Researchers decode molecular mechanism that sheds light on how trauma can become engraved in the brain

Researchers decode molecular mechanism that sheds light on how trauma can become engraved in the brain | Health Studies Updates | Scoop.it

Scientists at the Universities of Bonn and Berlin have discovered a mechanism which stops the process of forgetting anxiety after a stress event. In experiments they showed that feelings of anxiety don’t subside if too little dynorphin is released into the brain. The results can help open up new paths in the treatment of trauma patients. The study has been published in the current edition of the Journal of Neuroscience.

Your Brain Scan Looks Different on Mac and PC

Your Brain Scan Looks Different on Mac and PC | Health Studies Updates | Scoop.it
Science and medicine are supposedly based on rigor—a rigor where theories are only correct if you can replicate results.

A team of German researchers found that the software used to analyze medical images of your brain gives wildly different answers if it's run on Mac or PC.  Scary!!
