A small proof-of-principal study by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center found an automated speech analysis program was able to differentiate between at-risk young people who developed psychosis and those who did not, with 100 percent accuracy.
Researchers say they have discovered some of the first steps in how a very common gene mutation...
New findings suggest hope for preventing a common running injury.
New cost-effective material which mimics natural ‘extracellular matrix’ has allowed scientists to capture previously unseen behavior in individual plant cells, including new shapes and interactions. New methods highlight potential developments for plant tissue engineering.
Visual cortex of blind children can be remodeled to process language.
Klinefelter syndrome is the most common disorder of the male sex chromosomes, yet is rarely diagnosed in children. A new assessment tool is being developed by researchers to help pediatricians detect the physical traits of the syndrome. The tool could pave the way for early interventions that prevent and treat a range of physical, psychological, social, and cognitive impairments.
One in four patients treated with the widely used anti-cancer drug cisplatin develop chronic kidney disease. To better understand how the treatment leads to kidney damage, and possibly prevent it, a team of researchers developed a new 3D-imaging technique to peer deep into these vital organs.
Nanoengineers used an innovative 3D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots -- called microfish -- that swim around efficiently in liquids, are chemically powered by hydrogen peroxide and magnetically controlled.
A pediatricians' group is recommending that infants at high risk of peanut allergies be given foods containing peanuts before they turn 1.
Making a mistake can be a rewarding experience – as long as your brain has a chance to learn from it.
Calprotectin fends off microbial invaders by limiting access to iron, an important nutrient.
Cancer researchers dream of the day they can force tumor cells to morph back to the normal cells they once were. Now, researchers have discovered a way to potentially reprogram cancer cells back to normalcy.
A prestigious laboratory in Texas is under federal investigation after auditors issued a preliminary report saying it did not do enough to prevent the suffering of primates who were infected with a deadly virus for a study of the disease.
New software developed by bioengineers could speed up the diagnosis of breast cancer with 90 percent accuracy and without the need for a specialist, according to recent research.
Health researchers say there are now nearly 47 million people living with dementia globally, up from 35 million in 2009. They warned that without a medical breakthrough, numbers will likely double every 20 years.
Old dogs can teach humans new things about evolution. In Nature Communications a new study of North American dog fossils as old as 40 million years suggests that the evolutionary path of whole groups of predators can be a direct consequence of climate change.
Collaborative study identifies universal mechanism that explains how tissue shape regulates physiological processes such as wound healing and embryo development.
A new study reveals that 9- and 10-year-old children who are aerobically fit tend to have significantly thinner gray matter than their “lower-fit” peers. Thinning of the outermost layer of brain cells in the cerebrum is associated with better mathematics performance, researchers report.
