Research examining interference effects shows that auditory input often interferes with processing of visual input in young children (i.e., auditory dominance effect), whereas visual input often interferes with auditory processing in adults (i.e., visual dominance effect). The current study used a cross-modal statistical learning task to examine modality dominance in adults. Participants ably learned auditory and visual statistics when auditory and visual sequences were presented unimodally and when auditory and visual sequences were correlated during training. However, increasing task demands resulted in an important asymmetry: Increased task demands attenuated visual statistical learning, while having no effect on auditory statistical learning. These findings are consistent with auditory dominance effects reported in young children and have important implications for our understanding of how sensory modalities interact while learning the structure of cross-modal informationScience on Google+ Posterside Hangouts #12013-08-13 02:30:0099

Americans view Scientists as competent but not warm; worthy of Schadenfreude

An online survey of attitudes towards different professions places Scientists in the high-competence, low-warmth group.  I'm definitely considering re-training for a MD/PhD professorship at a nursing school. 

The fourth corner lists the ambivalently perceived high-competence, low-warmth, “envied” professions: lawyers, chief executive officers, engineers, accountants, scientists, and researchers. They earn respect but not trust. Being seen as competent but cold might not seem problematic until one recalls that communicator credibility requires not just status and expertise (competence) but also trustworthiness (warmth). People report envy and jealousy toward groups in this space. These are mixed emotions that include both admiration and resentment. Science communicators arguably need to knowabout... more »

"You'll have bad times, but it'll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren't paying attention to." -- Robin Williams

This quote couldn't be more relevant to me right now. And as a generally bubbly, giddy person who's experienced depression, I'm not surprised to hear that Robin Williams was fighting severe depression. What I am is very sad, though. :( I'll miss him and his work -- and not just the funny parts.

Little known fact: Virgin births are relatively common in humans

Since we're all talking about the snake mommy who had babies without the help of a snake daddy (http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/worlds-largest-snake-species-gives-virgin-birth-9818968.html), a phenomenon known as parthenogenesis, I'll link again to this study from last year looking at the incidence of this in the human population.  The authors found that self-reported virgin births in a large cohort of American females accounted for approximately 0.5% of all pregnancies.

They found statistical significant correlations between virgin births and mothers who had signed chastity pledges (P=0.007) and those whose parents indicated lower levels of communication with their children about sex and birth control (P=0.004).  Use of artificial reproductive technologies was removed as apo... more »

Filtering the baby with the bathwater

This group from Dana-Faber found that the gene RNF43 is frequently mutated in colorectal and endometrial cancers.  Almost 20% of them, and more than half of a particular subtype.  It's an important result but one might ask, with all the tumour sequencing that has gone on in the last few years why did nobody find these mutations before?

Turns out that the mutations are commonly in gene regions (GC dinucleotide repeats) that commonly sequence poorly with today's instruments.  If the gene has six GC repeats the data will often show six repeats, but also some of the data will be seven repeats and some will be five:

This results in noisy data for that particular gene region, and there are many such regions in the genome.  So today's bioinformatic softwares will normally filter (remove) such regions assuming that they are technical artefacts.  However, whenever you filter the data to remove noise you risk tossing out real biological data too, something I try to emphasize whenever I teach students and residents (and physicians) about sequencing and sequence data analysis.___

Do you want to know your own genome sequence?

Here's an interesting little anecdote for the morning.  I follow James Hadfield's blog CoreGenomics for his interesting insights on the nitty gritty of running a bunch of sequencers.  James is the lab manager at Cambridge University's Genomics Core Facility and has a lot of experience with running sequencers and analyzing sequence data.  Anyway, in today's post he says this:

"_My genome has been sat in the freezer for over five years wanting to go onto a flow cell, but I've never been comfortable putting it on our own machines_."

So, here is someone who could (presumably) get his own genome sequence for free (i.e. run it as a "normal control" on an experiment) and has the expertise to understand it, and still won't.  I've noticed many others in similar situationsals... more »

Putting all your eggs in a basket, and then freezing it for a long time

From a genetics, and women's health, perspective I wonder if the money would be better spent on less-invasive options.  Longer paid maternity leaves, on-site daycare and more flexible work schedules I think would also help.  I'm not a women so I won't pretend to know what the best options are, but I find it hard to believe that oocyte cryopreservation was higher on the list than some of these options.  One wonders how many actual women and mothers were consulted when they came up with this solution.

