Translumbosacaral neuromodulation therapy (TNT), a magnetic stimulation technology commonly used for neuropathy, can improve fecal incontinence in the short term.
MicroRNAs that should attack SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, diminish with age, and due to chronic health problems. The findings shed light on why those who are older, and those with health conditions are more susceptible to coronavirus.
A new mathematical model reveals a more realistic picture of the number of likely COVID-19 cases, both in the US and worldwide, compared to reported data.
Neuroimaging technology has limited applicability when assessing a defendant's sanity, a new study reports.
People who suffer from severe insomnia often report having suicidal thoughts. A new study reveals prescribing controlled sleeping medications can help to reduce depression and suicidality in those with chronic sleep problems.
Whole-body vibration (WBV) therapy may be a way in which inflammation associated with diabetes can be controlled. WBV alters the microbiome, increasing levels of a bacterium that creates short-chain fatty acids, which help the body to better use glucose.

Combining exercise with sedentary activities could help improve mood and combat obesity.
Researchers report estrogen may play a significant role in synaptic plasticity and memory formation. The study reports mice whose neurons did not produce estrogen have impairments in spatial reference memories, recognition and contextual fear memories. Restoring estrogen levels assisted in reversing the memory impairments, the study revealed.
