• Sleep Problems, Alzheimer’s Disease Are Linked, But Which Comes First?:  A new article explores the pathophysiological factors that link sleep disturbances and Alzheimer’s disease. Better understanding of this connection may lead to potential diagnostics and therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases and dementia. The article is published ahead of print in the Journal of Neurophysiology (JNP).
  • Better Regulation of the Immune System May Minimize Preeclampsia Symptoms:  Boosting the body’s levels of interleukin-4 (IL-4)—an immune system protein that controls inflammation—may help manage the pregnancy complication preeclampsia, according to a new rodent study. The research, published in the American Journal of Physiology—Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, was chosen as an APSselect article for March.
  • Hypertension-related changes May Occur Earlier in Young Women with Family History:  New research suggests that young women with a family history of high blood pressure (hypertension) have decreased baroreflex function, which may increase their risk for hypertension later in life. The article, published ahead of print in the Journal of Neurophysiology (JNP), was chosen as an APSselect article for March
  • Brain Processes Concrete and Abstract Words Differently:  A new review explores the different areas of the brain that process the meaning of concrete and abstract concepts. The article is published ahead of print in the Journal of Neurophysiology (JNP).
  • Too Hot for Comfort: the Physiological Dangers of Extreme Heat:  A new review of more than 140 studies explores the physiological dangers that climate change will likely have on animal life, including humans. The review is published in the journal Physiology.
