    Female mosquitoes can distinguish a mix of four unique substances in blood

    Mosquitoes spread diseases like malaria, dengue, and yellow fever that kill at least a half a million people each year. Researchers are learning what people taste like to mosquitoesdown to the individual neurons that sense blood’s distinctive, flavorful taste. Female mosquitoes have a sense of taste that is especially tuned to detect a combination of

    Trial ALS drug shows potential to drag out patient endurance

    An experimental medicine that was recently shown to slow the progression of the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, has now demonstrated the capacity to also prolong patient survival. The findings come from a clinical trial conducted by investigators at the Sean M. Healey & AMG Center for ALS at Massachusetts

    Study uncovers new and basic subtleties of how photoreceptors work

    Moving around in the half-light is difficult but not impossible. To help us in this undertaking we have the rods, a type of light-sensitive cells (photoreceptors) present in the retina of vertebrates, capable of detecting very low lights that allow to move about even in poorly lit cellars or caves. They are biological wonders capable

    Free radicals might be significant for the brain to stay versatile

    Reactive oxygen molecules, also known as”free radicals”, are generally considered dangerous. Researchers from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) at TU Dresden published the findings in the journal Cell Stem Cell. The researchers focused on the”hippocampus”, a brain region that is regarded as the control center

    New information shows empowering results for patients with neuro-degenerative blinding eye illness

    New data published in the Journal Science Translational Medicine shows encouraging results in a worldwide clinical trial for patients diagnosed with the neuro-degenerative blinding eye disease; Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON. The disease is an inherited type of vision loss estimated to affect 1 in 30,000 to 50,000 individuals. LHON most often afflicts individuals with

    Enormous transporter protein dysfunction related with schizophrenia

    Researchers have suspected mutations in a cellular cholesterol transport protein are associated with psychiatric disorders, but have found it hard to show this and to pinpoint how it happens. Currently, Kazumitsu Ueda of Kyoto University’s Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) and colleagues in Japan have provided evidence that mice with disrupted ABCA13 protein demonstrate

    VR offers desire to nerve injury patients encountering chronic pain

    We all feel physical pain in various ways, but people with nerve injuries frequently have a dysfunctional pain reduction system, making them particularly prone to distress. Now researchers have found that virtual reality (VR) can reduce types of pain typically found in patients with nerve injuries – which VR can raise the dysfunctional pain suppression

    Imbalanced bacterial community in the gums connected to Alzheimer’s infection biomarker

    Older adults with more harmful than healthy bacteria in their gums are more likely to have evidence for amyloid beta–a key biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease–in their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), according to new research from NYU College of Dentistry and Weill Cornell Medicine. However, this imbalance in oral bacteria was not associated with another Alzheimer’s biomarker

    Basic dietary enhancement enhances schizophrenic traits in mice

    After additional experiments, including visualizing the fluorescently stained dancing advantage of brain cells, researchers concluded that the nutritional supplement likely protects proteins which build neurons’ mobile skeletons. The supplement betaine was initially isolated from sugar beets and is often associated with sweetness or umami flavor. Healthy levels of betaine come from both outside food sources
