A new study has shown that people who regularly eat oranges are less likely to develop macular degeneration (MD) than people who do not eat oranges
A team of bioengineers at UC San Diego has answered a question that has long puzzled neuroscientists, and may hold a key to better understanding the complexities of neurological disorders: Why are axons, the spindly arms extending from neurons that transmit information from neuron to neuron in the brain, designed the way they are?
Trauma is the sixth leading cause of death worldwide, and recent studies suggest that 16% of renal (kidney) trauma occurs from a penetrating injury, such as a gunshot wound, stabbing or piercing injury from a car accident
