Scientists reveal how the brain may fuel intense neural communication
October 5, 2020
In an in-depth study of neurons grown in laboratory petri dishes, researchers discovered how neuronal synapses find the energy to support intense communications bouts thought to underlie learning and memory.
Rare genetic form of dementia discovered
October 2, 2020
A new, rare genetic form of dementia has been discovered by researchers. This discovery also sheds light on a new pathway that leads to protein build up in the brain -- which causes this newly discovered disease, as well as related neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's Disease -- that could be...

Exosome treatment improves recovery from heart attacks in a preclinical study
September 29, 2020
Research in pigs shows that using the exosomes naturally produced from a mixture of heart muscle cells, endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells -- which were all derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells -- yields regenerative benefits equivalent to the injected human induced pluripotent s...

First ‘pathoconnectome’ could point toward new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases
September 29, 2020
Scientists have achieved another first in the field of connectomics, which studies the synaptic connections between neurons. The lab has produced the first pathoconnectome, showing how eye disease alters retinal circuitry.
Deep learning model provides rapid detection of stroke-causing blockages
September 29, 2020
A sophisticated type of artificial intelligence (AI) called deep learning can help rapidly detect blockages in the arteries that supply blood to the head, potentially speeding the onset of life-saving treatment, according to a study.
Prototype graft, designed to replace damaged heart vessels, shows promise in cell study
September 29, 2020
Researchers reported promising preclinical findings for a prototype of a vascular graft designed as a replacement for a damaged or blocked coronary artery, which supplies blood to the heart.
Heating in vaping device as cause for lung injury, study shows
September 28, 2020
Early results of an experimental vaping study have shown significant lung injury from e-cigarette devices with nickel-chromium alloy heating elements.
Epigenetic drivers for Alzheimer’s disease uncovered
September 28, 2020
New findings suggest that late-onset Alzheimer's Disease is driven by epigenetic changes -- how and when certain genes are turned on and off -- in the brain.
