A new android named Nikola will help researchers study facial expressions, emotions, and social interactions.
A new method of water electrolysis avoids rare metals, making hydrogen production green and sustainable.
Levels of the peptide amylin in the brain are related to loneliness; activating amylin neurons in the MPOA drives isolated mice to seek social contact.
Cancer drugs assembled inside the body on cancer cells should reduce harmful side effects to other tissue.
A new retinal transplant technique works by preventing bipolar cells from maturing in lab-grown retinal sheets.
Scientists show that the free-energy principle can explain how neural networks work.
Scientists find that antimatter reacts to gravity the same way that regular matter does.
A method for making super-flexible and ultra-thin wearable electronics uses water-vapor plasma to create gold-gold bonds.
Reducing the amount of starch branching enzymes in cassava plants made more resistant and thus healthier tapioca starch.
Drug therapy with with diazoxide relieved symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in the brains of mice and improved memory.
By imaging the brain while zebrafish “swim” in virtual reality, scientists have learned that even fish can create internal models to predict future outcomes.
Researchers used a postnatal supply of GLP to reverse neural and behavioral symptoms of Kleefstra syndrome in mice!
Fast and sensitive: A new antibody test for the COVID-19 virus. Just a pinprick of blood and results in 30 minutes.
A new piezoelectronic microinjection method has allowed the first successful genome editing in marsupials: albino opossums.
A mutation in a gene needed for H3K9 methylation is directly linked to autism spectrum disorders and early neurodevelopment.
A new breed of lab mouse allows the study of naturally occurring melatonin. These mice will adjust better to jetlag than regular lab mice and experience daily torpor.
The calcitonin receptor and its ligand amylin act in the brain to motivate mouse mothers to protect their pups, even in risky/dangerous situations.
