Google algorithm proves extremely useful in cancer study
2012-05-21 19:30:00
If you’ve ever had a problem with some of Google’s frivolity, it’ll all be forgiven after hearing this: researchers have used Google’s webpage algorithm to find cancer biomarkers, which can lead to early diagnosis and better treatment. Recently, researchers at Germany’s Dresden University of Technology ranked about 20,000 proteins by genetic relevance to the progression of pancreatic cancer and found seven that can help them diagnose the aggressiveness of each individual case. This leads to more effective and personalized treatment. These biomarkers were found by employing the Google webpage algorithm, which Google uses to decide in which order to present your search results. The algorithm is complex and involves many factors, but one key factor is the amount of interconnectivity a page has. A webpage with no other pages linking to it and no social media interaction seems less important to Google. In that vein, researchers helped narrow their protein...
New Study Shows Simple Task at Six Months of Age May Predict Risk of Autism
2012-05-20 21:53:00
A new prospective study of six-month-old infants at high genetic risk for autism identified weak head and neck control as a red flag for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and language and/or social developmental delays. Researchers at the Kennedy Krieger Institute concluded that a simple “pull-to-sit” task could be added to existing developmental screenings at pediatric well visits to improve early detection of developmental delays. “Research aimed at improving early detection of autism has largely focused on measurement of social and communication development,” said Dr. Rebecca Landa, study author and director of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders at Kennedy Krieger Institute. “However, disruption in early motor development may also provide important clues about developmental disorders such as autism.” Dr. Landa will present this and other new research on motor delay and how it impacts development of language and social skills at the In...

Study finds psychopaths have distinct brain structure
2012-05-07 20:57:00
Scientists who scanned the brains of men convicted of murder, rape and violent assaults have found the strongest evidence yet that psychopaths have structural abnormalities in their brains. The researchers, based at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, said the differences in psychopaths’ brains mark them out even from other violent criminals with anti-social personality disorders (ASPD), and from healthy non-offenders. Nigel Blackwood, who led the study, said the ability to use brain scans to identify and diagnose this sub-group of violent criminals has important implications for treatment.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - In a 2009 survey of eighth graders in Oregon, one in 16 said they had participated in the "choking game," according to research published Monday. The game -- a misnomer because of its risks, researchers say -- involves putting pressure on the neck with a towel or belt to cut off someone's oxygen supply, then releasing the pressure to give a "high" sensation. The one-in-16 figure is in line with research from elsewhere in the United States and in other countries where youth are known to play the choking game, according to Dr. ...

New Zealand study lowers risk of behavior problems in pre-term children
2012-04-04 18:36:00
Children born early are less likely to develop serious behavioral problems than previously thought because previous studies may have relied too much on the opinions of ?sensitive? parents, according to a controversial New Zealand research. The study by the Child Development Research Group at the University of Canterbury looked at the emotional and behavioral adjustment of children born very preterm (VPT). It showed that by age 6 children born very preterm (less than 33 weeks) were at an increased risk of emotional and attentional problems when compared with their full term peers, said a statement from the university.

Electroacupuncture may be effective for depression: study
2012-03-29 14:29:00
Boosting the effect of acupuncture needles with small electric currents may be effective in treating depression, a study in Hong Kong has found. Led by Zhang Zhang-jin at the School of Chinese Medicine, University of Hong Kong, the researchers used electroacupuncture to stimulate seven spots on the heads of 73 participants, who had suffered several bouts of depression in the last 7 years. The electroacupuncture was given in addition to medication that the patients were already taking and meant to augment their treatment, Zhang told a news conference. Half the patients received electroacupuncture nine times over three weeks, while the other half - the placebo group - only had needles inserted superficially into their heads.
Indian Use More Social Media Than Emails, Says Study
2012-03-29 13:56:00
The findings of a survey commissioned by Norton to find out trends in Internet usage by Indians have verified the speculation that Indians show more love to social media than email. Norton is an online software security company which specialises in anti-virus software. The survey reports that an average Indian spends roughly 9.7 hours a week on multiple social networking services like Facebook and Twitter and other applications that enable chatting with friends. Email on the other hand are showing a usage statistic of 6.1 hours a week. 8 out of 10 people quizzed by the survey claimed that they cannot live without the Internet for more than 24 hours. We can vouch for this statistic because now that more and more people are smartphones or Internet enabled feature phone, the web has become some sort of a life-line to the world in general and the withdrawal effects can be severe. Overall, Indians spend 8.4 hours a day or up to 58 hours a week online. A proper breakdown of the hours spe...

