Are your medications affecting your memory?
Many of today’s most popular drugs can make you forgetful. They inhibit your brain’s chemical messengers. And this blocks your concentration, memory and ability to focus. More specifically, these drugs block the activity of a neurotransmitter in your brain called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is directly involved in learning and memory. And blocking it is a risky business… I’ve seen confusion, memory loss, and declining mental skills in patients who take these drugs. New research confirms what I see in my own practice. One recent study found that people taking these kinds of drugs had shrunken ar...

Reading Makes You Carsick Because Your Brain Thinks It's Being Poisoned
(Photo: Toni Barth/EyeEm) By Melissa Dahl There are those who can happily while away a long road trip with the companionship of a good book, their minds flying away with the plot even as their bodies remain motionless in the passenger seat of a car plowing along a freeway. And then there are those -- well, there are those for whom this all sounds very nice in theory but who know that in reality it would probably result in nausea at best, actual vomit at worst. Carsickness is an annoying quirk of human physiology, but it's one that has more to do with your "idiot brain" than you'd probably think, as neuroscienti...

Don ’ t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow: How Participatory Medicine Helped My Family
On Halloween night 2014, my mother and I found ourselves sitting in an executive suite at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC, eagerly awaiting to see my favorite band, Fleetwood Mac. I know it may be a little odd that someone my age, which at the time was 21, is obsessed with that band and not something more “hip” like one of the flavor of the week popstars, but what can I say? I have good taste in music, thanks in part to my mother.

What Causes Vomiting?
Discussion Regurgitation is a passive expulsion of ingested material out of the mouth. It is a normal part of digestion for ruminants such as cows and camels. Nausea is an unpleasant abdominal perception that the person may describe as feeling ill to the stomach, or feeling like he/she is going to vomit. Anorexia is frequently observed. Nausea is usually associated with decreased stomach activity and motility in the small intestine. Parasympathetic activity may be increased causing pale skin, sweating, hypersalivation and possible vasovagal syndrome (hypotension and bradycardia). Retching or dry heaves is when there are sp...

Scott Kelly Happy to Be Back on Earth: ‘This Feels Great’
It would take a brave astronaut to eat the dates, raisins and sweetened dough they serve up during the welcome home ceremony at Zheskagzan airport in Kazakhstan. Dates, raisins and sweetened dough would surely look good to a space station crew member who has just put in the average six-month hitch in orbit—to say nothing of Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko after nearly a full year.

A Possible Cure for Motion Sickness in Cats
As anyone owned by a cat can tell you, very few of our feline friends enjoy a ride in the car.

BOSTON (CBS) – If you feel a little queasy while watching the big screen or scrolling pages on your smartphone, you may be suffering from a relatively new phenomenon of the modern age, a condition called digital motion sickness or cybersickness.
