A new study published in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship examines how the brain is activated when the Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is used to help cancer patients process traumatic memories. The research also adds to the basic understanding of the pathophysiology of traumatic stress in general and the underlying mechanisms involved in resolving it.

According a new study, researchers from Drexel University, they observed that a 19 species of wasps found that body size may lead to variation in the complex parts of their brains. In comparison, the brain size to body size shows that just because you've evolved to have a big brain. This study has published in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.
Authors examined the mindfulness-based cognitive therapy could offer an real new therapy for tinnitus. This single-site randomized controlled trial compared mindfulness-based cognitive treatment to intensive relaxation training (RT) for chronic, distressing tinnitus in adults. Tinnitus is experienced by up to 15% of the population and can lead to significant disability and distress. There is rarely a medical or surgical target and psychological therapies are recommended. This has published in the current issue of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics.
According to this study, Stroke is a known problem of cardiac surgery, but there are few data related to stroke risk in the middle risk period from discharge up to one year of follow-up. Apart from left atrial appendage (LAA) closure and ablation, ischemic stroke readmission rates following cardiac procedures were consistently higher than the highest-risk noncardiac surgery. This study has published in Journal of the American Heart Association.
According to a small retrospective study from France has shown that the patients after immunotherapy treatment for metastatic melanoma. People over age of 65 will show equivalent, and perhaps better, clinical outcome than their younger counterparts. They examined whether the age of patients with metastatic melanoma affected response and tolerance to immunotherapy in a real-world clinical setting. This study has been published in JAMA Dermatology.
Researchers team has tried to know the function of proteins and more specifically with enzymes. The DNA of every organism holds the blueprints for building all the proteins it needs for its metabolic processes. While researchers already know what the blueprints look like for most proteins, they do not understand what many of these proteins do in the body.
Researchers team from the University of Hyderabad in India has enhanced molecular detection at low concentration levels by arranging nanoparticles on nanowires to develop Raman spectroscopy. Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) uses electromagnetic fields to improve Raman scattering and boost sensitivity in standard dyes such as R6G by more than one billionfold. As medicine and pharmacology investigate nanoscale processes, it has become increasingly important to identify and characterize different molecules
The study found that both blacks and whites face the similar risk of evolving diabetes when all biological factors for the disease are considered over time. The finding flips long-held beliefs that there is an unexplained or genetic reason why blacks have double the rate of diabetes linked to whites by midlife, which is considered early onset. This study was published in the journal JAMA.
