El Ni?o cycles linked to cholera outbreaks

...8. The Ellner model took into consideration recent frequencies of cholera cases, an ENSO index based on sea-surface temperatures in the Pacific and seasonal variation in local climates. Peaks in cholera incidence at the Bangladesh hospital were found to occur every 3.7 years -- exactly the same frequency as of E...

T-waves to sweep over imaging technology

...gion of the electromagnetic spectrum -- defined by frequencies from 0.1 to 10 THz, just between infrared light and microwave radiation. The waves have already invited research in a multitude of diverse sectors such as the semiconductor materials, medicine, manufacturing, space, and defense industries. T-ray app...

Have You Ever Wondered Why Male And Female Voices Differ?

... voices. This causes a more complex range of sound frequencies than in a male voice. When a man hears a female voice the auditory section of his brain is activated, which analyses the different sounds in order to `read′ the voice and determine the auditory face. When men hear a male voice the part of the brain...

In 2003 the researchers distributed a 64-item anonymous survey to 1,143 third-year students at 8 U.S. medical schools, exploring their exposure and response to drug company interactions. In 2005, the researchers conducted a national su...

Flu-Drugs Are Causing Resistance Across The World

New Test Offers Hope in Effective Hearing Aid Design for Babies

...sed on eliciting responses from brain to different frequencies played against a baseline noise while the individual is asleep. The accuracy of this test would be first tested on adults before it can be used in babies. Hair cells present in the cochlea (a part of the ear) has the remarkable ability to respond t...

"Our work aids in this effort by providing a direct tool to examine alleles from different populations." In the research, Zhang and coworkers from U-M, Mic...

Soldiers Exposed To Gunshot Noise Need Better Hearing Protection

...aring protectors that will muffle the most harmful frequencies while still enabling soldiers to communicate with each other. The study’s authors recommend the use of noise-reducing earmuffs for that purpose. The study’s purpose was to determine what effect prolonged exposure to gunfire could have on soldiers. ...

Researchers Make Progress in Studying Genetic Traits of India-born Populations
