Washington [US], July 17 (ANI): Within our body, the vascular system provides a constant flow of nutrients, hormones and other resources, thus ensuring efficient transport. Researchers Komal Bhattacharyya, David Zwicker, and Karen Alim recently investigated in which way such a network is able to adapt and change over time.
Washington [US], July 17 (ANI): When we learn a skill, like riding a bike or looking both ways before crossing the street, we rarely need to learn it again. The majority of research on learning and long-term memory in wild animals focuses on a handful number of species.
Washington [US], July 17 (ANI): A new study finds that incoming speech sounds are connected by our brain to our knowledge of grammar, which is quite abstract in nature. But the big question is how does the brain process complex grammatical structures?
Washington [US], July 17 (ANI): James Webb Space Telescope's latest photographs demonstrate that it is not just capable of seeing cosmic objects that are far away from Earth. On Thursday, NASA unveiled Webb's first images of the solar system, which included Jupiter and whirling asteroids.
Washington [US], July 16 (ANI): A preliminary study has shown that screening sperm may help identify potentially harmful new genetic mutations and help fertility specialists prevent them from being passed on to offspring.
Washington [US], July 16 (ANI): To gain a better understanding of the effects of domestication and cohabitation with humans on sleep phenotypes and physiology, comparing the dog to its wild counterpart, the wolf, offers a unique opportunity.
Washington [US], July 16 (ANI): Neuroengineers have created wireless technology to remotely activate brain circuits. Researchers showed they could control the behaviour of freely moving fruit flies using magnetic signals that activated genetically engineered neurons causing the flies to perform specific behaviours.
Washington [US], July 16 (ANI): New research shows the loss of the male sex chromosome as many men age causes the heart muscle to scar and can lead to deadly heart failure. The finding may help explain why men die, on average, several years younger than women.
Washington [US], July 16 (ANI): A new study explores differences in the duration of immunity to SARS-CoV-2 from vaccines and natural infection based on waning antibody levels and demonstrates the need for booster vaccination in curtailing breakthrough infections and reinfections.
Washington [US], July 15 (ANI): Researchers at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) and Georgia Tech have developed a methodology that they think cracks the code to why coastal glaciers are retreating, and in turn, how much can be attributed to human-caused climate change.
Washington [US], July 15 (ANI): A new mouse model that might revolutionize the development of therapies targeting brain inflammation caused by Rift Valley Fever virus (RVFV), has been identified by virologists from the University of Pittsburgh.
Washington [US], July 15 (ANI): A new study revealed that when attempting to avoid an unwanted thought, people frequently reject and replace it after it occurs. However, avoiding an association proactively can be much more efficient and help prevent the repetitive looping of unwanted thoughts.
Washington [US], July 15 (ANI): Researchers have created a liquid biopsy test, which uses two circulating proteins, to test for major liver diseases. The test was found to be highly accurate, sensitive, and specific for both NASH and liver fibrosis.
Washington [US], July 14 (ANI): Health economics researchers have confirmed a causal relationship between lead-in-water and adverse fetal health outcomes. Although many studies have found a correlation between lead exposure and health, a causal link had been lacking in the literature until now.
Washington [US], July 14 (ANI): In a study that followed preterm infants for seven years, investigators found that children who received greater quantities of maternal milk both during and after time in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) had greater academic achievement, higher IQs and reduced ADHD symptoms.
