Beta amyloid structure mapped in new Alzheimer’s research  NEWS MEDICAL · 5 days
In search of a possible cure for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), scientists have found out the molecular structure of a type of protein called beta amyloid that accumulates within brain cells, eventually killing... more
New research suggests another possible mechanism for Alzheimer’s  NEWS MEDICAL · 5 days
Neurofibrillary plaques and tau protein are among the most widely known pathological entities characterizing Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but new research at the University of California, Riverside, has come up with another plausible... more
Counterintuitive physics property found to be widespread in living organisms  PHYS.ORG · 5 days
Ever since the late 19th century, physicists have known about a counterintuitive property of some electric circuits called negative resistance. Typically, increasing the voltage in a circuit causes... more
Mapping the effects of drought on vulnerable populations  PHYS.ORG · 6 days
The greater frequency of droughts, combined with underlying economic, social and environmental risks, means that dry spells have an increasingly destructive impact on vulnerable populations, and particularly on children in the developing... more

Researchers test new drug to treat patients with chylomicronemia syndrome  NEWS MEDICAL · 1 week
People with familial chylomicronemia syndrome are born with a genetic mutation that means they can't produce an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase. more
Exploring genetic interaction manifolds constructed from rich single-cell phenotypes  Science Magazine · 1 week
How cellular and organismal complexity emerges from combinatorial expression of genes is a central question in biology. High-content phenotyping approaches such as Perturb-seq (single-cell RNA-seq pooled CRISPR screens) present an... more
A vicious cycle of {beta} amyloid-dependent neuronal hyperactivation  Science Magazine · 1 week
β-amyloid (Aβ)–dependent neuronal hyperactivity is believed to contribute to the circuit dysfunction that characterizes the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Although experimental evidence in support of this hypothesis continues to accrue,... more
Fewer cows, more trees and bioenergy  PHYS.ORG · 1 week
Combatting global warming will require major changes in land use, a new climate change report says. One important change could be decreasing the amount of land used to produce livestock—which means that people would have to... more
