In this study, researchers evaluated the sensory and cognitive functions of the brain of Auditory steady state response (ASSR) and inhibitory gating (IG). In some clinic examinations and animal experiments, general anesthesia is necessary to conduct electrophysiological recordings. However, the effects of anesthesia on ASSR and IG remain unclear.

Developing a universal influenza vaccine — a vaccine that can provide durable protection for all age groups against multiple influenza strains, including those that might cause a pandemic — is a priority for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health. Writing in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, NIAID officials detail the Institute's new strategic plan for addressing the research areas essential to creating a safe and effective universal influenza vaccine.
The study researchers aimed to evaluate the effect of coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) on cardio?autonomic and hemodynamic functions and on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) indices in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD).
Pregnant women can exercise in warm weather and use saunas or have hot baths without affecting the health of their unborn child, according to a study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine which contradicts current advice that pregnant women should not be exposed to temperatures that increase their core body temperature beyond 39°C.
Visualization of the retinal vasculature in patients with diabetic retinopathy is improved with swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) with extended field imaging (EFI), and the technique also affords greater patient comfort than the usual fluorescein angiography (FA), researchers report.
According to a study, researchers evaluated that the incidence of Merkel cell carcinoma has increased by an "astonishing" 95% in the last decade. The rare but dangerous skin disease is becoming more common as the population ages, outpacing growth in melanoma, and the increase is likely to continue.
