Every day, every human on the planet is exposed to one of the most toxic substances we know. However, it’s largely invisible and most people don’t know whether they need to worry. In new book Particles in the Air, Doug Brugge aims to raise awareness of serious consequences for public health. Doug Brugge says: “Fire […]Continue Reading ...
MONDAY, Sept. 17, 2018 — Ambient particulate matter concentrations are associated with emergency/urgent care visits among individuals with asthma, according to a study published in the Aug. 1 issue of the Annals of the American Thoracic Society. Katherine A. James, Ph.D., from the University of Colorado in Denver, and colleagues assessed the impact of ambient […]Continue Reading ...
May 7, 2018 A new study identifies a molecule that may be critical to the repair of white matter, the fatty tissue wrapped around parts of brain cells that helps speed up communication. Damage to white matter is associated with several conditions, including multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy, and can occur in the brains of […]Continue Reading ...
April 4, 2018 For the first time, UNC School of Medicine researchers have used MRIs to show that babies with the neurodevelopmental condition fragile X syndrome had less-developed white matter compared to infants that did not develop the condition. Imaging various sections of white matter from different angles can help researchers focus on the underlying […]Continue Reading ...
In a paper to be published in the September 2018 issue of Biophysical Reviews and Letters, researchers have discovered that there is a correlation and possible cause and effect between otherwise invisible dark matter particles and melanoma, a type of skin cancer. This opens the door to more research in the interdisciplinary fields of physics […]Continue Reading ...
April 16, 2018 Even the briefest increase in airborne fine particulate matter PM2.5, pollution-causing particles that are about 3 percent of the diameter of human hair, is associated with the development of acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI) in young children, according to newly published research. Increases in PM2.5 levels also led to increased doctor […]Continue Reading ...
March 28, 2018 UTA researchers are leading an international team developing a new device that could enable physicists to take the next step toward a greater understanding of the neutrino, a subatomic particle that may offer an answer to the lingering mystery of the universe’s matter-antimatter imbalance. Physics tells us that matter is created side […]Continue Reading ...
