Download PDF The search for a mechanism that could explain how the protein complex NCOR1/2 regulates memory has revealed an unexpected connection between the lateral hypothalamus and the hippocampus, the feeding and the memory centers of the brain, respectively. The findings, which were published today in the journal Nature Neuroscience by a multidisciplinary team led […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Nerve growth factor has been playing an important role in development of adult neurobiology. This is because of the regulatory functions that it possesses on survival, growth and differentiation of nerve cells in both of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Nerve growth factor plays an action in survival and growth of peripheral, […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF November and December are defined by parties and social events. And in the U.S., alcohol is synonymous with socializing, with Americans particularly likely to overindulge during the holidays. Older people as a group have not historically imbibed during social events, particularly women. But recent evidence suggests that baby boomers may be shifting away […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF A recent study from Uppsala University has found that whether you store your fat around the trunk or in other parts of your body is highly influenced by genetic factors and that this effect is present predominantly in women and to a much lower extent in men. In the study, which is published […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF A percentage of females are born with a missing or underdeveloped vagina and uterus, and scientists are working to analyze the genes of hundreds of them to get a better idea about causes, improve genetic counseling and ideally treatment. Developmental abnormalities of the vagina and uterus occur in about 7-10 percent of women, […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Credit: CC0 Public Domain Bad decision-making is a trait oftentimes associated with drug addicts and pathological gamblers, but what about people who excessively use social media? New research from Michigan State University shows a connection between social media use and impaired risky decision-making, which is commonly deficient in substance addiction. “Around one-third of […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Researchers have taken a step closer to understanding the body’s response to opioid painkillers such as morphine and fentanyl, which could lead to the development of safer opioid drugs. Opioids are a class of powerful painkillers used to treat moderate to severe pain. They act on the nervous system, stimulating opioid receptors which […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF In the late 1950s, the treatment for fractures involved three to four months in hospital in plaster-casts and traction. Recovery was slow, and up to 70 percent of patients experienced reduced mobility upon recovery. Leading a Surgical Revolution: The AO Foundation-Social Entrepreneurs in the Treatment of Bone Trauma, tells the story of a […]Continue Reading ...
