New Research Detects Brain Cell Which Aids In Learning

The workings of memory and learning have yet to be clarified, especially at the neural circuitry level. But researchers at Uppsala University and Brazilian collaborators have discovered a specific brain neuron with a central role in learning. This study, published in Neuron, may have a bearing on the potential for counteracting memory loss in Alzheimer's disease

Risk of ACL Injury and Fatigue is Directly Related, New Study

ACL injuries are one of the most common sports injuries affecting adolescent athletes, leading to lost playing time and high healthcare costs. Research presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting in San Diego shows athletes who experience fatigue — tested on a standardized assessment – demonstrated increased risk of ACL injury. The study is the first to measure the direct impact of fatigue on injury risk in the adolescent population.
