Researchers uncovered the critical role in pain processing of a gene associated with a rare disease. Their breakthrough, published in The Journal of Neuroscience, paves the way for a better understanding of chronic pain conditions.
Neurologists from all over the world converged in Washington D.C. last week, with an estimated 13,000 attendees meeting at the 67th annual American Academy of Neurology conference to learn about new research in the field.
Last year’s Ebola scare might provide a blueprint for a response to the unthinkable: a bioterrorist attack in the U.S., some experts are saying. A House of Representatives subcommittee last week discussed what the domestic response – and over-response – may teach emergency responders in a “low probability” but “high-consequence” event.
Northern New England's annual amphibian migration is always perilous, but critters that cross roads to breed are facing an additional challenge this year: a delayed start after the long winter.
The BlotCycler from Precision Biosystems offers an automated system for performing western blots with high sensitivity and low background noise.

Researchers have captured the first 3D video of a living algal embryo turning itself inside out, from a sphere to a mushroom shape and back again. The results could help unravel the mechanical processes at work during a similar process in animals, which has been called the “most important time in your life.”
A new study has discovered the trigger behind the most severe forms of cancer pain.
Technology could lead to new way of doing ‘lab on a chip’ medical diagnostics.
Animal model of breast-to-brain cancer spread allows testing of therapeutic-cell approach.
A recent analysis of long-term after-effects of a specific hormone replacement therapy (HRT)—non-physiologic hormones created by Wyeth—finds that a pattern observed while women took the drugs during the famous Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) remains true years later.
Aalborg Instruments’ upgraded Mass Flow GFM Meters and GFC Controllers, designed respectively to read or set gas flow rates, now include upgraded features that enhance the products’ performance without impacting the cost. Compact and self-contained, both product lines offer instrumentation grade ±1% accuracy for models up to 100 liters.
Farrah J. Mateen, M.D., from Cambridge, Mass., is the grand prize winner of the 2015 Neuro Film Festival, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) has announced.
