A new study has found that seasonally-influenced changes in diet and environmental stressors change the amount and kinds of sugars in a mother's breastmilk. This, in turn, impacts her baby's gut microbiota, growth rate and ability to fend off illness.
A new study by integrative physiology professor Ken Wright shows that as little as 48 hours of camping can help re-set the body's circadian rhythm, or internal clock, helping people fall asleep earlier.
While no one media type controls the broader news agenda, partisan media now has the strongest influence, followed by emerging non-partisan media outlets – like BuzzFeed and Gawker – over longtime traditional outlets such as The New York Times and The Washington Post.
A new study shows that when mice with schizophrenic characteristics are administered a steady dose of nicotine their brain activity normalizes. The research could lead to non-addictive nicotine-based treatments for psychiatric disorders.
Jens Schmidt, a postdoctoral fellow at the BioFrontiers Institute, was just awarded the Damon Runyon-Dale Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists to further his research on how regenerating protective chromosomal caps called telomeres, long believed to preserve youth, can also promote disease.
Research by integrative physiology professor Christopher Lowry found that injecting mice with a bacteria called Mycobacterium vaccae fended off physical and behavioral signs of stress. Now human studies are underway.
CU Boulder researchers have successfully reversed vascular dysfunction in aging mice with a dietary supplement. The findings have implications for preventing cardiovascular dysfunction and disease during aging in humans.
A new ultrasound technology developed by CU researchers and used by CU Boulder football, track and field, and basketball players, enables athletes to painlessly measure how nourished or depleted their muscles are, real-time, in 15 seconds.
