What will shape voter attitudes heading into the 2020 election? New Iowa State University research finds rurality, education and race -- not the economic downturn -- significantly predicted the change from Democrat to Republican in 2016.
Study found more than half of older adults with end-stage kidney disease died within a year of starting dialysis. Nearly one in four older dialysis patients (23%) succumbed to the disease within a month of starting treatment. Analysis reveals markedly higher death rates than previous reports of dialysis outcomes among older patients. Findings can help patients and clinicians make better-informed decisions to determine optimal course of treatment.
Transgender adults were more likely to report worse health-related quality of life compared with cisgender adults. This study used data from a large national health survey with an optional sexual orientation and gender identity module, which 36 US states and territories used at least once from 2014 through 2017.
The largest study of bisexual people in the world to date, led by La Trobe University, has examined why bisexual people experience higher rates of psychological distress than heterosexual and homosexual people.
Incremental physical activity, even at light intensity, is associated with larger brain volume and healthy brain aging.
More than a quarter of children with autism spectrum disorder are also diagnosed with disruptive behavior disorders. For the first time, Yale researchers have identified a possible biological cause: a key mechanism that regulates emotion functions differently in the brains of the children who exhibit disruptive behavior.
Massachusetts General Hospital investigators have discovered the mechanism by which cells sense dysfunction of the proteasome -- a cellular component that degrades unneeded or defective proteins -- and respond in a previously undescribed manner, by editing the amino acid sequence of a key sensing protein.
Economic stagnation and a resurgence of racist nationalism are shaping conversations about what it means to be Italian in the 21st century.
A traumatic brain injury happens in an instant: a battlefield blast, a car crash, a bad fall. But the effects can last a lifetime -- and can leave the survivor dependent on daily care from their loved ones for decades. Now, a new tool seeks to give a voice to those caregivers, who spend countless hours tending to the daily needs of family members whose moods, thinking and abilities seemed to change overnight.
Society's expectations about gender roles alter the human brain at the cellular level, according to a paper published by a group of neuroscience researchers at Georgia State University.
