Researchers at the University of Jyväskylä reports that resistance exercise enhances the recycling capacity in muscle cells. The study, published in the journal Acta Physiologica, reports that autophagosome content is increased by resistance training in previously untrained young men, but this response may be blunted by aging.

To provide facilitators the ability to conduct video-guided debriefs and measure changes in technical and nontechnical skills of mentees, we developed a large-scale video monitoring system that evaluates both simulations and debriefs in Bihar, India.
The aim of the overall study was to examine changes in technical and nontechnical skills in simulated clinical scenarios in a large-scale quality improvement project. This article describes the feasibility and design of the video monitoring system and the coding process.
Researchers of the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Universidad de Granada, together with doctors from the Hospital Clínic Universitari de València are working on the development of a new system to help diagnose prostate cancer. The work being developed is part of the SICAP project.
Sustaining a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is associated with an increased risk of developing both dementia and Alzheimer's disease, researchers reported in a study published in The Lancet Psychiatry.
Researchers from the University of Leicester have shed new light on how neurons in the brain communicate with one another. This could potentially help in our understanding of how and why a range of neurodegenerative diseases occur
A Study suggested that researchers determine that Children who undergo tonsillectomy before age three are more likely to have complications afterward than kids who have the surgery when they are older. Researchers studied 1,817 children, ages one to six, who had tonsillectomies at hospitals.
Overall, 95 patients, or 5.2%, had postoperative complications like bleeding, breathing difficulties or dehydration. Kids under three were 50% more likely to have complications than older children. The study was published in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery
Inflammation is a normal part of the body's response to infection, chronic stress or obesity.The present study reports pregnant women with heightened inflammation increase the risk of mental illness or brain development problems in children
A study determines the clinically-utilized anesthetics in sufficient doses changes brain structure and affects cognition and behavior in later life. In the current issue, two of the leading investigators in this field provides an excellent critical review of the literature about children, including recent studies that have contributed significantly to our understanding. Short-Term postoperative changes in behavior are well recognized, but few suspected that anesthesia itself could have long-term neurodevelopmental effects.
Rats can detect tuberculosis (TB)–a deadly infectious disease which generally affects the lungs–in children with higher accuracy than standard microscopy tests, according to the researchers at the Sokoine University of Agriculture in Tanzania.
