Brain Organoids Show How Viruses Can Impair Development

Human Brain Organoids (HBO) stained for the human neural progenitor cell (hNPC) marker Sox1 (magenta) showing infection by Zika virus (left, green) and by Herpes Simplex Virus 1 (HSV-1, right, in green). These models were used to uncover the mechanisms used by these two viruses to cause microcephaly during pregnancy. Credit: Krenn/CellStemCell/IMBA.

Alteration of Schroedinger's Cat Experiment Has Implications for Predicting the Future

News

Quantum mechanics is famous for its indeterminism, but we can usually use probabilities to quantify our uncertainty about future observations. However, a team of researchers has recently shown that in certain extreme quantum scenarios it is not possible to make such probabilistic predictions, provided that certain key assumptions of quantum mechanics hold true.
