At the British Neuroscience Association's Festival of Neuroscience 2019, we pulled aside one of the BNA's credibility board, Dr Verena Heise to ask her about credibility in neuroscience, how she became involved in promoting it, and how other players in research can help advance the credibility cause.READ MORE
Kicking off "The Evolution of Proteomics" series is a pioneer of proteomics, Professor Ruedi Aebersold. Aebersold's research in quantitative proteomics has helped shape our understanding of how proteins function, interact and are localized in both normal and diseased states.READ MORE
The latest advancements in computer vision technology could be set to change the way we approach diagnostics. This rapidly evolving field uses artificial intelligence to help physicians better perform their analytical duties and improve their accuracy rate in diagnosis through medical imaging.
The human brain sequesters many mysteries. How does cognitive development take place? How does it help us learn? What causes brain diseases? An exciting venture involving researchers from Argonne National Laboratory, the University of Chicago, Harvard University, and Princeton University is preparing to unleash a $500-million supercomputer, dubbed Aurora, in the pursuit of these answers.READ MORE
A system capable of translating brain activity into synthesised speech by decoding the movements of muscles involved in vocalisation has shown its potential in a proof-of-concept experiment conducted by researchers at the University of California San Francisco.READ MORE
When developing diagnostic tests or evaluating results, it is important to understand how reliable those tests and therefore the results you are obtaining are. By using samples of known disease status, values such as sensitivity and specificity can be calculated that allow you to evaluate just that.READ MORE
Identical male twins Scott and Mark Kelly - both (now retired) NASA astronauts – spent one year apart as Scott travelled to and inhabited the International Space Station (ISS), whilst Mark stayed at home on earth. Researchers have gained valuable insights from the study results as to the physiological effects of space travel.READ MORE
From picking out cancerous tissue areas during diagnosis, to uncovering novel biomarkers of early detection, mass spectrometry has become an indispensable analytical technique in cancer research.READ MORE
