This involves recording a person’s weight digitally, then running on a treadmill for an hour and recording their ending weight after toweling off the body sweat. “Most people don’t know how much they really sweat while exercising, but this simple test can tell you...

UCF nanoparticle offers promise for treating glaucoma

...a central role in causing glaucoma. The disease involves abnormally high pressure of the fluid inside the eye, which, if left untreated, can result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss. High pressure occurs, in part, because of a buildup of carbon dioxide inside the eye, and the compound blocks th...

While the findings of the international research collaboration hopefully will fuel the development of more effective ways of preventing and treating breas...

Mice with a migraine show signs of brain damage

...an aura. CSD is an electrical event that initially involves a burst of intense activity among the neurons on the surface of the brain, followed by a gradually spreading wave of suppressed brain cell activity.

US control strategies may make flu epidemics worse, UCLA study shows

...ologist, is the human factor. The human factor involves two biological characteristics, "memory and how adaptable people can be," Blower said. "These characteristics drive human behavior." Blower and her group used people's attitudes toward the seasonal flu to construct their model. With seasonal flu, ...

New Brandeis research sheds light on memory by erasing it

... importance may be conditions like epilepsy, which involves synapses that have become overly strengthened. The new research shows how synapses can be weakened by attacking memory molecules. Lisman's lab plans further research to better understand what happens to the CaMKII after it is attacked. By using f...

From the deep -- Researchers find new species of sea anemone

...cting deep-sea creatures is a tedious process that involves a lot of high-tech equipment like underwater video cameras attached to remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Deep sea ROVs are also equipped with robotic arms and suction devices that are used to collect species. "It's like a submarine that's manned ...

Latent memory of cells comes to life

The solutions have to be capable, moreover, of remedying particularly serious damage, such as those due to congenital deficiencies, degene...

Study examines genetic risk factors for Alzheimer's disease

...This is one of the largest studies of its kind and involves many Welsh families " said Professor Julie Williams. “It is by virtue of the support given to us by Alzheimer's sufferers and their carers that we are able to understand factors involved in the disease process. Many genes will be linked with Alzheim...
