Mirrors in the mind: New studies elucidate how the brain reflects onto itself the actions of others

...ments made by the experimenter's hand were able to facilitate the subject's own finger movements--this facilitation was measured by the ability of benign stimulation of a particular brain region to promote motor signals (corresponding to those finger movements) in the subject's own hand. The researchers found...

Cigarette smoking impedes tendon-to-bone healing

...njury and a repair, new cells come in and start to facilitate healing," Galatz says. "When the new cells arrive, they make proteins such as collagen to form the junction between tendon and bone. And in the rats exposed to nicotine, we saw lower cellular proliferation." The rats also made less type-I collagen...

Highly concentrated botulinum preparation for cosmetic injections can result in severe illness

...eported immediately to local health authorities to facilitate rapid epidemiological investigation, provision of antitoxin when indicated, and prevention of further cases," the researchers write. "Physicians and patients must be aware of the hazards associated with illegitimate use of unlicensed botulinum tox...

New biochip helps study living cells, may speed drug development

...ly important in muscle and nerve cells, where they facilitate communication and the transfer of electrical signals from one cell to the next. Within the 10-by-10 millimeter chip -- roughly the size of a dime -- cells are sealed inside 16 pyramidal pores, analyzed, and then can be removed intact. Since the t...

"This parsimonious explanation," he said, "accounts for cultural differences in beauty ?and historical differences in beauty as well ?because beauty basically depends on what you've been ex...

Immune cell communication key to hunting viruses, Jefferson immunologists show

...f-peptide MHCs derived from normal proteins, could facilitate recognition, but it was not clear until now how this happened." Dr. Sykulev notes that this finding is not only relevant to viral infected cells, but to tumor cells as well. Both usually express very low levels of proteins that killer cells recognize...

Rhesus monkeys in Nepal may provide new alternative for HIV/AIDS research

...ins that separates Nepal and India from China. To facilitate the use of rhesus macaques in research while ensuring the conservation of Nepal's naturally occurring rhesus populations, the Nepali government enacted a policy in 2003 stipulating that only captive-bred animals may be used for scientific research. ...

Gene transfer using mutant form of good cholesterol cuts vascular plaque and inflammation

... which HDL and apo A-I work to reduce plaque: They facilitate the removal of cholesterol from the macrophages in the plaque and deliver it to the liver for elimination," Shah said. "We used three methods in our experiment and all three methods demonstrated that macrophages containing the apo A-I Milano gene wer...
