So-called 'bright girl effect' does not last into adulthood, study finds

(Case Western Reserve University) The notion that young females limit their own progress based on what they believe about their intelligence -- called the 'bright girl effect' -- does not persist into adulthood, according to new research from Case Western Reserve University.

Multicolor MRIs could aid disease detection

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have developed a method that could make magnetic resonance imaging—MRI—multicolor. Current MRI techniques rely on a single contrast agent injected into a patient's veins to vivify images. Show More Summary
