Injuries among rugby union players almost doubled since sport turned professional
Injuries among rugby union players have almost doubled since the sport turned professional, finds a study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The protective equipment worn by players is most likely to have contributed to this increase, suggest the authors. (2000-10-02)

Study links impulsive violence with brain's inability to regulate emotion
The human brain is wired with natural checks and balances that control negative emotions, but breakdowns in this regulatory system appear to dramatically heighten risk of impulsive violent behavior, according to findings of a University of Wisconsin-Madison study. (2000-07-26)

Recovery times drop as surgeon pioneers a fully endoscopic procedure to reach and remove skull-base tumors through an incision between the eyes
Using extremely thin, flexible and precise endoscopic instruments, a new surgical approach performed at Cedars- Sinai Medical Center is making hospital stays and recovery times shorter for patients who have tumors located along the bottom surface of the brain and directly behind the eyes. (2000-06-27)

Imaging pain
Using human brain imaging techniques, Dr. Catherine Bushnell, Director of the Anesthesia Research Unit at McGill University, studied how the human brain is activated when a person experiences pain. She found that the complex experience of pain results from activation in several regions of the cerebral cortex. (2000-02-18)

Brookhaven lab collaboration determines how aging affects brain chemistry
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, the State University of New York at Stony Brook and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have found chemical changes in the brain that may underlie the cognitive deterioration associated with aging. (1999-12-31)

UF study: female knee injuries more likely because of bone structure
Men and women have significantly different skeletal structures in their legs, making women much more likely than men to experience sports-related knee injuries, according to a new University of Florida study that looked specifically at injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament, better known as the ACL. That type of injury is three to four times more common in female athletes than in male athletes. (1999-12-06)

Scientists show hormone involved in cryptorchidism
Cryptorchidism - impaired testicular descent - is a congenital abnormality that affects 2 percent to 3 percent of full-term human males at birth. Scientists at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas have found, in mice, that a hormone is involved in the regulation of testicular descent. (1999-06-29)

Multitasking Behaviors Mapped To The Prefrontal Cortex
Investigators have mapped a region of the brain responsible for a certain kind of multitasking behavior, the uniquely human ability to perform several separate tasks consecutively while keeping the goals of each task in mind. Using imaging technology, scientists from the NINDS found that a specific type of multitasking behavior, called branching, can be mapped to a certain region of the brain. The study will appear in the May 13, 1999, issue of the journal Nature. (1999-05-12)

Brain Activity Differs In Introverts And Extroverts, UI Study Shows
A University of Iowa study adds to growing evidence that being shy or outgoing may be all in your head. Investigators looking at cerebral blood flow and personality found more conclusive signs of different brain activity in introverts and extroverts. (1999-03-29)

Body's Built-In Computer Helps Recovery From Sports Injury
Early intervention after a sports injury is essential to re- boot the body's built-in computer, which aids in stabilizing the smallest movements of muscles and joints, says the October issue of the Penn State Sports Medicine Newsletter. (1998-10-14)

Knee Brace May Be Unnecessary After Surgery, Study Finds
Athletes may not need cumbersome braces after some reconstructive knee surgery. Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) across the knee joint, are especially common among athletes whose sports involve jumping, turning and abrupt starts and stops. Part of rehabilitation includes wearing a knee brace for up to a year. (1998-09-01)

A Concentration Killer: Study Shows Brain Chemistry Defect Is Key To Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder In Adults
For the first time, research directly points to a dopamine production defect in adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The brain chemical findings could lead to more effective treatments for these patients who are inattentive, impulsive, and hyperactive. (1998-08-03)

Golfers Should Resist Quick Return To Greens After Knee Surgery
Golfers recovering from knee surgery should cool their desire to return quickly to the golf course. New research shows the forces acting on a golfer's knees during a golf club's downswing have the same impact as running in a straight line and abruptly turning 90 degrees left or right. (1998-06-17)

Sports Science: Bad knees? New UD Technique Reveals Who Can Safely 'Play Now And Get Fixed Later'
A new screening method helps determine which athletes with torn knee ligaments can safely delay surgery to complete a sports season, University of Delaware researchers reported today. (1998-03-19)

New Research Suggests REM Is About Eyes Not Dreams
A Columbia University researcher is (1998-02-13)

New Clinical Trial Aimed At Improving Treatment For Knee Injuries
While football players toss the pigskin on the field, physicians are using another part of the pig to tackle a knee injury often associated with sports. Clinical trials begin this month to test a material derived from pigs' intestines that, when inserted into the human body, may help regenerate damaged tissues. (1997-12-12)

Link Found Between Menstrual Cycle And Knee Injuries
Researchers at the University of Michigan and the Cincinnati Sports Medicine Clinic have discovered that female athletes are more likely to suffer a common type of knee injury when their estrogen levels are highest. (1997-06-23)

Little League Elbow Can Lead To Permanent Injury
Without simple but necessary precautions, (1997-05-02)

Discovery Of Cell Sites May Shed Light On How Bodily Systems Interact
Scientists have located -- and produced a vivid picture of -- specific cells that contain receptors for a hormone-like substance made by the immune system and associated with declines in growth-hormone production in animals with bacterial infections. (1996-10-03)

Dietary Deficiency Increases Susceptibility To Epileptic Seizures
Diets deficient in amino acids -- chemicals that make up proteins -- can significantly increase susceptibility to epileptic seizures in rats, according to a study by researchers at the University of California, Davis. The findings may lead to a betterunderstanding of some of the mechanisms involved with epilepsy in humans. (1996-07-11)
