For NSG residency applications, does it help to have research outside of neurosurgery field (publications in neurology or psychiatry journals)? Or, does it have to be on neurosurgery research? Also, what about basic neuroscience research that is not directly relevant to neurosurgery and is more relevant to psychiatric field (for example, circuits governing thirst/hunger/depression/anxiety/etc)? Would these help as well? Thank you.
Postpartum depression (PPD) affects up to 20% of American mothers and, if left untreated, can have serious, lifelong effects on women and their children.

Quality of life in pwTNMS is severely affected by both their MS and their TN, suggesting management should occur in specialist centres with access to a multidisciplinary team.

ThornalleyHexokinase-2 (HK2) was recently found to produce increased metabolic flux through glycolysis in hyperglycemia without concurrent transcriptional or other functional regulation. Rather, stabilization to proteolysis by increased glucose substrate binding produced unscheduled increased glucose metabolism in response to high cytosolic glucose concentration. This produces abnormal increases in glycolytic intermediates or glycolytic overload, driving cell dysfunction and vulnerability to the d...
