Injury in Boxing

Boxing Biomechanics Study Researchers from the Center for Spine Health’s Spine Research Laboratory are joining with colleagues from Cleveland Clinic’s Concussion Center and Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health on an investigation we call the Boxing Biomechanics Study. We are using all three modalities — imaging, behavioral assessment and evaluation of impact dynamics — to […]

Whole Brain 3-D Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy: Advancing the Exploration of Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Mapping biochemical information in the brain has the potential to unlock the biochemical processes involved in neuropsychiatric disorders, which remain poorly understood. Although techniques such as proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) have yielded insight into the workings of the brain, these techniques are mostly restricted to single voxels (to obtain relatively large signal over a […]
