Neuroscientists Identify Neural Networks Confirming Mind-Body Connection

Neuroscientists at the University of Pittsburgh have identified the neural networks that connect the cerebral cortex to the adrenal medulla, which is responsible for the body’s rapid response in stressful situations. These findings, reported in the online Early Edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), provide evidence for the neural basis of a mind-body connection. Read more

Diet key to lifespan and fertility

It may be possible to live longer and increase fertility by manipulating diet, according to world-first research in mice from the University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre. Researchers showed for the first time in mammals that there is an ideal balance of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat) for reproduction and another, different ideal balance for increasing lifespan. The research, published …
