Contact Sports May Alter the Brain, Scans Suggest

FRIDAY, April 20, 2018 -- There are differences in the brains of athletes who play contact sports and those who play noncontact sports, according to researchers. But they added that it isn't clear if these differences are caused by blows to the head...

Authors: Kim M, Eom Y, Song JS, Kim HM Abstract PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of cataract grade based on wide-field fundus imaging on macular thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and its signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). METHODS: Two hundred cataract patients (200 eyes) with preoperative measurements by wide-field fundus imaging and macular SD-OCT were enrolled. Cataract severity was graded from 1 to 4 according to the degree of macular obscuring by cataract artifact in fundus photo images. Cataract grade based on wide-field fundus image, the Lens Opacity Classification S...

Abstract A quantitative targeted screening method for the determination of residues of a broad group of more than 250 pesticides in surface water samples was developed and validated. Substances were isolated from the sample matrix by solid-phase extraction (SPE), using hydrophilic-lipophilic balanced polymeric sorbents (HLB), and analysed by reversed-phase liquid chromatography (LC) - Orbitrap high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS). Compounds were quantified in full scan acquisition mode, while accurate data dependant MS2 analysis was simultaneously triggered for the unambiguous identification of the targeted su...

In this study we designed an ultrasensitive electrochemical immunosensor for RACK 1 detection using 11-cyanoundecyltrimethoxysilane (11-CUTMS) as a immobilization matrix to immobilize biorecognition element. The used silane agent (11-CUTMS) provides a favorable platform for efficient loading of anti-RACK 1 antibody. The effective loading of the biorecognition element on the 11-CUTMS matrix was monitored by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) images and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) spectra. The electrochemical characterization of the immunosensor was performed by using electro...

“Paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and nonjudgmentally.” That’s how Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, describes mindfulness. In the book Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, another thought leader in mindfulness, Shunryu Suzuki, says that, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” In my experience, I’ve found that cultivating a beginner’s mind opens doors and improves clinical diagnosis. Medical training has phases, and clinicians in different phases think differently. In medical school, students learn...

As we have seen, whatever the Bible may be it is not a manual for morality. Genesis 16 takes it to 11. (But don't worry, it gets worse.)Now Sarai, Abram ’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar;2 so she said to Abram, “TheLord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her. ”Abram agreed to what Sarai said.3 So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife.4 He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.Credit to the NI...

(Natural News) If America’s largest corporations were run the way elected leaders and federal bureaucrats are running America, they most definitely would have gone out of business long ago. That’s according to Samuel Culper, writing at Forward Observer, a private-sector national and strategic intelligence site. In an analysis titled, “Is the United States Too Big...

The objective of the present study was to assess the possible utility of the difference in coronary sinus diameter to quantify stable atherosclerotic plaque(s) using 256-slice coronary computed tomographic angiography. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 336 patients were divided into 2 groups with 168 patients each. Patients who had heart failure were included in the study group and those who did not were included in the non-study group. Patients were subjected to cross-sectional study. Cardiovascular images were performed with 256-slice coronary computed tomographic angiography with a prospective electrocardiogram and clinic...

Authors: Riaz HR, Hashmi SS, Khan T, Hano C, Giglioli-Guivarc'h N, Abbasi BH Abstract Melatonin as plant growth regulator induces differential effects on metabolites that are responsible for reduction, capping and stabilization of zinc oxide nanoparticles. Phytochemical analysis of callus cultures was performed and results were compared with callus cultures supplemented with other plant growth regulators (α-napthalene acetic acid, 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid and thidiazuron). Highest total phenolic and flavonoid content [42.23 mg of gallic acid equivalent (GAE) g-1 DW and 36.4 mg of (quercet...
