BRONX, N.Y., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Children with sleep-related breathing problems (such as snoring or apnea) frequently have concurrent behavioral sleep problems (such as waking repeatedly) -- and vice versa, according to research led by a scientist at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. However, children with one type of sleep problem are not routinely evaluated and treated for the other. The findings suggest that pediatricians, respiratory...

Musical Duets Synchronize Brains As Well As Rhythms
2012-11-29 09:50:53

Frontiers Study shows networking properties between brains when guitarists play together Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin have shown that synchronization emerges between brains when making music together, and even when musicians play different voices. In a study published November 29th in Frontiers in Neuroscience, Johanna Sänger and her team used electrodes to record the brain waves of guitarists while they played different voices...

FARMINGTON, Conn., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The U.S. represents the largest regional market worldwide for both medical device electrodes and digital radiography while Europe represents the single largest EEG/EMG/brain function monitoring equipment market. However, these medical technologies are gaining traction quickly in the emerging markets of China, India and Latin America.

Brain Waves And The Neural Basis Of Consciousness
2012-11-22 07:00:49

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online How our brains encode thoughts, such as perceptions and memories, at the cellular level is one of the biggest puzzles in neuroscience today. One theory suggests that ensembles of neurons represent each unique piece of information. No one knows, however, just what these ensembles look like, or how they form. A new study, published in a recent issue of Neuron, sheds light on how neural ensembles form thoughts and support the...

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ExploreLearning, a division within Cambium Learning Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABCD), announced today that students using Reflex logged 350,000 hours, the equivalent of 40 years, outside of school hours during the 2011-12 school year. During this time, students gained over 2.8 million new fluent facts. The online math fact fluency program is helping educators extend learning in mathematics beyond the school day for hundreds of thousands of...

Brain Waves Translated Into Music
2012-11-15 21:48:46

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Chinese researchers at the University of Electronic Science and Technology in Chengdu, China have developed a method to transform brain waves into music that closely resembles something a human composer would write. According to their report in the open access journal PLOS ONE, they were able to use an electroencephalogram (EEG) to create the pitch and duration of a note, and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to...

Why being preterm could impair memory, learning New research at the University of Adelaide has demonstrated that teenagers born prematurely may suffer brain development problems that directly affect their memory and learning abilities. The research, conducted by Dr Julia Pitcher and Dr Michael Ridding from the University of Adelaide's Robinson Institute, shows reduced 'plasticity' in the brains of teenagers who were born preterm (at or before 37 weeks gestation). The results of the...

A thin, flexible electrode developed at the University of Michigan is 10 times smaller than the nearest competition and could make long-term measurements of neural activity practical at last. This kind of technology could eventually be used to send signals to prosthetic limbs, overcoming inflammation larger electrodes cause that damages both the brain and the electrodes. The main problem that neurons have with electrodes is that they make terrible neighbors. In addition to being...

Promising Nerve Research From Stem Cells Plus Nanofibers
2012-11-07 15:29:57

University of Michigan Health System Researchers coax cells to grow and myelinate along thin fibers, with potential use in testing treatments for neurological diseases Every week in his clinic at the University of Michigan, neurologist Joseph Corey, M.D., Ph.D., treats patients whose nerves are dying or shrinking due to disease or injury. He sees the pain, the loss of ability and the other effects that nerve-destroying conditions cause — and wishes he could give patients more...

Brain Shuts Down During Anesthesia
2012-11-06 13:41:09

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Surgeons have been using general anesthesia since the 19th century, but until now physicians and neurologists didn´t know exactly how brain activity correlates to the loss of consciousness. A new study from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that was recently published in the journal PNAS demonstrated how distinctive brain activity patterns are associated with the loss of...

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...
