A recent analysis of long-term after-effects of a specific hormone replacement therapy (HRT)—...
Air pollution can shrink brains, lead to cognitive problems and even cause silent stokes, according to new research published by Stroke a journal of the American Heart Association.
Human emotion can be transferred by technology that stimulates different parts of the hand without making physical contact with your body, a study has shown.
The brains of babies 'light up' in a very similar way to adults when exposed to the same painful stimulus, a brain scanning study has discovered. It suggests that babies experience pain much like adults.
“Listen to your heart,” sang Swedish pop group Roxette in the late Eighties. But not everyone is able to tune into their heartbeat, according to an international team of researchers – and half of us under- or over-estimate our ability.
Findings reveal severe diabetes worsens Parkinson's symptoms.
A new study has found dramatic improvements in the care of patients with cirrhosis and liver failure and recommends improved treatment strategies for patients with cirrhosis and concurrent bacterial infections.
Routine genetic screening of children with CKD could lead to earlier, more precise diagnoses.
Human embryos make viral proteins within days of fertilization.
There will be 60,000 annual cases of chronic subdural hematoma (SDH) by 2030, making SDH the U.S.’s most common adult brain surgery disorder, says a new study by New York University (NYU) researchers.
Bones found in an Italian cave over two decades ago might have provided the oldest Neanderthal DNA ever tested.
In middle-schoolers, neuroscientists find differences in brain structures where knowledge is stored.
The team of investigators will present their findings this week at the annual American Academy of Neurology meeting.
Using a weak electric current to alter a specific brain activity pattern, UNC School of Medicine researchers increased creativity in healthy adults. Now they’re testing the same experimental protocol to alleviate symptoms in people with depression.
Tags on DNA from fathers’ sperm linked to children’s autism symptoms.
A wearable device that emits low-level electrical fields can slow the progression of glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer, and extend patients’ lifespans.
Apple, Johnson & Johnson, and Medtronic will be partners on this program.
This company is offering a peculiar treatment.
Electrical recordings directly from the human brain show remarkable precision in the coordination of widely distributed regions involved in memory recall, at rest and during sleep.
French biopharmaceutical company DBV Technologies moves closer to bringing its peanut allergy patch to market, receiving Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as it prepares to launch its Phase 3 trial.
New research shows that males with higher ‘reproductive potential’ are better distance runners. This may have been used by females as a reliable signal of high male genetic quality during our hunter-gatherer past, as good runners are more likely to have other traits of good hunters and providers, such as intelligence and generosity.
When children are unmotivated at school, new research suggests their genes may be part of the equation.
Investors did not seem pleased by these results.
The Asia-Pacific non-vascular stents market, consisting of urinary tract, pancreatic and biliary, enteral, and airway stents, will expand in value from $148.1 million in 2013 to $223.8 million by 2021.
Genetic studies in humans, zebrafish and mice have revealed how two different types of genetic variations team up to cause a rare condition called Hirschsprung’s disease.
A test that detects fetal DNA in the mother’s bloodstream is more accurate than conventional screening at identifying Down syndrome (aka trisomy 21), finds a new study led by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center and UCSF.
