New doctor's orders: No earbuds, no music, and no watching TV while eating. Researchers have found that the noise your food makes while you're eating can have a significant effect on how much food you eat.

Scientists report they have found a way to improve predictions of permafrost area and stability in the northern high latitudes. Their improved model finds that the rate of permafrost decline in recent decades is slower than previously thought.

A new study shows that managers play down their competence to appear warmer to their subordinates while the subordinates hide their own warmth in an effort to appear more competent.

Does it help to reward people if you want them to exercise more? Yes, but try a combination of individual and team incentives. The study also showed how smartphones can be a hassle-free way to monitor people's exercise programs.

Research shows that bacteria can be beneficial to body processes such as digestion; however, some bacteria housed in the human body may cause disease. These specialized communities of bacteria in the body are known as microbiomes. Now, researchers have discovered a microbiome in the male…

A new study may have uncovered the fountain of youth: plant extracts containing the six best groups of anti-aging molecules ever seen.

NCCIH Advisory Council member Dr. Martin Blaser spoke on "Perturbing the Early Life Microbiome and Its Consequences" at the Council's February 5, 2016 meeting.

Scientists taught Braille to sighted individuals and found that learning such a complex tactile task activates the visual cortex, when you'd only expect it to activate the tactile one.

Researchers today report on a strategy to make a major advance in cancer treatment even better, and a means to test and refine this new type of immunotherapy.

Colon cancer cells that are pretreated with an ingredient found in cruciferous vegetables are more likely to be killed by a cancer drug that is currently in development, found scientists. This is one of only a few examples of a food ingredient that, in moderate amounts, has a positive influence on…

Recent developments and research related to iron oxide nanoparticles confirm their potential in biomedical applications – such as targeted drug delivery – and the necessity for further studies.

A study on non-coding RNA (Ribonucleic Acid) from prostate cancer patients has identified a series of new prostate cancer markers which can be found in urine. Combining these RNA markers into a single test potentially opens the door for simple, accurate non-invasive testing for prostate cancer.

Recent studies have indicated that patients with sleep apnea may be associated with worse cancer outcomes. Now a new animal study uncovers a possible mechanism which may underlie this link.

Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer, with 400,000 new cases every year in Europe. The success of surgery depends on a variety of factors. Now a new study from scientists in Milan has shown that for local prostate cancers treated with radical prostatectomy, you can preoperatively predict…

Men with fertility problems are at increased risk of metabolic diseases as they age, according to new research.

The human brain is extremely complex, containing billions of neurons forming trillions of synapses where thoughts, behavior and emotion arise. However, when an individual is performing a particular task, not many but only a few neural circuits are in action. The enormous cellular heterogeneity of…

A protein called ROBO1 may delay the progression of breast cancer, according to a new article. The study identifies a signaling pathway that may protect breast cells from the tumorigenic effects of stiff extracellular matrices.

Beta-blockers could be used to reduce the risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations, according to new findings.

A new digital 'map' detailing different mechanisms that contribute to the development of asthma could help researchers redefine the disease. The map works by dividing asthma into different subgroups in order to allow personalized treatment more targeted to the type of asthma patients live with.

It's a common TV show trope: detectives find a lipstick mark at a crime scene, they send a sample to the lab, and suddenly they have a lead. Real-life analyses aren't nearly as fast or straightforward, but scientists are developing a better method for lifting lipstick samples and analyzing them.

Women can choose from many birth control methods, including numerous oral contraceptives, but there's never been an analogous pill for men. That's not for lack of trying: For many years, scientists have attempted to formulate a male pill. Finally, a group of researchers has taken a step toward that…

Hops, those little cone-shaped buds that give beer its bitter flavor, pack a surprisingly healthful punch. They are widely studied for their ability to halt bacterial growth and disease. Now, researchers report that they are close to synthesizing the healthful hops compounds in the lab, which could…

The blueberry, already labeled a 'super fruit' for its power to potentially lower the risk of heart disease and cancer, also could be another weapon in the war against Alzheimer's disease.

Atherosclerosis, a disease in which plaque builds up inside arteries, is a prolific and invisible killer, but it may soon lose its ability to hide in the body. Scientists have developed a nanoparticle that mimics high-density lipoprotein. It can simultaneously light up and treat atherosclerotic…

A SARS-like virus found in Chinese horseshoe bats may be poised to infect humans without the need for adaptation, overcoming an initial barrier that could potentially set the stage for an outbreak according to a new study.
