GABA alterations in pediatric sport concussion

Conclusions: GABA/Cre appears increased in a region colocalized with working memory task activation after sport concussion. Further work extending these results in larger samples and at time points across the injury episode will aid in refining the clinical significance of these observations.

This study offers a complex picture of how we can combat the onset of Alzheimer’s – as well as ten areas that scientists need to concentrate on researching in the future. Though the findings may seem bleak, there is some promise in that many of these risk factors can be managed or modified through lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise. – Mark Dallas is an Associate Professor in Cellular Neuroscience at University of Reading. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

So Dear Leader has led his cult -- which now consists of the Republican Party minus Mitt Romney -- into a land of delusion. They have become Postmodernists, denying the existence of any objective reality. The police in Buffalo casually shove an unarmed 75 year old man to the ground, where he cracks his head and lies unconscious, bleeding from an ear. He winds up in the ICU. Everybody has seen video of the event which resulted in the dismissal and arrest of two police officers, who have been charged with assault.Now the Great Orange Helmsman claims he was an " Antifa " provacateur who was attempting to use a "...

Quanterix has reached another step in its goal to advance a blood-based test to detect concussions in athletes. The Billerica, MA-based company said researchers have successfully applied the Single Molecule Array (Simoa) technology to generate data on the value of blood biomarkers as research tools to study pathophysiological mechanisms of concussion and as potential clinical tools and objective indicators for sports-related concussions (SRCs) and mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs). Results have been published in JAMA Network Open, demonstrate the promise of blood biomarkers to serve as clinical tools for objectively id...
