A new method for reducing anxiety based on neurofeedback has been validated in the current issue of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics. Deficient emotion regulation and exaggerated anxiety represent a major transdiagnostic psychopathological marker. On the neural level these deficits have been closely linked to impaired, yet treatment-sensitive, prefrontal regulatory control over the amygdala. Gaining direct control […]Continue Reading ...

Neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease are a major public health issue, especially given the aging population in Europe and beyond. Parkinson’s now affects more than 1 900 people per 100 000 among those aged 80 and older. While a permanent cure for Parkinson’s and similar neurological diseases is not yet in sight, cell-replacement therapies […]Continue Reading ...
Using data from Bristol’s Children of the 90s study the research is one of a series from the University of Bristol, that examines a parental personality attribute known as the ‘locus of control’. This is a psychological measure of how much someone believes that they have control over the outcome of events in their life […]Continue Reading ...
Using the CRISPR gene editing tool, Nikolay Kandul, Omar Akbari and their colleagues at UC San Diego and UC Berkeley devised a method of altering key genes that control insect sex determination and fertility. A description of the new “precision-guided sterile insect technique,” or pgSIT, is published Jan. 8 in the journal Nature Communications. When […]Continue Reading ...
Home News Professional Impact of Fructose Varies With Energy Control, Food Source MONDAY, Dec. 3, 2018 — Energy control and food source appear to mediate the effect of fructose-containing sugars on glycemic control, according to a review published online Nov. 21 in The BMJ. Vivian L. Choo, from St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, and colleagues […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain As populations age and hospitalization and long-term care become more common, healthcare-associated infections, including many caused by drug-resistant pathogens, are increasing in importance and pose a significant threat to patient safety. Patients who are discharged to the community and later re-hospitalized can spread infection and colonization from one healthcare facility to […]Continue Reading ...
THURSDAY, March 7, 2019 — Eating red raspberries may help with glucose control in people with prediabetes, according to a small study published online Feb. 14 in Obesity. Di Xiao, from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, and colleagues investigated the effect of red raspberry intake on meal-induced postprandial metabolic responses in 21 participants […]Continue Reading ...
A new study published in the Journal of Gerontology Series A has found that eating 200g of blueberries every day for a month can lead to an improvement in blood vessel function and a decrease in systolic blood pressure in healthy people. Researchers from King’s College London studied 40 healthy volunteers for one month. They […]Continue Reading ...
Research shows our spinal cords contribute to sophisticated hand function We often think of our brains as being at the center of complex motor function and control, but how ‘smart’ is your spinal cord? Turns out it is smarter than we think. It is well known that the circuits in this part of our nervous […]Continue Reading ...
