Ashleigh Schaffer, PhD, assistant professor of genetics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and a team of global genetics experts have discovered a genetic mutation and the faulty development process it triggers, causing a debilitating brain-based...
Many patients with neuropsychiatric disorders such as anxiety or depression experience negative moods that lead them to focus on the possible downside of a given situation more than the potential benefit. MIT neuroscientists have now pinpointed a brain region...
Researchers have found that a group of viruses that cause severe stomach illness -- including the one famous for widespread outbreaks on cruise ships -- get transmitted to humans through membrane-cloaked "virus clusters" that exacerbate the spread and...
Regular exercise between three and five times a week could help improve mental health – but too much could be detrimental, a study has said. Researchers found those who exercised had 1.5 fewer “bad days” a month than those who...
Approximately 2-3 % of children suffer from a condition called strabismus, which is more commonly known as "lazy eye" or "crossed eyes." The majority of cases are thought to involve both genetic and environmental factors. Knowing the genetic...
Metastasis, or the formation of secondary tumors, is a leading contributor to the vast majority of deaths related to cancer. The exact mechanisms for how broken cellular function appears in cells far removed from a cancer's primary tumor...
While today's technology is growing increasingly wireless, nature's greatest technology, the human brain, still depends on neurons being directly connected to one another. Two neurons are connected when one extends its axon to the other. This extension is...
Using just a microscope, Italian surgeon Francesco Durante was struck by the similarities between cells in the most malignant cancers and the embryonic cells of the organ in which the cancer originated. More than a century later, scientists at...
Researchers report in Nature Communications they figured out why air sacs in the lungs clog up with a thick substance called surfactant in a brutal disease called Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis (PAP), and they show taking cholesterol-busting pills called...
Effective therapeutics to counteract the formation of amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's disease and type 2 diabetes are not yet available. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now come a little bit closer to a solution:...
