Hippocampus Cell Atlas Shows How Head Injuries Lead to Brain Diseases

How Head Injuries Lead to Brain Diseases

Traumatic brain injury causes changes in how cells communicate with one another. This image shows which cell types are communicating with other cell types (different colors represent different cell types). The left image shows the control group of mice and the right image shows the mice with the brain injury. Credit: Douglas Arneson/UCLA



How Socio-economic Migration Affects DNA Patterns in the UK


A major new study reveals how socio-economic migration within the UK has affected the geographic distribution of human DNA linked to traits such as education levels and health.


Strategy Could Help Treat Behavioral Abnormalities Linked to Autism


Researchers report in Nature Medicine a potential new treatment strategy for autism spectrum disorder – for which many cases are linked to mutated PTEN. Now, using Pten-deficient mice, researchers discover that a previously unexplored pathway goes “awry” in the brain, and by “rescuing” this pathway, it is possible to reverse behavioral and neurophysiological abnormalities.


Real Texture for Lab-grown Meat


Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have grown rabbit and cow muscles cells on edible gelatin scaffolds that mimic the texture and consistency of meat, demonstrating that realistic meat products may eventually be produced without the need to raise and slaughter animals.
