Nerve stimulation in sleep apnea less effective for people with higher BMI – study

Researchers have discovered a blood protein that could help detect which children will experience ongoing concussion symptoms more than two weeks after an injury.

For the study, blood samples were collected from children, aged five-18 years, who presented to the emergency department at The Royal Children’s Hospital less than 48 hours after a concussion.

A team of scientists have utilised lab-grown human brain structures known as organoids to offer insights into why traumatic brain injuries (TBI) quadruple the risk of developing dementia, and increase chances of developing neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS. For the study, published in Cell Stem Cell, USC scientists used human patient-derived stem cells to grow rudimentary brain structures known as organoids in the lab. They then injured these organoids with high-intensity ultrasound waves. The injured organoids showed some of the same features seen in TBI patients, including nerve cell de ..read more
