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.
Cocaine addiction is a chronic disorder with a high rate of relapse for which no effective treatment is currently available. Scientists from the Institut Pasteur, the CNRS, Inserm and the Paris Public Hospital Network (AP-HP) recently demonstrated that two gene mutations involved in the conformation of nicotinic receptors in the brain appear to play a […]
Tel Aviv University researchers suggest that carriers of the genetic mutations PiZ and PiS are at high risk for severe illness and even death from COVID-19. These mutations lead to deficiency in the alpha1-antitrypsin protein, which protects lung tissues from damage in case of severe infections. Other studies have already associated deficiency in this protein […]
A mix of ultrapotent antibodies from recovered COVID-19 patients has been shown to recognize and lock down the infection machinery of the pandemic coronavirus and keep it from entering cells. Each of the antibody types performs these overlapping tasks slightly differently. A low-dose of the antibodies protected against infection in animal studies.
A new study finds any alcohol use during pregnancy, even low levels, is associated with subtle, yet significant behavioural and psychological effects in children including anxiety, depression and poor attention.
Gamification is becoming increasingly common in educational settings, but can also be used in other fields such as health. Researchers at the Complutense University of Madrid and the University of Zaragoza have developed the Close2U application, which enables healthcare staff to monitor cancer patients' mood and physical discomfort using daily questionnaires. In return for the […]
Sometimes, the central nervous system harbours tumour cells that elude treatment and thus become one of the main sources of relapse. Research led by the Complutense University of Madrid has identified one of these locations in which the cells remain protected: the stroma of the choroid plexus, a structure in the brain ventricles responsible for […]
