In a new, rare study of direct brain recordings in children and adolescents, a Northwestern Medicine scientist and colleagues from Wayne State University have discovered as brains mature, the precise ways by which two key memory regions in the brain communicate make us better at forming lasting memories. The findings also suggest how brains learn to multitask with age. Historically, a lack of high-resolution data from children’s brains have led to gaps in our understanding of how the developing brain forms memories. The study innovated the use of intracranial electroencephalogram (iEEG) on pediatric patients to examine how brain development supports memory development.

The current trend of using two cannulas to place most newborns in respiratory failure on life-sustaining ECMO, one in the right internal jugular vein and a second in the right common carotid artery, rather than a single cannula in the right internal jugular, increases mortality rates for these babies, investigators report.

Researchers show the importance of using machine learning for estimating both market reward and risk. When machine learning models are employed for forecasting monthly returns and volatilities with macroeconomic data, the resulting optimal portfolios generate significantly higher risk-adjusted returns of, on average, up to 28%.
