Using computational methods, researchers created artificial proteins that triggered immune responses and produced infection specific antibodies. The findings indicate it will be possible to design vaccines that contain artificial antibodies, expediting the process of vaccine development.
Examining wastewater is helping researchers track coronavirus infection trends. The waste reflects the viral load excreted by a population within a few hours and can help establish COVID-19 community hot spots. While researchers will not be able to calculate the exact number of community cases of coronavirus by examining wastewater, they can trace the increase of SARS-CoV-2 concentration and track the level of infection rate.
A new study sheds light on the mechanisms behind metacognition and how we make sense of the world around us.
Researchers have identified some of the key neurobiological mechanisms that help keep aggression under control. The findings could help develop targeted treatments to help those with aggressive problems associated with psychological disorders.
According to researchers, 10% of young children have trouble learning to write. EPFL researchers have developed new software that can analyze a child's writing disability and the cause with precision.
Using the Full Body Illusion test, researchers discover those with schizophrenia do not have an impaired sense of body ownership. The findings contradict other theories which state those with schizophrenia may feel as though their bodies do not belong to themselves.
