Melbourne [Australia], July 30 (ANI): During a recent study, researchers found a gene that enhances muscular strength when activated by physical activity. This can open the door for the creation of therapeutic therapies that mirror some of the advantages of exercise.
Tokyo [Japan], July 29 (ANI): The location of consciousness in the brain may be becoming more clear to science. A recent study demonstrates the significance of specific brain connections in defining consciousness.
Washington [US], July 29 (ANI): The amount of time, effort, and money needed to train ever-more-complex neural network models are soaring as researchers push the limits of machine learning. Analogue deep learning, a new branch of artificial intelligence, promises faster computation with less energy consumption.
Washington [US], July 28 (ANI): A new class of glioma medications takes advantage of tumours lacking the DNA repair enzyme MGMT; the medications cause the generation of cytotoxic DNA and kill tumour cells specifically without the risk of developing resistance, according to research.
Washington [US], July 28 (ANI): A new analysis explores relationships between domestic cats' hormone levels, gut microbiomes, and social behaviors, shedding light on how these solitary animals live in high densities.
Washington [US], July 28 (ANI): Neuroscientists have investigated the reciprocal interactions between two brain regions that represent visual working memory in mice. The team found that communication between these two loci of working memory, parietal cortex and premotor cortex, was co-dependent on instantaneous timescales.
Washington [US], July 27 (ANI): According to a new study, black patients have a dramatically higher risk of advanced vision loss after a new diagnosis of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) when compared to white patients.
Washington [US], July 27 (ANI): Researchers have produced definitive evidence that a specific region in the brain, called the subthalamic nucleus, is critical to governing the mind's communication with the body's motor control system. The findings, stemming from innovative experiments with humans, could yield advances in treatment for Parkinson's disease.
Washington [US], July 27 (ANI): NASA has completed the system requirements review for its Mars Sample Return Program, which is nearing completion of the conceptual design phase.
During this phase, the program team evaluated and refined the architecture to return the scientifically selected samples, which are currently in the collection process by NASA's Perseverance rover in the Red Planet's Jezero Crater.
Washington [US], July 27 (ANI): A study has revealed that the WHO advisory group suggested that the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan, China played an important role in the amplification of the pandemic, and investigations into it is recommended.
Bangalore (Karnataka) [India], July 27 (ANI): A new study discovered that bumblebees can modulate behavior to negotiate a trade-off between the perception of harmful stimuli and the pursuit of food. Mammals can modulate their responses to noxious stimuli, such that pain perception does not interfere with pursuing other motivational goals. However, insects are thought to respond to damaging stimuli in an inflexible, context-independent manner.
Washington [US], July 26 (ANI): According to an international study, dinosaurs and pterosaurs had high metabolic rates, suggesting they were endothermic, i.e., capable of self-regulating their bodily temperature.
Washington [US], July 26 (ANI): Some naturally-occurring lake bacteria grow faster and more efficiently on the remains of plastic bags than on natural matter like leaves and twigs. The bacteria break down the carbon compounds in plastic to use as food for their growth. The scientists said that enriching waters with particular species of bacteria could be a natural way to remove plastic pollution from the environment.
Washington [US], July 26 (ANI): During a recent study, a new diagnostic method could help identify one of the deadliest types of interstitial lung disease (ILD) sooner, allowing for faster treatment and improved patient outcomes.
Washington [US], July 26 (ANI): PPPL researchers have found a way to build powerful magnets smaller than before, aiding the design and construction of machines that could help the world harness the power of the sun to create electricity without producing greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
Washington [US], July 26 (ANI): Planetary scientists have an answer to a mystery that's puzzled the Mars research community since NASA's Curiosity rover discovered a mineral called tridymite in Gale Crater.
