High Sensitivity TnT: Only Modest Benefit in Assessing Chest Pain

In a first-of-kind trial in Australia researchers used a high-sensitivity troponin assay to assess chest pain within routine emergency-department care. Heartwire from Medscape

Research on the effect of nerve cell stiffness on sensitivity to touch could lead to new painkillers

For many patients with chronic pain, any light touch - even just their clothes touching their skin - can be agony. Scientists at EMBL and the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN)...

Sensitivity attributable to pain found transferable to other mice

Hemispheric speech lateralisation in the developing brain is related to motor praxis ability.

Commonly displayed functional asymmetries such as hand dominance and hemispheric speech lateralisation are well researched in adults. However there is debate about when such functions become lateralis...

Combined glutamate and glutamine levels in pain-processing brain regions are associated with individual pain sensitivity.

The relationship between glutamate and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels in the living human brain and pain sensitivity is unknown. Combined glutamine/glutamate (Glx), as well as GABA levels can be m...
