A device called an interior laser ophthalmoscope can pick up the presence of the amyloid protein.

New cooling material keeps heat down in densely packed electronics

9 April 2009 (

Oh sure, liquid cooling rigs are all the rage, but they aren't too useful within minuscule things like netbooks, MIDs and pocket projectors. The always churning minds over at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft are already on the issue, recently conjuring up a new material designed to "efficiently dissipate heat even in devices with densely packed components and that can give increasingly miniaturized electronics a longer life." Researchers at the entity's Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Applied Materials Research have teamed with gurus from Siemens and Plansee to create the substance as part of the EU project "ExtreMat." Unfortunately, details beyond that are few and far between, but given that demonstrations have reportedly "already been produced," we'd say it's well on its way to infiltrating things far smaller than your mind can grasp.

The five ages of the brain: Gestation

3 April 2009 (

By the time we take our first breath, the brain is already more than eight months old. It starts to develop within four weeks of conception, when one of three layers of cells in the embryo rolls up to form the neural tube. A week later the top of this tube bends over, creating the basic structure of fore, mid and hindbrain. From this point, brain growth and differentiation is controlled mainly by the genes. Even so, the key to getting the best out of your brain at this stage is to have the best prenatal environment possible. In the early weeks of development, that means having a mother who is stress-free, eats well and stays away from cigarettes, alcohol and other toxins. Towards the end of the brain-building process, when the fetus becomes able to hear and remember (see "The five ages of the brain: 2 Childhood"), sounds and sensations also begin to shape the brain.

Six Ways to Boost Brainpower

1 April 2009 (

Amputees sometimes experience phantom limb sensations, feeling pain, itching or other impulses coming from limbs that no longer exist. Neuroscientist Vilayanur S. Ramachandran worked with patients who had so-called phantom limbs, including Tom, a man who had lost one of his arms. Ramachandran discovered that if he stroked Tom’s face, Tom felt like his missing fingers were also being touched. Each part of the body is represented by a different region of the somatosensory cortex, and, as it happens, the region for the hand is adjacent to the region for the face. The neuroscientist deduced that a remarkable change had taken place in Tom’s somatosensory cortex.

How To Prevent Boat Injuries

A boat ride is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable activities a person can experience. The actual ride is a thrill, the scenery a beautiful natural phenomenon. Quadruple the effect by going far off the coast and anchoring in the middle of the sea. Top it off with food, drinks, and water fun. The only drawback to the adventure is that a boat ride can be among the riskiest activities as well. With all the fun, people in the boat tend to forget the safety precautions and rules due to all the enjoyment and relaxation. This forgetfulness can lead to a wide array of injuries and even death in some cases.

The throttle should be pressed gently and gradually when you initialize the departure. This will ensure that the people in the boat that are standing will keep their balance.

Stopping Strokes

To prevent strokes in at-risk patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rhythm, researchers have devised a mechanical alternative to common drug treatments. In the procedure, surgeons place a small parachute-like device near the left appendage of the heart. Once there, the device deploys and stops clots from leaving the heart and traveling to the brain. In one study, the device was about 60 percent better than the drug Warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke.

When Swine Flu Hits You, What to Do?

Health experts are reminding patients - especially those at high risk for flu-related complications - to seek medical attention at the first sign of flu. They also warn consumers taking over-the-counter medications to read warning labels and be aware of any potential side effects or drug interactions.

When it comes to treating the flu with anti-viral medications, timing is everything. "Anti-virals work best when taken within 48hours of the onset of symptoms. If you're healthy, it's reasonable to wait that first 24 hours. After that, if you have still have a fever, you should probably see a doctor," Joyal said.

Whether it's swine or seasonal flu, sufferers will likely be prescribed anti-viral medication. The most popular are Tamiflu and Relenza, the latter available in inhaler form and therefore not recommended for those with respiratory problems, Joyal said.

Eight Percent of Human Genetic Material Comes from a Virus

The research showed that the genomes of humans and other mammals contain DNA derived from the insertion of bornaviruses, RNA viruses whose replication and transcription takes place in the nucleus. Feschotte wrote on recent research led by Professor Keizo Tomonaga at Osaka University in Japan. Feschotte said this virally transmitted DNA may be a cause of mutation and psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and mood disorders.

Why AIDS propagandists cannot tolerate scientific questions

The conventional AIDS propagandists are predictably lashing out violently against Brent Leung's myth-shattering documentary. One critic, Jeanne Bergman, went so far as to accuse Leung of propagating "lies" about HIV even while she pressured to retroactively change the headline of a story the website published in 2007. That story originally reported on a study in primates that showed a sudden loss of T cells is not a trigger for AIDS.

The original headline read, "Sudden Loss Of T Cells Is Not Trigger For AIDS, New Study Suggests". But after being pressured by Bergman, ScienceDaily changed the headline (nearly two years after the original publication date) to: "Progression Of SIV Infection In Monkeys Points To Differences Between Human And Simian Forms Of AIDS."

Alternative To Open Heart Surgery

Interventional cardiologists created an alternative to open heart surgery by developing a mitral valve clip. To alleviate mitral valve regurgitation--a condition where the heart's mitral valve does not close properly, allowing blood to leak back into the heart--cardiologists insert a catheter into the patient's groin that travels up into the mitral valve. The clip is fed through this catheter, where it finally grasps and tightens the valves' leaflets--effectively preventing blood from leaking. The clip remains in place while the catheter is removed, the entire procedure taking approximately two hours and recovery a few weeks. The procedure is good for those with weaker hearts, when traditional surgery is more dangerous.

Why does acne occur?

There are a few simple steps occur that cause skin blemishes and acne

First, acne occurs when for some unknown reason or combination of reasons, hair follicles, also known as pores, become blocked.

One contributing factors to acne can be how your body normally rids itself of its dead skin cells and any thing that may be working against this regularity.

So such things such as climate, your environment or your overall body health at the time can contribute to acne. As well, your hormones and their effect on your own body's sebum production can contribute to acne, especially for females.

Second reason: the normal dead skin cells that combine with your body's natural sebum oil as it drains through the skin's surface become clogged in these blocked pores. This substance becomes somewhat sticky, further clogging the passageway.

What Causes Skin Cancer?

With an explosion of skin cancer cases over the past twenty years, learning about how to prevent and treat skin cancer is more important today than ever. It is estimated that one million Americans are diagnosed with some form of the disease every year. The problem is so widespread that the National Cancer Institute has stated that close to half of the population who reach the age of sixty-five, will develop at least one type of skin cancer, with fair-skinned people being the most vulnerable.

The primary culprit of skin cancer is the sun. Ultraviolet rays, whether they are UVA or UVB rays, alter the genetic material in cells. The skin then becomes not only damaged, but unable to regenerate properly. Normally, when skin cells are harmed they die and peel away, so new cells can form; but, when this natural process is distorted by UV rays, damaged cells reproduce themselves, which causes a vicious cycle of increased vulnerability and exposure.
