A new study indicates that US doctors appear to have reached an unexpected consensus about which anti-seizure medicine to prescribe to their pediatric patients. Although cannabis had been used for many centuries for treatment of seizure disorders, medical use became prohibited in the 20th century.science dailyscience daily

Although the study will not conclude for another ten years, people won’t have to wait a decade to see some results from the study. For over 10 years, scientists have told us that action video game players exhibit better visual attention, motor control abilities and short-term memory.

Researchers have come up with a new approach to network monitoring that provides great flexibility in data collection while keeping both the circuit complexity of the router and the number of external analytic servers low. In people with …

Science News For Students

Last week, a huge scandal rocked the Tunisian and Arab scientific and educational world: a PhD student submitted a thesis declaring Earth to be flat, unmoving, young (only 13,500 years of age), and the centre of the universe. But perhaps this mania for the discovery of particles that need to be produced in colliders to be identified, as they cannot be found elsewhere in the real Universe, is an open-ended search that could produce an untold number of new particles that can exist temporarily in colliders and maybe exist elsewhere.

The sensors will not only report data back to laboratories, often in real time, but be able to respond to changes in the lake environment. A year-long shutdown of the LHC for safety retrofits including more tinkering with weak magnets, has been delayed again, now for 3 months more, so as not to stop the LHC before Spring 2013.

Science Daily is an American website that aggregates press releases and publishes lightly edited press releases (a practice called churnalism ) about science, similar to and EurekAlert! ScienceDaily in Apple’s News app is also not showing the latest news. We don’t use a convoluted mathematical or artificial intelligence model, but instead have regular people representing the broad spectrum of Americans blindly rate the bias of articles. Researchers in Bonn have developed a method of culturing an indefinite supply of replacement neural stem cells – including the cells that fail in Parkinson’s – from a single embryonic source.

The potent anti-infective capability Stratatech has engineered in our living human skin substitute can be an important tool in improving skin-injury patient outcomes, and reducing the incidence and expense of hospital-acquired infections. University of Maryland researchers have taken mice and knocked out PKCI/HINT1 genes – resulting in mice that do not get depressed …

Dr. Gu’s Work Featured on Science Daily and News & Observer. When curcumin was given to experimental animals before the induction of colitis, there was reduced NFkB activation and less visible damage to the colon.39 This effect was accompanied by reduced activity of several enzymes involved in inflammation in the gut.

Ginger extracts exert anti-inflammatory activity and stimulate cancer cell death by inhibiting NFkB.90-92 Ginger reduces expression of the key inflammatory enzymes COX-1 and COX-2.93 Topical application of ginger extract inhibits skin inflammation in a mouse model92 by inhibiting NFkB.91 A ginger extract was shown to enhance tumor cell death and down-regulate production of tumor invasion factors by preventing activation of NFkB.90.science daily

Last Sunday’s program with Dr. Jennifer Shaw from the OSU Department of Integrative Biology, was about how we might learn something about our own body chemistry by studying some amazing fish from Mexico. It was Robert Hooke, four centuries ago, who first described the scientific method in this way, as a sort of engine for directing the mind in the search after Philosophical Truths” By the 1700s, scientists had gained a bit more modesty; they admitted that their machine sometimes got things wrong.
