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



Rearranging Chromosomes – Does It Affect Their Function?


Molecular biologists long thought that domains in the genome’s 3D organization control how genes are expressed. After studying highly rearranged chromosomes in fruit flies, researchers now reveal that while this is the case for some genes, their results challenge the generality of this for many others.


Put Down That Flyswatter: Insects Feel Pain Too


Scientists have known insects experience something like pain since 2003, but new research published today from Associate Professor Greg Neely and colleagues at the University of Sydney proves for the first time that insects also experience chronic pain that lasts long after an initial injury has healed.


Gaining Insight Into Sun-induced DNA Damage and Cell Repair


A team has published a breakthrough article that provides a better understanding of the dynamic process by which sunlight-induced DNA damage is recognized by the molecular repair machinery in cells as needing repair.
