With COVID-19 testing limited, we don't have enough data on the virus to know how widespread the diseases will ultimately become, or how long social distancing measures will last.
Researchers report there are two distinct ways in which we make temporal predictions, and these rely on different parts of the brain. The findings offer a new perspective on how humans calculate when to make a move.
Researchers set forth a new summary of the forms gender bias can take and propose a new checklist to remedy the problems they discovered.
Couples who share positive experiences marked with humor and affection, and whose heart rates sync up, enjoy better health outcomes and live longer than couples who are more quarrelsome.
Researchers have developed the smallest volume, most efficient wireless nerve stimulator to date. The device may be used to monitor and treat diseases in real time, researchers report.
A synthesized small-molecule drug blocks the TGF-beta receptor in astrocytes and traverses the blood-brain barrier in mice. When administered, the drug lowered receptor activity to that seen in younger mice and reduced inflammation. The aged mice were able to navigate mazes and learn spatial tasks as well as younger mice.
A new study challenges the long held theory that neurons in the brains of those with autism receive too little inhibition or too much excitation. Researchers report inhibition does not actually decrease in the brains of mice with ASD. Instead, researchers say, the altered balance may be a compensatory mechanism that helps to stabilize brain activity in response to the disorder.
Immunization with the vaccines for pneumococcal conjugate and rotavirus reduces the rates of acute respiratory infections and gastrointestinal infections in small children, thus reducing the need for antibiotic medications. Researchers say if universal childhood vaccination is achieved, an additional 40 million cases of antibiotic-treated illnesses could be prevented each year.
