To translate touch, the brain can quickly rearrange its sense of the body
The brain is bombarded by information about the physical proportions of our bodies -- familiar sensations, such as a puff of wind, serve to remind the brain of the body's outer bounds. Researchers report that the brain's ability to interpret external signals and update its sense of bodily self is more dynamic than had been previously thought and that such updates can happen very quickly, altering within a matter of seconds how body parts and individual touch sensations are perceived.

Leadless pacemaker study assesses safety and efficacy
A leadless cardiac pacemaker showed 'good safety and reliable function' during the initial six months of follow-up in the LEADLESS II study, investigators reported during a Hot Line presentation at the ESC congress 2015. (2015-08-30)

Deadly E. coli strain decoded
The secret to the deadly 2011 E. coli outbreak in Germany has been decoded, thanks to research conducted at Michigan State University. The deadliest E. coli outbreak ever was traced to a particularly virulent strain that researchers had never seen in an outbreak before. In the current issue of the academic journal PLoS ONE, a team of researchers led by Shannon Manning, MSU scientist, suggests a way to potentially tame the killer bacteria. (2012-07-26)

Food additive may prevent spread of deadly new avian flu
A common food additive can block a deadly new strain of avian influenza virus from infecting healthy cells, report researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine in the online journal, PLOS ONE. (2013-10-23)

Clinical trial looks at impact of platelet-rich plasma therapy on tennis elbow
Tiger Woods and other big name athletes have reportedly used PRP therapy for injuries. Does it work? (2013-11-12)

UEA research shows moderate exercise could be good for your tendons
Moderate exercise could be good for keeping your tendons healthy according to new research from the University of East Anglia funded by Arthritis Research UK. The onset of tendon disease has previously been associated with exercise. However new research published today in the journal Molecular Cell Research shows that doing moderate exercise could help guard against and treat the painful and often debilitating condition.

Tendons absorb shocks muscles won't handle
Researchers at Brown University have learned how muscles and tendons in the legs deal with sudden impacts. Experiments showed that tendons absorb the initial burst of energy from impact before the leg muscles react. The tendons act as shock absorbers, protecting the leg muscle from damage at the moment of impact. Results are published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. (2011-09-27)

Cedars-sinai surgery dept. implements innovative surgical training tool to reduce medical errors
Cedars-Sinai's Department of Surgery has transformed its weekly Morbidity and Mortality Conferences into an innovative educational study curriculum - the M & M Matrix. This progressive approach for reviewing surgical errors provides a forum where complications are discussed, analyzed, summarized into teaching points, and disseminated via e-mail to residents and participating attending staff, who are subsequently tested on the material.

Bacteria discovery could lead to antibiotics alternatives
Scientists have discovered an Achilles heel within our cells that bacteria are able to exploit to cause and spread infection. (2012-05-03)

CNIO researchers 'capture' the replication of the human genome for the first time
The Genomic Instability Group led by researcher Óscar Fernández-Capetillo at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre, has for the first time obtained a panoramic photo of the proteins that take part in human DNA division, a process known as replication. (2013-04-25)

AOSSM presents annual research awards
In order to recognize and encourage cutting-edge research in key areas of orthopaedic sports medicine, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine will present ten research awards and seven grants during its Annual Meeting, July 12-15 in Baltimore, Md. As a leader in orthopaedic sports medicine, AOSSM annually provides more than $350,000 to research initiatives and projects around the country. Award research projects range from Achilles tendon repair to gender differences in ACL repair. (2012-07-10)

Fewer Americans undergoing lower limb amputation
There have been dramatic decreases in the number and severity of lower limb amputations over the past decade, according to a new study published in the July 2013 issue of Foot & Ankle International. At the same time, orthopaedic advances in treating diabetic foot ulcers have become more commonplace, hopefully decreasing the need for amputation. (2013-07-09)

Rheumatoid arthritis patients caught in middle of doctors' disagreement over hand surgery
More than two million Americans with rheumatoid arthritis are caught in the middle of a debate among physicians over which treatment - medications or hand surgery - will help their ravaged fingers and wrists most. And a new study finds that entrenched attitudes and lack of communication among rheumatologists and hand surgeons, and a dearth of data comparing the two strategies, are keeping the controversy going.

An infallible quantum measurement
For quantum physicists, entangling quantum systems is one of their every day tools. Entanglement is a key resource for upcoming quantum computers and simulators. Now, physicists in Innsbruck/Austria and Geneva/Switzerland realized a new, reliable method to verify entanglement in the laboratory using a minimal number of assumptions about the system and measuring devices. Hence, this method witnesses the presence of useful entanglement. Their findings on this (2013-08-05)

New National Guidelines Make Pumping Iron And Aerobic Activities An Easier "Fit" Into Daily Life
Updated national exercise guidelines released this week by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in Orlando show breaking up aerobic exercise into three 10-minute sessions throughout the day can be just as effective as one 30 minute session. (1998-06-05)

Some Neanderthals practiced cannibalism, shows find from French cave, as reported in the 1 October issue of Science
The best evidence yet that some members of a now-extinct species of human, the Neanderthals, practiced cannibalism has emerged at a cave site in France's Ardèche region. This news release is also available in French. (1999-10-01)

Transplanted human stem cells develop into broad range of tissues, persist over a year in research at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Adult human mesenchymal stem cells taken from bone marrow have been induced to develop into a wide range of normal tissues when transplanted into fetal sheep. The transplanted human cells have persisted for over a year without immune system rejection, in research with potential implications for tissue engineering in diseases such as muscular dystrophy.
