Using functional MRI and electrophysiology, researchers in the Penn State College of Engineering identified a link between respiration and neural activity changes in the brain. This means taking a deep breath can actually impact one’s emotional state — long acknowledged to be effective by mental health practitioners, but never before proven by science.When the oncologist and bestselling author of The Gene found himself drowning in a tide of sadness, he instinctively looked to cells for an explanation. Did the answers lie in the brain?. A pioneer of integrative medicine and personal transformation, the Indian-American author tells us how tech can fuel the future of wellbeing ahead of his session at .

The overarching goal of the Penn State Geroscience and Dementia Prevention Consortium is to accelerate the scientific discoveries that will prevent or delay age-related neurodegeneration.Penn State researchers found that the maximum wet-bulb temperature humans can endure is lower than previously thought — about 31°C wet-bulb or 87°F at 100% humidity — even for young, healthy subjects. The temperature for older populations, who are more vulnerable to heat, is likely even lower.Minister of Immigration Michael Wood will travel to Washington D.C this week to represent New Zealand at the annual Five Country Ministerial. The Five. In a new research project, Penn State researchers will investigate potential ways to stimulate the muscle to make more ribosomes — particles in the cell that make proteins that then build muscle. While previous work has found that falling numbers of ribosomes contribute to muscle loss, there is currently no way to reverse or slow that process.
