What is the effect of pregnancy on brain activity at rest?

During pregnancy, women experience various changes in their bodies and behavior. A recent Nature Communication The study evaluated pre- and post-pregnancy brain scans to better understand changes in gray matter architecture, diffusion measures of neuronal metabolite concentration, and temporal coherence of neural networks. Additionally, the biological factors associated with these changes were assessed in this …

Weaker bones in hypermobile EDS may be motivated by limited activity…

Lower bone density and mineral content may be common in people with hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS), possibly due to reduced physical activity, a study indicates. “Based on the results of this study, we suggest that healthcare workers recommend, as in healthy people, regular physical activity and muscle strength training in people with hEDS and G-HSD. …
