Imaging technique shows premature birth interrupts vital brain development processes leading to reduced cognitive abilities in infants (5/22/2013)

Researchers from King's College London have for the first time used a novel form of MRI to identify crucial developmental processes in the brain that are vulnerable to the effects of premature birth. This new study, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that disruption of these specific processes can have an impact on cognitive function. ...> Full Article


Youth who have their first drink during puberty have higher levels of later drinking (5/21/2013)

The earlier the age at which youth take their first alcoholic drink, the greater the risk of later alcohol problems. New research examines the influence of puberty on initiation of drinking.

New study recommends using active videogaming ('exergaming') to improve children's health (5/20/2013)

Levels of physical inactivity and obesity are very high in children, with fewer than 50 percent of primary school-aged boys and fewer than 28 percent of girls meeting the minimum levels of physical activity required to maintain health. Exergaming, using active console video games that track player movement to control the game, has become popular, and may provide an alternative form of exercise to counteract sedentary behaviors. In a study scheduled for publication in The Journal of Pediatrics, researchers studied the effects of exergaming on children. ...> Full Article