Study finds electrotherapy dampens brain connections
2012-03-19 17:49:00
Scientists have discovered how electroconvulsive or electric shock therapy - a controversial but effective treatment - acts on the brains of severely depressed people and say the finding could help improve diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) involves first anaesthetizing the patient and then electrically inducing a seizure. It has a controversial reputation - gained in part because of its role in the 1975 film ?One Flew Over The Cuckoo?s Nest? starring Jack Nicholson - but is a potent and effective treatment for patients with mood disorders like severe depression.

Study questions religion-depression link
2012-03-06 05:40:00
Some research has suggested that religious people may have a buffer against major depression - but new findings cast some doubt on that. Researchers said people who develop depression might be more likely to stop going to services, which could explain why those who regularly go to religious services have lower rates of depression than the less-devout. The new study found evidence of just that.

Cedars to the East: A Study of Modern Lebanon ? Student Pulse

Solving the political problems faced by Lebanon is no easy task. With deep, internal conflicts that date far back and are still tied to a political system imposed by a colonial power, Lebanon?s democracy is delicate to say the least. Besieged constantly by foreign influences and powers, (France, Syria, Israel, Iran, and Saudi Arabia, just to name a few) Lebanon?s sovereignty has never been fully stable, preventing the country from developing and adopting a political system based around its preferences, not the preferences of others. via Cedars to the East: A Study of Modern Lebanon – Student Pulse.
Statin use tied to lower risk of depression: study
2012-03-01 02:36:00
People with heart disease who take cholesterol-lowering statins may have a lower risk of depression than those who don?t take the drugs, according to a new study from California. It?s still not clear whether the popular medications have anything to do with the brighter mood among users. But the results do support the hypothesis that clogged-up blood vessels in the brain could play a role in depression, said Dr. Christian Otte. ?It is possible that statins exert beneficial effects on depressive symptoms through protective effects on cerebrovascular processes,? Otte, of the Charité University Medical Center in Berlin, told Reuters Health by email. Statins are some of the most widely used drugs worldwide. Between 2005 and 2008, a quarter of U.S. adults over 45 took the drugs, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Fredrik Thordendal: Study Finds Listening To Djent Is Potentially Life-Thre
2012-02-29 00:55:00
The New England Journal of Otolaryngology, the foremost magazine on ear related issues, released a study on Friday claiming that djent music can lead to several health issues including dizziness, vomiting and the odd compulsion to have more than 20 strings on a guitar. The study was commissioned last year after 52 people were hospitalized after collapsing at a Meshuggah concert in Silver Springs, Maryland. Several of the injured were also diagnosed with logherria, a condition marked by incoherent babbling, as well as Fripp?s Disorder, a rare disease that renders people unable to enjoy music unless it is in rare, obscure time signatures. The journal went on to call djent ?the greatest threat to the health of the human ear drum? and went as far as to call for the arrest and caning of Meshuggah frontman Fredrik Thordendal.full report
Depressed Patients Less Able To Store Information, According To New Study
2012-02-28 14:33:00
Researchers found that people suffering from depression are less able to store information because their brains are less plastic and adaptable. The experiment, conducted by the Ssientists at Karolinska Institute has shown that D-serine, a substance synthesized by astrocytes, may improve memory function. According to Mia Lindskog, biologist and Assistant Professor at Karolinska Institutet?s Department of Neuroscience, the research team was able to heal memory-related disorders by administering D-serine. The experiment was conducted on FSL rats, bred with a special predisposition to depression. First of all, the animals were tested to see if they present symptoms of human depression. In the first test, the rats were shown different objects which they had to recognize. With the second test, scientists traced other depression symptoms like apathy: the rats were placed in a container with water and observed whether they are trying to jump out of the container or simply swim arou...
