Researchers have proposed a way to mitigate risk for football and soccer players and others at risk of concussion: Protect your head with neck-strengthening exercises in the pre-season. New research examines previous studies on the role that the neck's strength, size and posture play in reducing concussion risk.
Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease associated with reduced bone strong point that results in raised fracture risk, with decreased bone strength, leading to reduced bone mineral density and poor bone quality.

Endurance training, resistance training, or high-intensity interval training - what type of physical exercise will help your body to stay youthful for longer? A new study aims to answer that question.
Scientists have discovered a new protein complex that keeps the brakes on stem cells, allowing them to maintain their indefinite potential. The new complex, called GBAF, could provide a future target for regenerative medicine.
For more than two decades, physician-scientist Pablo Celnik has studied how people acquire new motor abilities and what makes those abilities stick around. To this end, he’s used noninvasive brain stimulation techniques including transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
