Whether we feel scared or pleased in an environment and how we explore it is down to our combined perception of space and of our bodies, according to new research conducted in a virtual reality environment. The study suggests that the brain uses the interplay of these factors to control our…

New potential vaccines have been developed that protect animals against the bacteria that causes the deadly plague. The plague of Black Death infamy has had the power to strike fear in people since the Middle Ages -- and for good reason. Once someone begins to show symptoms, the disease progresses…

Men with prostate cancer who are treated with testosterone-lowering drugs are twice as likely to develop dementia within five years as prostate cancer patients whose testosterone levels are not tampered with, research shows.

Sleep-deprived preschoolers consumed about 20 percent more calories than usual, 25 percent more sugar and 26 percent more carbohydrates, say researchers. The following day, the kids were allowed to sleep as much as they needed. On this "recovery day," they returned to normal baseline levels of…

A $1.5 million grant has been awarded to a research team to study the impact of diagnostic error on outcomes for pulmonary patients and the use of lung-function testing in primary care. Studies suggest 30 to 50 percent of patients may have an incorrect diagnosis.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended governments raise taxes on sugary drinks and increase subsidies on fruits and vegetables, in an effort to fight global obesity and diabetes. An American researchers says the WHO's approach is bound to get mixed results.

A new approach to image functional activity in the brains of individual fetuses has now been pioneered by researchers, allowing a better look at how functional networks within the brain develop. The work addresses a common problem of functional MRI; if the subject moves during the scanning, the…

A team of physicians and laboratory scientists has taken a key step toward a cure for sickle cell disease, using CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to fix the mutated gene responsible for the disease in stem cells from the blood of affected patients.

A unique new imaging method, called "polarized nuclear imaging" - combining powerful aspects of both magnetic resonance imaging and gamma-ray imaging and developed by two physicists in the University of Virginia's departments of Physics and Radiology -- has potential for new types of…

Vitamins A and C aren't just good for your health, they affect your DNA too. Researchers have discovered how vitamins A and C act to modify the epigenetic 'memory' held by cells; insight which is significant for regenerative medicine and our ability to reprogram cells from one identity to another.

People who regularly smoke large amounts of cannabis have reduced bone density and are more prone to fractures, research has found. The study also found that heavy cannabis users have a lower body weight and a reduced body mass index (BMI), which could contribute to thinning of their bones.

Not everyone who strives to navigate the internet without being tracked is up to no good. This is the underlying premise of a qualitative study led by researchers who gathered the stories of people working on collaborative projects online -- like editing Wikipedia -- and are concerned about their…

Researchers have confirmed that mutation-caused dysfunction in a process cells use to transport molecules within the cell plays a previously suspected but underappreciated role in promoting the heritable form of Alzheimer's disease, but also one that might be remedied with existing therapeutic…

American adults with some form of musculoskeletal pain are more likely to use complementary health approaches than people without one of these pain disorders, according to recent data from the National Health Interview Survey.
