Michael Alosco, PhD, assistant professor of neurology at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), has received a five-year, $793,000 K23 Award from the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).

Prior studies that when all clinical care team members are empowered to speak-up their performance improves. With the growing importance of patient- and family-centered care, patients and their families are a crucial component of the modern care team, as they can provide unique insight and knowledge into the discussion. More than half of patients and families expressed discomfort about raising patient safety concerns to the healthcare team. The study was published in BMJ Quality and Safety.
A unique brain fingerprint may help identify the most beneficial therapeutic intervention for individual patients with neurologic disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), potentially sparing millions from undergoing ineffective treatment, new research suggests.
Entomologists at the University of California, Riverside have received a five-year grant of $2.44 million from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, or NIAID, to investigate the role hormones play in the female mosquito's ability to use human blood for egg production.
Researchers describe a method based on artificial neural networks that is able to reconstruct entire nerve cells with all their elements and connections almost error-free from image stacks. This milestone in the field of automatic data analysis could bring us much closer to mapping and in the long term also understanding brains in their entirety.
The function of the brain is based on the connections between nerve cells. In order to map these connections and to create the connectome, the "wiring diagram" of a brain, neurobiologists capture images of the brain with the help of three-dimensional electron microscopy.
Despite good glycemic control with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and intensive insulin management throughout pregnancy, women with type 1 diabetes still had babies who were large for gestational age, shows a small retrospective study in US women
Recent Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreaks highlight the need for licensed treatments. ZMapp, an experimental therapy, has shown promise in a clinical trial, but targets only one of five known species of Ebola virus.
A new study showed that Astronauts returned from the Moon, they experienced a number of physiological effects such as sore throats and watering eyes; symptoms that soon earned the title of “lunar hay fever.” With a renewed interest in setting up a lunar base for mining purposes and as a platform for launching interplanetary missions to Mars and beyond, the Moon is back in fashion again.
An international team of researchers, including researchers from Baylor College of Medicine, has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins
One big benefit touted by distributors while selling a health insurance policy is the insurance company’s hospital network, which often runs into thousands of hospitals/outlets. The biggest advantage is that the cashless facility is available only at a network hospital.
A study that examines trabecular structure throughout the distal femur of extant hominoids and test for differences due to locomotor loading regime. In addition to external bone shape and cortical bone thickness and distribution, the distribution and orientation of internal trabecular bone across individuals and species has yielded important functional information on how bone adapts in response to load.
In particular, trabecular bone analysis has played a key role in studies of human and nonhuman primate locomotion and has shown that species with different locomotor repertoires display distinct trabecular architecture in various regions of the skeleton.
In the new research, scientists explain that switching therapy from metformin to a sulfonylurea increases the risk for adverse outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes
