Astronauts Experience Decrease in Blood Vessel Function During Spaceflight, Study Finds

A Kansas State University kinesiology study has found that astronauts aboard the International Space Station have decreased physical fitness because of a decrease in the way oxygen moves through the body.

Border Fences Reduce Risk of Transnational Terrorist Attacks, Other Effects Unclear

A new study led by a University of Kansas researcher has found border fences do reduce the risk of a transnational terrorist attack, though the research leaves open questions about other types of factors. The researchers also did not examine whether fences influence immigration.

Garden-Enhanced Intervention Improved BMI and Nutrition Knowledge of California Students

The factors that affect rates of childhood obesity are complex. For example, parent feeding practices have been shown to be influential, but that influence has also been shown to change with age. Factors such as access to fruits and vegetables and the availability of safe space for physical exercise have also been associated with a risk for obesity. Because schools can act as a focal point for engaging students, families, educators, administrators, and community members, researchers implemented and evaluated a multicomponent, school-based nutrition intervention in an attempt to improve children's dietary behaviors and prevent childhood obesity. Their results are published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

Underlying Molecular Mechanism of Bipolar Disorder Revealed

An international collaborative study led by researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP), with major participation from Yokohama School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and UC San Diego, has identified the molecular mechanism behind lithium’s effectiveness in treating bipolar disorder patients. The study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), utilized human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPS cells) to map lithium’s response pathway, enabling the larger pathogenesis of bipolar disorder to be identified.
