Model for Anticipating Viral Transmission Could Help To Optimize Disease Control MeasuresNews
Researchers propose a mathematical model to better understand the dynamics of the interactions between microorganisms within hosts and their transmission ability. The framework was applied on transmission data of the influenza virus, and offers to be a new tool for anticipating the consequences of microbial diversity and optimizing disease control measures.

160 Genes Linked to Brain Shrinkage in 45,000-Person StudyNews
A new study implicates 160 genes in brain shrinkage seen on MRIs of 45,000 healthy adults. The shrinkage is in the cortex, the dimply outer layer of the brain that gives rise to thinking, awareness and action, and largely consists of gray matter.
A new study into the causes of sensorimotor impairments prevalent among autistic people could pave the way for better treatment and management in the future, say psychologists.
