Detecting Alzheimer's Early

28th October 2009 (

Building upon a recent discovery that the same Alzheimer's disease process that goes on in the brain also occurs in the eye, researchers have developed a pair of optical tests that can determine the presence of amyloid beta proteins -- found in all Alzheimer's patients -- in the lens of the eye. 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.

Two All Natural Breakfast Ideas.

For a few years, my kids had almost the same breakfast every morning - cheerios in soy milk, occasionally with a piece of fruit on the side. We didnít do dairy and I didnít want them to have sugar, so this seemed the best option to me at the time. They loved this breakfast.

Awhile back, I was looking for a healthier option to this breakfast. I was reading some things about soy that concerned me, especially since my kids were having it every single day - and I was also looking for ways to increase their fruit and veggie intake.

How Fever Helps Boost a Child's Immune System

It's important for us to realize that a fever is your body attempting to kill the pathogens, which are very sensitive to temperature change. One or two degrees of increased body temperature will, in most cases, do the job. Of course, you should not allow a fever to last for any lengthy period of time because of possible brain damage. However a temperature of 102 or even 103 will not do harm for a couple of hours. Give your body the opportunity to do its job first and be prepared to contact your doctor if the fever persists or moves above 103. A fever is not necessarily a bad thing.

Chasing Medical Miracles

That about sums it up.
Most trials today happen in third world countries, where drug companies test drugs they would not be allowed to test in US or Europe.
Many people are affected for life because of being pumped with these chemicals.
Maybe they should make paying for volunteers or trial subjects illegal.
Then only the altruistic or the sick will volunteer, and drug companies will have to be more careful.

Making payments illegal would set a very bad precedent.
For what constitutes payment? Cash obviously, but what about parking vouchers, meals for all day studies, hospital stays for longer studies, etc.?
Outlawing payments in general would strip PI's from providing at least proper compensations.
I agree using money in itself as an incentive is bad, but the issue is not just black and white.
At least in the US, Japan, and Europe, we must abide by the ICH which recognizes and attempts to address these issues.
