Discovered a protein that improves the mental ability of a personThe discovery made by American researchers of the brain from new Jersey, opens new horizons in the creation of products that will improve human mental abilities, including memory. Scientists have found that a recently discovered protein stimulates the development of dendrites - endings of nerve cells and promotes the contact of these cells with each other. Activity open in 1999 protein saipina in the brain has been established only recently. In the study, which was carried out by specialists of Rutgers University, it was shown that in neurons of the hippocampus, which plays an important role in memory processes, saipin stimulates the growth of dendrites and the organization of connections between nerve cells. Scientists say that by opening up the opportunity to create a drug that will mimic the action saipina on the brain, or, at least, amplify it, and will help to deal with memory disorders. "Detection saipina and opening mechanism of his work opens new perspectives in the treatment of severe neurological diseases," said the author is Professor Bonnie Firestein. Читать полностью -->

Americans have learned how to identify pain in schizophrenics

Americans have learned how to identify pain in schizophrenicsAmerican scientists from Gradskova University have developed a method of assessing the effectiveness of drug treatment of schizophrenia. A group of researchers under the leadership of Robert Mackarel (Robert W. McCarley) found that symptoms of schizophrenia are associated with large changes in wave activity of the brain. And with the normalization of the EEG readings and improves the clinical picture. The study involved 20 healthy volunteers and the same number of patients with schizophrenia people. All participants of the experiment, the researchers were asked to look at the pictures, which depicts a cut out circles with a segment action figures, like the character of the old computer game "PAC-man".

General practitioners in the cities cannot replace the pediatrician or other narrow specialist - this is a huge step backwards," said Roshal, which in London is taking part in the forum of European leaders. "In the cities to break the current structure of medical care is not justified nor economic, nor social, nor from a medical point of view," said the doctor. Thus, according to him, in remote areas and rural areas, the practice of implementing General practitioners can be successful. "If children are few, if any, patients are few and there is no sense to keep many narrow specialists , here there and need to plant General practitioners," said the doctor.
