Dyslexic children do not detect stressed syllables well while listening to words

77443 Dyslexia is not only a problem related to reading; children with this difficulty also display impaired prosodic processing, in other words, they struggle to detect stressed syllables. A Spanish team of researchers has shown this feature to be lacking in dyslexia for the first time in Spanish (it has already been demonstrated in English)… Seguir Leyendo Dyslexic children do not detect stressed syllables well while listening to words

High-Protein Diets, Like the Popular Dr. Dukan Diet, Increase the Risk of Developing Kidney Disease in Rats, Study Suggests

69964 An experiment done in rats by scientists at the University of Granada, Spain, shows a high-protein diet increases the chance of developing kidney stones and other renal diseases. High-protein diets, like the popular Dr. Dukan diet, increase the long-term risk of developing kidney disease and have a negative effect on renal urinary and morphological… Seguir Leyendo High-Protein Diets, Like the Popular Dr. Dukan Diet, Increase the Risk of Developing Kidney Disease in Rats, Study Suggests

Scientists Discover New Mechanism That Preserves Genomic Integrity and Is Abnormal in the Rare DiGeorge Syndrome

67208 An international team of scientists — including researchers at GENYO, the Centre for Genomics and Oncological Research (Pfizer-University of Granada- Andalusian Regional Government) — has described a molecular mechanism that facilitates the defence of the human genome against “bombarding” by mobile DNA sequences. Abnormalities in the mechanism could be responsible for some symptoms of… Seguir Leyendo Scientists Discover New Mechanism That Preserves Genomic Integrity and Is Abnormal in the Rare DiGeorge Syndrome

Melatonin Helps Control Weight Gain as It Stimulates the Appearance of ‘beige Fat’ That Can Burn Calories Instead of Storing Them, Study Suggests

67310 Spanish scientists have discovered that melatonin consumption helps control weight gain because it stimulates the appearance of ‘beige fat’, a type of fat cell that burns calories in vivo instead of storing them. White adipose tissue stores calories leading to weight gain whereas ‘beige fat’ (also known as ‘good or thinning fat’) helps regulate… Seguir Leyendo Melatonin Helps Control Weight Gain as It Stimulates the Appearance of ‘beige Fat’ That Can Burn Calories Instead of Storing Them, Study Suggests

Exercising During Pregnancy Reduces the Risk of High Birth Weight Newborns and of Caesarean Delivery, Study Suggests

65951 Researchers have found that moderate-intensity exercise three times a week during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy halves the risk of having a newborn baby with macrosomia (weighing over 4 kilos). Taking moderate-intensity exercise three times a week during the second and third trimester of pregnancy halves the risk of having a high birth… Seguir Leyendo Exercising During Pregnancy Reduces the Risk of High Birth Weight Newborns and of Caesarean Delivery, Study Suggests

Potential Disease-Transmission Sources in Animals ID’d by Calculating Risk Using Social Network Mathematics

64574 Spanish and US scientists have successfully identified animal species that can transmit more diseases to humans by using mathematical tools similar to those applied to the study of social networks like Facebook or Twitter. Their research — recently published in the journal PNAS — describes how parasite-primate interactions transmit diseases like malaria, yellow fever… Seguir Leyendo Potential Disease-Transmission Sources in Animals ID’d by Calculating Risk Using Social Network Mathematics
