Take advantage of all the culture that Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Queens have to offer. A lot of events or free or simply ask for a donation.

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day (which, this year, is on Monday, September 2nd), there are countless events throughout the city.

Some activities […]

A Big Step in Understanding Parkinson’s

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Massachusetts General Hospital paired up to research just what happens to the brain during Parkinson’s disease. What they found could lead to better treatment and further research. Tremors, stiffness, and weakness are known as the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, and there’s no denying how awful this experience can be. However, research never allowed us to see into the brain to understand why these things happened. We just knew that they did.

The researches took four MRI scans, all on the same machine but with different settings, to create one combined image. This image could dive […]

New MRI Technique Helps Pave the Way to Help Veterans

“About 320,000 American troops have sustained traumatic brain injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan.” This number is shockingly high, and as doctors, we want to do everything we can to help them. That’s why a new study by Dr. David L. Brody and others at Washington University (while collaborating with Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany) worked to find how blasts affected the human brain.

The study called for a highly sensitive type of MRI, a diffusion tensor imaging. Most MRI machines have the capability, and while it doesn’t take longer/cost more, the techniques have yet to be perfected. The way it […]

Latest Breast Cancer Discovery: Four New Classifications

On Sunday, it was reported by a group of scientists who just completed an analysis of breast cancer genetics, that they could classify breast cancer into four major new classes.  Scientists hope that this will lead to even more effective treatments.  Some of the findings also hinted that one of the classifications may be more susceptible to a drug that they use to fight ovarian cancer.
The study was published by the journal Nature and focuses on the biological details of tumors, whereas, in the past they focus on where the cancer arises.  The scientists are hoping that this study helps […]
