Researchers have shown that moment-to-moment fluctuations in brain activity can reliably predict whether patients with social anxiety disorder will be receptive to cognitive behavioral therapy.
Brain Activity After Trauma May Predict Mental Health Outcomes
The way a person’s brain responds to stress following a traumatic event, such as a car accident, may help to predict their long-term mental health outcomes.
Investigating Why Small Cell Lung Cancer Is So Aggressive
The Human Tumor Atlas Network was created to develop high-resolution maps of many kinds of cancer so that doctors could have a more complete view of the textured terrain of tumors, including how they become more deadly. The first such atlas for small cell lung cancer is now ready for viewing.
The Neuroscience of... Creativity
Given the scale of human ingenuity, it has been no mean feat for science to define and study the neural basis of the creative process. In this article, the latest in our “The Neuroscience of…” series, we investigate the research that has attempted to understand where creativity emerges in the brain and why it exists in the first place.
Uncovering Key Interactions Between Cancer-Driving Proteins
Research conducted as part of the Cancer Cell Map Initiative (CCMI), has revealed interactions between cancer-driving proteins, that were unknown, until now. Findings were published in three separate papers in Science.
Bioelectric Assay Identifies Potential COVID-19 Therapeutic Targets
Bioelectronic assays extend our ability to quickly study interactions between cells, viruses, and therapeutics in real time over days, in one plate, without interference by labels or tags. This article highlights how the effect of various therapeutics on the cell-killing behavior of SARS-CoV-2 was assessed using a bioelectronic assay.
A Note to the Vaccinated: Thank You and Be Reassured
Recent headlines sparked fear after discussing waning immunity to SARS-CoV-2 after vaccination. In this op-ed, immunologist Michael Kinch addresses the subject of the articles and explains why it is normal for antibody levels in the blood to wane over time.
