Researchers Identify New Genes Linked With Schizophrenia Risk in First-of-Its-Kind Study

Researchers have made an important discovery about the causes of schizophrenia, a disease related to dementia or fragmented mentality.   Researchers have identified two genes associated with the disease as well as a third gene that carries the risk of schizophrenia and autism. Scientists involved in this research believes, this discovery can go a long way in finding a cure for these kind of diseases. Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine found that these harmful genes are almost the same in every ethnic or racial group. The findings of this research were published in Nature Genetics . According to an estimate, about one percent of people worldwide suffering from schizophrenia. The scientists identified two risky genes, SRRM2 and AKAP11, based on a comparative analysis of gene sequencing from individuals with schizophrenia and healthy individuals. It compared a dataset of 35,828 patients with schizophrenia to 107,877 healthy or control groups and included a variety of

United Arab Emirates's Hope Mission Discovers Mysterious Polar Light on Mars

The Hope Mission of the United Arab Emirates's Mars mission has captured stunning images of the mysterious polar flame on Mars.  This discovery could reveal many secrets between the Martian atmosphere, its magnetic field and the solar wind. Polar lights are floating light waves. This is the kind of light that has been seen at the Earth's North Pole for thousands of years. This light is visible on a planet when the movements of the planet affect the atmosphere there. A recent observation from the Emirates Mars mission has never been seen before. This is called the Sinus Discrete Aurora (SDA). It is a giant aurora that covers more than half the area on Mars.

The Use of Energy for Physical and Mental Development Depends on Genes in Our Body

Perhaps you will be surprised sometimes by the fact that the same type of food is good for someone's health while someone looks weak. But now this mystery has been solved. Researchers from the University of Helsinki reported that even minor genetic variation affects the use of energy from different nutrients. This research was published in the journal Nature Communications . Through this study, it has emerged that how nutrition plans based on genetic data can be designed for a healthy life in an individual. An international team of researchers from Australia, Denmark and Finland has investigated that how people in the same population survive on different diets. For this study, the researchers used a genetic reference panel of about 200 fruit fly (Drosophila Melanogaster) strains. These flies were given six types of diet, which was high in a mixture of protein, sugar, starch, coconut oil and fat. This analysis found that there was a difference in the use of energy deriv

The Most Distant Galaxy Ever Discovered by An International Group of Astronomers

The universe, in itself, contains so many mysteries that it can hardly be veiled from them. Astronomers are constantly unraveling these mysteries, but as soon as one mystery is revealed, another one also comes out after some time. There are countless stars, galaxies and other cosmic objects in the universe that have always amazed us. The universe is being explored with the help of Hubble and other state-of-the-art instruments. In line with this, an international group of astronomers claims to have discovered the most distant galaxy ever. It is also located at a great distance from the most recently discovered star named Earendel . The distance of this star from Earth is about 12.9 billion light years, while this galaxy is located at a distance of 13.5 billion light years from us.  Astronomers have named this galaxy HD-1. However, he has not fully confirmed it. Perhaps the James Webb Telescope can get more information related to this. According to scientists - this possible

Space Bricks Have Been Made for The Development of Infrastructure on Mars

Scientific developments has given wings to human dreams. Our scientific missions have reached to Mars. Efforts are being made to collect evidence related to the possibility of life on Mars. For this, NASA's Mars rover is exploring various regions of Mars. In such a situation, there is also a dream to establish human settlements on this red planet. Scientists around the world are researching ways to build on Mars.  In this direction, Indian scientists have achieved a feat. They have developed a specific bacteria-based technology to produce 'Space Bricks' for build infrastructure on Mars. Such space bricks can be manufactured on a large scale using this technique. This research was jointly carried out by scientists from Bangalore-based Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO ). For this, he used simulant soil of Mars and urea. These space bricks can be used for set up infrastructure on Mars, which will make it easier to set

Creative People's Brain Works in A Creative Way Compared to Other People

There is a saying that no work is special, but the way of doing it is what makes it special. The same is true in the context of a person's creativity. A new research study has revealed the explanation of how a person's way of doing things can be different from other people. In this, the researchers found that the brain of a highly creative person works differently than other people. Due to this their creativity gives them different kind of happiness and they also complete their work soon. The study is published in the journal Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts . Exceptionally creative visual artists and scientists are placed in the Big C creative category. Some of this group volunteered to have Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of their brains.

