Mice with a migraine show signs of brain damage

...xygen. The problem begins as the brain tries to recover from CSD, which throws the proportion of crucial ions like potassium and sodium out of balance, taking away the brain’s ability to function efficiently. This change in the proportion of chemicals gradually sweeps across the brain like a slowly spread...

Amphibians in losing race with environmental change

...ion may, in time, allow amphibians to react to and recover from the new environmental insults, Blaustein said, if they don't go extinct first. But evolution is an erratic, often slow and imperfect system, and the complexities of amphibian life cycles makes them more immediately vulnerable than many other ...

...vibration) of tissue, as well as how the voice can recover from physical stress (5aSC12). DETECTING BREAST LESIONS WITH VIBRO-ACOUSTOGRAPHY Vibro-acoustography (VA) is a non-invasive imaging technique using ultrasound to search for lesions in breast tissue. Generally the rival approaches to breast i...

Proteasome activator enhances survival of Huntington's disease neuronal model cells

...sion of proteasome activator PA28 can specifically recover proteasome function and improve cell viability in both HD model and patient cells. These remarkable results demonstrate for the first time that it is possible to intervene therapeutically in the proteolytic pathways and organelles that participat...

Row over study puts Korea's scientific community under scrutiny again

Dr Kim claims a paper about premature ovarian failure that he originally published in the Korean Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in January 200...

Female Antarctic seals give cold shoulder to local males

...y of fur seal populations and may have helped them recover so successfully from near extinction only 100 years ago. This could in turn affect how well they respond to future challenges such as climate change." Antarctic fur seals were nearly hunted to extinction in the 17th and 18th Centuries by commercia...

Cold sore virus might play role in Alzheimer's disease

...le with the ApoE-4 gene, brain cells don't seem to recover as well from injury, and the cells don't form new connections as well as cells equipped with either ApoE-2 or ApoE-3. Other scientists have shown that the gene plays a role in clearing toxic amyloid beta from the brain. "Just how ApoE-4 makes peop...

Saving endangered whales at no cost

...s, the North Atlantic right whale has been slow to recover from past exploitation, and extinction remains a threat. The whale is virtually extinct in Europe, but a small population of about 350 individuals remains on the east coast of North America. A leading threat to the species is lethal entanglement by f...

Long-lived deep-sea fishes imperiled by technology, overfishing

...atened by over-fishing and the species' ability to recover is constrained by the fishes' long lifespans and low reproductive success, a panel of experts said today at the annual meeting of the American Association of the Advancement of Science. Some of the fish species living at depths greater than 500 mete...

When researchers examined the brains one month after transplant ?a long time in the two-year life of a rat - researchers found endogenous dopaminergic cel...

Diabetes slows nerve recovery after heart transplant

Seals protect brain, conserve oxygen by turning off shivering response on icy dives

...hat they use nearly all their oxygen, but they can recover with these special adaptations. Humans cannot tolerate oxygen levels nearly so low as a seal can. "Somehow they tolerate hypoxia better, we don't know why," Folkow said. The study of how seals handle this lack of oxygen may someday give us knowled...

The biggest bug in gut discomfort

A rare but serious complication of C. jejuni infection is the triggering of the autoimmune disorder, Guillain-Barré paralysis. Yale researchers now h...

Brains can recover from alcoholic damage but patients should stop drinking as soon as possible

...wth. Our findings show the ways that the brain can recover from the toxic insults of chronic alcoholism and substantiate the early measurable benefits of therapeutic sobriety. However, they also suggest that prolonged dependence on alcohol may limit rapid recovery from white matter brain injury. "Modern n...

Coral reefs are increasingly vulnerable to angry oceans

...end to grow and mature quickly, so the species can recover before the next big storm arrives." However, one effect of the increased production of greenhouse gases is an increase in the acidity of the ocean. This is likely to reduce the stability of coral reefs, and amplify the damage done by tropical s...
