A human is an ability to eat, to walk, to memorize, to think, to rightly express your moods. Then he goes to work as electrician, musician, physicicist, physician, etc. All these human activity is generated by human society, government.
WHERE IS A PURE MAN? Do we think about ourselves (our memory, thinking, why do we live, why do we do such action, etc) frequently? NOT AT ALL! We immersed in highly complicated "whirlpool" оf self-preservation of ourselves, our children, our parents, our relatives, our MONEYS, etc. Our self-preservation is so complicated that we have no time to think on other subjects. So we are ants, we get commands and we just execute it. That is essence if our life - we do what we do not understand but we are in hurry to make it on time! All it is a comedy.
Besides Shakespeare`s phrase "all the world is a theater" I say all the world is comedy.

On 21-22-23 June 2023, the Milan Medical School of Ambrosiana University promoted an International Conference in streaming, on the subject:
The paradigm change of medicine: the epistemological and scientific basis
of Person-Centered Medicine
This conference is aimed to underscore the urgent need for overcoming Medicine's current wrong and obsolete deterministic-mechanistic-biological paradigm based on the linear causality toward the assumption in Medical Education, Clinics, and Public Health of the right indeterministic person-centered paradigm of human nature, Medicine, medical science, and health.
Call for papers on the following topics:
EPISTEMOLOGY AND MEDICINE, ALLOSTASIS PHYSIOLOGY, EPIGENETICS PSYCHO-NEURO-ENDOCRINE-IMMUNOLOGY, PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGY, NEUROBIOLOGY, MEDICAL ETHICS, PERSON-CENTERED MEDICINE, PERSON-CENTERED HEALTH, PERSON-CENTERED PSYCHIATRY, MEDICAL EDUCATION, WHO and HEALTH DEFINITION, SOCIAL PSYCHIATRY
If you have an interactionist approach to behavior and affectivity quality, PNEI, neuromodulation, and epigenetics you are welcome.
Deadline: June 10, 2023

I am the Editor in Chief of Iberoamerican Journal of Medicine (www.iberoamjmed.com). We are looking for someone or a group which may help us to be indexed in WoS. Anybody knows? Thank you in advance
I would like to know how I can filter better my research. Every time the website shows me 100 pages and most of the articles are not related to what I am interested in. I usually write, for example, "children" AND "medicine" AND "narrative". Is it right? Or is there another way to search here?
Thanks in advance!
Hello RG Community,
I recently received an email from "Oncology Editorial Committee" of "Medical Research Archives".
Dear Dr. Muhammad Haseeb,
I wanted to get in touch with you about your liver cancer work. I enjoyed your article "[Redacted]" and was wondering what further research you have done on this topic. This year I am helping to create a special theme issue titled New Perspectives on Liver Cancer which will be published in the official journal of the European Society of Medicine. Your work could be a valuable addition to the theme issue and I hope you would be willing to discuss the possibility of preparing an article.
Is this something you might consider? Best Regards,
Section editor Oncology Editorial Committee Medical Research Archives European Society of Medicine ISSN: 2375-1924 NLM (PubMed) ID: 101668511

