Math that powers spam filters used to understand how brain learns to move our muscles

...rner’s speed and pattern in adapting its movements matched the experimental results of the monkeys almost perfectly. “We found that this Bayesian model can explain almost all of the phenomena we observe in regard to learning motor movements,” says Shadmehr. Beyond possible use in helping stroke patients,...

Research shows cord blood comparable to matched bone marrow

...e. This is the first study that directly compares matched bone marrow, which is currently considered the preferred graft, with matched and mismatched umbilical cord blood. There is considerable controversy in the medical community abou...

The Heart Healthy diet with macadamia nuts had 7 percent saturated fat, 18 percent monounsaturated fat and 5 percent polyunsaturated fat. The standard American diet had 13 percent saturate...

Scientists identify pancreatic cancer stem cells

...sive pancreatic cancer subtype are not identically matched to those found in aggressive breast cancer, the researchers also discovered. The difference is in one marker, CD24, which is negative in breast cancer and positive in pancreatic cancer, according to Simeone. "These studies suggest that several st...

Hybrid molecule causes cancer cells to self-destruct

...rticle. "But we found that when the right sugar is matched with the right chemical partner, it can deliver a powerful double-whammy against cancer cells." Sampathkumar and his colleagues built upon 20-year-old findings that a short-chain fatty acid called butyrate can slow the spread of cancer cells. In ...

Study shows hope for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's

...rate was 82 to 85 percent using the EEGs (e.g., it matched evaluations conducted at Penn 82 to 85 percent of the time). Alzheimer’s disease cannot be confirmed until a patient has died and his or her brain has been examined. Gold standard tests administered at world-class research facilities, such as Penn, h...

Surgeons develop simpler way to cure atrial fibrillation

...x-maze IV is unique because the surgeons carefully matched the age, sex and cardiac conditions of a group of patients who underwent Cox-maze III in the past with patients undergoing Cox-maze IV. "This is the first documentation of the effectiveness of the ablation devices compared to the incisions of the Cox...

Global 'sunscreen' has likely thinned, report NASA scientists

... decreased. The dimming in the simulations closely matched actual measurements of sunlight declines recorded from the 1960s to 1990. Further simulations using one of the Goddard climate models revealed that aerosols blocking sunlight or trapping some of the sun's heat high in the atmosphere were the major...

Triplex assay used to assay duplex genomic DNA

...develop a flow injection based instrument which is matched to our chemistry," continued Daksis. Their Genome Flow® instrument, which employs hardware from FIALab Instruments of Bellevue, Washington, has one moving part, the syringe pump. It allows samples to be automatically quantitated, a necessary step in ...

With these funds, Rochelle, holder of the Carol and Henry Groppe Professorship in Chemical Engineering, will optimize...

In presence of fragrant cleaning products, air purifiers that emit ozone can dirty the air

...also developed a mathematical model that precisely matched their experimental observations. This model can be used to predict whether a given air purifier will make the air dirtier in a given indoor environment. Scientific data on indoor air purifiers will be important as officials begin the process of re...

Genes and genius: Researchers confirm association between gene and intelligence

...ls, took the Wechsler test, and those results were matched to differences in individuals' DNA. By comparing individual differences embedded in DNA, the team zeroed in on CHRM2, the neuronal receptor gene on chromosome 7. The CHRM2 gene activates a multitude of signaling pathways in the brain involved in ...

Early-stage immune system control of HIV may depend on inherited factors

... individual, these are the factors that need to be matched as closely as possible in organ transplants, with perfect matches only possible between identical twins. Some studies have found that HIV patients with particular versions of HLA may be better able to control viral levels, but the diversity of HLA m...
