A provocative new study is suggesting a gene variant strongly associated with increased Alzheimer's risk in later life could affect cognitive health in childhood. The research reveals those carrying the gene score slightly lower on IQ tests in childhood, implying cognitive decline is apparent at a younger age than ever previously realized. ..

Action cameras have enabled all kinds of unique point-of-view video capture. Sometimes though, the cameras can get a little too close to the action, as James Williams of Haida Gwaii, an archipelago roughly 40 miles off the Pacific coast of Canada, recently found out.As seen in the above footage shared by CBC, Williams was attempting to capture video footage of a convocation of bald eagles eating
We've already heard how electrical pulses have been shown to help heal wounds, by promoting tissue growth. An experimental new implant uses that same principle to aid in the regeneration of cardiac tissue, potentially postponing or even eliminating the need for heart transplants...
