In the fight against super bacteria, University at Buffalo scientists are relying on strength in numbers to win the battle against drug resistance. A team of researchers found that combinations of three antibiotics - that are each ineffective against superbugs when used alone - are capable of eradicating two of the six ESKAPE pathogens when delivered together.

Now the journal Psychological Test and Assessment Modeling published the second part of the special issue on current methodological issues in educational large-scale assessments. [more...]
 

The German Trauma Society (DGU) is launching a new course format today for treating gunshot wounds and explosion injuries following a potential terror attack.

Wu took up painting seven years ago. At first, she was told she was terrible (painting on left). But, after years of practicing and taking courses, she was told she was talented (painting on the right). (Rachel Wu UC Riverside)
One day, our brains will not work the way they used to, we won't be as "sharp" as we once were, we won't be able to remember things as easily. This is what's been engrained in us. We're even led to believe that we can't learn new skills, or take in certain information such as language, past a certain age. But, a new theory holds that it doesn't have to be that way. In fact, as adults, if we continue to learn the way we did as children, UCR psychology professor Rachel Wu asserts, we can redefine what it means to be an "aging" adult. [more...]
 

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter – nowadays, good social networking and communication is more important than ever. The immune system also resembles a large social network, as shown by Felix Meissner and his team in the Experimental System Immunology Research Group at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried. With the help of proteomics they deciphered the messages exchanged between immune cells responsible for protecting us against diseases. In doing so, they have discovered complex cellular communication structures and previously unknown connections between various cell types. Their findings were published in the journal Nature Immunology. [more...]

A German study shows that the influence of gender on students’ academic achievement varies with social background. Hence, general statements regarding the educational success of boys or girls as such fall short. [more...]
 
Charismatic people captivate their followers, motivate and influence them. But what exactly is charisma? The old question about charisma is returning to the political scene, hand in hand with populism. Susan Reh and Prof. Niels Van Quaquebeke from KLU teamed up with Steffen R. Giessner from Erasmus University Rotterdam to provide new answers to the phenomenon of charisma in a recently published journal article. They say that charisma cannot be explained by rational arguments and social competency alone. Personal and environmental-specific signals such as size, color, temperature, and distance also determine whether or not a person is charismatic. [more...]
 

With electrodes, the Freiburg doctors stimulated a brain region that is involved in the perception of pleasure. It relieved symptoms of the depression in six of the eight patients (Medical Center – University of Freiburg)
Treatment with deep brain stimulation can provide lasting relief to patients suffering from previously non-treatable, severe forms of depression several years into the therapy or even eliminate symptoms entirely. This is the finding of the first long-term study on this form of therapy, conducted by scientists at the Medical Center – University of Freiburg. Seven of the eight patients receiving continuous stimulation in the study showed lasting improvements in their symptoms up to the last observation point four years into treatment. The therapy remained equally effective over the entire period. The scientists prevented minor side-effects from appearing by adjusting the stimulation. [more...]

A female brain's resident immune cells are more active in regions involved in pain processing relative to males, according to a recent study by Georgia State University researchers. The study, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, found that when microglia, the brain's resident immune cells, were blocked, female response to opioid pain medication improved and matched the levels of pain relief normally seen in males.
