All in a Droplet: Atomic Resolution of ALS Protein Resolved

The hnRNPA2 protein forms liquid droplets in a test tube as seen by light microscopy. These structures let the researchers test how disease mutations and functional modifications change the behavior of the proteins with atomistic detail. Credit: Veronica Ryan/Brown University



Using Big Data to Reduce the Risk of Stroke


People with irregular and abnormally fast heart rates caused by a condition called atrial fibrillation could be at a greater risk of stroke and bleeding because they are not receiving optimal treatment, warn scientists from UCL and The University of Hong Kong (HKU).


Skype Helps Beat the Blues


Social isolation and depression have become commonplace in older adults, with estimates suggesting almost 5 percent of adults aged 50 and above lived with major depression in 2015. What if you could address the problem through communication technology?


The Brain's Two Clocks


Anticipatory timing is controlled by two clocks in the brain, one dependent on memories from past experiences and the other on rhythm. Both are critical to our ability to navigate and enjoy the world. New research shows the neural networks supporting each of these timekeepers are split between two different parts of the brain, depending on the task at hand.
