Real-Time Visualization of Joint Cavitation
"Cracking sounds emitted from human synovial joints have been attributed historically to the sudden collapse of a cavitation bubble formed as articular surfaces are separated. Unfortunately, bubble collapse as the source of joint cracking is inconsistent with many physical phenomena that define the joint cracking phenomenon. Here we present direct evidence from real-time magnetic resonance imaging that the mechanism of joint cracking is related to cavity formation rather than bubble collapse."
Nail Biting: Mental Disorder Or Just A Bad Habit?
"Do you bite your nails? For 30 years, I did. We nail biters can be "pathological groomers" - people for whom normal grooming behaviors, like skin picking or hair pulling, have become virtually uncontrollable. But psychiatry is changing the way it thinks about pathological grooming, and these changes will be reflected in the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders."