23andMe providing health-related analysis (in Canada)

If you're Canadian you can purchase a 23andMe genotyping analysis and continue to receive a health-related interpretation of your results in addition to ancestry information.  The FDA ban on this service doesn't apply to the Canadian market and Health Canada regulates only the device itself (collection kit) and not the information provided.

So Canadians, go forth and discover your unexpected disease-allele carrier status!

Just how contagious is Ebola anyway?

This NPR infographic shows how contagious Ebola is compared to some other commonly known human diseases.  If the R0 for a disease is greater than 1 then it can spread to the wider population (i.e. at R0=2 then one person infects two, who infect four, then eight etc.).  

The post doesn't have references but some fact checking suggests that Ebola is generally considered to be in the 1-4 range.  These numbers are obviously just approximations based on recorded outbreaks and some hard-core epidemiology, and as you can imagine there will be huge variability at the single-person scale.  For reference, influenza appears to be in about the same 1-4 range.  And sure, people spread flu to their friends and coworkers frequently, but a big difference is that you're not contagious with Ebola unless you're symptomatic, and if you'resymp... more »

Also interesting to see how contagious measles is, considering the growing numbers of affluent, privileged parents that are choosing to not vaccinate their kids for this disease.  I wonder, if given the option of an Ebola vaccine, how many would continue to refuse.

Americans view Scientists as competent but not warm; worthy of Schadenfreude

An online survey of attitudes towards different professions places Scientists in the high-competence, low-warmth group.  I'm definitely considering re-training for a MD/PhD professorship at a nursing school. 

The fourth corner lists the ambivalently perceived high-competence, low-warmth, “envied” professions: lawyers, chief executive officers, engineers, accountants, scientists, and researchers. They earn respect but not trust.

People report envy and jealousy toward groups in this space. These are mixed emotions that include both admiration and resentment. Science communicators arguably need to know about this possible type of response to them.

What is more, other research indicates the risk inherent in being enviable. People rated other types of envied outgroup members (e.g., rich people). Participants reported feeling slightly good and not so bad, when mundane bad events (splashed by a taxi, sitting on chewing gum) happen to these groups. This malicious glee at others’ misfortunes is known as Schadenfreude. The same emotion also appears in electromyography of the cheeks’ smile muscles (zygomaticus major) when bad things happen to envied people. All other quadrants (ingroup, pitied groups, disgusting outgroups) elicit more happiness and smiling to good events rather than bad ones.

Companies are selling databases containing names and personal information associated with medical conditions they purportedly have or "have interest in" (with the implication that they have it but don't want to make that public").  

While it's not shocking that people are trying to sell this type of information (and it's not illegal to do so in the US unless it has been release from a healthcare provider without consent) I'm surprised that people are willing to pay so much for it.  The quality of the information must have huge variation from person to person, particularly considering some of the online data collection methods (search history, newsletter subscriptions, online posts).  For example, I could very well be on a list as having almost every major type of cancer, as well as most of thehi... more »

This is a very good point (as always) from Dr. Gorski.  Lumping topics like diet and exercise into "complementary and alternative medicine" just taints them by association with homeopathy and naturopathy. 

It is also difficult not to wonder whether the inclusion of lifestyle interventions, such as dietary interventions, exercise, and relaxation techniques, which arguably have been underutilized in medicine, in the same category as homeopathy, naturopathy, and spiritual interventions, lend by association the appearance of scientific plausibility to interventions that, from a basic science viewpoint, are incredibly implausible at best, while 'rebranding' more plausible non-pharmacological and nonsurgical treatments as alternative or integrative.

New mutations

What was notable about this child's case was that it involved a de novo mutation — one that neither parent carries in their regular complement of DNA. De novo mutations can occur early in the development of the embryo. They can be in parents' gametes. Around 80% of de novo mutations seem to occur in the father's sperm and 20% in the mother's egg

Use of and Mortality After Bilateral Mastectomy Compared With Other Surgical Treatments for Breast Cancer

This open-access paper in today's JAMA reports on the use of bilateral mastectomy as a treatment for breast cancer.  Actually, the procedure is most commonly both a treatment and a preventative measure (i.e. treating current disease while also attempting to prevent future disease).  

