Using only enzymes, researchers were able to change synapses between inhibitory and excitatory types.
A taste for black coffee and dark chocolate is possibly a genetic trait, a new study reports. Coffee drinkers who have a genetic variant that reflects faster caffeine metabolism prefer bitter, black coffee. The same genetic variant is found in those who prefer dark chocolate.
The application of synchronized transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) restored the ability to walk in a patient with spinal cord injury.
Older people who have never participated in resistance exercise programs have a similar ability to build mass muscles as those who frequently exercise and are of similar age. Researchers say that it doesn't matter whether or not you have exercised throughout your life, starting late can still have excellent health benefits.
Combined total intake of both red and processed meat is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease deaths.
Researchers report UroA, a microbial metabolite derived from a compound found in pomegranates and berries, can reduce and protect against inflammatory bowel disease.
A simple actimeter device is helping researchers better understand sleep duration and quality in humans.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
