New generation of cardiac interventions, therapies optimize heart disease care

...f the heart. A catheter-mounted electromechanical mapping system was used to identify ischemic regions of the heart and guide the injections. After six months, patients who were treated with bone marrow cells were able to exercise, on average, more than one minute longer on a treadmill and showed a four per...

Should heart attack care be more like trauma care? Study suggests regional system could be feasible

...d road routes derived from commercial geographical mapping software. The researchers added in time for the dispatching of an ambulance and the assessment and loading of a patient at the scene by the emergency medical personnel. In all, 1,176 hospitals provided angioplasty, about 25 percent of all acute-care...

Classic illusion sheds new light on the neural site of tactile perception

...firmed this correspondence by separate somatotopic mapping of the skin sites' representation in each participant's brain when each site was stimulated (with no illusion produced). Altogether, these results suggest that the illusion of being touched at a particular place on the body engages exactly the same ...

Great (taste) expectations: Study shows brain anticipates taste, shifts gears

...ctly related to those perceptions. Importantly, by mapping how the brain anticipates an event and kicks in a placebo effect, Nitschke argues, scientists can begin to think about ways that knowledge could be used in clinical settings. For Nitschke, who also practices as a clinical psychologist specializing in...
