Scientists discover critical molecular biomarkers of preeclampsia

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study identifies novel molecular biomarkers of preeclampsia, a sudden pregnancy complication, signaling the potential for an early diagnostic blood test.

Practical work-related tasks may reduce burnout in new employees

Managers hoping to avoid employee burnout and early turnover try to provide new employees with gentle assistance during their "easing in" period. But a new Tel Aviv University study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology suggests that immediately charging new employees with simple, direct and meaningful tasks may be no less effective in preventing newcomer burnout.

Practical work-related tasks may reduce burnout in new employees

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study suggests that immediately charging new employees with simple, direct and meaningful tasks may be more effective in preventing newcomer burnout in the workplace than providing 'emotional' assistance.

A biological approach to precision medicine targets endless number of diseases

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study proposes a novel approach to manipulate genes using a self-assembling platform that delivers nucleic acids to distinct subsets of cells. The new modular platform offers a robust biological approach -- and may hold the key to the future of personalized medicine.

Modern humans left Africa 50,000 years earlier than previously thought

An international team that includes Tel Aviv University, Binghamton University and the University of New York has announced the discovery of the earliest modern human fossil to be found outside of Africa dating from 50,000 years ago. The post Modern humans left Africa 50,000 years earlier than previously thought appeared first on HeritageDaily - Heritage & Archaeology News.

Benefits of smoking cessation medications diminish over time

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study published in Addiction finds that only eight out of 100 smokers who take smoking cessation medications will have benefited from taking smoking medications after one year's time.

Remains of earliest modern human outside of Africa unearthed in Israel

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A jawbone complete with teeth recently discovered at Israel's Misliya cave by Tel Aviv University and University of Haifa researchers has now been dated to 177,000-194,000 years ago. The finding indicates that modern humans were present in the Levant at least 50,000 years earlier than previously thought.

Scientists discover oldest known modern human fossil outside of Africa

A large international research team, led by Israel Hershkovitz from Tel Aviv University and including Rolf Quam from Binghamton University, State University of New York, has discovered the earliest modern human fossil ever found outside of Africa. The finding suggests that modern humans left the continent at least 50,000 years earlier than previously thought.

Novel nanomedicine inhibits progression of pancreatic cancer in mice

A new Tel Aviv University study pinpoints the inverse correlation between a known oncogene -- a gene that promotes the development of cancer -- and the expression of an oncosuppressor microRNA as the reason for extended pancreatic cancer survival. The study may serve as a basis for the development of an effective cocktail of drugs for this deadly disease and other cancers.

From the omelette to the egg: Reversing protein aggregations

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study suggests a novel form of protein aggregation that is both reversible and has positive physiological consequences for cells. The discovery may eventually lead to new therapies for neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and 'mad cow' diseases.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study reveals that hyperbaric oxygen treatments may alleviate symptoms experienced by patients with Alzheimer's disease.

Dual virtual reality/treadmill exercises promote brain plasticity in Parkinson's patients

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study suggests that a therapy that combines Virtual Reality and treadmill exercise dramatically lowers the incidence of falling among Parkinson's patients by changing the brain's behavior and promoting beneficial brain plasticity, even in patients with neurodegenerative disease.

Conference on High Intensity Lasers in Israel (CHILI) brings world's top scientists to Tel Aviv

(The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) This year's international Conference on High Intensity Lasers in Israel (CHILI) will bring scientists together for three days in Tel Aviv to discuss the interaction of high intensity lasers with matter, such as laser fusion, ion/electron/laser acceleration, X-ray/neutron radiation, and attoscience.

Nano-watch has steady hands

(University of Vienna) An international team from the Universities of Vienna, Duisburg-Essen and Tel Aviv have created a nanomechanical hand to show the time of an electronic clock, by spinning a tiny cylinder using light. A siliconShow More Summary

Children's exposure to secondhand smoke may be vastly underestimated by parents

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study suggests that parents who smoke mistakenly rely on their own physical senses to gauge the presence of tobacco smoke in the air.

Your stress and mine

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study finds that people often project their own experiences with stress onto their colleagues and employees, causing miscommunication and, often, missed opportuniti...

When you're tired, your brain cells actually slow down

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A new Tel Aviv University study finds that individual neurons slow down when we are sleep deprived, leading to delayed behavioral responses to events taking place around us. The slowdown affects the brain's visual perception and memory associations.

Groundbreaking quark fusion generates 10 time as much energy as nuclear fusion

Physicists at Tel Aviv University and University of Chicago have discovered that quark fusion, involving the tiny particles known as quarks of which protons and neutrons are made, is an even more potentially energy-packed reaction than much-touted nuclear fusion. Show More Summary
