The Electric Signals That Make the Human Brain UniqueNews
Neurons in the human brain receive electrical signals from thousands of other cells, and long neural extensions called dendrites play a critical role in incorporating all of that information. Using hard-to-obtain samples of human brain tissue, MIT neuroscientists have now discovered that human dendrites have different electrical properties from those of other species.
How Can We Make Behavioral Science More Reproducible?Article
A scientist explains how, by making 'stock' behavioral tasks more accurate, we can improve reproducibility.Read more
Through the Looking Glass of Single Cell ProteomicsArticle
To pick apart the differences between individual cells in complex multicellular organisms, we need to look at cells one-by-one. This article takes a look at how several scientists in North America are using single cell proteomics (SCP) technologies to discern disease pathogenesis and enhance directed stem-cell differentiation.Read more
Exploring the Public’s Perception of Food FraudArticle
When you go to the shops to buy the weekly groceries, it’s quite likely you’ll find yourself thinking about where your food has come from. Is this organic? Is that free-range? You are perhaps less likely to find yourself wondering, “Is this food fake?”Read more
