NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Young female soccer players may get more concussions than their high school and college counterparts, and many of them continue to play while they have symptoms, according to a new study. Concussions can result in memory loss and problems with concentration and reaction time. The effects are worse when an athlete suffers a second concussion before fully recovering from the first. U.S. high school soccer players get about 50,000 concussions each year, but no one’s been keeping track of concussions among younger girls, researchers said. They found 13 percent...

Using fear-conditioned mice, researchers found they could essentially wipe out a fear response to distant memory by stimulating expression of genes that open a window of opportunity for learning in the brain’s hippocampus, a region crucial for memory processing and consolidation. The mice didn’t just “forget” their conditioned fear in this double-barreled approach. Neurons associated with memory were physically altered and appeared healthier and more active, according to the study published online Thursday in the journal Cell. “We can see that this treatment can markedly...

LONDON (Reuters) – Having an unusual personality structure could be the secret to making other people laugh, scientists said on Thursday after research showed that comedians have high levels of psychotic personality traits. In a study in the British Journal of Psychiatry, researchers analyzed comedians from Australia, Britain and the United States and found they scored significantly higher on four types of psychotic characteristics compared to a control group of people who had non-creative jobs. The traits included a tendency towards impulsive or anti-social behavior, and a tendency to avoid...

A young albino rat is separated from its litter and placed in a litter of black-hooded rats. Until it reaches adulthood, the albino rat will interact exclusively with a black-caped mother and littermates. If the rat has the opportunity to help another rat, will it prefer helping someone from its own strain, or someone from the strain in which it was fostered? Research from the University of Chicago shows rats will choose the latter. The peer-reviewed study argues that rats choose whom to help based on social experiences rather than genetics. The research, published in the open...
