Washington [US], October 12 (ANI): During a recent study, Technische Universitat Dresden neuroscientists discovered a novel, non-invasive imaging-based method to investigate the visual sensory thalamus, an important structure of the human brain and point of origin of visual difficulties in diseases such as dyslexia and glaucoma.
Washington [US], October 12 (ANI): A new research led by scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the National Oceanic, and Atmospheric Administration, and others significantly alter the prevailing understanding of how marine life influences clouds and may change the way scientists predict how cloud formation responds to changes in the oceans.
Washington [US], October 11 (ANI): Using the world's most powerful radio antenna, scientists have discovered stars unexpectedly blasting out radio waves, possibly indicating the existence of hidden planets.
London [UK], October 11 (ANI): New Research has shown that the full magnitude of the impact of smoke from seasonal fires in Central Africa and in particular, the potential climate warming from the absorption by the black carbon component of the aerosol, is underestimated by some climate models over the South-East Atlantic.
Washington [US], October 10 (ANI): A slew of new studies showed that the area of the brain responsible for initiating this action -- the primary motor cortex, which controls movement -- has as many as 116 different types of cells that work together to make this happen.
Washington [US], October 10 (ANI): According to the findings of new research, chemicals increasingly used as flame retardants and plasticizers pose a larger risk to children's brain development than previously thought.
Washington [US], October 10 (ANI): A lunar probe launched by the Chinese space agency recently brought back the first fresh samples of rock and debris from the moon in more than 40 years. Now an international team of scientists -- including an expert from Washington University in St. Louis -- has determined the age of these moon rocks at close to 1.97 billion years old.
Washington [US], October 9 (ANI): Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center and an international team of collaborators recently unlocked drug testing of hormone-sensitive human breast cancer through a mouse model.
Washington [US], October 9 (ANI): During a new study, Sainsbury Wellcome Centre researchers identified a new brain circuit in the ventral lateral geniculate nucleus (vLGN), an inhibitory structure in the brain.
Amsterdam [Netherlands], October 9 (ANI): The findings of a pilot study has found that depressed patients, who suffered from COVID respond better to standard antidepressants than people who haven't had COVID.
Washington [US], October 9 (ANI): Recently Cedars-Sinai researchers found that ageing produces significant changes in the microbiome of the human small intestine which is distinct from those caused by medications or illness burden.
Washington [US], October 9 (ANI): Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have found a way to make deep brain stimulation (DBS) more precise, resulting in therapeutic effects that outlast what is currently available.
New York [US], October 8 (ANI): The findings of a new study by Mount Sinai and UC San Diego researchers, for the first time, have shown how mutations affecting a cellular process called RNA splicing alter cells to develop myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and other hematologic malignancies and solid tumours.
London [UK], October 8 (ANI): During a recent study, the University College London-led research team identified an anti-viral gene that impacts the risk of both Alzheimer's disease and severe COVID-19.
Ottawa [Canada], October 7 (ANI): Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) are hopeful that a new understanding of cellular defects related to Cystic Fibrosis (CF) could help pave the way for the treatment of the disease.
Washington [US], October 7 (ANI): When you clicked to read this story, a band of cells across the top of your brain sent signals down your spine and out to your hand to tell the muscles in your index finger to press down with just the right amount of pressure to activate your mouse or trackpad.
