Scientists have developed a new method for detecting damaged blood vessels in the brain

Dr. Dan Milikovsky and Prof. Alon Friedman of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) have invented a new method for detecting cerebral blood flow pathologies based on the analysis of electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings, Med-Tech Innovation News reported.

Research by Professor Friedman's lab has shown that EEG has an abnormal appearance in various neurodegenerative diseases, neurological and psychiatric conditions, stroke and head trauma. Such pathological activity of the brain reflects changes and dysfunction of blood vessels. According to recent scientific evidence, these changes are a key component in the development of neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders.

The new technology was first tested on animals, and now on large databases of EEG recordings based on the data of thousands of patients.
