Goodbye, login. Hello, heart scan.

(University at Buffalo) Forget fingerprint computer identification or retinal scanning. A University at Buffalo-led team has developed a computer security system using the dimensions of your heart as your identifier.The system uses low-level Doppler radar to measure your heart, and then continually monitors your heart to make sure no one else has stepped in to run your computer. The technology will be presented next month at the 23rd MobiCom conference.

This study investigated the acute glucose response to low‐intensity, moderate‐intensity, and high‐intensity interval exercise compared to no‐exercise in healthy insufficiently active males using a four‐arm, randomised, crossover design. Ten males (age: 37.3±7.3 years, BMI: 29.3±6.5 kg·m−2) completed four 30 minute interventions at weekly intervals comprising low‐intensity exercise (LIE) at ~35% VO2R, moderate‐intensity exercise (MIE) at ~50% VO2R, high‐intensity interval exercise (HIIE) at ~80% VO2R, and a no‐exercise control. Participants performed cycle ergometer exercise 30 m...

This study investigated whether increasing the concentration of acidic monomers in one-step adhesives would allow reducing their application time without interfering with the bonding ability to primary enamel and dentin. Material and methods: Experimental one-step self-etch adhesives were formulated with 5 wt% (AD5), 20 wt% (AD20), or 35 wt% (AD35) acidic monomer. The adhesives were applied using rubbing motion for 5, 10, or 20 s. Bond strengths to primary enamel and dentin were tested under shear stress. A commercial etch-and-rinse adhesive (Single Bond 2; 3M ESPE) served as reference. Scanning electron microscopy was use...

Conclusions: Accepted theories of the etiology of PDPH need to be revised. This article marks the first time that arachnoid layer damage has been quantified. Dural fibers tend to have sufficient “memory” to close back the hole created by a spinal needle, whereas arachnoid has diminished capacity to do so. The pathogenesis of PDPH and its resolution algorithm are a far more complex process that involves many more “stages” of development than hitherto imagined.

Conclusions: Three-dimensional computed tomography identified the ITA in the medial portion of the ventral surface of the transverse process of the sixth cervical vertebra. The risk vessels of retropharyngeal hematoma during SGB could include the ITA.

Stephen Hawking wrote his Ph.D. thesis all the way back in 1966. But it’s still generating buzz more than half-a-century later. The physicist’s thesis about expanding universes, which he wrote at Cambridge University as a 24-year-old postgraduate student, was made freely available online for the first time ever Monday morning, and immediately incited a frenzy. More than 60,000 people — enough to periodically crash the university’s website — have already read it, the university said. The work was previously available through Cambridge’s library, but readers had to visit the facility in pe...

Cerveau Technologies has inked a deal to license and supply AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) with its [F-18]MK-6240 investigational tau imaging agent, the company said today. After the FDA cleared the investigational new drug application for Cerveau’s imaging agent in June, the company said it planned to work with pharmaceutical partners to evaluate the product’s use in positron emission tomography scans to assess neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News. The post Cerveau inks licensing deal with AbbVie for tau imaging agent appeared first on MassDevice.
