Insights About Women's Hormonal Cycles

Women's hormones contain a hidden "intelligence" that women can use to make the best decisions in their lives — decisions that will help them to choose mates, avoid danger, compete with female rivals and produce healthy children, said Haselton, a UCLA professor of psychology and communication studies.

Association Between Classes Of Hearing Loss And Cognitive Impairment

New Study assessed that in contrast to age-related hearing loss, the central hearing loss might share the same mechanism of neurodegeneration with cognitive decline. The study showed that patients with the central hearing loss, or central presbycusis, were twice as likely to have the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) as those with no hearing loss, but there was no association between age-related hearing loss and cognitive impairment.

Structure of Nanoscaffold And Its Interaction With Heart Cells

Researchers have studied the structure of a nanofibrous scaffold, as well as its interaction with rat cardiac cells. The study, which is part of the research into heart tissue regeneration, revealed that cardiomyocytes, the heart muscle cells, envelop nanofibers as they grow, while fibroblasts, which are connective tissue cells, tend to spread out on fibers forming several focal adhesion sites. The study was published in the journal Acta Biomaterialia.

Knee Operation in Older Constitutes Low Value Care

A new Medicare records study by Johns Hopkins researchers has added to mounting evidence that a common surgery designed to remove damaged, worn ends of the thin rubbery cartilage in the knee joint brings little or no benefit to people over the age of 65.

New Study Show Signal Symptoms of A Heart Attack

According to new research, search engine queries related to common heart disease symptoms track closely with geographic and seasonal trends for coronary heart disease hospitalizations. The previous study has used internet search data to gain insights into the spread of infectious disease. This new study is among the first to focus on searches relevant to heart disease, including terms that may signal symptoms of a heart attack.

Food Allergies and Childhood Growth Patterns

Children who experience persistent allergies to cow's milk may remain shorter and lighter throughout pre-adolescence when compared with children who are allergic to peanuts or tree nuts, according to a retrospective chart review to be presented during the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology/World Allergy Organization (AAAAI/WAO) Joint Conference.

Quantity of Bisphenol A That Reaches the Fetus Through The Mother Determined

Various studies have shown that when pregnant women come into contact with bisphenol, it can go pass through the placenta and reach the fetus. Exposure to bisphenol can have negative effects on fertility, the development of the brain, and behavioral changes in adulthood. So far, however, no method has been available for quantifying the amount of the compound that can reach the fetus through the mother.

Determine the Effects of Space Radiation On The CNS

In this study, researchers examined the effects of space radiation on the central nervous system (CNS), ground-based studies in animals have been conducted for more than two decades using charged particle accelerators. Space radiation represents a significant health risk for astronauts. Ground-based animal studies indicate that space radiation affects neuronal functions such as excitability, synaptic transmission, and plasticity, and it may accelerate the onset of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
