Why your brain tires when exercising

Why your brain tires when exercising | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

A marathon runner approaches the finishing line, but suddenly the sweaty athlete collapses to the ground. Everyone probably assumes that this is because he has expended all energy in his muscles. What few people know is that it might also be a braking mechanism in the brain which swings into effect and makes us too tired to continue. What may be occurring is what is referred to as 'central fatigue'.

International Consortium Builds ‘Google Map’ of Human Metabolism

International Consortium Builds ‘Google Map’ of Human Metabolism | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Building on earlier pioneering work by researchers at the University of California, San Diego, an international consortium of university researchers has produced the most comprehensive virtual reconstruction of human metabolism to date. Scientists could use the model, known as Recon 2, to identify causes of and new treatments for diseases like cancer, diabetes and even psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. Each person’s metabolism, which represents the conversion of food sources into energy and the assembly of molecules, is determined by genetics, environment and nutrition.

 

Doctors have long recognized the importance of metabolic imbalances as an underlying cause of disease, but scientists have been ramping up their research on the connection as a result of compelling evidence enabled by the Human Genome Project and advances in systems biology, which leverages the power of high-powered computing to build vast interactive databases of biological information.

 

“Recon 2 allows biomedical researchers to study the human metabolic network with more precision than was ever previously possible. This is essential to understanding where and how specific metabolic pathways go off track to create disease,” said Bernhard Palsson, Galletti Professor of Bioengineering at UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.

 

“It’s like having the coordinates of all the cars in town, but no street map. Without this tool, we don’t know why people are moving the way they are,” said Palsson. He likened Recon 2 to Google mapping for its ability to merge complex details into a single, interactive map. For example, researchers looking at how metabolism sets the stage for cancerous tumor growth could zoom in on the “map” for finely detailed images of individual metabolic reactions or zoom out to look at patterns and relationships among pathways or different sectors of metabolism. This is not unlike how you can get a street view of a single house or zoom out to see how the house fits into the whole neighborhood, city, state, country and globe.  And just as Google maps brings together a broad set of data – such as images, addresses, streets and traffic flow – into an easily navigated tool, Recon 2 pulls together a vast compendium of data from published literature and existing models of metabolic processes.

 

Recon 2 is already proving its utility, according to Ines Thiele, a professor at the University of Iceland and UC San Diego alumna, who led the Recon 2 effort. Thiele earned her Ph.D. in bioinformatics as a student of Palsson’s and was part of the original Recon 1 team.

 

Thiele said Recon 2 has successfully predicted alterations in metabolism that are currently used to diagnose certain inherited metabolic diseases.

“The use of this foundational resource will undoubtedly lead to a myriad of exciting predictions that will accelerate the translation of basic experimental results into clinical applications,” said Thiele. “Ultimately, I envision it being used to personalize diagnosis and treatment to meet the needs of individual patients. In the future, this capability could enable doctors to develop virtual models of their patients’ individual metabolic networks and identify the most efficacious treatment for various diseases including diabetes, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.”

 

As much as Recon 2 marks a significant improvement over Recon 1, there is still much work to be done, according to the research team. Thiele said Recon 2 accounts for almost 1,800 genes of an estimated 20,000 protein-coding genes in the human genome. “Clearly, further community effort t will be required to capture chemical interactions with and between the rest of the genome,” she said.

The New Medical Assistant: Studies Assess iPads in Medicine

The New Medical Assistant: Studies Assess iPads in Medicine | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

The results of both classroom and practice-based studies are proving the iPad to be a valuable resource in medicine.

 

St. Mary’s Health Care System purchased iPads and loaned them to third-year medical clerkship students from the Georgia Health Sciences University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership (GHSU/UGA) campus and are collaborating with the University of Georgia’s College of Education on a yearlong study to see how iPads can be used in medical settings on a daily basis.

 

The study, which began in July of 2012, is set to conclude in June of 2013. Thus far, the study included eight faculty physician preceptors at St. Mary’s and 36 third-year medical students from GHSU/UGA.

 

“You can talk to your patient and educate them,” said Michelle Nuss, the campus associate dean for graduate medical education at GHSU/UGA. “The more the patient understands their disease, the more they’re going to be invested in getting better because they understand why it’s happening to them.”

 

Patient engagement in healthcare has been a big concern as the costs continue to skyrocket. The belief that patients taking an active role in their healthcare was a major contributing factor to the overhaul of Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement policy in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and will be put to the test as hospitals are measured on quality of care and outcomes, and paid accordingly.

 

“Showing patients their chest X-rays in real time and their lab results on the iPad, and I think engaging the patient more in their health care and making them more educated about their own problems, has been a big component of the study,” Nuss said.

 

Patients with better health literacy have been shown to make better decisions, and cost less than patients with low health literacy, so understanding the impact of educating the patient will be an equally important result of this study.

The study is unique, in that it tests not only the impact of mobile technology on delivery of healthcare, but also the impact it has on educating medical students in the classroom.
