The stiffness of the surface on which stem cells grow can have a profound influence on the cell fate, a new study reports.
Researchers discover a surprising degree of variation among the genomes of individual neurons taken from the same brain.
Researchers suggest serotonin metabolism in the pineal gland could play a role in the underlying cause of depression. The findings were based on biochemical changes which were seen to be in association with improvements in depression.
Researchers have captured the structural dynamics of the mitochondrion using fluorescent probes. This mapping could provide insights into the underlying causes of neurodegeneration associated with mitochondrial malfunction.
Using sophisticated imaging techniques, researchers observe a molecular protein folding process which could help better understand and treat neurodegenerative diseases and cancers.
Researchers uncover clues about the biochemical pathway in the brain which could expand treatment options for schizophrenia.
Researchers discover a connection between the quantity of CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain and PTSD.
Just like people, some proteins have characteristic ways of “walking,” which (also like human gaits) are not so easy to...