A lot of people complain about expensive drugs, and the drug companies tell you that the reason for this is "the cost of development" and in particular "clinical trials". Before I tell you my idea, I must tell you that I am not a doctor and a complete amateur in every sense.
Now, to my idea. At the same time as we have expensive drugs people complain about power structures in academia, large publication gateways and huge tuition fees that prevent access to research and knowledge.
What if these two factors were seen as one problem? You widen the entrance at the same time as you drastically increase the subsidies for clinical trials, thus relieving drug companies of their alibi. When I say widen the entrance, I mean compulsory open access publication for certain types of projects and public domain and creative commons patents. So you pay less for research and also for clinical trials.
(If you like my idea, I also have a patent for a perpetual motion machine.)
During my clinical life as MD, psychiatrically I deduced that "Almost 99 % of declared child-geniuses are due to both parents are rich & borderline/schizophrenic so their child(ren) is/are genious for them forcing these children even get masters and PhD degrees in unreliable way in unaccredited institutes while at teen ages." These borderline/schizophrenic parents must be seriously treated psychiatric clinics otherwise they can ruin not just their lives but also their children severely ! Prodigiousness in childhood in music or in arts are possible, I have no doubt in that at all, but not masters (MA/MS) &/or doctorates (PhD) at chilhood !
I'm currently writing a paper comparing medical students' impression of evolutionary biology prior to and after my country's adoption of a new K-12 curriculum that includes an explicit class discussing the foundational concepts of evolutionary biology. As a student who also plans to go into medicine, I would just like to know if mastering foundational evolutionary concepts is really important in studying classes like pathology?
As a newcomer, where can I find a list of potential international research grants with their timeline for PhD studies in medicine and cancer fields? Additionally, where can I find an example of an appealing grant proposal that includes an effective budgeting plan?
How does cactus pollen work as a cancer medicine ?
Are there any risks or side effects associated with using pollen grains as a cancer medicine ?
Why and how is this kind of long-term potentiation (LTP) possible?
Is LTP even needed for all sorts of synaptic plasticity and long-term memory formation?
Long-term potentiation (LTP which is necessary for synaptic plasticity and long-term memory formation) needs repeats and reinforcement of the engrams to be triggered.
However, apparently everybody automatically "absorbs" a lot of information immediately and also permanently, even without needing any extra effort (at least any conscious effort), which seems to be needed for LTP to happen. Everyone seems to have this ability, although it is even stronger in those with better memories.
People simply "learn" many things once; and many of those learned items remain there for a pretty long duration, and in many cases even for the rest of their lives. This seems to happen without any repeats, at least without any apparent or conscious efforts to remember or re-remember those memories. This is the case for a lot of semantic information (especially the information of interest or importance to the person) as well as a large portion of the contents of episodic memory.
Why and how is this kind of LTP possible?
Perhaps attention plays a major role here, e.g., being interesting and important automatically triggers LTP without a further need for repeats.
But such effortless long-term memorization happens also in the case of a lot of semantic information or autobiographical events that are not inherently interesting or significant to the person.
Is LTP even needed for all sorts of synaptic plasticity and long-term memory formation?
What is this curious non-updatable mega memory? Does it have any scientific terms?
What are its causes and mechanisms?
I have had the honor of witnessing very rare people who have some strange forms of mega memory: They effortlessly, automatically, and immediately memorize many difficult things such as phone numbers or their difficult and comprehensive books, etc. And they retain those easily captured memories for a very very long time (a couple of decades at least), without any smallest effort or reinforcement. Not to mention that they record or remember almost everything else (semantic or episodic) quite easily, and also with a lot of details. Furthermore, they are very very accurate in recalling those items. For example, they can serve as pretty reliable living phone books; or for example, they are extremely awesome at medicine, etc.
But when I am talking about "strange", I don't mean their super-human ability to easily capture such vast amounts of information for such long durations and recall them accurately.
Their super-human ability is of course strange. But the even stranger part of their memory is that once it is captured, it cannot be updated or revised easily. For example, if they misunderstand something the first time, it will take perhaps 10 or 20 attempts over days or weeks for their colleagues to remind them of the mistake and ask them to correct their misunderstanding.
It is like that once their memory is formed the very first time, it is set in stone. It is absorbed very efficiently and strongly, and at the same time, not much prone to future updates.
What is this curious non-updatable mega memory? Does it have any scientific terms?
What are its causes and mechanisms?
Interestingly, the EIC of @JCompEffRes wrote to me that they ”we will be contacting the authors to discuss whether a correction notice [for the following paper doi/10.2217/cer-2022-0031by @magdalena zeglen @tomasz brzostek] is appropriate” even though the letter to the editor was denied publication. The EIC said “the criticism in the Letter is not valid” but when I asked for a list of examples in which points I made are not "valid", I received no response. Another example of silencing a constructive debate on #evidencebasedmedicine #evidencebasedpractice #systematicreview #evidencesynthesis #Parkinson’sDisease #Opicapone
I have the pleasure of sharing the letter here.
Any comments regarding the alleged “lack of valid points”, highly welcomed. Best wishes, Pawel Posadzki, PhD
How do you think artificial intelligence can affect medicine in real world. There are many science-fiction dreams in this regard!
but how about real-life in the next 2-3 decades!?
please try to describe it on the lines of medicine and under the shade of socio psychological conditions
Please spread the word: Folding at Home (https://foldingathome.org/) is an extremely powerful supercomputer composed of thousands of home computers around the world. It tries to simulate protein folding to Fight diseases. We can increase its power even further by simply running its small program on our computers and donating the spare (already unused and wasted) capacity of our computers to their supercomputation.
After all, a great part of our work (which is surfing the web, writing texts and stuff, communicating, etc.) never needs more than a tiny percent of the huge capacity of our modern CPUs and GPUs. So it would be very helpful if we could donate the rest of their capacity [that is currently going to waste] to such "distributed supercomputer" projects and help find cures for diseases.
The program runs at a very low priority in the background and uses some of the capacity of our computers. By default, it is set to use the least amount of EXCESS (already wasted) computational power. It is very easy to use. But if someone is interested in tweaking it, it can be configured too via both simple and advanced modes. For example, the program can be set to run only when the computer is idle (as the default mode) or even while working. It can be configured to work intensively or very mildly (as the default mode). The CPU or GPU can each be disabled or set to work only when the operating system is idle, independent of the other.
Please spread the word; for example, start by sharing this very post with your contacts.
Also give them feedback and suggestions to improve their software. Or directly contribute to their project.

