Human brain clock can be shifted by light exposure, potentially to align it with night shift patterns, a new study published in The Journal of Physiology reports. A personalized approach, with light-dark exposure scheduled and taking into account whether someone is a 'morning' or 'evening' person, could reduce the increased risk of health problems in shift workers.

Researchers said to Reuters Health – For women worried by vaginal symptoms after menopause, prescription local estrogen treatments and expensive specialty lubricants may provide relief, but no more so than a placebo
Spurred on by climate change, international travel and international trade, disease-bearing insects are spreading to ever-wider parts of the world. This means that more humans are exposed to viral infections such as Dengue fever, Chikungunya, Zika, West Nile fever, Yellow fever and Tick-borne encephalitis. For many of these diseases, there are as yet no specific antiviral agents or vaccines.
Robust physiological circadian rhythms form an integral part of well-being. The aging process has been found to impact systems that drive the circadian physiology negatively, typically manifesting as symptoms associated with disrupted sleeping patterns.
In Bangladesh, husbandry systems and the geographic location of poultry farms are strongly associated with the type of poultry reared. Researchers hypothesized that live poultry trading practices and networks may vary according to the types of poultry.
While live poultry trading networks have been described in multiple settings, they have not been characterized according to poultry types. Yet, identifying the types of poultry traded through these networks may provide insights to understand how these networks may generate disease risk for poultry and human populations.
Dr. Hany Osman of the Indiana University School of Medicine invented the native-state microscope which could be used during surgery to visualize the structures using fiberoptics without requiring biopsy.
Making sure of proper treatment for children with asthma can significantly increase the likelihood they will not have the condition as an adult, according to a study to be presented at a major lung and respiratory conference in Adelaide.
We sought to investigate thalamic and basal ganglia (BG) metabolism on interictal 18F-FDG PET in relation to temporal hypometabolism using our institutional database of patients with medically intractable TLE and compare the results to the published literature.
The analysis was based on standardized uptake value (SUV), which constitutes the current standard of semi-quantitative 18F-FDG uptake measurement in clinical practice.
