Strong Social Network Could Preserve Memory

According to a new study, researchers found that mice housed in groups had better memories and healthier brains than animals that lived in pairs. A strong social network could be the key to preserving memory. Our research suggests that merely having a larger social network can positively influence the aging brain. The study was published in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience.

Suicide Rate In Medicine Is More Than Twice That Of The General Population

According to the researchers, the suicide rate in medicine is more than twice that of the general population, resulting in at least one physician suicide per day in the U.S. In fact, the actual number is probably higher, as the stigma of suicide results in underreporting.

Evaluation Of Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Myocardial Infarction

Researchers investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying myocardial regenerative ability. Advantages within the field could be of benefit. The heart of a neonatal mouse is capable of self-repair after tissue damage. However, this ability disappears during the first week of life. For the development of novel treatments for patients to regain heart function after myocardial infarction.