When staining with hematoxylin and eosin of a muscle biopsy from a patient with T341P desminopathy, we observe accumulations of inclusions similar to nuclei (arrows in figures 1 and 2, x280). And outside of these accumulations - adipose tissue, which used to be muscle tissue. There are no such massive accumulations of inclusions in adjacent muscle fibers. We assume that clusters of inclusions are not nuclei? Figure 2 is the inverted figure 1.
In most contexts, the terms alternative medicine, complementary medicine, integrative medicine, holistic medicine, natural medicine, and unconventional medicine are almost synonymous.
Heyer et al. in their recent paper "Remdesivir-induced emergence of SARS-CoV2 variants in patients with prolonged infection" published in Cell Reports Medicine have reported that remdesivir treatment can result in rapid fixation of newly acquired mutations. They have also noted that "Treatment-associated evolutionary bottlenecks promote emergence of novel variants". It's great to see that the validity of our early hypothesis has been confirmed by other researchers. We strongly believe that the "Remdesivir-induced emergence of SARS-CoV2 variants" is the dark side of the antivirals such as remdesivir that needes further investigation.

Before Covid and After Covid there has been long debate on adoption of appropriate Pedagogy techniques to improve teaching learning environment in Universities. Various concepts are suggested from blended learning to flipped, experiential, project based learning.
However, the technique has to be program based as to whether your program is History, Geography, Engineering or Medicine will decide which one is better or all these can be applied to subjects under consideration.
Another challenge is assessment and measurement of learning outcomes to improve pedagogy which should be in confirmation with the pedagogy adopted by the Teacher.
I think teaching community has to deliberate on these issue at great length and arrive at general consensus or the difference will prevail for all times to come!

