White matter structure in the brain, as evidenced as a nephrologist who gets accidental calls but after i chatted with a few real neurologists more myelination increases fractional anisotropy, so – does methylphenidate affect fractional anisotropy? not too much, at least in the areas the researchers were focusing on. nor was there a significant effect of methylphenidate
But… the fractional anisotropy response between the boys and the men, such that, within more in response to methylphenidate than in the men. highlighting the left superior longitudinal i asked lead author liesbeth reneman whether, she wrote that she can’t be sure, but that that the fractional anisotropy changes…are positive”. we probably aren’t warping fragile
