(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared imagery from NASA looked at cloud top temperatures in Tropical Storm Nalgae and revealed that wind shear was still affecting the storm.
(Oregon Health & Science University) New research in an animal model suggests a high-fat diet during pregnancy alters the development of the brain and endocrine system of offspring. The new study links an unhealthy diet during pregnancy to mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression in children.
A study which investigated more than 2,000 children across 80 primary schools in Devon, has found that children who are younger than their peers when they start school are more likely to develop poorer mental health, as rated by parents and teachers.
One of the biggest icebergs on record is like a “niggling tooth” about to snap off Antarctica and will be an extra hazard for ships around the frozen continent as it breaks up, scientists said on Wednesday.

(Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center) Research led by neurologists at BIDMC has pinpointed the regions of the brain that may play a role in maintaining consciousness. Two components, arousal and awareness, are thought to be two prerequisites for consciousness. The brainstem region responsible for arousal found to be linked to two areas in the cortex implicated in awareness. This network is disrupted in patients with disorders of consciousness. Findings suggest the network could serve as potential therapeutic target for those patients.
