Background: - Neck pain is defined as mechanical, neuropathic or secondary to any other disorder and it can be acute, 6 weeks; sub acute, 3 months; chronic, >3 months. types of potential causes for neck pain: medical effects, severe or non-threatening causes, usual and rare conditions, and genuine and invalid causes. Motor control was defined as motor relearning program with emphasis on coordination and holding capabilities of specific neck flexor, extensor, and shoulder girdle muscles. MET is a method of treatment that involves the voluntary contraction of a Patients muscle in a precisely controlled direction, against a counterforce provided by the therapist.Methodology: - In the study 50 chronic neck pain patients will be enrolled. And will be divided into 25 in each group. One group will receive Muscle Energy Technique and the other group will receive Motor Control Exercise as well as conventional therapy for 4 weeks. Pain, ROM and strength will be evaluated using the standard technique. Discussion: - The goal of this Interventional study is to examine the impact of MET versus MCE with conventional therapy on patients with chronic neck pain. This research will help in identifying rapid and long term effects of MET versus ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Nodding Syndrome

Nodding Syndrome is a neurological and epileptiform disorder characterized by psychomotor, mental, and growth retardation. Discover the latest research on Nodding Syndrome here.

LRRK2 & Microtubules

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are risk-factors for developing Parkinson’s disease (PD). LRRK2 mutations in PD have been shown to enhance its association with microtubules. Here is the latest research.
