This article argues against the treatment of Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with stimulant medication and behavior therapy, which are also typically reimbursed by healthcare insurers. Evidence suggests that these treatments fail to result in sustained benefit for the vast majority of children who receive them as demonstrated in the NIMH-funded MTA Cooperative study, the gold standard study in ADHD treatment effectiveness research. The authors instead look at the use of neurofeedback which is uniquely suited to treat the neuronal dysregulation that is common in people diagnosed with ADHD. However, healthcare insurers do not regularly cover this treatment method, so the authors direct readers to resources to appeal insurers' denial of coverage for neurofeedback.

This opinion article focuses on the possibility that ROS are beneficial to plants, supporting cellular proliferation, physiological function, and viability, and that maintaining a basal level of ROS in cells is essential for life.
This article describes the design of a dual-wavelength achromatic metasurface-based deflector deflecting the incident wave to the same direction at two selected wavelengths, which has circumvented the critical limitation of strong wavelength dependence in the planar metasurface-based devices caused by the resonant nature of the plasmonic structures.
This article investigates how preincubation egg storage conditions (temperature, duration, hypoxia, and hypercapnia) affects viability, body mass, and physiological variables and functions in day 15 chicken embryos.
