Discussion Angular deformities of the lower extremities are common problems and can be idiopathic, congenital or acquired. Idiopathic knee deformities are usually managed by monitoring and family reassurance as these often improve with time or are minimal and do not cause problems. Those ≤ 10 degrees are considered non-problematic. Genu varus usually peaks between 1-3 years and if problematic can cause waddling gait, lateral thrust and ligamentous laxity. Genus valgus usually peaks around 3-6 years and if problematic can cause circumduction gait, anterior knee pain and patellofemoral instability. Treatment options are m...

How the brain learns during sleep
(Ruhr-University Bochum) Researchers from Ruhr-Universit ä t Bochum and the University of Bonn have investigated which activity patterns occur in the brain when people remember or forget things. They were interested in how the brain replays and stores during sleep what it had learned before. The team recorded the brain activity of epilepsy patients who had electrodes implanted into their brain for the purpose of surgical planning. One result: During sleep, the brain even reactivates memory traces that it can no longer remember later on. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)
