Acting as natural computers, our brains contain trillions of cells to store memory and control the body’s functions and emotions. Around one in ten of the countless cells in the … Continue Reading Microglia filmed shaping synapses for the first time.
Synthetic biology, the manufacture of previously unseen biologics, proffers unlimited potential to manipulate or rebuild imperfect processes within the body on the nanoscale. Mimicking biological processes by engineering nanostructures for … Continue Reading Tiny implants for single-cells are functional in vivo.
Asthma, accompanied by lung inflammation, bronchoconstriction, and airway hyper-responsiveness, is a significant public health burden. Currently, asthma treatments such as anticholinergics target the hypersensitive nerves connecting the brain to parasympathetic … Continue Reading Researchers identify neuronal colonies responsible for ‘itchiness’ in the throats of mice.
Researchers use AI to rescue embryos from brain defects by re-engineering cellular voltage patterns.
Improper neural patterning during brain development leads to serious disorders such as open neural tube defects, brain malformations, and susceptibility to autism or degenerative disorders. There are currently no clinically … Continue Reading Researchers use AI to rescue embryos from brain defects by re-engineering cellular voltage patterns.
Blood vessels are the parts of the circulatory system responsible for transporting oxygen-rich red blood cells, nutrients, and immune cells throughout the body, with defects in these transport systems shown … Continue Reading Researchers identify elusive stem cells capale of producing fully-functional blood vessels.
