In recent years, the United States has experienced a number of significant natural disasters. Several of these events happened with little or no warning. One key lesson that we have learned from these unfortunate circumstances is to “be prepared,” a message that is especially important for older Americans and people with disabilities. September is officially […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers remotely monitor subjects participating in a study at the WSU Sleep and Performance Research Center at WSU Spokane. Credit: WSU Washington State University researchers have discovered a genetic variation that predicts how well people perform certain mental tasks when they are sleep deprived. Their research shows that individuals with a particular variation of the […]Continue Reading ...
CDKL5 deficiency disorder is characterized by seizures that begin in infancy, followed by significant delays in many aspects of development. Seizures in CDKL5 deficiency disorder usually begin within the first 3 months of life, and they can appear as early as the first week after birth. The types of seizures change with age, and they […]Continue Reading ...
Illustrations of intact and spatially scrambled BM sequences, as well as the global and local BM cues conveyed by these stimuli.

Such exquisite sensitivity to biological motion […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain It is a parent’s nightmare: a child is born apparently healthy, then stops meeting developmental milestones at one year old. Her verbal and motor skills vanish, and irregular breathing, seizures, and a host of other problems appear. The cause is Rett syndrome—a devastating genetic, neurologic disorder that typically affects girls, resulting […]Continue Reading ...
Idiopathic infantile hypercalcemia is a condition characterized by high levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia). Two types of idiopathic infantile hypercalcemia have been identified and are distinguished by their genetic causes: infantile hypercalcemia 1 and infantile hypercalcemia 2. In infants with either type, hypercalcemia can cause vomiting, increased urine production (polyuria), dehydration, constipation, poor […]Continue Reading ...
CLCN2-related leukoencephalopathy is a disorder that affects the brain. People with this condition have neurological problems that become apparent anytime from childhood to adulthood; the problems generally do not worsen much over time. Most affected individuals have difficulty with coordination and balance (ataxia) but can walk without support, and many have frequent headaches. Individuals diagnosed […]Continue Reading ...
Extended shift work has historically been linked to interrupted sleep patterns and risk of injury, and is a persistent problem for emergency medical services (EMS) personnel who are tasked with delivering acute care under significant pressure. New guidelines, written by a team led by University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine scientists and published this week […]Continue Reading ...
For people with brain disorders, whether from injury or disease, rehabilitation is a complex process. Neurosexuality is an emerging area of study and practice that focuses on the relationships between brain and sexual function in individuals with and without neurological disorders. Experts on the subject, reporting in NeuroRehabilitation, discuss how sexuality can affect neurorehabilitation in […]Continue Reading ...
