Delay in cutting the cord helps premature babies

... infants (those born at 24 to 37 weeks) often have trouble breathing, so physicians prefer moving them immediately to intensive care units where they are helped to breathe.

Findings show how toxic proteins rob Alzheimer's patients of memory

...ext step is to understand why ADDLed synapses have trouble staying connected and storing memories." ADDLS are small, soluble aggregated proteins. The clinical data strongly support a recent theory in which ADDLs accumulate at the beginning of Alzheimer's disease and block memory function by a process ...

Stanford biologist working to restore native forests to Hawaii

Scientists today can investigate the nature and properties of a single protein in isolation, but the key to understanding human function, both normal and abnormal, lies in the complex interactions that occur among proteins in response to...

Mice brains shrink during winter, impairing some learning and memory

The bottom line: secrecy is the best defense for networks under attack, and good intelligence is vital for taking networks down. The researchers note that their analysis is also applica...

New research provides evidence that Rh proteins act as CO2 gas channels

But among gases, carbon dioxide (CO2) and ammonia (NH3) are exceptional, the researchers explained. They both dissolve readily in water, which can sl...

Pediatricians lack confidence in managing obesity, and their own weight might be an important factor

.... "Those who think themselves too heavy might have trouble counseling about weight for more obvious 'pot-calling-the-kettle-black' reasons.
