BOSTON (CBS) – It’s a parent’s worst nightmare, hearing not only that your child has cancer but that she might also lose her eye. That’s exactly what happened to an Andover family and their 3-year-old daughter. But as Dr. Mallika Marshall reports, doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital are using a revolutionary technique to try to save her vision and her life. A little over a year ago Dania Snyder was a typical toddler until her parents noticed something unusual about her right eye. “You could see a little flash of a fleshy piece sort of through her pupil,” explains PJ, Dania’...

When the eyes move, the eardrums move, too
(Duke University) Simply moving the eyes triggers the eardrums to move too, even in the absence of sound, says a new study by Duke University neuroscientists. The findings, which were replicated in both humans and rhesus monkeys, provide new insight into how the brain coordinates what we see and what we hear. It may also lead to new understanding of hearing disorders, such as difficulty following a conversation in a crowded room. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Breakthrough study shows how plants sense the world
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Plants lack eyes and ears, but they can still see, hear, smell and respond to environmental cues and dangers. They do this with the aid of hundreds of membrane proteins that sense microbes or other stresses. Researchers now have created the first network map for 200 of these proteins. The map shows how a few key proteins act as master nodes critical for network integrity, and the map also reveals unknown interactions. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

Marriage and Mania: Disparate Depictions of Bipolar Disorder in Mainstream Romance Novels
When characters with mental illness appear in popular fiction, it is typically because the work itself focuses on the mental illness. However, there is a small contingent of fictional projects that have characters with mental illness that do not make that illness the central plot. These books follow the typical narrative arc and literary conventions of their genre and include conflicts unrelated to mental illness; psychiatric disorder is featured but defines neither the character nor the book. Authors writing about mental illness, however small or large a part of the plot, can raise public awareness and understandin...

Researchers say these connections help lay the groundwork for the developmental and cognitive skills of imitation and empathy. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

One night, while doing our son’s usual bath routine, I saw what looked like a hump on his back. Avery was 6 months old at the time. At first, I thought that it was just something I was imagining, but the hump never went away. In fact, it seemed to get worse. When Avery was 13 months old, he was officially diagnosed with infantile scoliosis, a rare form of scoliosis that occurs in children under 2 years of age. The first hospital we were referred to would not even consider treating Avery until he was at least 18 months, and that was not a guarantee, so after doing some research, we came to Boston Children’s Hosp...
