Artificial spine breaks down the myths

Artificial spine breaks down the mythsDeveloped the first model of the human spine, which challenges our notions about the causes of back pain. Contrary to the idea that back injury is caused by the alternation of compression, bending, tension and other forces, three-dimensional animation model suggests that the main cause of injuries is rapid twisting of the spine, causing the connective tissue between the vertebrae to rotate. Nick Begley and Vladimir Ivancevic from the Organization of Science and Technology in Edinburgh (Australia) developed 18 months of a mathematical model, called a Full analogue of the Spine (FSS). A previously developed model of the spine was assessed forces aimed at a single connection or a simple combination of connections between the vertebrae, so allow us to estimate only a few degrees of freedom. But FSS represents all 25 of the movable joints of the spine, and allows six degrees of freedom. FSS also takes into account the presence of soft tissue, and simulates the path along which the body moves independently to stabilize during strong bending of the back or in response to an attack.

Sperm are smarter than previously thought

Sperm are smarter than previously thoughtSperm are smarter than previously thought Human sperm, it turns out, have the beginnings of memory. Anyway, how did you manage to install Peter Brugger (Peter Brugger, a neuroscientist, medical center of the University of Zurich (Zurich University Hospital), once the sperm is turned in one direction, then the next time they possibly rotated in the opposite direction. This behavior is called spontaneous alternation, and it is observed in many living beings. To check whether this cell human sperm, Brugger was observed behavior 714 healthy sperm in the T-shaped channel. As expected, one half of these sperm turned left, the other right. However, in the labyrinth, where the T-shaped fork was preceded by a turn to the right, 58% of the sperm in the end turned left. Читать полностью -->

"Hong Kong virus was a relative of the Guinea-pig

German researchers from Frankfurt University (Frankfurt University) identified the same virus in two patients with atypical pneumonia, the Associated Press reports. These patients were Singaporean doctor placed in infectious insulator after it was removed from flying from the US aircraft, and his mother-in-law. Possible dangerous pathogen infection belongs to the family of paramyxoviruses, which includes the viruses of measles, mumps and distemper dogs. Laboratories around the world are trying to find the same virus in the blood of the other infected to refute or confirm the hypothesis of the Germans. "It is too early to draw final conclusions. Dramatically changing the course of treatment of patients with this disease, you can only hurt," said one of the leaders who David Heymann Heymann. Читать полностью -->
