The new approach will help early detection of nervous system defects


TSU neuroscientists are introducing a new diagnostic approach that will quantitatively evaluate myelin, the substance that makes up the sheath of nerve fibers. The scientists are searching for biomarkers of maturation and brain damage in children, including the fetus after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Their studies are aimed at reducing perinatal mortality and preventing serious diseases of the central nervous system and cognitive disorders, including autism.