The Curcumin Found in Turmeric is Very Beneficial for The Tissues and Blood Vessels

A lot of information has come to the fore about the medicinal properties of turmeric. Now a research from the University of California states that the curcumin found in turmeric can prove to be very beneficial in the development of artificial blood vessels and tissues. The research findings were published in the journal ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces . From this study, it is indicated that the bioengineers at Riverside will soon be able to develop blood vessels and tissues in the laboratory. As a result of this achievement, it will be easier to replace or regenerate damaged tissue in humans. Curcumin has antioxidant properties that have anti-inflammatory properties also. It is also known to reduce angiogenesis in cancerous tumors. But magnetic hydrogels containing curcumin-coated nanoparticles enhance the growth-promoting secretion of vascular endothelial. Actually, the possibility of using curcumin in vascular regeneration was already being expressed. But no concret

Due to Climate Change, The Fish Population Will Decrease Unexpectedly

At present, climate change remains a major and worldwide problem. Probably no organism on earth is untouched by the effects of climate change. The ever-increasing temperature (global warming) is affecting everyone. Recently, a new study related to climate change has revealed a new thing.  This study said that due to climate change, the temperature of the oceans is increasing unexpectedly which will eventually negatively affect the fish species. This will not only reduce the total fish population but will also lead to the loss of fish biodiversity.  The study was published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B . This study presents a mixed picture of the marine ecosystem. It states that warming of the climate will push larger species of fish and their occupations out of their historical ranges, but will not be as abundant in their new geographic ranges. For example, a fisherman can find fish in the Atlantic Ocean even after 200 years from today, but their numbers may be

Mental Depression Can Greatly Increase The Risk of Heart And Related Diseases

Mental health has always been said to be related to physical fitness. This has also been confirmed by scientific researches. Recently, a new research has reported that depression in the elderly significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular (heart and arterial) diseases. The research, led by researcher Sandra Martín Plage and her team from the University of Granada , Spain, was published in the journal PLOS One . Cardiovascular disease and depression are believed to be closely related because of similar risk factors such as inflammation and oxidative stress. However, it has also been proven that depression can also be an important factor in increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease. But there have been very few studies analyzing the possible consequences of depression on cardiovascular health.

The Ability of Emotional People to Learn and Understand Can Also Become Weak

If you are emotionally unstable, you may face cognitive decline later on. This means that your ability to think and understand may be weaker than people who are emotionally stable, strong and self-controlled. This study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology . The study explored the effects of personality traits such as individual conscientiousness, psychopathic behavior, and being more sensitive and reactionary to surrounding activities on cognitive abilities later in life. Tomiko Yonedo, a researcher at the University of Victoria and lead author of the study, said that personal qualities and attitudes affect a person's enduring patterns of behavior. It completely affects the ability to think for a lifetime. In life, such mental experiences sometimes also come in the form of mental illness or pathology. It differentiates them from others in terms of cognitive impairment or age-related neurological changes. According to Yoneda, a person who h

A New Type of Human Lung Cell Discovered

Recently, new information has emerged about lung diseases. Scientists have identified a new type of cell in the depths of the human lung. According to him the newly discovered cell plays an important role in lung diseases. This research was published in the science journal ' Nature '. The researchers did a thorough analysis of human lung tissue to identify these cells. He named these cells Respiratory Airway Secretory Cells (RASCS). These airway branching cells are located deep in the lungs near the alveoli structure, where the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen takes place. Scientists found that RASCS has a kind of stem cell-like properties. This enables them to regenerate cells that are necessary for the normal functioning of the alveoli. Researchers have also found evidence that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) caused by smoking interferes with the rebirth process of RASCS. This suggests that blocking this barrier may be a better approach to COPD t

Insomnia-Related Complaints Are Found In About Half of the Heart Disease Patients

Along with heart disease, there is also an increase in many types of health related problems. A lot of research has also been done about that. A recent research study has found that almost 50% of heart patients suffer from insomnia. This research was published in the journal ' Sleep Advances '. Lars Frojd, a medical student at the University of Oslo and lead author of the paper, said: 'There is a general belief that sleep disturbances are associated with mental health, but we found in our study that if we also include factors such as anxiety and depression. Still, sleeplessness is more related to heart disease. This study cautions that insomnia should also be taken care in the treatment of heart patients and adequate management should also be needed for it. He told that in this study 1,068 people who had undergone heart attack or bypass surgery were followed up for 6 months.  During this, data was collected about sleeplessness, a repeat factor of cardiovascular