The problem is in the second treatment group we had a higher value. In such cases what are the other applicable statistical methods to find the optimum level.
So, we usually leave the CaOH intracanal medicament for 14 days and then finish the final obturation. I am keen to know if this time-interval can be reduced by addition of Silver nanoparticles/TAP to CaOH, maybe reduce it from 14 days to 7 days or even 10 days?
Has there any research been done on this?
While I am crossing two paths, such as medicine and technology, I see that there are often barriers to understanding the two, but I want to know from the researchers who deal with both what challenges still exist.
Hi, I would like to know what is the type of study for the following research:
- The researcher conducted a descriptive study of medication errors in a hospital over 3 years. The number and characteristics of medication errors were the comparison sample.
- The researcher implemented a medication error mitigation program.
- Then the researcher studied the number and characteristics of medication errors in the 3 years before the implementation of the mitigation program. And these results were compared with the 3-year sample prior to implementation.
What is the type of study for this research?
- Role of Artificial Intelligence in Neuro disorders
- Hidden patterns
- Parallel working disruptions
- AI and Medicine overlap
Is there any study showing that computer work causes increased eye pressure, a symptom representative of Glaucoma?
I have personally talked with several eye doctors, but they told me that it had not been proven so far. So, I am seeking such new researchers in this regard.
Hello everyone! I am currently applying for postdoc positions, and I have been running into problems with finding a PI's faculty e-mail address. I am running this issue a lot when looking into PIs affiliated with their home university's school of medicine. For example, there are many PIs in the NYU Grossman School of Medicine who I would like to contact for possible positions, but I cannot find their e-mail addresses listed on their faculty page. The only contact information listed is a phone number for a specific treatment facility. (ex: "call this number to reach the cancer center")
Can someone please give me some advice? How can I find the corresponding e-mails for publications written by a PI's lab?
I would love to receive some recommendations from experts in regards to the topic, whether there are valid findings in research on biological markers for anxiety disorders. I am trying to gain some stable insight and be able to argue in favor of the notion, that no anxiety disorder "comes from a malfunction/sickness of the brain".
Thank you in advance!

I am here for specific answers or a list of investigation tools to determine the newly developed drugs/inhibitors/medicines.
A patient with desminopathy survived Covid-19 six months ago without pneumonia, but with a temporary loss of smell and taste. After Covid-19, we note an accelerated progression of desminopathy, penetration accelerates, new muscles are quickly involved in the pathological process, muscle mass decreases, and heart function worsens. Perhaps the infection or its consequences are somehow connected with the mechanism of progression of desminopathy?
A patient with desminopathy (mutation Thr341Pro DES in a heterozygous state) with the progression of the disease has a decrease in taste and smell, immunosuppression, and an increase in IgA in the blood.
Oddly enough, but all this is characteristic of infections, including viral ones. For example, it is known that if the hepatitis C virus is not treated, then death will occur in 20 years.
In the identified case of late onset desminopathy, muscle weakness manifests itself at the age of 30, and death occurs 20 years after the onset of the disease.
Could the desmin mutation in myofibrillar myopathy be caused by an infection?
Perhaps the infection contributes to the progression of desminopathy?
I am working on a study in which I have to write values of medications taken in one day. But in prescriptions BID, QD and QWeekly is written. How do I interpret the medicines taken in one day?
Why cant there be a journal dedicated to the field of medicine which does not yet have any experimental basis much like theoretical medicine?
To save life in desminopathy, can the body purposefully reduce muscle mass, for example, due to decreased heart function or for another reason?
It is known that when hypothermia, the body sacrifices limbs for survival. Is it possible with desminopathy a similar phenomenon?
Hello everyone, for my master thesis I investigate the acceptance of AI in medicine from patient side and therefore conduct a study. I would be thankful if someone of you would like to fill out the questionnaire, to help me out investigating this important topic. Thank you!

