A ink between chronic pain and lack of sleep has been identified by a team of researchers. They also discovered that people with pain who believe they won't be able to sleep are more likely to suffer from insomnia, thus causing worse pain. A pioneering study could lead to specific cognitive therapy…

Wearable devices that monitor physical activity are not reliable tools for weight loss, says a new study. The study specifically investigated whether regular use of commercially available activity trackers is effective for producing and sustaining weight loss. Participants without physical activity…

Human babies and even animals have a basic number sense that many believe evolves from seeing the world and trying to quantify all the sights. But vision has nothing to do with it -- neuroscientists have found that the brain network behind numerical reasoning is identical in blind and sighted…

A novel cancer treatment has been developed that halts fat synthesis in cells, stunting tumors, report researchers. Cells create their own fat molecules to build their plasma membranes and other critical structures. The researchers have found a way to obstruct this instrumental process to stifle…
