Rising atmospheric water vapor levels and global warming

Rising water vapor levels in the upper troposphere are likely the result of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and could magnify the warming effects of the emissions, according to a study. Greenhouse gases raise temperatures by trapping the Earth’s radiant heat inside the atmosphere, and warming in turn increases the accumulation of atmospheric water vapor, the most abundant greenhouse gas.

Gender disparities in cognitive abilities

Improvements to living conditions and decreases in gender restrictions in education may alter the pattern of cognitive disparities observed between men and women, according to a study. Because mechanisms of gender-based cognitive differences remain unclear, Daniela Weber, Agneta Herlitz, and colleagues investigated the influence of improvements to living conditions and educational equality on cognitive gender differences.

Also of interest from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Mice undergoing fear conditioning displayed altered gene transcription, increased synaptic activity, and increased plasticity within the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) region of the brain, and inhibition of mPFC neurons impaired long-term memory formation, suggesting that early changes within the mPFC might enable long-term memory storage, according to a study.

Serial time-encoded amplified microscopy for ultrafast imaging based on multi-wavelength laser

Serial time-encoded amplified microscopy (STEAM) is an effective and important tool for studying dynamical events. Researchers from the Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences have figured out a STEAM system based on a multi-wavelength laser. This system has advantages of low cost, tunable frame rate and large measurement range.

Special issue on Earth’s disappearing animals

Five mass extinction events have been documented in the fossil record, and Earth is currently in the midst of a “sixth extinction wave,” according to researchers. It’s widely accepted that human activity is speeding the demise of many animal species through the destruction of wild lands, the consumption of animals as resources or luxuries and the persecution of species that humans view as threats or competitors.

Diverse ecosystems get organized for stability

Ecological networks that are highly organized are more stable, a new study reports, meaning that changes to these networks don't cause them to fall apart. The study found that the species living in highly ordered networks can experience very different growth rates, one to the next, without threatening the overall network structure.

Feathers more widespread among dinosaurs

Fossils unearthed in Siberia suggest that feathers may have been more widespread among dinosaurs than scientists have thought -- limited not merely to the dinosaur clade associated with the first bird, but present among a vast array of dinosaur groups. Scientists have long debated the origin of birds, with prominent debates relating to the origin of key avian features such as feathers.

Laser therapy on the repair of a large-gap transected sciatic nerve in a reinforced nerve conduit

Despite considerable advances in microsurgical techniques, the functional results of peripheral nerve repair remain largely unsatisfactory. Regrowth of nerves across large gaps is particularly challenging, usually requiring a nerve graft to bridge the proximal and distal nerve stumps. The introduction of low-level laser (LLL) in treating peripheral nerve damage has been widely demonstrated. For clinical applicability, LLL makes an important contribution towards the development of a safe and effective strategy for rehabilitating peripheral nerve injuries.

Characterization of Clostridium difficile infection from a tertiary care hospital in China

Recently, Clostridium difficile has beencome a prominent pathogen associated with nosocomial infection. The present study collected 94 Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) cases, and analyzeding the clinical and microbiological features comprehensively. The results indicated that no specific clinical genotype or microbiological features were found in severe cases, and that antimicrobial resistance could be the primary reason for epidemic strains leading to the dissemination and persistence of CDI.

Efficacy of moxifloxacin versus levofloxacin plus metronidazole for CAP with aspiration

This was a prospective, multicenter, open-label, randomized controlled trial. 77Seventy-seven patients of mild-to-moderate CAP with aspiration factors were enrolled and randomly assigned to receive moxifloxacin or levofloxacin plus metronidazole. A total of 23 patients (76.7%) in the moxifloxacin group achieved clinical cure and 15 (51.7%) in the levofloxacin plus metronidazole group (χ2=4.002,P<0.05). Moxifloxacin was effective and safe in treatingment of CAP with aspiration factors, and the monotherapy was more convenient.
