Age Matters Behind the Wheel – but Not How You Might Expect

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A UCLA study explored the relationship between new drivers' skills to age, gender and playing organized sports or video games. The results suggest all novice drivers should undergo mandatory training, not just teenagers. Age: Among males, the older the student, the worse his driving skills score.

Study Shows Need for Early Support Among People with Uveal Melanoma

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers found that nearly all people diagnosed with uveal melanoma had a number of unmet psychological and health information needs, particularly during the first three months after their diagnoses. The study is the first prospective, longitudinal approach to examine supportive care needs among patients with this disease, and suggested more acute needs among people with uveal melanoma than people with other cancers.

UCLA Scientists Use Color-Coded Tags to Discover How Heart Cells Develop

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers used fluorescent colored proteins to trace how cardiomyocytes — cells in heart muscle that enable it to pump blood — are produced in mouse embryos. The findings could eventually lead to methods for regenerating heart tissue in human adults.

Public Health Dentists Offer Recommendations to Better Integrate Oral Health and Primary Care

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

In practice, policy and education, oral health care and primary health care have traditionally been considered separate. In an effort to change that, a group of public health dentists has issued recommendations on improving the integration of the two with a goal to influence policymakers, clinicians, educators and health researchers.

OCD Treatment Could Someday Start with a Brain Scan

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers have developed a way to use brain scans and machine learning — a form of artificial intelligence — to predict whether people with OCD will benefit from cognitive behavior therapy. The technique could help improve the overall success rate of cognitive behavioral therapy, and it could enable therapists to tailor treatment to each patient.

Research Uncovers Gene Network That Regulates Motor Neuron Formation During Embryonic Development

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers have discovered the inner workings of a gene network that regulates the development of spinal motor neurons in the growing chicken and mouse embryo. The research also answers a long-standing question about why motor neurons, the nerve cells of the spinal cord that control muscle movement, form much faster than other types of neurons.

With $3.1m Grant From NIH, UCLA Scientists to Advance Adoption of Focal Therapy to Treat Prostate Cancer

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers Dr. Leonard Marks and Shyam Natarajan will lead a $3.1 million research project grant awarded by the National Institutes of Health to advance the adoption of a promising new technology to treat men with prostate cancer. By helping to increase the widespread use of the technique, known as MRI-guided focal laser ablation, the research has the potential to vastly improve treatment options and outcomes for patients with the disease.
