Researchers identify first two core genes that regulate deep sleep and dreaming

Researchers have identified the first two core genes that regulate the amount of deep sleep and dreaming, a key development they believe will lead to the discovery of a network of related genes controlling sleep. [More]
Shape of blood flow in heart's upper left chamber may help predict stroke risk

Shape of blood flow in heart's upper left chamber may help predict stroke risk

Using specialized CT scans of a healthy heart and one with heart disease, a team of Johns Hopkins cardiologists and biomedical engineers say they've created computer models of the "shape" of blood flow through the heart's upper left chamber that someday may help predict stroke risk. [More]
