    Diagnosis through the retina can predict the evolution of patients with Multiple Sclerosis

    A study led by IDIBAPS researchers has shown the usefulness of optical coherence tomography (OCT), a diagnostic imaging technique widely used in ophthalmology, for monitoring patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The analysis of the retina with this technique can determine the risk of clinical worsening of those patients. Dr. Pablo Villoslada, head of the IDIBAPS Pathogenesis and new treatments in Multiple Sclerosis, and Dr. Elena H. Martinez-Lapiscina, researcher of the same group and head of the Visual Pathway Lab, coordinate this article published in The Lancet Neurology. Researchers from centers in Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Holland, Canada and the United States have been involved in this study.

    Researchers from the IDIBAPS discover the role of an inflammatory protein in age-related macular degeneration

    Researchers from IDIBAPS have taken part in a study that delves into the role of C-reactive protein –an inflammation marker– in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). They have shown using in vitro studies that, that the monomeric form of the C-reactive protein contributes to the inflammatory process associated to DMAE. Dr. Blanca Molins has coordinated the study published in the Scientific Reports journal. She is a researcher at the Laboratory of Ocular Inflammation and Immunology at the Institut Clinic d'Oftalmologia (ICOF), in Hospital Clinic and IDIBAPS, led by Dr. Alfredo Adan.

    Order within the noise in the brain

    If we examine the activity of our brain as a whole, the first image that comes to our mind is that of a TV screen untuned: a noisy image formed by black and white dots. The question then is how can the brain work in a so orderly way? Researchers led by Jordi García-Ojalvo, head of the Dynamical Systems Biology lab and professor at the University Pompeu Fabra, and Maria V. Sánchez-Vives, ICREA research Professor at IDIBAPS where she heads the Systems Neuroscience research team, study the phenomenon of stochastic coherence in the brain. The study has been published in the journal Nature Physics.
