Brain Science Flight, Piloting to a New Height!
An international consortium including Shinsuke Koike, Kiyoto Kasai, and other researchers from the University of Tokyo, used their own developed classifier to analyze scans from over 2,000 people from 21 global locations. They successfully created a machine learning tool capable of distinguishing between the onset group of high-risk individuals for psychosis and healthy controls with an accuracy exceeding 70%.
A multicenter study of National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, Tohoku University, Chiba University, Kyoto University, Kyushu University and University of Occupational and Environmental Health has advanced to identify brain morphological abnormalities in anorexia nervosa (AN) and the association with severity of AN by brain structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and to conduct exploratory analysis of the whole brain with a large sample size.
A research group of the University of Tokyo and Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science showed the first adolescent study to reveal longitudinal trajectories of the association between glutamatergic function and subclinical psychotic experiences and to elucidate the effect of commonly experienced environmental emotional/social stressors on glutamatergic function. Their findings may deepen the understanding of how environmental emotional/social stressors induce impaired glutamatergic neurotransmission that could be the underpinning of liability for psychotic experiences in early adolescence.
An international MRI consortium, ENIGMA CHR, showed that individual-level variation of macroscale morphometric measures in 1340 individuals at clinical high risk for psychosis was nested within the variation of 1237 healthy control participants.
