Mapping mountains from space with GOCE

...heights. Geodesy is concerned with measuring and mapping the shape of the Earth's surface, to the benefit of all branches of Earth sciences and has many practical applications. Although surveying techniques go back thousands of years, it traditionally involves taking very precise three-dimensional position...

WFU to host international conference of physicists

... scans to diagnose medical treatment, more precise mapping of potential oil and natural gas deposits and improved security at airports and seaports. At the conference, there will be 59 oral presentations in plenary sessions, including 12 keynote speeches by invited speakers, from academia, private industry...

UC Irvine researchers reveal first images of brain changes associated with memory

...that were changed by LTP. The way is now open to mapping where in the brain memories are laid down, said Lynch, a professor of psychiatry and human behavior. Seeing memory-related physical changes to synapses means that we can at last use mouse models to test if the effects of retardation, aging and variou...

SCAI's 'Therapies in Evolution' showcases exciting future of interventional cardiology

... performed using a 3-dimensional electromechanical mapping system and a catheter-mounted needle to inject into the heart millions of stem cells that have been taken from the patient's leg muscle and cultured in the laboratory. Recent studies have shown that stem cell therapy not only markedly improves sympto...

Faster and better emergency response through satellite telecoms

...ses such as SARS and avian flu. By identifying and mapping occurrences of these problems sooner, agencies can relieve suffering more quickly and contain a situation more efficiently. That is why ESA is supporting the Health Early Warning System (HEWS), which will improve the performance of emergency service ...

JRRD releases single-topic issue focused on vision rehabilitation

...text, pg. 749 We developed and tested a method of mapping the retinal location of text scanning during reading. Text location is plotted cumulatively on scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) retinal images. Retinal locations that contain text most often are brightest in the cumulative plot, and locations that...

New research sheds light on stroke development

... weighted imaging (DWI), a process of scanning and mapping the brain, in establishing the relationship between abnormalities in the cardiovascular system and stroke. This research is helping to determine how a stroke develops. The study is published in current issue of Journal of Neuroimaging. DWI is being...

Dragon training in China focuses on atmosphere

Each RA patient was interviewed to collect relevant personal details, including age at onset of RA symptoms, age at RA diagnosis, medication history, and smoking history. Each patient was examined for joint tenderness, completed a Health A...

Microscopic brain damage detected in early Alzheimer's disease

... patients and healthy controls. The computerized mapping technique allowed researchers to evaluate ADC values in large regions of the brain. In patients with MCI, researchers identified regions of brain atrophy and increased water content in white-matter areas. Additionally, high ADC values were found in t...

Predicting an answer to the threat of flooding

...ent developments in data collection using airborne mapping systems, such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), have significantly reduced the cost of collecting information of this kind. This unprecedented combination of cutting-edge computer modeling capability and up-to-date information on land use of...

Large-scale cross-platform study of research microarrays uncovers high concordance across platforms

... by many factors--one issue was the annotation and mapping of the genes across platforms. So Kuo, based on prior experience, decided to obtain probe sequences from every platform as negotiated prior to the induction of a platform to the study, and for a few of the platforms, this information remains propriet...

A neural mosaic of tones

...tain areas of the brain, and like the retina, this mapping is point-for-point. Thus, in interpreting our environment it is important for the brain to separate sound into its constituent frequencies. That means that particular sound frequencies best activate certain groups of neurons in the auditory cortex. S...

Targeted lymph node examination improves staging of colon cancer

...r lymph nodes. The results "suggest that lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymph node techniques are feasible and accurate in colon cancer," the authors write. "The improved risk stratification afforded by standardization of both surgical and pathological techniques may improve the selection of patients for ch...

News Tips from The Journal of Neuroscience

...flalo and Michael S. A. Graziano The topographical mapping of motor cortex in monkey is complex, probably because it must conform to different elements such as the somatotopic body map, a map of the hand in space, and regional partitioning based on complex behaviors that involve multiple body parts, for exam...

Extending the reach of disaster relief from fire to flood

...of personnel enhanced safety and the reporting and mapping improved the situational awareness of command staff. REMSAT not only improved on previous methods, but added the ability to geo-reference incidents, so that command staff and field crews could pinpoint exact locations. Video-streaming also proved va...

Researchers map links between size of hippocampus and progression to Alzheimer's dementia

...ognitive stability or improvement. Using novel 3-D mapping techniques to analyze MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) data from 20 patients with mild cognitive impairment, they found that the patients with the smaller hippocampus did, in fact, face an increased risk of developing dementia. IMPACT: The technique ...