Mushrooms Also Express Emotions Like Humans With the Help of Their Dictionary

We have been reading since childhood that there is life in plants too. If we hurt them they also feel pain. Our knowledge of the emotions of trees and plants was very limited. Recently, researchers have claimed for the first time that mushrooms also interact with each other. His dictionary consists about 50 words. They interacts like human being through electric impulses. Sometimes they share their happiness with each other and sometimes they are each other's partner in pain.  The most amazing thing in this is that the emotions of mushrooms are also manifested in much the same way as humans. Professor Andrew Adamatzki of the University of the West England is the lead researcher of this research. In mushrooms, this conclusion has been drawn by microscopic analysis of the electric activity pattern.   They claim that both brain and consciousness are found in mushrooms. Despite having a dictionary of about 50 words, they use more than 20 words.  According to this, the elect

Plastic Pollution in Ininhabited Areas Like the Arctic is As Serious As the Rest of The World

Plastic pollution is now affecting even the most deserted and coldest areas of the world. Scientists say that as much plastic pollution is around us, it has also reached deserted places like the Arctic. This new study finds that debris from clothing, personal care product residues, packaging and other everyday materials that are transported north of the Arctic Ocean via ocean waves, wind gusts and river drainage systems are seriously affecting the Arctic ecosystem.  In addition, microplastics have made their way everywhere. Now, this is being found in the infinite depths of the ocean, on remote beaches, in rivers, and even in ice.   But researchers were taken by surprise when measurable microplastic levels were detected in human blood in March this year. In Germany, according to a study by the Alfred Wegener Institute , plastics have become a major challenge to the environment and ecology.   Lead author Melanie Bergman of the research team said: 'The Arctic is thought

Neuron Deficiency Is The Main Reason for Nap And Sleep in Alzheimer's Patients

Scientists have discovered in a recent study that the decline in a specific type of neuron is responsible for the naps or lethargy of Alzheimer patients. These neurons help us to sleep, wake up and stay refreshed and alert. A study published in the journal JAMA Neurology also confirmed that a certain type of tau protein is responsible for the decline in this type of neuron. It is generally believed that Alzheimer's patients are unable to sleep properly at night, as a result of which they keep on nap during the day and remain lethargic. Its treatment is recommended so that Alzheimer's sufferers can remain refreshed and alert. The study used data from patients admitted to the Memory and Aging Center at UC San Francisco. The sleep of Alzheimer's sufferers was monitored through electroencephalogram (EEG). Patients who donated their brain after death. Their brain tissue and sleep data were analyzed closely by the researchers.  According to Greenberg, a colleague of

The Habit of Sleeping With Lights on At Night Has An Adverse Effect on Our Health

Some people like to sleep in the dark at night while some sleep with the lights on. It all has its own exes. But these conditions have an impact on our health. Recently, a research has been told that even if you sleep in low light at night then it has negative effects on health. So you should make a habit of sleeping in the dark. In the US, according to researchers from Northwestern University, if we sleep with dim lights on, our cardiovascular function is negatively affected and insulin resistance increases the next morning. Dr. Phyllis G., chief of sleep medicine at the Feinberg School of Medicine , said that if you sleep in dim light, there may be disturbances in glucose and cardiovascular regulation, which can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other metabolic syndromes. On the basis of these study findings, it is said that while sleeping at night, either turn off the light completely or keep the light at least. This research study was published in the jo

People Taking Both Doses Against COVID-19 Also Develop Immunity Against Other Viruses

If you have been infected with the corona virus once and have also taken both doses of the vaccine, then you have been protected from other virus infections including corona. This has been said in a study published in the medical journal The Lancet Infectious Disease . Researchers micro-analyzed the health data of the people of Brazil during 2020-21. It is known that Brazil had the highest number of deaths after America. In this study, researchers found that people who had already been infected with COVID-19, developed immunity to 90%, preventing death due to Pfizer and astrazeneca vaccines. In the context of China's CoronaVac, this figure was 81%, while it was 58% in the case of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine.

Lack of Sleep Not Only Increases The Mental Stress But Also Increases Fat in Our Body

Adequate sleep is essential for a healthy life. Lack of sleep can also lead to many types of physical and mental health problems. Lack of sleep also has the potential to give rise to a dreadful disease like cancer. Recently, Mayo Clinic research has found that lack of sleep and eating disorders can lead to unhealthy fats in our body. The research was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology . The study, led by Naima Kovasin, a researcher in cardiovascular medicine at the Mayo Clinic, found that lack of adequate sleep leads to an increase in total abdominal fat, or fat, by up to nine percent. In addition, it can be up to 11 percent in the intestinal part. It aggravates cardiac and metabolic diseases. The main reason is our irregular lifestyle for this. By one estimate, about a third of adults in the US are deprived of adequate sleep because of shift work. Recommended ⬇️ Older People Who Take Statin Drugs Have A Lower Risk of Parkinson's Disease Ove
