The researchers unraveled that the dyslexic drivers had on an average taken, 0.13 seconds longer to react during the rural drive and 0.19 seconds longer to react during the urban drive when compared to the other drivers. The...

Researchers Identify Key Gene That May Help Brain Treatment

...Singapore (NUS) study has unveiled a new gene that speeds up the growth of the body's protective fatty nerve coverings. Named juxtanodin, the gene speeds up the growth of myelin, the fatty sheath that protects nerves in the brain and spinal cord. "This...

New Tools To Identify Flu Strains

...to be a natural constraint on long-term memory. It speeds up the rate at which electrical signals in the brain die away, so that the messages they carry are not stored for long periods. When its action is blocked, electrical signals fade more slowly, and information is retained for long periods.These mice ...

Women need to be on guard, because this process gains momentum after estrogen levels drop around the time of menopause. Estrogen actually helps in arresting the pace of bone loss. This paves the wa...

Gene Variants Linked to Early Heart Attack Discovered
