Spanish researchers have analysed the effect of endurance running training on the stiffness index, a variable that is directly related to bone quality. The results confirm that the greater the race distance that is trained, the better this can be used, therefore, to prevent the progressive decline in bone mineral density that occurs with age. In healthy individuals, bone quality -chiefly determined by bone mineral density- depends on factors such as sex, a ...

A breath of fresh air: Drexel scientists reveal how the brain generates respir...
Bringing a steady supply of fresh air to the lungs can seem like a simple task, but breathing is a careful orchestration of brain and body. Diseases like Rett syndrome, central sleep apnea and congenital central hypoventilation syndrome are characterized by breathing difficulties that may be caused by dysfunction in the brain s breathing center. Now, Drexel scientists have introduced a new concept of how the brain is involved in this essential function, pr ...
