Research led by scientists at Queen Mary University of London has provided new insights into why people often make unrealistic plans that are doomed to fail.
Two MRI findings--joint capsule edema and thickness at the axillary recess, specifically--proved useful in predicting stiff shoulder in patients with small to large (< 5 cm) full-thickness rotator cuff tears, according to an ahead-of-print article in the May issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR). This study is important because it is the first to highlight joint capsule abnormality on MRI as a factor associated with stiff shoulder in patients with full-thickness rotator cuff tears.
A storyline with emotionally evocative details can reduce virtual reality cybersickness for some people, according to a new study. Researchers from the University of Waterloo found that storylines that provide context and details can help users feel immersed in VR experiences and can reduce feelings of nausea, disorientation and eye strain, depending on a user's gaming experience.
A large proportion of highly active men watch more television than their low-active peers do. In contrast, highly active women watch less television than low-active women do.
Weightlifters could do less and get stronger by changing the amount they lift each session, according to new research. Sports scientists from the University of Lincoln, UK, compared the weight lifting amounts of athletes using a traditional one rep max method with athletes who adjusted their loads at each session, and found all those who tailored their weights became stronger despite lifting less overall during the six week period.
Time spent playing video games is often seen as time stolen from physical activities. Research has shown that exercise has many physical and cognitive benefits. But what if exercise could benefit video game performance as well? A new study led by neuroscientist Dr. Marc Roig and his research team from the School of Physical & Occupational Therapy at McGill University, found, for the first time, that it can.
Highly active adults engage in a greater variety of physical activities than do less active adults, finds a new study led by researchers at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. The study, published in the journal Translational Behavioral Medicine, also revealed that walking is the most common type of exercise, followed by cycling and dancing.
A hyperconnected world is changing the role and management of brands. New theories and models are needed to account for these changes.
New research shows that exercise addiction is nearly four times more common amongst people with an eating disorder.
Men are not better than women at spatial cognition -- such as map reading -- is the principal finding from ground-breaking work by researchers at Lero, the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Software, hosted at University of Limerick (UL), Ireland.
