Holographic Images Increase Accuracy of External Ventricular Drain Insertion

Journal of Neurosurgery

Researchers from Beijing have developed a new technique of external ventricular drain (EVD) insertion that involves the use of a mixed-reality holographic computer headset. Wearing this headset, the neurosurgeon can visualize holographic images of individual patients’ brain structures while performing the procedure. This makes EVD insertion more accurate than the usual freehand technique, which relies only on referral to external anatomical landmarks.

How Animals Use Their Tails to Swish and Swat Away Insects

Georgia Institute of Technology

A new study shows how animals use their tails to keep mosquitoes at bay by combining a swish that blows away most of the biting bugs and a swat that kills the ones that get through.

Marker May Help Target Treatments for Crohn’s Patients

Cornell University

Crohn’s disease (CD), a chronic inflammatory condition of the intestinal tract, has emerged as a global disease, with rates steadily increasing over the last 50 years. Experts have long suspected that CD likely represents a collection of related but slightly different disorders, but until now it has not been possible to predict accurately which subtype of CD a patient is likely to develop. In a study published Oct. 4 in the journal JCI Insight, Cornell University and University of North Carolina researchers report they have pinpointed a single molecule – microRNA-31 (miR-31) – the levels of which predict whether a patient has subtype 1 or subtype 2 of the disease.

Us vs. Them: Understanding the Neurobiology of Stereotypes

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

In a review published in the journal Trends in Cognitive Science, Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD, and colleagues describe how non-invasive brain stimulation – a technique he and others have pioneered to unlock the secrets of the brain – could shed light on the neurobiology underlying implicit bias.

HIV-Positive Infants Are at High Risk for Acquiring Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection

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

FINDINGS Infants born to HIV-positive mothers had high rates of congenital cytomegalovirus, or CMV. Infants who also were infected before birth by the virus that causes AIDS were especially prone to CMV infection. The researchers found that 23 percent of the infants who became infected with HIV during the mother’s pregnancy also were infected with CMV; 18 percent who were infected with HIV either during pregnancy or birth acquired congenital CMV; and 4.
