Effect of "High-Dose" SWL (8000 Shocks at 24kV) to One Renal Pole on Bilateral Hemodynamics and Tubular Function

Researchers find enzyme crucial to preservation of memories
...CaMKIV-deficient mice could learn to associate the shocks
to the chamber context, but they had difficulties in converting such memories to long lasting memories, said Tonegawa. Our conclusion from these tests was that the CaMKIV pathway was primarily involved in memory consolidation and retention, he said. ...
Little-studied waves in the heart may be cause of defibrillation failure
...one of the reasons that low-voltage defibrillation shocks
fail to halt fibrillation in cardiac patients. The findings by Vanderbilt University researchers John Wikswo, Veniamin Sidorov, Rubin Aliev, Marcella Woods, Franz Baudenbacher and Petra Baudenbacher were published in the Nov. 14 issue of Physical R...
Non-lethal methods can resolve conflicts between bears and humans
