Researchers have provided experimental proof of a pathway that controls aging, finding that quieting some mobile DNA sequences in roundworms led to a longer life. Not only does the discovery provide a greater understanding of how we age, but it also opens the door to potential applications in biology and medicine.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Aging, anti-aging, Genetics
Scientists have discovered how a unique kind of cell death, due to iron toxicity, creates a snowball effect that advances cognitive decline. With this finding, a whole new approach to treatment could be developed.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Oregon Health and Science University, Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, Brain, Cells, Nerves, Neurological, Neuroscience
A new study has identified a key metabolic pathway that is abnormally activated in people with brain fog, a common symptom of long COVID. The discovery opens the door to developing a way of diagnosing, monitoring and treating people with the condition.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Coronavirus (COVID-19), Brain, metabolism, University of New South Wales
Scientists have found a massive area the size of 1.5 football fields, now dubbed "The Coliseum," which was once a popular thoroughfare to water for multiple species of prehistoric beasts over many generations some 70 million years ago.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: university-of-alaska, Dinosaurs, Fossils, Geology, Geography
UK researchers have, for the first time, identified a genetic pathway in the brain that plays a key role in controlling anxiety, opening the door to the development of more effective treatments in the future.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Brain, Anxiety, MicroRNA, Genetics, University of Bristol, University of Exeter
an external side staircase creates a passage below, where visitors can step away from the urban fabric for a moment of recluse. The post O_building wraps in half-mirrors and nature-infused pathway to open up tokyo urbanscape appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
An incredible study published in Nature has reported the discovery of a novel gut-brain pathway that drives our appetite for fatty foods. The research found cells in our gut sense the presence of fat in food and can directly talk to parts of our brain to make us keep eating.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Fat cells, Diet, Food, Obesity, Brain, Columbia University
Sometimes called the cellular recycling system, lysosomes are tiny structures that break down and clear away molecular waste to keep cells young and fresh. For this reason, they have been implicated in many age-related diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, but a new understanding of the way these organelles repair themselves could lead to new ways to stop such conditions in their
A new study has found an old antipsychotic drug blocks a signaling pathway that has been linked to chronic neuropathic pain. The surprising findings not only point to novel future treatments for pain but reveal an unexpected association between chronic pain and lung cancer.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Pain, Cancer, Genetics, Psychology
New research published in the journal Science reports the discovery of a unique pathway by which bacteria in the gut can directly communicate with neurons in the brain responsible for regulating appetite and body temperature. The novel mechanism adds to our growing understanding of gut-brain communication pathways.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Gut Bacteria, Microbiome, Brain, metabolism is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
