Researchers have uncovered the structure of Glycine Transporter 1, it enables the uptake of glycine into neurons and acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. This new information could open new avenues for developing therapeutics for psychiatric disorders.READ MORE
Researchers have developed a lifetime microplastic exposure model that accounts for variable levels from different sources and in different populations. The new model indicates a lower average mass of microplastic accumulation than previous estimates.READ MORE
Scientists have detailed how they developed and used a computational model to simulate cell division, cell migration and apoptosis in the hope of understanding how these processes affect the development of the brain.READ MORE
New technology suggests that using electronic deterrents could be a valid approach to reducing the incidence of shark bites.
A study has examined the pollution risk to soil, the atmosphere and groundwater from agricultural pesticides. The study has shown that 64% of the world's farmland is at risk.READ MORE
Accurate simulation of the interactions between atoms and molecules can take a long time, however, the third release of a set of parameters to speed up the process has been presented.READ MORE
Anyone signed up to a streaming app will have felt the bemusement of being recommended some odd outlier track by the clandestine algorithms behind the service. A new study suggests that some music fans will receive poorer recommendations than others.
Researchers have used artificial intelligence to generate novel, functionally active proteins. The future applications could include the faster and more cost-efficient development of protein-based drugs.READ MORE
