As the weather is conducive for mosquitoes-borne diseases, Intersectoral Coordination Committee meeting was organised at North DMC headquarters Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Civic Centre, on the prevention and control of the diseases such as dengue, malaria and chikungunya.
Latest findings show that now exercise may improve cognitive function in those at risk for Alzheimer's by improving the efficiency of brain activity associated with memory. Alzheimer, which has become a major panic in US among the older, certainly it will provide a relief for such persons.
There are some good hope for the patients of Alzheimer's as researchers have made a new breakthrough which may not only help diagnose Alzheimer's, but also assess its severity. Needless to say, patients with Alzheimer's disease currently undergo neuropsychological testing to detect signs of the disease. The test results are difficult to interpret and are insufficient for making a definitive diagnosis.
As per the New research on Depression, the researchers have founded a link between depression with poor parenting ability, which could prove a key help for exploring the ways of preventing the trait from being passed to the progeny. The researchers of the University of Exeter have published an articles on it where they identified those symptoms of depression, which are expected to create difficulty in parenting.
In a recent research, researchers have identified six proteins in spinal fluid, which could be used as markers for the illness. Katarina Kagedal, reader in Experimental Pathology at Linkoping University, said that in the patients of Alzheimer's, some mechanism happens in the lysosomes, which make them unable to manage the extra amount of beta amyloid.
Researchers have used the fruit fly to find out how the brain integrates multiple signals to identify one unique smell. A team led by Associate Professor Glenn Turner has described how a group of neurons in the fruit fly brain recognize multiple individual chemicals in combination in order to define, or remember, a single scent. The olfactory system of a fruit fly begins at the equivalent of our nose, where a series of neurons sense and respond to very specific chemicals.
A new has found that exercise may improve cognitive function in those at risk for Alzheimer's by improving the efficiency of brain activity associated with memory. Memory loss leading to Alzheimer's disease is one of the greatest fears among older Americans.
A new study has revealed that coffee consumption can reduce the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which is the most common type of liver cancer, by about 40 percent. The research also indicated that three cups of coffee per day reduces liver cancer risk by more than 50 percent.
Researchers have said that they may now know about the mechanism that our brain uses to make sense of novel situations. Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder showed that brains could process these new situations by relying on a method similar to the "pointer" system used by computers.
