Han, Bernd Weber, Frances Hutchings, Marcus KaiserAbstractSimulations of neural networks can be used to study the direct effect of internal or external changes on brain dynamics. However, some changes are not immediate but occur on the timescale of weeks, months, or years. Examples include effects of strokes, surgical tissue removal, or traumatic brain injury but also gradual changes during brain development. Simulating network activity over a long time, even for a small number of nodes, is a computational cha...

ObjectivesCarotid artery geometry influences blood flow disturbances and is thus an important risk factor for carotid atherosclerosis. Extracellular matrix (ECM) and yes-associated protein (YAP) expression may play essential roles in the pathophysiology of carotid artery stenosis, but the effect of blood flow disturbances of carotid bifurcation location on the ECM is unknown. We hypothesized that carotid artery anatomy and geometry are independently associated with the ECM and YAP expression.MethodsIn this cross-sectional study, 193 patients were divided into two groups: an asymptomatic group (n = 111) and a symptomatic gr...

BOSTON (CBS) — Marijuana use is growing in popularity and local doctors are sounding the alarm about the potential harms the drug could have on the heart. They say marijuana carries many of the same cardiovascular risks as smoking tobacco. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital say while more patients are curbing their use of cigarettes, there has been an acceleration in marijuana use that marijuana users are now exceeding cigarette smokers. And the effects of the drug on cardiovascular health are not fully understood. Some studies have linked marijuana use with stroke, arrhythmias, and other heart conditi...

In this study, there was no increased risk of adverse outcomes (including muscle aches, liver dysfunction, new onset of diabetes, cancer, and bleeding strokes), even when LDL was lowered to as low as 20 mg/dL. Although statin medications themselves have been linked to side effects, especially at high doses, it appears that extremely low LDL concentrations are not responsible for side effects. In other words, lowering LDL beyond our previous target of 70 mg/dL appears to be not only safe but beneficial, in patients with CVD. The post LDL cholesterol: How low can you (safely) go? appeared first on Harvard Health Blog.
