This study, which involved both quantitative and qualitative methods, investigated the contribution of group learning to the rehabilitation of spinal cord injured adults. The views of spinal cord injured persons, their families, and professional nurses involved in spinal cord injury rehabilitation were compared. A telephone questionnaire that measured attitudes toward group learning and gathered demographic data was administered to 60 adults with spinal cord injuries in northern Illinois. Data analysis indicated a range of positive attitudes for all subjects. Personal interviews then were conducted with 8 spinal cord injured persons, 6 family members, and 8 rehabilitation nurses to compare perceptions about the effects of group learning. All those interviewed stated that contact among spinal cord injured persons is an important factor in adjustment to the injury. Positive attitudes toward group learning were communicate by all three subject groups. Motivation, sharing of experiences, camaraderie with and support from peers, and knowledge that they were not alone were identified as advantages of group learning.

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

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.
