Researchers have developed small molecules that inhibit one of the main enzymes implicated in autoimmune response. The research could lead to potential new medications for a range of autoimmune diseases.
Researchers report specific drugs designed to affect human appetite work to suppress the appetite of mosquitoes.
DIPG cancer cells exposed to MI-2 fail to maintain healthy levels of cholesterol and die quickly, by inhibiting lanosterol synthase. Additionally, while MI-2 destroys glioma cancer cells, the drug does not damage healthy brain cells.
A new microscopy technique integrates existing and novel approaches to build a clearer picture of the workings of neurons in the brain. The technique captures cellular activity across large tissue volumes in greater detail than previous techniques have allowed for.
A new technique dubbed light beads microscopy allowed researchers to generate a vivid functional movie of the near-simultaneous activity of almost a million neurons in the mouse brain.

Rockefeller researchers have developed a new diagnostic test that could help with early detection of disorders associated with olfaction problems, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
Researchers discover brain areas in primates exclusively dedicated to analyzing social interactions.
A new study reveals subplate cells may not simply disappear, they may, instead, be migrating to different levels of the cortex. In essence, subplate cells may become part of the cerebral cortex.
SARS_CoV_2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, can directly enter the nervous system. The virus can infect the brain, causing alterations in blood vessels and directly disrupt oxygen supply to the organ.
