L-DOPA Is an Endogenous Ligand for OA1

submitted by: medtv
Albinism is a genetic defect characterized by a loss of pigmentation. The neurosensory retina, which is not pigmented, exhibits pathologic changes secondary to the loss of pigmentation in the retina pigment epithelium (RPE). How the loss of pigmentation in the RPE causes developmental defects in the adjacent neurosensory retina has not been determined, but offers a unique opportunity to investigate the interactions between these two important tissues. One of the genes that causes albinism...

Minimize Hypoglycemic Episodes Utilizing Remote Assistance via Mobile Phones

submitted by: syhon

My project involves researching on the versatile dynamics of hypoglycemia and how it can affect individuals differently. By doing so, I can identify specifications for an alarm device that can be tailored to each individual’s needs, so the device can warn the hypoglycemic individual before his or her glucose level falls below a certain threshold.

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Personal Information Database

submitted by: scivee-team

I intend to design a database that will encompass information from clinical data, genetic information, functional magnetic resonance information, and high-resolution anatomical functional for a sizable amount of patients. It will allow for easy access to this information, and a way to quickly add or edit information in the database.

Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging

submitted by: stein_institute

The next 25 years will witness the largest-ever increase in our elderly population, especially those living an active life. Yet research on successful aging has lagged behind that of age-related diseases. Although successful aging involves both mental and physical health, new research suggests that the critical component of successful aging is related to brain and mind. Dr. Dilip Jeste shares the latest research and reviews some evidence-based strategies for successful aging.

Structures of Massive Multiplayer Online Communities

submitted by: awman

Communities, such as guilds and groups, in massive multiplayer online worlds have been structured differently from one world to another. This research is to investigate the causes of the different community structures in online worlds and, specifically, how the design of the synthetic worlds shape the way players manage their communities.
