    Researchers have found that current or past use of methamphetamine or other stimulants may lead to psychomotor control deficits, or a reduced ability to control physical movement.Study participants were asked to hold their dominant arm in various positions, one at a time, and maintain each position for 60 seconds, with a 30-second rest between each. Investigators found impairments in terms of both tremor and arm-droop in heavy stimulant users. Tremor, but not arm-droop, persisted for at least...

    Quality of life after prostate cancer treatment varies by the type of treatment patients receive, a new study reveals.In the study of 5727 patients, sexual function declined with all treatment modalities, with the steepest decline after surgery. Open surgery to remove the prostate was linked with more decline than robotic surgery. Robotic surgery patients experienced a higher return of sexual function, approaching that of patients who received brachytherapy (radioactive implants) and radiation...

    Clinicians recently used 3D printing to help treat a woman with a degenerative condition of the spinal column.Standard spinal cord stimulation could not be performed on the patient due to her spinal anatomy. By using 3D printing techniques to create a model of the patient's lower spine, the investigators were able to find a way to successfully insert a catheter to achieve spinal cord stimulation.“3D printing may provide additional information to improve the likelihood of access when anatomy is...

    New research may be useful for protecting against the toxic effects of snake venom.Investigators have identified the specific protein that’s targeted by snake venom and causes cells to detach from each other and induce internal bleeding. The team also noted that animals resistant to snake venom—such as opossums, hedgehogs, and camels—have a variation of this protein that may help protect them.“We hope this study contributes to protecting against snake venom toxicity and elucidating the...

    A “self-heating” boron catalyst that makes particularly efficient use of sunlight to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) serves as a light harvester, photothermal converter, hydrogen generator, and catalyst in one. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers introduce a photothermocatalytic reaction that requires no additives beyond water. This could form the basis of a new, more efficient process for converting the greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful carbon source for the production of fuels and...

    The earliest autism intervention study in the world that uses video to provide feedback to parents of babies at family risk of autism, has indicated a reduction in the severity of emerging signs of autism. This study, published today in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, is the first of its kind to work with babies in their first year of life who have a sibling with autism and are therefore at higher risk of developing the condition.Previous research has found that the earliest...
