The attending doctors told about this and gave an image of individuals uncomfortable manifestations that indicate heart disease. Oftentimes, cardiovascular illnesses remain undetected before the start of […]

Automated detection of sleep states from olfactory brain waves

Scientists have developed a completely automated technique for real-time detection of sleep/wake states in freely moving mice. Conducted by Karim Benchenane, Sophie Bagur and colleagues at the National Centre for Scientific Research in Paris, the study, publishing on November 8 in the open-access journal, PLOS Biology, describes how local brain activity in the olfactory bulb […]

Scientists find that sensory neurons can be used to discover therapies for ALS

Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists have shown that mutations in specific genes that destroy motor neurons and thereby cause the devastating effects of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis— also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease—also attack sensory neurons. The discovery in today’s Scientific Reports indicates that studying sensory neurons could provide new mechanistic insights to […]

Study explores timing of muscle-related problems of statin use

Statins have been linked with muscle pain and other musculoskeletal adverse events (MAEs) in some patients. A new Pharmacology Research & Perspectives study has examined the timing of MAEs that develop during statin therapy and determined whether concomitant drugs used concurrently with statin therapy shifts the timing of MAEs. For the study, cases in which […]
