Five Things to Know About How Orexin Affects Stress Resilience

What’s going on inside our bodies and brains when we respond to stress? Previously, we covered research into powerful little neuropeptides called orexins that may help regulate an individual’s vulnerability to stress. Now, we dug into fresh research from the lab of Seema Bhatnagar, PhD, an associate professor in the division of Stress Neurobiology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and conducted by Laura Grafe, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow.

We Push the Boundaries of Science When Research Fields Intersect

Our researchers whose work is at the cross section between injury and neurodevelopmental or intellectual disabilities have a unique vantage point when studying the driving safety of adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The Research Institute is home to two of the most highly regarded autism and pediatric injury research centers in the world.

Researchers Recreate the Womb Experience to Transform Care of Very Premature Infants

Every child begins life in a paradise built of biological wonders. The umbilical cord tethering the fetus to her mother’s placenta not only enables the exchange of blood gases in place of breathing air, but it also permits her to float and rotate within the warm incubating amniotic fluid while it delivers her every nutritional need as she grows ready for independent life.

Could Noninvasive Eye Imaging Safely Detect Elevated Intracranial Pressure, Without Surgery?

Taking light-wave images of the retina through a process called optical coherence tomography (OCT) shows promise as a safe, noninvasive way to identify elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) in children with subacute conditions such as tumors, hydrocephalus, or head trauma.
