A milestone study published in the journal Nature Communications is offering the first demonstration of a direct causal relationship between the gut microbiome and a human neurovascular disease. Verifying prior animal studies, the research suggests a microbiome metabolite can travel through the bloodstream, reach blood vessels in the brain and expedite the development of lesions.Continue ReadingC
An impressively comprehensive new study from Stanford University has delivered the most thorough investigation into the human body’s molecular response to exercise ever conducted. The research chronicles in detail how a single session of aerobic exercise triggers broad systemic molecular changes, and the findings point to a potential future blood test that could objectively measure a person’s gen
Back in 2018 a team of Australian researchers presented a novel font called Sans Forgetica, with the claim that it helps enhance memory. A team of UK and New Zealand researchers put the font to the test, and in a newly published peer-reviewed article reveal the font, while certainly difficult to read, may not boost memory after all.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Font, Learning, Memory, Un
New research from scientists at Yale University is offering novel insights into how our brains generate acute subjective feelings of stress. The imaging study illustrates exactly which neural network seems to activate sensations of stress, raising the possibility of future therapeutic interventions that could moderate particular brain activity in subjects with mental health disorders.Continue Rea
The progression of Parkinson’s disease is tied to a compromised production of dopamine in the brain, so a great deal of research centers on techniques that can shore up supplies of the key neurotransmitter. Scientists at Harvard University and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University have uncovered a pair of molecules that have shown significant potential in this regard, boosting dopamine pro
Active volcanic craters are something that people generally don't want to get very close to – even if they're dedicated volcanologists. With that in mind, German scientists recently had success using a drone to do the job.Continue ReadingCategory: Drones, TechnologyTags: German Research Center for Geoscience, volcano, DJI Innovations, Quadcopter, Flir
According to the UN Environment Programme, we’ve produced more than eight billion metric tonnes of plastic since the early 1950s, with around 60 percent of that not recycled. It is very difficult for researchers to track the path of this waste when not it is improperly disposed of, but their efforts continue to turn up evidence of its detrimental effects on the natural world. The latest example c
Scientists in the UK have tapped 25 years worth of Census data to track the habits and health outcomes of hundreds of thousands of commuters, finding an association between those who avoid daily car travel and a lower risk of early death. Cycling, walking or catching the train to work was linked to reductions in the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease, with the authors joining a chorus of e
A comprehensive new study, led by scientists from UC San Francisco, is offering robust new insights into the way a ketogenic diet can influence the gut microbiome, and subsequently result in broader health benefits.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Gut Bacteria, Microbiome, Diet, Obesity, Fat cells, metabolism, UCSF
How radiation in space impacts the human body is one of the key questions facing scientists planning for future missions to the Moon and beyond, and NASA now has a powerful new tool to study the phenomenon here on Earth. Called the Galactic Cosmic Ray Simulator, the device has now enabled scientists to observe the effects of a key source of space radiation on animal models, marking an important s is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
