Researchers from Edith Cowan University and the Université Clermont Auvergne in France have investigated how young children seem to be able to run around all day without getting tired. The study, published in Frontiers in Physiology, suggests it's because their muscles resist fatigue and recover very quickly in a similar way to those of elite endurance athletes.

A UCLA-led team of scientists reports that six people with severe spinal cord injuries—three of them completely paralyzed—have regained use of their hands and fingers for the first time in years after undergoing a nonsurgical, noninvasive spinal stimulation procedure the researchers developed
Marine polyphenol phlorotannins promote sleep through the benzodiazepine site of the gamma-aminobutyric acid type A (GABAA) receptors. In this study, the sleep-promoting effects of triphlorethol A were investigated.
Researchers realized that humans evolved from a succession of primate ancestors, the public imagination has been focused on the inflexion point when those ancestors switched from ape-like shuffling to walking upright as we do today. Scientists have long been focused because our ancestors lived, hunted and evolved. A close examination of 3.6-million-year-old hominin footprints discovered in Laetoli, Tanzania, suggests our ancestors evolved the hallmark trait of extended leg, human-like bipedalism substantially earlier than previously thought.
Schizophrenia and autism share common traits, according to the Swinburne researchers reported in the journal Psychiatry Research. They also discovered that people in the general population can be categorized into 8 subgroups depending on their autistic or schizophrenic traits.
The present study evaluated the prognostic meaning of bone marrow 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake pattern in positron emission tomography /computed tomography (PET/CT) of newly diagnosed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients
Scientists at New Curtin University studied almost 10,000 men who had undergone vasectomy reversals across the globe has found no evidence of a link between the procedure and prostate cancer
A study investigated the new microscope that captures the detailed 3-D movies of cells deep within living systems. Merging lattice light sheet microscopy with adaptive optics reveals the most detailed picture yet of subcellular dynamics in multicellular organisms. Our window into the cellular world just got a whole lot clearer. The study was published in the journal Science.
Researchers from the University of Queensland studied the proportion of the national childhood asthma burden associated with exposure to dampness and gas stoves in Australian homes.
Switching off gas stoves could help reduce the impact of childhood asthma, according to the study published in The Medical Journal of Australia.
A research team from MedUni Vienna led by molecular biologist Jürgen Pollheimer and clinical pharmacologist Bernd Jilma has now developed a new early detection technique for pre-eclampsia
According to the study, researchers studied the role of phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PI4P), a critical host factor for both encephalomyocarditis virus replication that has been recently found to expedite enterovirus replication organelles (RO) formation rather than being strictly required
Phenibut was initially developed in the 1960s in Russia as an anti-anxiety (anxiolytic) drug with cognitive enhancing properties. It has since attracted a strong following of users in the "smart drug" market, with claims of boosting memory recall and exam performance. Originally given to Soviet cosmonauts to combat anxiety and insomnia, the powdered drug is suspected to have played a role in the recent overdose of seven teenagers at a Queensland private school.
