Restoring the ability to walk following spinal cord injury requires neurons in the brain to reestablish communication pathways with neurons in the spinal cord, Mature neurons, however, are unable to regenerate their axons to facilitate this process. New research in mice shows one potential route to overcome this limitation may be by targeting liver kinase B1 (LKB1) protein.
With machine learning systems now being used to determine everything from stock prices to medical diagnoses, it's never been more important to look at how they arrive at decisions. A new approach out of MIT demonstrates that the main culprit is not just the algorithms themselves, but how the data itself is collected.
