Did you ever want to get really good at something when you were younger? Over the years, you tend to lose some of the spark and the belief in yourself that you’ll succeed. But – there’s hope.
UN Sustainable Development Goals: Good Health and Well-being
Detecting colon cancer early is the key to survival and quality of life. Researchers at NTNU are working to make it easy for people to check their intestines from home.
Many people who experience problems with memory after a stroke regain their memory within three months.
How can we get an artificial hand or foot to communicate with the brain? NTNU researchers want to use the fat layer just under our skin.
A lot of young people have depressive symptoms. Ruminative thinking, and even thinking about how much you ruminate, reinforces the symptoms. But there is hope.
Healthy and successful people are the least willing to contribute more to the public health care system.
Minutes count when you have a heart attack. Patient involvement is a statutory right but not always possible in this situation. Elise K. Bårdsgjerde has researched participation in the different phases of the patient process from the perspective of patients, nurses and doctors.
Is it possible to identify signs of depression by analysing the content young people post online and in chat rooms? The answer is yes!
Healthier habits and more activity reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. But many people still choose not to change their habits.
For the first time, heroin overdose nasal sprays have been tested on more than 200 real acute patients.
Young children are not sufficiently listened to and included in their own case decisions in Child Welfare Services. A European development project has been tasked with tackling the issue.
Meet Mini2P – a tiny brain explorer that allows us to discover completely new landscapes in the live and active brain.
The RS virus more often leads to hospitalizations in children than the coronavirus alone. New research results show that fewer children who get both the rhinovirus and corona appear to get seriously sick than kids who contract corona alone.
The underlying cause of many cardiovascular diseases is inflammation of the artery walls. Now NTNU researchers have found that a specific neurotransmitter in the immune cells is a key factor when cholesterol accumulates in our blood vessels.
Some occupations got a lot busier when COVID-19 hit. Sleep and quality of life for many workers in essential occupations have been strongly impacted.
Researchers at NTNU have managed to restore muscle function in older mice with muscle loss using advanced gene therapy. The hope is that this method might eventually be used on humans to prevent severe loss of muscle mass.
Seventy- to eighty-year-olds who train for better fitness are better at solving cognitive tasks and are less likely to suffer cognitive impairment.
Covering glass microscope slides in tiny, nano-sized pillars can mimic a cell’s natural environment – and could help biologists understand how cells act inside the human body.
Little research has been done on how nano- and microplastics affect children. Researchers are surveying what we actually know and offer some useful tips to parents.
More than half of the individuals who suffer a stroke subsequently struggle with concentration and problem solving. Cognitive impairment following a stroke doesn’t go away. The problem has been overlooked, according to a major research project.
Plastic consumer products contain chemicals that may promote the development of overweight and obesity.
Plastic contains thousands of chemicals. Until now, we haven’t known if these leach into the environment to any great extent. Now we know that they do.
Researchers have gained a first insight into how the brain structures higher-level information. By extracting and analysing data from a neural network of grid cells, they found that the collective neural activity is shaped like the surface of a doughnut. The study, from NTNU’s Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience and collaborators, is published in Nature.
