Civil War data reveals that fathers ’ trauma can be passed on to sons
A UCLA study using Civil War-era data suggests that trauma suffered by a father can affect the lifespan of his child, but that the phenomenon can be neutralized before the child is even born — by the nutrients a mother takes in during pregnancy.Dora Costa, a UCLA professor of economics, analyzed records housed in the National Archives tracking the lifespans of sons of Union soldiers who were captured and held by the Confederacy as prisoners of war and who lived to be at least 45 years old.Although the data dated back to the mid-19th century, the findings could have important implications for human health today, Costa...

Feinstein researchers study what the body is telling the brain
The vagus nerve originates in the brain and travels to the periphery of the body, transporting signals that may affect autoimmune and metabolic diseases. A 2014 study showed that inflammation-causing proteins known as cytokines were present in the plasma of lupus patients up to several weeks before their disease flared up. Conversely, these Oklahoma researchers found that inflammation regulators are present during periods when the disease is stable. Now, researchers at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (Manhasset, N.Y.) are working to decipher the neural signals of inflammation that other parts of the ...
