Holocaust Memorial Day: UNISON Renfrewshire remembers Jane Haining
Holocaust Memorial Day is Monday 27 January and UNISON Renfrewshire will be remembering the only Scot who died in a Nazi concentration camp – Jane Haining. In 1932, she responded to an advert in the Church of Scotland magazine for the position of a matron at the Scottish Mission School in Budapest. When Germany annexed Austria in 1937, Budapest became a major destination for Jewish people fleeing the Nazis. Jane and the Scottish Mission did vital work saving Jewish refugees by helping them emigrate to safety – by February 1939 it was running courses in farming, cattle breeding and any other subjects that would ...

The findings, published Jan. 22 in Nature, represent the first ancient DNA from West or Central Africa, and some of the oldest DNA recovered from an African tropical context. They enable a new understanding of the deep ancestral relationships among early Homo sapiens in sub-Saharan Africa. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Study Finds Women Who Suffer Miscarriage May Have Long-Term Psychological Stress
BOSTON (CBS) – It’s estimated that one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, and a new study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology finds that many of those women suffer long-term psychological distress.

One month later, they found that almost a third of women suffered post-traumatic stress, one in four experienced moderate-to-severe anxiety and about 10-percent had moderate-t...

Belgian-American research team uncovers a new mechanism of neurodegeneration
(VIB (the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology)) Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is an inherited neurodegenerative condition that affects 1 in 2500 individuals. Currently, however, it is still lacking effective treatment options. New research has demonstrated that a class of cytoplasmic enzymes called tRNA synthetases can cause CMT by interfering with the gene transcription in the nucleus. This breakthrough is the result of an international academic collaboration, where scientists from the VIB-UAntwerp Center for Molecular Neurology and the Scripps Research Institute were the driving force.

How to Keep Alzheimer ’s From Bringing About the Zombie Apocalypse
I tried to kill my father for years. To be fair, I was following his wishes. He’d made it clear that when he no longer recognized me, when he could no longer talk, when the nurses started treating him like a toddler, he didn’t want to live any longer. My father was 58 years old when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He took the diagnosis with the self-deprecating humor he’d spent a lifetime cultivating, constantly cracking jokes about how he would one day turn into a zombie, a walking corpse. We had a good 10 years with him after the diagnosis. Eventually, his jokes came true. Seven years ...

The investigational Nocira device for acute migraine treatment non-invasively creates precisely controlled patterns of gentle air pressure changes in the outer ear. This stimulates unique pressure-activated nerve receptors, found only in the ear, that Nocira’s researchers hypothesize target and reset pain centers in the brain. Nocira presented its clinical pilot study data in September at the International Headache Congress in Dublin, showing that 20 out of 30 subjects were completely pain free, and 28 out of 30 had at least 50% relief, after just a 20-minute treatment with the device. “...
