Tinnitus: New evidence touch-sensing nerve cells may fuel 'ringing in the ears' ANWe all know that it can take a little while for our hearing to bounce back after listening to our iPods too loud or attending a raucous concert. But new research at the University of Michigan Health System suggests over-exposure to noise can actually cause more lasting changes to our auditory circuitry -- changes that may lead to tinnitus, commonly known as ringing in the ears. U-M researchers previously demonstrated that after hearing damage, touch-sensing "somatosensory" nerves in the face and neck can become overactive, seeming to overcompensate for the loss of auditory input in a way the brain interprets -- or "hears" -- as noise that isn't really there. The new study, which appears in the Feb. 1 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience, found that somatosensory neurons maintain a high level of activity following exposure to loud noise, even after hearing itself returns to normal. While the new study builds on previous discoveries by Shore and her team, many aspects are new.

Lab-grown meat is first step to artificial hamburger 19 February 2012Last updated at 15:29 ET By Pallab Ghosh Science correspondent, BBC News, Vancouver The first strips of muscle have been grown in a project to develop a new way to produce meat Dutch scientists have used stem cells to create strips of muscle tissue with the aim of producing the first lab-grown hamburger later this year. The aim of the research is to develop a more efficient way of producing meat than rearing animals. At a major science meeting in Canada, Prof Mark Post said synthetic meat could reduce the environmental footprint of meat by up to 60%. "We would gain a tremendous amount in terms of resources," he said. Professor Post's group at Maastricht University in the Netherlands has grown small pieces of muscle about 2cm long, 1cm wide and about a mm thick. They are off-white and resemble strips of calamari in appearance. At a news conference, Prof Post said he was even planning to ask celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal to cook it.

Fotos physicscentral 'Ringing In The Ears' May Be Caused By Overactive Nerves; Acupuncture May Help, Study Suggests Do your ears ring after a loud concert? Nerves that sense touch in your face and neck may be behind the racket in your brain, University of Michigan researchers say. Touch-sensing nerve cells step up their activity in the brain after hearing cells are damaged, a study by U-M Kresge Hearing Research Institute scientists shows. Hyperactivity of these touch-sensing neurons likely plays an important role in tinnitus, often called "ringing in the ears." The research findings were made in animals, but they suggest that available treatments such as acupuncture, if used to target nerves in the head and neck, may provide relief for some people plagued by tinnitus, says Susan E. Shore, Ph.D., lead author of the study and research professor in the Department of Otolaryngology and the Kresge Hearing Research Institute at the U-M Medical School. People with tinnitus sense ringing or other sounds in their ears or head when there is no outside source.

Secrets of the shopping trolley A survey found that when they cook, more than half of all Australians rotate between a repertoire of five meals or fewer. Photo: Peter Braig YEAH, yeah, I know - two serves of fruit and six serves of veg; three serves of lean meat and six (six!) serves of grains. Two-and-a-half of dairy; and beer, vodka and triple-choc mud cake ''only sometimes and in small amounts''. The daily diet guidelines are spelt out in detail by the Department of Health and Ageing in an effort to save us from ourselves. But I don't eat like that and chances are you don't either. We are eating fewer potatoes but more cheese; fewer carrots but more yoghurt. Advertisement When we went out to dinner in 2002, it was most probably to Italian. According to Hourigan, protein and carbohydrate intakes are both up. Likewise, we are getting more grains, but not in the form we might recognise. When we cook, a Westfield survey found more than half of all Australians rotate between a repertoire of five meals or fewer.

Stellarium Rewarding your child: 10 Alternatives to food My son gets more candy and food rewards than most other kids. Everyone wants to reward him because he’s such a hard worker: therapists, special education teachers, general education teachers, paraprofessionals, art, music, religion and foreign language teachers. Because of the natural gifts of autism, he usually wins math speed drills and spelling bees with their candy prizes. He’s a high energy kid, so he cheerfully joins me on all of my errands, and he gets candy rewards for being my helper from the cashier at the grocery store, the bank teller, even at some doctor’s offices. Then there are the candy holidays at school: Halloween, Thanksgiving, the winter holiday party, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, St. What are the benefits of offering food or candy as a reward? Not only are there no benefits of offering food as a reward, but doing so may cause serious harm, especially to children in a school setting. These are the top 10 reasons not to offer food as a reward:10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5.
