Multiple Sclerosis Is Likely Caused by a Virus, Finds Study of 10 Million Military Personnel
The demyelinating neurodegenerative disease multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complication of infection by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), suggests a new study published in Science by researchers at Harvard Medical School.
Researchers Put Volunteers in a Haunted House To Study Threat Response
Dilated pupils, sweating, and a rapid heartbeat are some of the responses that people experience when faced with a threat. New research used the immersive experience of a haunted house to reveal that these responses differ depending on the social context and other factors.
Cheaper EEG Device Could Drive "Home Lab" Movement
Scientists have developed a device for recording brain activity that is more compact and affordable than the solutions currently on the market.
Targeting Bone Cells To Stop Blood Cancers
To stop acute myeloid leukemia, targeting neighboring bone cells could be a better strategy than directly targeting the cells that give rise to the disease.
Yale Scientists Track Lifespan and Functions of mRNA
It took a global pandemic, but the critical role of messenger RNA in all of life’s functions has taken center stage in the past year with the successful rollout of mRNA vaccines to combat the SARS-Cov-2 virus.
AI Technology Can Accurately Diagnose COVID-19 in Minutes
X-ray technology, in combination with AI deep learning, has been shown to accurately diagnose COVID-19 in minutes.
Bilateral Tumor Model Created To Investigate Anticancer T-Cell Responses
Scientists have shown that a bilateral tumor model could be useful to investigate the relationship between T-cell repertoire and the therapeutic effects of cancer immunotherapy.
Humidity Sensor Inspired by a Camel's Nose
Scientists have designed a camel nose-inspired humidity sensor that can reliably detect variations in humidity in settings including industrial exhausts and the air surrounding human skin.
Antibody Drug for COVID-19 Passes Phase 2 Clinical Trial
A new drug that targets the cytokine storm associated with severe COVID-19 disease has passed its phase two clinical trial.
The Role of Ribosomes in Age-Related Diseases
Research finds that the production of proteins can stall with age, increasing the output of misfolded proteins that contribute to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
Multimodal Transistor Successfully Demonstrated in Artificial Neural Networks
Researchers at the University of Surrey have successfully demonstrated proof-of-concept of using their multimodal transistor (MMT) in artificial neural networks, which mimic the human brain.
