Counting Rays: Aerial Surveys Reveal Ample Populations in Southeast Florida
Florida Atlantic University

A unique long-term study quantified the abundance of whitespotted eagle and giant manta rays in Southeast Florida. Researchers conducted 120 survey flights between 2014 and 2021 from Miami north to the Jupiter Inlet. One or both species were seen on nearly every flight and both populations appear to be stable in the region. The giant manta rays were more abundant in the south and the whitespotted eagle rays were found all along the coast. Neither species seems to be deterred by the greater human population density in Fort Lauderdale/ Miami.

AI Finds Key Signs That Predict Patient Survival Across Dementia Types
Mount Sinai Health System

Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and others have harnessed the power of machine learning to identify key predictors of mortality in dementia patients. The study, published in the February 28 online issue of Communications Medicine, addresses critical challenges in dementia care by pinpointing patients at high risk of near-term death and uncovers the factors that drive this risk. Unlike previous studies that focused on diagnosing dementia, this research delves into predicting patient prognosis, shedding light on mortality risks and contributing factors in various kinds of dementia.

Scientific Project Lomonosov

RUDN University doctors compared the classic approach to surgical treatment of recurrent intervertebral hernia with a modified one. The traditional technique is the simple removal of the intervertebral disc; in the modified surgery, the vertebrae are united together afterward. The first option is cheaper, but the second eliminates the risk of relapse.
