Brain blood flow gives clues to treating depression

...ded. Additional research could examine whether its possible to use functional imaging techniques to determine which patients would benefit from drug treatment and which would respond better to electroconvulsive therapy, explained Bonne. Future research should also examine the differences in brain blood flow i...

Inflammation may cause preterm labor and fetal deaths

...ncentrated their study on these two receptors as a possible link in producing the inflammatory response that is believed to have brought about the fetal death in mice. In a prior mouse study at Case Western Reserve, the investigators noted that inflammation closely paralleled localization of bacteria. In...

Link between sunspots, rain helps predict disease in east Africa

...extraordinarily wet rainy seasons, heavy rains are possible at other times as well, Stager acknowledged. But most of the rainiest times, he said, are consistently coupled with the predictable rhythms of sunspot peaks. "When you think of climate troubles in Africa, it's usually about drought," Stager said. "...

Cornell scientists link E. coli bacteria to Crohn's disease

...remained elusive. Researchers at Cornell examined possible causes for the disease in patients with Crohns restricted to the ileum and the colon versus healthy individuals. Given that only about 20 percent of fecal bacteria can be cultured, our group adopted a broad culture-independent approach to target spe...

...ng at the brain in a more direct way than has been possible by high tech brain scanners such as MRI and CAT." Now, Dr Cordeiro believes that this knowledge may mean that the eye could also be used to test potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease. "Since we have shown that drugs for Alzheimer's diseas...

Anthrax bacterium's deadly secrets probed

Before, it was only possible to use mouse or other animal cells to model neurodegenerative diseases, but the genetic background is so different from that of humans that key aspects of diseases such as Alzheimers could not be reproduced. Both Sun and Sdhof said that their finding...

In a first, Einstein scientists discover the dynamics of transcription in living mammalian cells

...k a lengthy 517 seconds (about eight minutes). The possible reason: The lead polymerase on the growing polymerase II enzyme sometimes paused for long periods, retarding transcription in the same way that a Sunday driver on a narrow road slows down all traffic behind him. But in the absence of pausing, elongat...

"Either the vomeronasal organ may be needed to grow a female-specific neural circuit during development, or the mature female mouse brain may require vomeronasal activity to repress male behavior."
