Zika babies may have a spectrum of brain damage beyond microcephaly
Much of the public alarm about Zika has focused on the dramatic, heart-breaking pictures of children with a condition known as microcephaly characterized by an abnormally small head. But a paper published Tuesday from the epicenter of the epidemic in northeastern Brazil shows that the damage to a baby's brain may be far more extensive and diverse than has been previously known.

Dolphins' Pouncey might miss opener because of hip injury (Yahoo Sports)
Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey has been sidelined by a left hip injury that could force him to miss the season opener. Pouncey was hurt in Friday's exhibition game at Dallas, and he'll likely sit out the final two exhibition games, coach Adam Gase said Sunday. ''We're still kind of feeling out what's going on,'' Gase said.
Dolphins' Pouncey could miss Week 1 due to hip injury
Another hip injury has put Mike Pouncey's status for the regular-season opener in question.The Miami Dolphins center will miss the remainder of the preseason as a result of the ailment, and it's possible that he could be forced to sit out Week 1, head coach Adam Gase announced Sunday.Pouncey underwent surgery to repair a right hip issue following the 2015 season. The latest injury, sustained in Friday's preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys, is to his left hip.Losing the captain of the offensive line would be a crushing blow for a Dolphins offense that takes on an ever-dominant Seattle Seahawks defense to kick off the season.It's unclear whether he's at risk of missing any time beyond Week 1, but Gase only mentioning the opener can likely be taken as an indication that his absence shouldn't extend long into the season.Pouncey, a first-round pick in the 2011 draft, enters his sixth season with 72 career starts and is coming off a third consecutive Pro Bowl appearance.Copyright © 2016 Score Media Ventures Inc.

Report: NFL dropping 'probable' injury designation
The NFL is getting rid of the "probable" injury designation this season, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.The designation was used to classify players who had suffered an injury, but were still "very likely to start in the upcoming week."It's almost unheard of for a player to be designated as "probable" and miss the game, making it an easy term to throw out of the rulebook. The change could create uncertainty as players with the slightest of injuries could now be listed as "questionable."The New England Patriots, among other teams, have built a reputation of pushing the limits of the injury designation, regularly listing players as "probable" or "questionable" with clearly playable injuries.Assuming no other changes to the designation system, injured players will be classified as either "questionable," "doubtful," "out," or "inactive" on the injury report prior to games this season.Copyright © 2016 Score Media Ventures Inc.

Vikings' Zimmer has 'no concern' about Bridgewater's injury
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says he has ''no concern'' about quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, after holding him out of the second preseason game as an injury precaution.Zimmer said Saturday that Bridgewater could have played Thursday at Seattle, but the coach decided to keep him out. Zimmer refused to characterize Bridgewater's condition, but ESPN.com reported Bridgewater has a sore shoulder.Bridgewater practiced in full pads Saturday, but didn't throw a pass. Backup Shaun Hill was given a rest, so Joel Stave took first-team snaps. With Taylor Heinicke on the non-football injury list, the Vikings signed Brad Sorenson for depth.Sorenson, a fourth-year pro, has played with San Diego and Tennessee. He was a seventh-round draft pick in 2013 by the Chargers from Southern Utah, but has not appeared in a regular-season game.Copyright © 2016 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved.

Startup aims to sell a brain implant to improve memory
For more than a decade, University of Southern California neuro-engineer Theodore Berger has been working on an artificial hippocampus, an electronic aid for the part of the brain that scientists believeencodes experiences as long-term memories. Now Berger and a new startup called Kernel are confident that the device is ready for prime time. "We’re testing it in humans now, and getting good initial results,” Berger told IEEE Spectrum. “We’re going to go forward with the goal of commercializing this prosthesis.” In Berger’s approach, electrodes in the hippocampus first record electrical signals from certain neurons as they learn something new and encode the memory. These electrical signals are the result of neurons “firing” in specific patterns. Berger studied how electrical signals associated with learning are translated into signals associated with storing that information in long-term memory. Then his lab built mathematical models that take any input (learning) signal, and produce the proper output (memory) signal. An implant could help someone whose hippocampus doesn't properly turn information into memories.An implanted memory prosthetic would have electrodes to record signals during learning, a microprocessor to do the computations, and electrodes that stimulate neurons to encode the information as a memory.For people who have difficulty forming lasting memories on their own, the prosthetic would provide a boost. “We take these memory codes, enhance them, and put them back into the brain,” Berger says. “If we can do that consistently, then we’ll be ready to go.”"New Startup Aims to Commercialize a Brain Prosthetic to Improve Memory" (IEEE Spectrum)

Payton: Rankins' injury 'clearly' not season-ending
While there's no exact timetable for his return, the New Orleans Saints expect to have rookie defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins back at some point this season.The Saints' 2016 first-round pick suffered a broken fibula Monday in practice. He'll need an estimated six-to-eight weeks to recover, but that span hasn't been confirmed by team or player.Head coach Sean Payton said Wednesday the injury "clearly is not gonna be season-ending at all," according to ESPN's Mike Triplett, and indicated he'll wait longer to decide whether Rankins will be placed on short-term injured reserve to start the season."It would all be based on the time frame of when we think he'll be ready," Payton said about placing Rankins on IR. "And that would be a little early to predict right now."If Rankins was placed on the short-term reserve, he wouldn't be eligible to return to game action until Week 9 of the regular season.Copyright © 2016 Score Media Ventures Inc.

Broncos' Wolfe helped off practice field with ankle injury
Denver Broncos defensive tackle Derek Wolfe was forced to the sidelines with an apparent leg injury during Wednesday's practice.Unable to put any weight on his left leg, Wolfe needed assistance to make his exit. Head coach Gary Kubiak later told reporters that the standout lineman rolled his ankle.If there's no additional damage, it could be considered positive news that Wolfe escaped with a sprain.The fifth-year veteran, who signed a lucrative contract extension during Denver's playoff run, remains an integral piece on what should once again be among the league's top defenses.Second-round rookie Adam Gotsis would be in line for an increased workload if Wolfe misses any significant time leading up to the regular season.Copyright © 2016 Score Media Ventures Inc.

Startup Aims To Commercialize a Brain Implant To Improve Memory
the_newsbeagle writes: Neuroscientist Ted Berger has achieved some remarkable feats in his work on an implanted brain prosthetic to boost memory. Working with rats, he recorded the electrical signals associated with a specific memory from one animal's brain, then inserted that signal -- and thus the memory -- into another animal's brain. Working with monkeys, the implanted device enhanced the animals' recall in difficult memory tasks. Still, it's startling to learn that a startup is ready to commercialize Berger's work, and is trying to build a memory prosthetic for humans suffering from Alzheimer's, brain injuries, and stroke. The new company, named Kernel, will fund human trials and develop electrodes that can record from and stimulate more brain cells. "An implanted memory prosthetic would have electrodes to record signals during learning, a microprocessor to do the computations, and electrodes that stimulate neurons to encode the information as a memory," writes Eliza Strickland via IEEE Spectrum.
