The National Institute of Health awards Cortechs.ai a multimillion grant to quantify microstructural changes in Alzheimer’s Disease using Restriction Spectrum Imaging.
SAN DIEGO – August 29, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
Cortechs.ai has received a $1.35 million, 2.5-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute on Aging to advance Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) diagnosis. The grant will allow Cortechs.ai to deliver an automated AI solution in a clinical setting to enable physicians to quickly determine a patient’s risk of developing AD and monitor disease progression and response to treatment.
“We are thrilled to receive support from the NIA to further advance this promising technology in the area of Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis,” said Nathan White, CTO of Cortechs.ai and co-inventor of Restriction Spectrum Imaging. “The development of new therapeutics for prevention and treatment of the disease would greatly benefit from robust, objective quantitative imaging biomarkers that reflect subtle underlying pathological brain changes that occur early in the disease process.”
Alzheimer’s Disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by β-amyloid deposits and neurofibrillary tangles preceding neuronal loss and cognitive decline. While diffusion imaging has been used effectively in diseases involving specific white matter pathways, the recent advances in diffusion imaging techniques – particularly multi-compartmental models for successfully quantifying microstructural changes – now enable the effective use of diffusion imaging in Alzheimer’s Disease. The project aims to use an advanced diffusion MRI technique called Restriction Spectrum Imaging to quantify the subtle microstructural changes in Alzheimer’s patients’ brains, making it possible to detect pathological changes in the brain without an autopsy.
Cortechs Labs holds the patent on “Restriction Spectrum Imaging.” The project titled “Quantifying microstructural changes in Alzheimer’s Disease using Restriction Spectrum Imaging” is one of many projects for which Cortechs.ai received research grants.
Cortechs.ai develops and markets breakthrough medical device software solutions capable of automatically segmenting and quantifying brain structures, making quantitative analysis of the human brain a routine part of clinical practice. Cortechs.ai’s cutting-edge brain imaging analysis provides neurologists, radiologists, and clinical researchers worldwide with a convenient and cost-effective means to quantify subcortical structures to help assess a variety of neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, brain trauma, and brain development abnormalities.

Experience extreme full-contact indoor and outdoor haunted attractions at Fright Nights’ new address starting on Sept. 23, 2022
LEXINGTON, Ky. – August 29, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
Fright Nights Kentucky, the only indoor haunted house and attraction in Lexington, Kentucky, today announced that it will be unveiling its upgraded 2022 indoor and outdoor haunted attractions at a brand new address located at 1209 E New Circle Road, Suite 190, Lexington, KY 40505.
Since 2011, Fright Nights has provided haunt and horror enthusiasts across Kentucky with an extreme haunted house experience that is immersive, shocking, and distinctly original year in and year out. And starting on Friday, Sept. 23, 2022, Fright Nights is ready to push the limits of fear even further by embracing the creative possibilities provided by their new location.
“Every year of Fright Nights offers a fresh opportunity to raise the stakes and unleash new strategies to scare visitors in unpredictable ways,” said Greg Walker, Owner of Fright Nights Kentucky. “We pride ourselves on quickly adapting to emerging trends in the haunt and horror industries so that our attractions remain intense and surprising to new visitors and every-year attendees alike. And since our spacious new location supports both indoor and outdoor haunted attractions and countless possibilities for creative scene constructions, we’re excited to provide the most dynamic, disorienting, and horrifying haunted house experience humanly possible during this 2022 season and beyond. We’re fully prepared to give our attendees the adrenaline rushes they came for.”
The indoor attraction, “Chambers,” features an array of disorienting chambers, twisted corridors, survival challenges, and downright gruesome creatures, while the outdoor attraction, “13 Doors,” transports visitors through frantically shifting horror scenes filled with different phobias, demented creatures, and surprising special effects. Both attractions will be open rain or shine.
Tickets will be sold as cash-only from the ticket booth on location, where an ATM is available. Ticket prices are $29 for a single attraction and $39 for a double attraction—with tax already included in both totals. And those wanting to avoid standing in line can purchase a Speed Pass for an additional $10 (tax included).
From opening night on Friday, Sept. 23, 2022, Fright Nights Kentucky will be open on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 p.m.-12 a.m. and Sundays from 8 p.m.-10 p.m. Monday, October 31 is the final night of Fright Nights 2022 with operating hours from 8 p.m.-10 p.m. The ticket booth will open at 7:30 p.m. on all event nights, and as long as attendees are in the ticket line before closing time, they will be guaranteed admission into the attraction(s).
