Fundamental physicists discover surprise new use for super-chilled neutrons to measure the movement of viruses

First evidence that ultra-cold neutrons interact with moving nano-sized particles provides a new tool for chemists, biologists and engineers.    Billiard-ball collisions may also explain inaccuracies in 60-year-old experiments to measure the lifetime of the neutron and explain the origin of matter in the universe. Continue reading

Whale earwax used to determine contaminant exposure in whales

A novel technique has been developed for reconstructing contaminant and hormone profiles using whale earplugs to determine, for the first time, lifetime chemical exposures and hormone profiles, from birth to death, for an individual whale. This informa… Continue reading

Earth expected to be habitable for another 1.75 billion years

Habitable conditions on Earth will be possible for at least another 1.75 billion years – according to astrobiologists. “If we ever needed to move to another planet, Mars is probably our best bet. It’s very close and will remain in the habitable zone until the end of the Sun’s lifetime — six billion years from now,” one of the researchers said. Continue reading

Modeling and managing schizophrenia

Studies have shown that obstetrical complications during a child’s birth play significant roles in the development of schizophrenia in that person’s lifetime, especially in males. As such, schizophrenia needs careful management practice from birth onwa… Continue reading

Development of a therapeutic algorithm for optimal nosebleed management

Approximately 60 percent of people experience epistaxis, commonly known as nosebleed, at least once in their lifetime. Of those who experience nosebleed, six percent require medical treatment. A new study explores which nosebleed treatment options demo… Continue reading

Mother’s genes can impact aging process

Researchers have shown that aging is determined not only by the accumulation of changes during our lifetime, but also by the genes we acquire from our mothers. Continue reading

New tools to organize information-overload threatening neuroscience

Before the digital age, neuroscientists got their information in the library like the rest of us. But the field’s explosion has created nearly 2 million papers — more data than any researcher can read and absorb in a lifetime. Continue reading

Chronic harvesting threatens tropical tree

Chronic harvesting of a tropical tree that many local communities in Western Africa depend on can alter the tree’s reproduction and drastically curtail fruit and seed yields over the tree’s lifetime, according to a new study. Continue reading

PTSD after traumatic events: Which teens are at risk?

Researchers have identified risk factors for children exposed to trauma in developing PTSD from analyzing 6,483 teen–parent pairs from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication, a survey of the prevalence and correlates of mental disorders in the United States. 61 percent of the teens (ages 13 to 17) had been exposed to at least one potentially traumatic event in their lifetime. Nineteen percent had experienced three or more such events. Continue reading

An evolutionary compromise for long tooth preservation

Researchers have conducted stress analyses on gorilla teeth of differing wear stages. Their findings show that different features of the occlusal surface antagonize tensile stresses in the tooth to tooth contact during the chewing process. They further show that tooth wear, with its loss of dental tissue and reduction of occlusal relief decreases tensile stresses in the tooth. The result, however, is that food processing becomes less effective. Thus, when the condition of the occlusal surface changes during an individual’s lifetime due to tooth wear, the biomechanical requirements on the existing dental material change as well — an evolutionary compromise for longer tooth preservation. Continue reading

Higher genetic risk tied to lifetime asthma suffering

Children with more genetic risks for asthma are not only more likely to develop the condition at a young age, but they are also more likely to continue to suffer with asthma into adulthood. The finding is one of the latest to come from a 40-year longit… Continue reading

One in five students in Grades 7-12 say they have had a traumatic brain injury in their lifetime

One in five adolescents surveyed in Ontario said they have suffered a traumatic brain injury that left them unconscious for five minutes or required them to be hospitalized overnight, a statistic researchers say is much higher than previously thought. Continue reading

Solitary mutation destroys key ‘window’ of brain development

Scientists have shown in animal models that brain damage caused by the loss of a single copy of a gene during very early childhood development can cause a lifetime of behavioral and intellectual problems. Continue reading

Repeat brain injury raises soldiers’ suicide risk

Suicide risk is higher among military personnel with more lifetime TBIs, even after controlling for clinical symptom severity. Results of the study show that multiple TBIs, which are common among military personnel, may contribute to increased risk for… Continue reading

Consequences of a lifetime of sexual competition revealed

Males that spend all their time reacting to their rivals die earlier and are less able to mate later in life according to new research. It reveals how fruit flies that are subjected to continual competition from mating rivals, mate for longer and produce more offspring in early life. But they pay a high price – a shorter lifespan and reduced mating ability later in life. Continue reading

Reactivating memories during sleep: Memory rehearsal during sleep can make a big difference in remembering later

Why do some memories last a lifetime while others disappear quickly? A new study suggests that memories rehearsed, during sleep or waking, can have an impact on memory consolidation and on what is remembered later. A new study shows that when the infor… Continue reading
