A new study by researchers suggests that a certain detail from patients’ brain scans could help clinicians identify which people are more likely to relapse after cognitive-behavioral therapy — and why.
Study in mice suggests that stem cells in the brain may not be able to develop into many different cell types.
The pushback against soaring cancer drug prices is gaining steam. A leading doctors group on Monday proposed a formula to help patients decide if a medicine is worth it - what it will cost them and how much good it is likely to do.
Biomedical engineers have invented a new device that more quickly and accurately "listens in" on the chemical messages that tell our cells how to multiply.
Painful insulin injections could become a thing of the past for the millions of Americans who suffer from diabetes, thanks to a new invention from researchers who have created a “smart insulin patch” that can detect increases in blood sugar levels and secrete doses of insulin into the bloodstream whenever needed.
Gene previously linked to obesity is unrelated, says new study.
For the first time, a study has shown that infants with emerging autism at 15 months, and two years, can earlier—even at nine months—display enhanced visual searching ability.
Study provides deep insights into course, makeup of deadly disease.
Researchers discover that a protein called Taranis could hold the key to a good night's sleep.
While the Phase III portion of the pipeline is comparatively small, it is followed by a relatively large Phase II, indicating that there will be a sustained stream of products moving through the later development stages.
To the untrained eye, the graph looked like a very volatile day on Wall Street - jagged peaks and valleys in red, blue and green, displayed on a wall. But the story it told was not about economics. It was a glimpse into the brains of Shaul Yahil and Shaw Bronner, two researchers at a Yale lab, as they had a little chat.

Welcome to Bioscience Technology’s new series Bioscience Bulletin, where we bring you the five most popular headlines from the week.
North Korea — which has allegedly starved millions of its people and is unable to treat even modest medical problems such as cataracts — has a new drug on the market that it says can cure AIDS, Ebola and some cancers.
An amino acid whose role in the body has been all but a mystery appears to act as a potent seizure inhibitor in mice, according to a study.
Musicians don’t just hear in tune, they also see in tune. That is the conclusion of the latest scientific experiment designed to puzzle out how the brain creates an apparently seamless view of the external world based on the information it receives from the eyes.
Neuroscientists show that multiple cortical regions are needed to process information.
A new study has linked genetic variants which increase the risk of high blood pressure to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The research suggests a possible protective effect for treatments used to reduce blood pressure.
Happy memories can be re-activated in the brains of depressed mice, effectively bringing back the good times, according to MIT research released this week.
These three businesses had exhibits in an area of the convention center called BIO Metropolis.
Huntington’s disease attacks the part of the brain that controls movement, destroying nerves with a barrage of toxicity, yet leaves other parts relatively unscathed.
Research shows that certain T cells, immune cells that fight infection, can help to control influenza infections by targeting a core structural protein common to all strains of influenza .
Scientists have identified a single blood protein that may indicate the development of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) years before symptoms appear, a disorder that has been associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
DDT was a wonder pesticide, which turned the tide on everything from bed bugs to malaria-carrying mosquitoes during the 20th century. But even after its health and environmental effects were acknowledged and its agricultural use was banned in 1972, its toxic legacy continues, according to a new study.
Chocolate-lovers rejoice: new research says eating up to 100g of chocolate every day is linked to lower cardiovascular risks such as heart disease and stroke.
