Predicting arrhythmias so as to prevent them

Study of cardiac condition could lead to design of better cardiac device
Mon, 2015-09-28 09:47

Researchers have discovered how to predict some cardiac arrhythmias several steps before they even occur. It’s a finding that could lead to an improved cardiac device, with equipment designed to detect when arrhythmias are about to occur and then act to prevent them.

Keeping your balance

Identification of key neurons that sense unexpected motion has significant implications for understanding of motion sickness
Mon, 2013-07-29 11:37

It happens to all of us at least once each winter in Montreal. You’re walking on the sidewalk and before you know it you are slipping on a patch of ice hidden under a dusting of snow. Sometimes you fall. Surprisingly often, you manage to recover your balance and walk away unscathed. McGill University researchers now understand what’s going on in the brain when you manage to recover your balance in these situations. And it is not just a matter of good luck.
