Iowa State astronomers are part of an international team that has been analyzing data from NASA's TESS Mission. The astronomers describe their study of two red-giant stars -- older, 'retired' stars no longer burning hydrogen in their cores -- in a paper recently published by The Astrophysical Journal. The study details an interesting case of planetary evolution and demonstrates how star studies can be an important part of the mission's search for planets beyond our solar system.
New research at Case Western Reserve University found big gaps in services and continued care for children with autism -- and their families -- as they transition from adolescence to adulthood.
A new study published in Health Services Research and led by a Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) researcher finds that, in the first year and a half of the program, children with mental health diagnoses who were served by the TEAM UP sites went for more primary care visits than similar children served by nearby non-participating community health centers.
Survivors of sepsis -- a life-threatening response to an infection -- have expressed a need for advocacy and follow-up support, according to a study authored by professors at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, and published in Dimensions of Critical Care Nursing.
E-meditation combines meditation with a low-level electrical stimulation that activates areas of the brain associated with meditation. Previous studies have suggested the combination of meditation and brain stimulation leads to reduced stress. At the Joint Meeting of Neuromodulation, Medical University of South Carolina researchers reported results from a study conducted during a five-day meditation retreat. E-meditation enhanced practice in both novice and experienced meditators, who were able to self-administer stimulation during meditation with minimal assistance.
Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications, Volume 4, Supplement 1 publishes selected abstracts from the 30th Great Wall International Cardiology (GW-ICC) Conference, Beijing, China, October 10 - 13, 2019 Beijing, November 19, 2019: Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications (CVIA), in its role as the official journal of the Great Wall International Cardiology Conference (GW-ICC), has published selected abstracts from the 30th GW-ICC. The abstracts are now online at https://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/cscript/cvia/2019/00000004/a00101s1
Metal copper from agricultural runoff and marine paint leaching from boat hulls poses an emerging threat to soft coral sea fans in the waters around Puerto Rico.
A study from Arizona State University and the University of Denver has validated a new statistical model that uses multiple standardized test scores over time to predict future academic performance. The dynamic measurement model accurately predicted academic performance decades in the future, and the predictions were three times better than current assessment methods. The model can be implemented immediately by using existing standardized test scores, such as annual assessments given to school children.
New research from University of Pennsylvania, University of California, San Diego and Yale University shows Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign didn't benefit from voters' fears of immigrants in communities experiencing greater demographic change, a finding that surprised even the political scientists who conducted the study, including Penn political scientist Daniel J. Hopkins.
NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of Typhoon Kalmaegi as it moved into the Luzon Strait and continued to affect the northern Philippines.
Carbon electrodes will last longer than metal when embedded in the brain of patients with Parkinson's and tremors, and won't be affected by MRI.
NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of newly formed Tropical Storm Sebastien, located northeast of the Leeward Islands in the Atlantic Ocean.
While parents with substance use disorders are more likely to treat their children harshly, they don't do so all the time. What are the triggers? And how can substance-dependent mothers and their medical care providers predict difficulties across challenging parenting contexts?
By the time they reach adulthood, one in four South African girls will have contracted the HIV virus. Experiencing depression puts these girls at even higher risk of infection, reveals analyses led by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, The findings, which appear in the American Journal of Epidemiology, suggest that interventions targeted at improving mental health among adolescent girls may help stem the spread of HIV throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
Some 'canaries' are 50 feet long, weigh 70 tons, and are nowhere near a coal mine. But the highly endangered North Atlantic right whale is sending the same kind of message about disruptive change in the environment by rapidly altering its use of important habitat areas off the New England coast.
Patients and medical providers should be aware that chronic opioid use can interfere with sleep by reducing sleep efficiency and increasing the risk of sleep-disordered breathing, according to a position statement from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
MIT researchers can now identify T cells reactive to a particular target from a patient's cells, and to perform high-throughput single-cell RNA sequencing of those cells.
A UC Davis study found that Lactobacillus plantarum bacteria rapidly repaired damaged gut lining (known as leaky gut) in monkeys infected with chronic simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), an HIV-like virus. It linked chronically inflamed leaky gut to the loss of PPARα signaling and damage to mitochondria.
Avoidance of apoptotic death via a hyperploid salvage survival pathway after platinum treatment in high grade serous carcinoma cell line modelsTuesday November 19th, 2019 05:00:00 AM
The cover for issue 62 of Oncotarget features Figure 7, 'Proposed model of the hyperploid pathway as a salvage survival strategy regulated by the G2-M checkpoint,' by Yeung, et al.
A new study finds that while the current United States administration's policies in Africa may appear undeveloped, there are distinct trends and tendencies that have the potential to negatively impact Africa's economic growth.
