Electronic devices are made possible thanks to a group of elements often referred to as rare-Earth metals, but as the name suggests, these may be in limited supply and are relatively expensive. Now, a team of scientists has found a way to combine much more common elements into electronically-useful compounds, which could find their way into tunable lighting and solar panels... Continue Rea
An important and rigorous new animal study led by scientists at Johns Hopkins University has demonstrated how the misfolded proteins thought to cause Parkinson's disease may originate in the gut, and travel up to the brain via the vagus nerve. This research builds on a compelling body of evidence pointing to a gut-brain connection in the disease and hints at possible new treatment pathways
A new study from King's College London upends conventional thinking about the origins of Parkinson's disease in the brain. The research reveals distinct changes in the brain's serotonin system can be identified up to 20 years before any Parkinson's symptoms appear, suggesting a new biomarker to detect the disease at its earliest stages...

Through a string of interesting studies scientists have been able to probe the links between blood flow to the brain and declining cognitive function. One particularly promising and recent example demonstrated how a drug commonly used for high blood pressure could be used to treat diseases like Parkinson's and dementia. Scientists in the Netherlands have now uncovered another candidate, fi
Despite some promising research, there is currently no one reliable cure for vitiligo. There may be new hope, however, as a recent study has shown an existing medication to be quite effective at repigmenting the affected skin...
