Hippocampus Is the Brain’s Storyteller

People love stories. We find it easier to remember events when they are part of an overarching narrative. But in real life, the chapters of a story don’t follow smoothly one from another. Other things happen in between. A new brain imaging study from the Center for Neuroscience at the […]

Novel cellular mechanism sheds light on causes of childhood developmental disorder

A new study provides insights into the cellular mechanisms involved in Christianson syndrome, an X-linked genetic disorder characterized by delayed development, cognitive disability and epileptic seizures as well as difficulties with speech, balance and mobility. This research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, demonstrates how a cellular process known as […]

New tool predicts changes that may make COVID variants more infectious

As SARS-CoV-2 continues to evolve, new variants are expected to arise that may have an increased ability to infect their hosts and evade the hosts' immune systems. The first key step in infection is when the virus’ spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor on human cells. Researchers at Penn […]

Power of stem cells harnessed to create cartilage tissue

Researchers at the University of Southampton have invented a new way to generate human cartilage tissue from stem cells. The technique could pave the way for the development of a much-needed new treatment for people with cartilage damage. Cartilage acts as a shock absorber in joints, but it is susceptible […]

Restoration of Autophagy as a Goal in the Treatment of Aging

The processes of autophagy act to remove damaged molecular machinery and structures in the cell. Autophagy becomes dysfunctional with age, however. This is likely downstream of underlying causes of aging that cause changes in gene expression that degrade the function of autophagic processes in one way or another. For example […]

The Benefits of Calorie Restriction are Based on Calorie Intake, not Food Quantity

Researchers here note that reduction in the calorie content in the diet is the important trigger for the benefits of calorie restriction, not reductions in the quantity of food ingested. The practice of calorie restriction, reducing calorie intake while still obtaining optimal micronutrient intake, has been shown to extend life […]

Scientists find new way to reverse immune suppression in tumors

Malignant tumors can enhance their ability to survive and spread by suppressing antitumor immune cells in their vicinity, but a study led by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian has uncovered a new way to counter this immunosuppressive effect. In the study, published in Nature Cancer, the researchers identified […]

Withdrawal from Psychostimulants Restructures Functional Architecture of Brain

In mouse studies, single-cell whole brain imaging found methamphetamines, cocaine and nicotine all changed neural networks — a key to developing addiction treatments Addictive psychostimulants, from nicotine in cigarettes to illicit drugs like methamphetamine and cocaine, affect different regions of the brain. The same is believed true during withdrawal; finding […]