With an increasing number of countries implementing digital health and digital public health tools, questions arise about whether these tools are effective and how to implement them best nationally. The lack of a validated and standard list of indicators complicates the comparison of digital health maturity between countries. We need guidance for governments in setting up strategies for the effective implementation and adoption of digital public health tools in routine care and the prevention of diseases.
To address this challenge, we want to invite researchers and practitioners from medicine, public health, economics, computer science, law, cultural studies, sociology, or other comparable disciplines. Participants should know about the development, implementation and evaluation of digital public health systems to take part in a Delphi study to choose the leading quality indicators to assess the maturity of national digital public health systems from four perspectives:
1. The information-telecommunication-technology requirements
2. The political support and legal regulation for the implementation and use of health technologies and the generated data
3. The application of concrete digital health tools to the national health system
4. The collective social willingness to use these tools
We are using a snowball approach to reach as many experts as possible. Please join our effort by participating in this Delphi study https://bit.ly/3raMsVY. Please forward this message to all your mailing lists of colleagues that might fit the purpose of this study. Every participation will be greatly appreciated and contribute to a better understanding of international digital public health systems.
This Delphi study will be conducted within the German Leibniz ScienceCampus Digital Public Health research project entitled "Developing a Maturity Measurement Model for Digital Public Health: The Digital Public Health Readiness Index".
Best regards and take care,
(on behalf of the digital public health readiness index team and the EUPHA Digital Health Section)

Complex systems are becoming one of very useful tools in the description of observed natural phenomena across all scientific disciplines. You are welcomed to share with us hot topics from your own area of research.
Nowadays, no one can encompass all scientific disciplines. Hence, it would be useful to all of us to know hot topics from various scientific fields.
Discussion about various methods and approaches applied to describe emergent behavior, self-organization, self-repair, multiscale phenomena, and other phenomena observed in complex systems are highly encouraged.
In my previous question I suggested using the Research Gate platform to launch large-scale spatio temporal comparative researches.
The following is the description of one of the problems of pressing importance for humanitarian and educational sectors.
For the last several decades there has been a gradual loss in quality of education on all its levels . We can observe that our universities are progressively turning into entertaining institutions, where students parties, musical and sport activities are valued higher than studying in a library or working on painstaking calculations.
In 1998 Vladimir Arnold (1937 – 2010), one of the greatest mathematicians of our times, in his article “Mathematical Innumeracy Scarier Than Inquisition Fires” (newspaper “Izvestia”, Moscow) stated that the power players didn’t need all the people to be able to think and analyze, only “cogs in machines,” serving their interests and business processes. He also wrote that American students didn’t know how to sum up simple fractions. Most of them sum up numerator and denominators of one simple fraction with the ones of the other, i.e. as they did it, 1/2+ 1/3 according to their understand is equal to 2/5 . Vladimir Arnold pointed out that with this kind of education, students can’t think, prove and reason – they are easy to turn into a crowd, to be easily manipulated by cunning politicians because they don’t usually understand causes and effects of political acts. I would add, for myself, that this process is quite understandable and expected because computers, internet and consumer society lifestyle (with its continuous rush for more and newer commodities we are induced to regard as a healthy behavior) have wiped off young people’s skills in elementary logic and eagerness to study hard. And this is exactly what the consumer economics and its bosses, the owners of international businesses and local magnates, need.
I recall a funny incident that happened in Kharkov (Ukraine). One Biology student was asked what “two squared” was. He answered that it was the number 2 inscribed into a square.
The level and the scale of education and intellectual decline described can be easily measured with the help of the Research Gate platform. It could be appropriate to test students’ logic abilities, instead of guess-the-answer tests which have taken over all the universities within the framework of Bologna Process which victorious march on the territories of former Soviet states. Many people can remember the fact that Soviet education system was one of the best in the world. I have therefore suggested the following tests:
1. In a Nikolai Bogdanov-Belsky (1868-1945) painting “Oral accounting at Rachinsky's People's school”(1895) one could see boys in a village school at a mental arithmetic lesson. Their teacher, Sergei Rachinsky (1833-1902), the school headmaster and also a professor at the Moscow University in the 1860s, offered the children the following exercise to do a mental calculation (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:BogdanovBelsky_UstnySchet.jpg?uselang=ru):
(10 х 10 + 11 х 11 + 12 х 12 + 13 х 13 + 14 х 14) / 365 = ?
(there is no provision here on Research Gate to write square of the numbers,thats why I have writen through multiplication of the numbers )
19th century peasant children with basted shoes (“lapti”) were able to solve such task mentally. This year, in September, this very exercise was given to the senior high school pupils and the first year students of a university with major in Physics and Technology in Kyiv (the capital of Ukraine) and no one could solve it.
2. Exercise of a famous mathematician Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855): to calculate mentally the sum of the first one hundred positive integers:
1+2+3+4+…+100 = ?
3. Albrecht Dürer’s (1471-1528) magic square (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_square)
The German Renaissance painter was amazed by the mathematical properties of the magic square, which were described in Europe firstly in Spanish (the 1280s) and Italian (14th century) manuscripts. He used the image of the square as a detail for in his Melancholia I painting , which was drawn in 1514, and included the numbers 15 and 14 in his magic square:
16 3 2 13
5 10 11 8
9 6 7 12
4 15 14 1
Ask your students to find regularities in this magic square. In case this exercise seems hard, you can offer them Lo Shu (2200 BC) square, a simpler variant of magic square of the third order (minimal non-trivial case):
4 9 2
3 5 7
8 1 6
4. Summing up of simple fractions.
According to Vladimir Arnold’s popular articles, in the era of computers and Internet, this test becomes an absolute obstacle for more and more students all over the world. Any exercises of the following type will be appropriate at this part:
3/7 + 7/3 = ? and 5/6 + 7/15=?
I think these four tests will be enough. All of them are for logical skills, unlike the tests created under Bologna Process.
Dear colleagues, professors and teachers,
You can offer these tasks to the students at your colleges and universities and share the results here, at the Research Gate platform, so that we all can see the landscape of the wretchedness and misery resulted from neoliberal economics and globalization.
What is the best (or at least the most commonly used in medicine) way to put a Pearson's correlation coefficient into (strong, medium, weak) categories?
 strong (0.7 - 0.89), medium (0.5 - 0.69), weak (0.3 - 0.49)
 strong (0.6 - 0.79), medium (0.4 - 0.59), weak (0.2 - 0.39)

