Pregnant women 'should avoid sleeping on back in last trimester'
Conclusion This observational study suggests a mother's sleep position may influence their baby's activity in late pregnancy. Most mothers sleep on their left side, but babies were found to be slightly more likely to be actively awake if women slept on their right side. If they slept on their backs, babies were slightly more likely to be quietly asleep. These are interesting findings, but there are a few points to note: In all maternal sleeping positions, the foetuses were in a state of active sleep more than 80% of the time. Although there was a statistically significant difference in the amount of time babies spent qui...

A dietary supplement dampens the brain hyperexcitability seen in seizures or epilepsy
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) UAB researchers have found that inducing a biochemical alteration in brain proteins via the dietary supplement glucosamine was able to rapidly dampen that pathological hyperexcitability in rat and mouse models. These results represent a potentially novel therapeutic target for the treatment of seizure disorders, and they show the need to better understand the physiology underlying these neural and brain circuit changes.

'Western society is chronically sleep deprived': the importance of the body's clock
The 2017 Nobel prize for medicine was awarded for the discovery of how our circadian rhythms are controlled. But what light does it shed on the cycle of life?The cycle of day and night on our planet is age-old and inescapable, so the idea of an internal body clock might not sound that radical. In science, though, asking the questions “why?” and “how?” about the most day-to-day occurrences can require the greatest leaps of ingenuity and produce the most interesting answers.This was the case for three American biologists, Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young, who earlier this weekwere award...
