The group’s MAGSTIM transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) unit funded by the St Joseph’s Health Care Foundation is used to stimulate the brain using a figure eight coil (left) and integrated ANT neuronavigation system (right) allows real time visualization of the induced electric impulses generated in the targeted cortical regions.

In a new study, scientists in London, Ontario have discovered that early marijuana use may result in abnormal brain function and lower IQ

London Health Sciences Centre - 

In a new study, scientists in London, Ontario have discovered that early marijuana use may result in abnormal brain function and lower IQ.

Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal substance in the world. Previous studies have suggested that frequent marijuana users, especially those who begin at a young age, are at a higher risk for cognitive dysfunction and psychiatric illness, including depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

London researchers are using a novel technique to more precisely define the extent of skin cancer. In the new Lawson Health Research Institute (Lawson) study, scientists found that the standard radiation margins used for treating non-melanotic skin cancer may not be large enough for all patients.