Casodex (or bicalutamide) is available only as a racemic mixture (S and R enatiomers): 1) the pharmacologically active R (-)-enantiomer, and 2) S-Casodex, the inactive (+) enantiomer. The S-enantiomer is thus the non-working compound but is also metabolized at a much lower rate. In other word, much higher plasma levels are the result. Does anybody know if casodex can increase emotional instability/anxiety? And which enantiomer is causing this?
I submitted my manuscript to one of the Lancet Journals. The status remained as “submitted to Journal” till mid February.After that it changed to “Decision in Process”. The status has remained so till April. I have also written to the journal thrice but did not receive any reply from them. I am very confused about the status of my manuscript. There seems to be no option to retract the manuscript too. My mentor is not allowing me to contact the Ombudsman.
I have previously submitted manuscripts twice to Lancet journals but they Would make an editorial decision within 3 days.
Is the current case just a technical glitch or are they pondering over my manuscript? What are the chances of a positive response from the journal based on my case? Also how do I go about the situation?
I want to find some medicines which have the neuroprotection effects, as i hope that it has been researched in other diseases but not the field i am researching now. I know maybe i could find the suitable medicine if i have read many related papers, but is there another way to find it? Thanks.
Severe andor resistant chronic urticaria is a terrible disorder.

I am working on my MSc dissertation, investigating breast protection bras for female boxers. I am looking at their protection but also the fit and shaping of them and how this relates to their comfort during wear. Is there any sort of classification of the shape of women's breasts? How would I describe the natural breast shape?
The recent changes in the COVID-19 epidemic have led to the emergence of a new SARS-CoV-2 Variant of Concern (VOC), named "Omicron," and the number of Omicron cases were consistently increasing around the world. The health professional's knowledge is of utmost importance to prevent and control the spreading of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Variant of COVID-19. In this regard, we would likely to know the level of knowledge and Perceptions of health professionals about the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Variant; this can provide a greater opportunity to understand the existing knowledge gaps about the novel Omicron variant and to scale up the interventional strategies. Thus, I invite you to participate in this short survey and provide your
valuable opinion regarding the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant.
Thanking you in advance
