Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a dreaded and incurable disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord respiratory arrest respiratory arrest was. 2 per 100,000 people worldwide are diagnosed with ALS each year and 6 per 1 million people suffer from ALS. The research article ‘Transient structural distortion of metal-free Cu / Zn superoxide dismutase triggers aberrant oligomerization ‘online online this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America , Early Edition.
The discovery opens up the possibility of designing drugs for a devastating neurological disease.. Research shows that AS, together with other neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson ‘s disease is, by specific proteins, the aberrant aggregates that toxic lethal our nerve cells causing form. However, it has not known what causes to aggregate these proteins. Researchers at Lund University have now shown what happens with proteins during the first, critical step toward formation of larger aggregates.
These proteins.Protein Dynamics Behind Neurological Disease?Researchers at Lund University, Sweden, have a snapshot of proteins change shape assumed stick together and creating structures that are likely to trigger deadly processes in the nervous system.At least 100 alert for For Weary drivingWe’ve all seen after long hours drive, eyelids more and more difficult, relaxing deep yawns, neck muscles are, to the urge to sleeping, of capita nods Downtown. But you hands are still on wheel and you just starting stopping himself microsleep to avoid avoid oncoming traffic.
A system observed the driver and analyzed its mimicry would be much easier and less invasive. A non-rigid motion estimation algorithm to yawns detection of at human drivers in the Journal of Computational Vision and Robotics.
Writing on the first edition of the International Journal of Computational vision of and Robotics, Aurobinda Mishra of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, and colleagues Mihir Mohanty from the ITER, in Orissa and Aurobinda Routray of IIT , West Bengal describe an computer program that to to say, when you yawn and could have prevented traffic accidents.
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration appreciates that at least 100 accidents are due to driver fatigue annually.This new in a car on a vehicle computers be hooked until cameras imaging software a sequence of frames a sequence of images face of the driver.