The authors studied the long-term outcomes of all newly diagnosed Stage 0-III breast cancers in California from 1998-2011 (approximately 190,000 patients).  They found that the rate of bilateral mastectomy increased from 2% to 12.3%, while in young women (under 40) the rate increased from 3.6% to 33%.  They also found that the 10-year mortality rate in patients undergoing this procedure (18.8%) was the same as that for patients receiving breast-conserving surgery plus radiation (16.8%). more »

Use of and Mortality After Bilateral Mastectomy Compared With Other Surgical Treatments for Breast Cancer

This open-access paper in today's JAMA reports on the use of bilateral mastectomy as a treatment for breast cancer.  Actually, the procedure is most commonly both a treatment and a preventative measure (i.e. treating current disease while also attempting to prevent future disease).  

The authors studied the long-term outcomes of all newly diagnosed Stage 0-III breast cancers in California from 1998-2011 (approximately 190,000 patients).  They found that the rate of bilateral mastectomy increased from 2% to 12.3%, while in young women (under 40) the rate increased from 3.6% to 33%.  They also found that the 10-year mortality rate in patients undergoing this procedure (18.8%) was the same as that for patients receiving breast-conserving surgery plus radiation (16.8%).  

The authors then discuss at length some of the possible reasons for this dramatic increase in the use of this procedure, particularly in young women (and those of higher socioeconomic status).  One such reason is the availability of BRCA1/2 genetic testing, since a positive genetic testing result is an evidence-based indication for this procedure and a young breast cancer is an indication for having the testing performed.

The authors state that one of the goals of this research is to encourage dialogue between patients and healthcare providers about treatment options:

In a time of increasing concern about overtreatment, the risk-benefit ratio of bilateral mastectomy warrants careful consideration and raises the larger question of how physicians and society should respond to a patient’s preference for a morbid, costly intervention of dubious effectiveness.___

Ebola might have our attention, but it’s not even close to being the biggest problem in Africa right now. Even Lassa fever, which shares many of the terrifying symptoms of Ebola (including bleeding from the eyelids), kills many more than Ebola – and frequently finds its way to the US."

Do you want to start running to improve your health but lack the free time required?  Good news - not that much free time is required!  

This study found that almost any running, even slowly for about 5-10 minutes/day, provided 30% and 45% lower adjusted risks of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, and added a 3 year life expectancy benefit.

So, get out there!

Great post by +Rajini Rao. Are viruses the future of antibacterial therapy?

The Enemy of My Enemy

✇ Nearly 125 years ago, a British bacteriologist observed that the holy waters of the Ganges and Yamuna had curious bactericidal properties, limiting the spread of cholera. It took another 20 years before two microbiologists independently proposed the existence of viruses. Observing small clearings on a lawn of dysentery-causing bacillus on an agar plate, d'Herelle coined the term bacteriophage for the virus that devours bacteria; now affectionately abbreviated to "phage".  

A Voracious Appetite: Found everywhere bacteria exist- in the soil, deep inside the earth's crust, within the bodies of animals and plants, and densely packed in the oceans, there are an estimated 1×10^8 different types of phages, each infecting only a specific type of bacteria.  Almost comical in appearance, a phage has its genetic material tightly packed into the capsid head, that can be injected through the stalk-like tail into the bacterial cell. Once inside, it can stage a peaceful coup (lysogenic) or burst open the bacterium (lytic) when it multiplies. It is estimated that there are up to 10^32 phages in our biosphere, destroying half the bacterial population every 48 hours! 

Microbe Hunters: d'Herelle and his fellow scientists were quick to grasp the potential of phages as antibacterials. After consuming a preparation to confirm its safety, he administered the phage to a 12-year old boy with acute dysentery. The boy fully recovered. This set off a golden era in the commercial production and use of phages, centered largely in eastern Europe and Russia. In the 1940's, companies like L'Oreal and Eli Lilly marketed products with catchy names like Bacté-coli-phage and Staphylo-gel! There were set backs (d'Herelle's science partner in Tbilisi was executed by Stalin) and with the discovery of antibiotics in the 1940's, Western scientists lost interest in this line of medical research. Unfortunately, most published studies (written in Russian or Georgian) are not accessible to the western world and clinical trials did not follow current protocols of controls, making them difficult to assess retrospectively. 

Evolutionary Arms Race: With growing resistance to antibiotics, a resurgence in phage therapy may be warranted. One advantage to phage therapy is that when bacteria develop resistance to a phage, we should be able to rapidly select (in a few days or weeks) for mutant phage versions in a tit-for-tat evolutionary arms race! Phage therapy is already around us in some form:the USDA has approved a phage spray (ListShield) that can be used on cheese, chicken, and processed meat to prevent infection with Listeria. Is this the start of a new phage in the way we treat bacterial infections? :)
