Researchers Find Proteins That Might Restore Damaged Sound-Detecting Cells in The Ear

Using genetic tools in mice, researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine say they have identified a pair of proteins that precisely control when sound-detecting cells, known as hair cells, are born in the mammalian inner ear. The proteins, described in a report published June 12 in eLife, may hold a key to future therapies to restore hearing in people with irreversible deafness.

أظهرت دراسة أجرتها Mayo Clinic أنه بإمكان الذكاء الاصطناعي إجراء فحص دقيق وبتكلفة منخفضة للرجفان الأذيني

أظهرت دراسة بحثية جديدة أجرتهاMayo Clinic أن الذكاء الاصطناعي (AI) يمكنه الكشف عن علامات عدم انتظام ضربات القلب – الرجفان الأذيني(AF) – في مخطط كهربية القلب، حتى لو كان نبض القلب طبيعيًا في وقت الاختبار. وبعبارة أخرى، يمكن أن يكتشف مخطط كهربية القلب المدعوم بالذكاء الاصطناعي الرجفان الأذيني الذي يحدث بدون أعراض أو يُعد وشيك الحدوث، مما يحسن خيارات العلاج.

O estudo da Mayo Clinic mostra que a IA poderia permitir uma triagem precisa e barata para a fibrilação atrial

Um novo estudo de investigação da Mayo Clinic mostra que a inteligência artificial (IA) pode detectar os sinais de um ritmo cardíaco irregular — fibrilação atrial(FA) — em um eletrocardiograma, mesmo que o coração esteja em ritmo normal no momento do teste. Em outras palavras, o eletrocardiograma ativado por IA pode detectar fibrilação atrial recente que tenha ocorrido sem sintomas ou que seja iminente, potencialmente melhorando as opções de tratamento. Essa pesquisa poderia melhorar a eficiência do eletrocardiograma.

Mayo Clinic的研究表明AI可以进行准确的心房颤动筛查且费用低廉

Mayo Clinic的一项新试验研究表明,即使在测试时心脏处于正常节律状态,人工智能(AI)也可以在心电图(EKG)中检测到心律不齐的征象 — 心房颤动(AF)。换句话说,启用AI的EKG可以检测出最近发生的无症状心房颤动或即将发生的心房颤动,从而可能改善治疗方案。这项研究可以提高EKG的效率,EKG是一种无创且广泛使用的心脏疾病筛查方法。

Despite their large body size, gorillas are known to have a vegetarian diet

A long-term study of western gorillas in Gabon has revealed an unexpected behavior: they use their teeth to crack open and eat nuts. New research by Adam van Casteren, lecturer in biological anthropology in Arts & Sciences, may have important implications for the way researchers predict the diet of human ancestors based on the shape of their teeth.
