Automated System Could Monitor Drug-Induced Comas Accurately
2013-11-01 10:32:56

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A patient with a traumatic brain injury will sometimes be placed into a medically-induced coma, which allows the brain time to heal and dangerous swelling to subside. Brought about through the use of general anesthesia drugs, medically-induced comas can last for days. In the current system, doctors and nurses need to monitor these patients to ensure they are at the right level of sedation. A new study published in the journal PLOS...

Similar to passengers on an urban transit system, every protein made in the cell has a specific destination and function. Channels in cell membranes help direct these proteins to their appropriate target. Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and their colleagues have now captured images of these channels as they open to allow proteins to pass through a membrane, while the proteins are being made. These findings are published as a Letter in Nature (Park, E. et al. 2013)....

Humans And Rodents Process Their Mistakes
2013-10-21 06:55:57

Brown University Study finds parallels in neural processing of 'adaptive control' People and rats may think alike when they've made a mistake and are trying to adjust their thinking. That's the conclusion of a study published online Oct. 20 in Nature Neuroscience that tracked specific similarities in how human and rodent subjects adapted to errors as they performed a simple time estimation task. When members of either species made a mistake in the trials, electrode recordings showed...

Brain Waves May Tell How Much We Would Pay For A Cup Of Coffee

[ Watch the Video: Coffee Prices And Brain Scans ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A German neurobiologist says that Starbucks isn't charging enough for your double tall, two-pump caramel white chocolate mocha. Kai-Markus Müller is developing a new way to test prices by measuring brain waves, and he believes that Starbucks maybe missing out on some premium pricing. "Everyone thinks that they've truly figured out how to sell a relatively inexpensive product for...

Neurofeedback Can Enhance The Brain's Signal-to-noise Ratio

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As a needle sweeps across the grooves of a worn vinyl record, it carries the distinct sounds of hisses, scratches and even the echo of skips. For many years, however, if someone yearned to hear Frank Sinatra sing "Fly Me to the Moon," they were able to listen to his crooning baritone with technical clarity, courtesy of the increased signal-to-noise ratio of digital re-masterings. Recent advances in neurofeedback techniques have made...

New Field Of Optogenetics Could Offer Solutions For Cardiac Arrhythmia
2013-09-19 14:05:49

National Science Foundation With a few flicks of a light switch--on-off-on-off--Stanford University's Oscar Abilez is one step closer to changing the lives of millions. Why? Because as a focused speck of light turns on and off in Abilez's lab, a cluster of heart cells begins to expand and contract. He demonstrates that he can control the rhythm of a heart using just light. Currently, 4 million Americans suffer from some degree of cardiac arrhythmia, wherein a person's heart beats too...

Electrocardiography
2013-04-30 09:55:53

Electrocardiography, sometimes called ECG or EKG, is a measurement of the electrical activity of the heart as the linear process unfolds. With the use of electrodes that are attached to the skin, this non-invasive test can provide vast information as to the patient’s status. By leaving the electrodes attached, the patient’s status can be monitored over intervals of time and recorded on the device. This data can be sent electronically for consults about potential treatments without delay....

Electrooculography
2012-12-31 11:47:45

Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
