Gene that causes aggression in men under stress discovered

news-medical.net — “Scientists have found that “macho” gene that makes men behave more aggressively than women under stress. They say this one gene could explain why men have a 'fight or flight' response while women are more likely to try and defuse the situation. The study has been published in the journal BioEssays.View full resource at news-medical.net

Study first to link mitochondrial dysfunction and alpha-Synuclein multiplication in human fibroblasts

sciencedaily.com — “A new study shows for the first time the effects of alpha-Synuclein gene multiplication on mitochondrial function and susceptibility to oxidative stress in human tissue. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been frequently implicated in the neurodegenerative process that underlies Parkinson's disease, but the basis for this has not been fully understood.View full resource at sciencedaily.com

Study Links Welding Fumes to Brain Damage | FairWarning

fairwarning.org — “The manganese in fumes from welding may cause neurological damage similar to what is found in the brains of people suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis evaluated brain scans of 20 welders with an average of 30,000 hours of lifetime welding exposure, and compared the findings [...]View full resource at fairwarning.org

Journal of Neurology 256(4):530-8 Background: Transcranial duplex scanning (TCD) of the substantia nigra (SN) is increasingly used to diagnose Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease (IPD). Up until now 70 diagnostic studies have been published, not only on investigation of the SN, but also of the lenticular nucleus (LN) and the Raphe nucleiView full resource at library.nhs.uk
