Runners -- Let thirst be your guide

...mia (EAH), could be prevented if only people would respect their personal thirst “meter,” or would undertake a “sweat test” to determine how much water they actually need to drink in order to replace just the body fluids lost during exercising, the researchers say. A group of experts in this condition has...

3-D ultrasound scanner provides in-depth view of the brain

... shift the orientation of the ultrasound beam with respect to the probe, he said. Rather than capturing a side view, the brain probe "looks" straight ahead by emitting ultrasound waves like water from a hose. That way, it can produce an image of the brain with just the tip inserted through the skull. The ...

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

...lfish individuals reach a collective behavior with respect to a common dilemma by adapting to what they think are other people's decisions. The group modeled each individual's strategy for making yearly vaccination decisions as an adaptive process of trial and error. They tracked both individual-level decisi...

Scientists: As rainfall changes, tropical plants may acclimate

But in the still wetter terrain that characterizes some rainforests, they switch to another form of nitrogen that becomes more available in th...

Implanting dopamine generators in brain cells obtains improvement in Parkinson's in monkeys

...nd in humans. The advantage of this cell type with respect to others is the possibility of carrying out autoimplants, thus avoiding tissue rejection or immunosupressor treatment. Research Research was undertaken with monkeys who had Parkinson's induced by the administration of a neurotoxin (MPTP) and...

The discovery of the insula's role in addiction opens new directions for therapies, Bechara said, including possible drugs targeted to a region that "no one paid attention to." "There is a lot of...

Cholera pathogen reveals how bacteria generate energy to live

... how the structure of the enzyme is organized with respect to the two sides of the membrane. The problem is that the enzyme is not amenable to standard methods of determining structure. Since an ion pump needs to carry ions from one side of the bacterial membrane to the other, the enzyme has to reach all the...

Who gives stem cells their marching orders?

...d to let individual cells know where they are with respect to their neighbors. However, to carry out these tasks, the Nodal protein must be cleaved by specific enzymes. The enzymes act as a sort of regulatory switch, increasing the stem cells' production of Nodal and preventing them from differentiating too ...

Development of gene therapy

Sanderson's system argues that once demographic sustainability has been achieved, conservation efforts should aim next for 'ecological functionality,' which means a species will serve its role in ecosystems, such as...

Melatonin improves mood in winter depression

Corals switch skeleton material as seawater changes

...'s experiments do, however, have significance with respect to global warming and ocean acidification, Ries said, because they reveal that although corals can adapt mineralogically to altered seawater chemistry, doing so slowed the corals' rate of growth by nearly 65 percent. "This provides us with further e...
