The findings, which appear in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, provide preliminary support for the use of yoga-based

While Volkswagen has issued recalls of affected vehicles in both the U.S. and Europe, scientists at MIT and elsewhere have found the excess emissions has already had an impact on public health. The team previously estimated that the excess emissions generated by 482,000 affected vehicles sold in the U.S. will cause approximately 60 premature deaths

Insomnia affects between 10 and 35% of the population worldwide. Image credit: Flickr/Mateus Lunardi Dutra A new study published in Brain indicates that successful treatment for insomnia may not actually require complicated neurofeedback (direct training of brain functions). Rather, it appears patients who simply believe they’re getting neurofeedback training appear to get the same benefits.

The researchers’ findings suggest that DNA variations linked to Type 2 diabetes interfere with the ability of Regulatory Factor X to bind to a “runway” of DNA before the start of various genes, and therefore with its ability to do its job in the reading of those genes.Image credit: University of Michigan Why do some

A new study by researchers at King’s College London has found that patients with diabetes suffering from the early stages of kidney disease have a deficiency of the protective ‘anti-ageing’ hormone, Klotho. The study, published today in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes [EASD]), suggests that Klotho may play

New research suggests that a giant pterosaur — a toothless flying reptile with a 10 metre wingspan — may have been the dominant predator in ancient Romania. Palaeontologists examined the creature’s unusual gigantic neck vertebra and believe it was a formidable carnivore and major predator that terrorised dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals of Cretaceous-age Transylvania.

The team demonstrated the first prolonged operation of electronics in the harsh conditions found

Tiny though it is, the Heydari lab’s radiator chip boasts the highest power and efficiency of any device in its class, according to its creators.Credit: Steve Zylius / UCI Your doctor waves a hand-held scanner over your body and gets detailed, high-resolution images of your internal organs and tissues. Using the same device, the physician

Many unique human traits such as high cognition, cumulative culture and hyper-cooperation have evolved due to the social organisation patterns unique to humans.Image credit: Flickr/David Martinez Close friendships facilitate the exchange of information and culture, making social networks more effective for cultural transmission, according to new UCL research that used wireless tracking technology to map
