New HHMI research reveals how three proteins help brain cells synchronize the release of chemical signals. A similar interaction may play a role in how cells secrete insulin and airway mucus, too.

Penn Study Shows Modified Blood Thinner Reduces the Impact of Traumatic Brain Injury in Mice

A chemically modified version of the common blood thinner heparin may be the first promising method of preventing the harmful cascade of destruction to brain tissue that commonly follows traumatic brain injury (TBI), according to new research findings. Though there is currently no drug therapy to prevent the repercussions that can occur in the days and weeks after TBI, researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania showed that mice treated with a modified version of heparin with very low coagulant activity (known as 2-O, 3-O desulfated heparin, ODSH or CX-01) had less brain swelling and inflammation, and less evidence of brain damage, compared to mice that received saline.

Systems Analysis Points to Links Between Toxoplasma Infection and Common Brain Diseases

Nearly one out of every three humans on earth has a lifelong infection with the brain-dwelling parasite Toxoplasma gondii. In the September 13 issue of Scientific Reports, researchers from multiple institutions describe efforts to learn how infection with the parasite Toxoplasma gondii may alter, and in some cases amplify, several brain disorders, including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases as well as some cancers.

Targeting Risk Factors May Prevent Dementia, According to Lancet Commission

brain_2_pyramid.jpg

Dementia can potentially be prevented by targeting specific risk factors like education in early life, hearing in midlife, and smoking later in life, according to newly published research by the Lancet Commission on Dementia Prevention, Intervention, and Care. The commission, of which Johns Hopkins School of Nursing(JHSON) faculty member Laura N. Gitlin, PhD, was a member, compiled current research and emerging knowledge about dementia to develop an analysis and plan for moving forward in care.

E-Mental Health Tool May Be Key for Astronauts to Cope with Anxiety, Depression in Space

GonzalezAdam17.jpg

A clinical trial of an innovative e-mental health tool led by a Stony Brook University psychiatry professor to help address stress, anxiety and/or depression will begin on September 18. The trial is designed to inform the delivery of mental health treatments for astronauts on long duration space missions.

Exposure to Head Impacts in Youth Football Practice Drills

Table1.jpg

Researchers examined differences in the number, location, and magnitude of head impacts sustained by young athletes during various youth football practice drills. Such information could lead to recommendations for football practices, including modification of some high-intensity drills in order to reduce players’ exposure to head impacts and, consequently, lessen the risks of injury.
