Could Ketamine Help Tackle Gambling Addiction?
Recruitment is now underway for a first-of-its-kind study investigating the potential of ketamine to fight gambling addiction. The new research will look to explore whether ketamine’s effect on human memory might be leveraged to break down the “superstitious thinking” that is common in gambling addiction, as well as lessen the general habit or compulsive urge to gamble.
TrueLive3D Imager Light-Sheet Microscope
Optimized for fast 3D multi-sample volume imaging of delicate live specimen in their native 3D environment, the TruLive3D Imager is especially suited for multi-position imaging of small embryos (e.g., mouse), 3D spheroids, organoids, oocytes and more, enabling time-lapse, high-throughput imaging experiments.
Too Hot to Handle: Sensory Researchers Win 2021 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine
American researchers David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian have been awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.
Neural "Noise" May Signal Psychiatric Treatment Efficacy
Researchers have shown that moment-to-moment fluctuations in brain activity can reliably predict whether patients with social anxiety disorder will be receptive to cognitive behavioral therapy.
Brain Activity After Trauma May Predict Mental Health Outcomes
The way a person’s brain responds to stress following a traumatic event, such as a car accident, may help to predict their long-term mental health outcomes.
The Neuroscience of... Creativity
Given the scale of human ingenuity, it has been no mean feat for science to define and study the neural basis of the creative process. In this article, the latest in our “The Neuroscience of…” series, we investigate the research that has attempted to understand where creativity emerges in the brain and why it exists in the first place.
Western Blot Procedures, Analysis and Purpose
There are many reasons you may need to determine the presence (or absence) and size of a given protein within a sample, potentially against a background of many others. The western blot is one such technique that offers these capabilities. In this article, we discuss what western blots are, how they are performed, what they show us and how they differ to related techniques.
Teach Me in 10 Hub Page
At Technology Networks we understand the importance of time. That's why we've launched Teach Me in 10 a video series that challenges scientists to present and summarize their research area, a scientific concept, or technology in ten minutes or less.
Electron Microscopy Techniques, Strengths, Limitations and Applications
Electron microscopy has harnessed the power of physics to allow us to see beyond the limits imposed by visible light. In this article, we explore how electron microscopy works, some of the common techniques and applications and ways the field continues to push the boundaries.
The Neuroscience of... Birth
Our new series, The Neuroscience of… explores how the brain orchestrates the critical events and behaviors of human life. In this article, we take a look at the numerous changes affecting a mother’s brain before and after birth, and then consider why so little research has been conducted on the brain during birth.
Flow Cytometry Capabilities Guide
Flow cytometry enables the simultaneous analysis of multiple proteins, gene expression, and cell functions from an individual cell. This technology makes it possible to obtain a statistically relevant amount of data.
