Researchers from the UT Southwestern Medical Centre have identified the characteristics of more than 100 memory-sensitive neurons that play a central role in how memories are recalled in the brain.
A novel analysis of atmospheric images and data has found that global warming makes long-lasting weather situations in the Northern hemisphere's summer months more likely, which in turn leads to more extreme weather events.
Biomedical engineers of Duke University have developed a test to quickly and easily assess how well a person's neutralizing antibodies fight multiple variants of COVID-19 like Delta and the new Omicron variant.
Researchers from the University of Virginia School of Medicine have developed a non-invasive way to remove faulty brain circuits that could allow doctors to treat debilitating neurological diseases without the need for traditional brain surgery.
According to a study, the changes in the human sex ratio at birth, defined as the percentage of newborn boys has been associated with the presence of air and water pollutants, but are not predictably linked with seasonality or weather.
The South African doctor who first raised an alarm over Omicron states that the new coronavirus strain has significantly more mutations, as compared to the Delta or Beta variants of COVID-19 which can be easily missed if one is not clinically aware of its symptoms.
A new research by Rutgers University has found that the COVID-19 saliva testing kits that include a novel preservative can also be used to measure microscopic organisms in the mouth. This has enabled the study of the relationship between mouth and lung microbes and the SARS-CoV-2 virus that can develop new treatments.
Cost-slashing innovations are underway in the electric power sector and could give electricity the lead over fossil-based combustion fuels in the world's energy supply by mid-century, according to Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK)
When you receive an important file to work on, you keep it safe to remember about it. Similarly, our memories first land in one part of our brain and then shift to another for long-term storage. This process is known as memory consolidation. Kyoto University's Akihiro Goto researched this process using mouse brains in order to manipulate memories.
The pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and BioNTech on Saturday issued a statement stating that they are not sure whether their vaccines would be able to help in the treatment of the new COVID-19 variant 'Omicron'.
The first ever global standard on the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI) was presented by Audrey Azoulay, director-general of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), on Thursday.
