New study shows patient’s self-rated health can be better predictor of illness and death

New study shows patient’s self-rated health can be better predictor of illness and death

Patients' self-rated health is a better long-term predictor of illness and death than standard blood tests, blood pressure measurements or other symptomatic evidence a doctor might gather, according to a new study from Rice University. [More]
Study shows parvalbumin-interneurons in the amygdala influence fear memory encoding

Study shows parvalbumin-interneurons in the amygdala influence fear memory encoding

Fear memory encoding, the process responsible for persistent reactions to trauma-associated cues, is influenced by a sparse but potent population of inhibitory cells called parvalbumin-interneurons (PV-INs) in the amygdala, according to a study conducted at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and published online July 14 in the journal Neuron.

Researchers at Hokkaido University have developed a new kind of hydrogel that bonds spontaneously and strongly to defected bones, suggesting potential use in the treatments of joint injuries. [More]
UCLA researchers find that male and female brains have opposite response patterns

UCLA researchers find that male and female brains have opposite response patterns

While measuring brain activity with magnetic resonance imaging during blood pressure trials, UCLA researchers found that men and women had opposite responses in the right front of the insular cortex, a part of the brain integral to the experience of emotions, blood pressure control and self-awareness.

Researchers investigate role of OXTR gene in binge eating

Researchers investigate role of OXTR gene in binge eating

A study by York University researcher Caroline Davis and her colleagues at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health is the first to demonstrate that variants of the Oxytocin Receptor gene contribute to why some of us overeat or engage in episodes of binge eating. [More]
Study shows workplace conditions may contribute to gender-based job stress

Study shows workplace conditions may contribute to gender-based job stress

Social scientists have long known that women working in numerically male-dominated occupations like physics and firefighting report experiencing workplace stress, but men who work in numerically female-dominated occupations like nursing and child care do not. [More]
Study shows stress relief after eating highly palatable foods may vary between sexes

Study shows stress relief after eating highly palatable foods may vary between sexes

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati have found that the brain networks that mediate stress relief after eating highly palatable foods may vary between males and females, and may also depend on the stage of the estrous cycle. [More]

Lifting lighter weights many times can be effective alternative way to gain muscle strength

Lifting lighter weights many times can be effective alternative way to gain muscle strength

New research from McMaster University is challenging traditional workout wisdom, suggesting that lifting lighter weights many times is as efficient as lifting heavy weights for fewer repetitions. [More]
Sleep specialist stresses importance of good sleeping habits, routines as cornerstones of good sleep

Sleep specialist stresses importance of good sleeping habits, routines as cornerstones of good sleep

Work-related stress makes many of us lose sleep, and catching up on lost sleep is high on the agenda as the summer holidays approach. Poor sleep can’t be turned into good overnight, but it pays off to try, as good sleeping habits keep us going on holiday and at work. [More]
