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
