Standard versions of this screening process would have only been able to pinpoint ovarian cancer in less than half of this group.
Scientists find a single molecule that controls the fate of mature sensory neurons.
Researchers are seeking to make computer brains smarter by making them more like our own.
Scientists have discovered that a brain protein has a key role in controlling binge drinking in animal models. They found that deleting the gene for this protein in mice ramped up alcohol consumption and prevented the brain from signaling the rewarding properties of alcohol.
There is an urgent need to develop global surveillance against the threat to public health caused by antimicrobial resistant pathogens, which can cause serious and untreatable infections in humans.
More than 25 million people rely on Adderall and other similar drugs to help treat narcolepsy, depression and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But how does amphetamine, the active ingredient in Adderall, work? This week, Reactions from the American Chemical Society explains how amphetamine helps you focus.
Research sheds light on how addictive drugs interfere with the dopamine transporter, expected to usher in long-sought advances in treatments
GlaxoSmithKline and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill are teaming up to run this operation.
It has been hailed as the equivalent of Google Maps for the human body by The New York Times, and now the award-winning mobile-friendly platform BioDigital Human is looking to change the way healthcare information is shared, consumed and understood.
New study reveals how important neurons find their way from the retina to the inner brain.
Researchers say a new epilepsy drug holds promise as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease.
Neuroscientists pinpoint neurons that help primates tell faces apart.
In case you missed any exciting news on Bioscience Technology last week, here is a round-up of the top five most popular stories.
A new type of blood test is starting to transform cancer treatment, sparing some patients the surgical and needle biopsies long needed to guide their care.
Watson, the supercomputer seen on Jeopardy, will play an important role in this partnership.
The translation of extracellular vesicle research to the clinic to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of many disease types will require the development of standard assays for their characterization and quantification. The challenge of such analysis lies in the submicron size (generally 50-1000 nm in diameter) of each vesicle, as well as the complexity of the biofluids in which they are typically suspended.
It takes two minutes for this test to find the parasite.
For the first time, Ebola has been discovered inside the eyes of a patient months after the virus was gone from his blood.
Your genes may influence how sensitive you are to emotional information, according to new research. The study, recently published in The Journal of Neuroscience, found that carriers of a certain genetic variation perceived positive and negative images more vividly, and had heightened activity in certain brain regions.
New research suggests it may be possible to predict an infant’s progress following surgery for congenital heart disease by analyzing a number of important small molecules in the blood.
An international team of scientists, led by researchers at McGill and Concordia Universities in Montreal, discovered what could become a way for humans to re-set their ‘biological clock’ without light. This could lead to breakthroughs in treating a wide range of issues, from sleeping disorders to jetlag.
Disease-modifying treatments and novel symptomatic therapies with innovative mechanisms of action will enter the arena during the forecast period and become routinely used in care.
The goal of the study was to see how transcranial direct current stimulation affected IQ scores.
Comprehensive study of EGCG, a compound found in green tea, could lead to treatments of Alzheimer’s in humans.
