Air pollution linked to childhood anxiety

Published: Tue, 21 May 2019 16:24:21 EDT

A new study looks at the correlation between exposure to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) and childhood anxiety, by looking at the altered neurochemistry in pre-adolescents.

Shedding light on cancer metabolism in real-time with bioluminescence

Published: Mon, 20 May 2019 17:16:28 EDT

Cancerous tumors can be made to bioluminesce, like fireflies, according to the level of their glucose uptake, giving rise to a technique for quantifying metabolite absorption. The firefly imaging technique for sugar can be translated from cancer to many other metabolic diseases.

Scientists succeed in testing potential brain-based method to diagnose autism

Published: Mon, 20 May 2019 12:57:56 EDT

Scientists have taken the first step in developing an objective, brain-based test to diagnose autism.

Thinking outside the box: 'Seeing' clearer and deeper into live organs

Published: Mon, 20 May 2019 11:56:51 EDT

Scientists using a unique approach have developed a new biomedical imaging contrast agent. They say the breakthrough overcomes a major challenge to 'seeing' deeper into live tissue, and opens the way for significant improvements in optical imaging technology.

A new way of diagnosing and treating disease -- without cutting skin

Published: Wed, 15 May 2019 14:40:20 EDT

Researchers have developed a specialized microscope that has the potential ability to both diagnose diseases that include skin cancer and perform incredibly precise surgery -- all without cutting skin.

Memories are strengthened via brainwaves produced during sleep, new study shows

Published: Wed, 15 May 2019 13:17:50 EDT

New research brings us closer to understanding how learned information turns into reliable memories during sleep.

What are the neurological side effects of CAR T-cell therapy?

Published: Wed, 15 May 2019 13:02:54 EDT

A team recently cataloged the neurological symptoms of patients who had received CAR T-cell therapy to better understand its neurotoxic side effects. While neurological symptoms were prevalent -- 77 percent of patients experienced at least one symptom -- they were also temporary.

Artificial intelligence could select heart failure patients for expensive treatment

Published: Mon, 13 May 2019 10:45:05 EDT

Artificial intelligence (AI) has shown promise to select heart failure patients for expensive treatments to prevent lethal arrhythmias, reports a new study. The study is the first to use a machine learning algorithm to predict sudden death in heart failure patients.

Machine learning overtakes humans in predicting early death or heart attack

Published: Mon, 13 May 2019 08:14:12 EDT

Machine learning is overtaking humans in predicting death or heart attack.
