They asked subjects whose brains were being scanned using fMRI to view consecutive numbers presented on a...

St. Jude test of bird flu vaccine proves successful

...t an H5N1 "bird flu" virus that mutates so that it adapts to humans and can readily spread from person to person, Webby said. Flu experts and public health officials fear that such an H5N1 variant would trigger a human pandemic (worldwide epidemic). Webby is scheduled to present the findings of this study ...

Viral genetic differences are possible key to HIV dementia
