Alcohol use disorder is a diagnosis made when an individual has severe problems related to drinking alcohol. Alcohol use disorder can cause major health, social, and economic problems, and can endanger affected individuals and others through behaviors prompted by impaired decision-making and lowered inhibitions, such as aggression, unprotected sex, or driving while intoxicated. Alcohol use […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: Centre for Genomic Regulation Scientists read the code of life—the genome—as a sequence of letters, but now researchers have also started exploring its three-dimensional organisation. In a paper published in Nature Genetics, an interdisciplinary research team of scientists from the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona, Spain, shows that the three-dimensional organisation of […]Continue Reading ...
In a new study, published in Cell Reports, researchers from Queen Mary University of London used cells derived from urine to take the first step in generating an artificial adrenal gland, which could help develop future treatments for adrenal gland disorders. The adrenal glands, located on the top of each kidney, are responsible for releasing […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists at Royal Holloway, University of London, along with colleagues at UCL, have developed a novel artificial human chromosome which could be used to reverse the genetic defect in muscle stem cells from patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). DMD is a very serious X-chromosome-linked inherited disease in young boys which leads to a debilitating […]Continue Reading ...
The Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP), the premier global, non-profit molecular diagnostics professional society, today published 17 consensus recommendations to help clinical laboratory professionals achieve high-quality sequencing results and deliver better patient care. The report, “Standards and Guidelines for Validating Next Generation Sequencing Bioinformatics Pipelines: A Joint Recommendation of the Association for Molecular Pathology and […]Continue Reading ...
Typically, the right IFG stops the flow of speech, whereas the left one supports it. In people who stutter, these two areas are conversely activated: The right IFG is overactive and shows tightened connections with the frontal aslant tract (FAT), which is a sign of a strengthened movement inhibition. This interrupts the flow of speech […]Continue Reading ...
Implanted endothelial cells (red) contribute to host blood vessels (green), surviving as long as 10 months in mice. Credit: Young-sup Yoon Stem cell researchers at Emory University School of Medicine have made an advance toward having a long-lasting “repair caulk” for blood vessels. The research could form the basis of a treatment for peripheral artery […]Continue Reading ...

Despite efforts the elimination of yaws in a […]Continue Reading ...
Single glial cells that surround and innervate the adult Drosophila nervous system are randomly labeled in different colors. These glia are derived from the very same stem cells that also give rise to the motor neurons that control leg movements.

The causes of opioid addiction are complex. This condition results from a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, some of which have not been identified. Many of the genes that are thought to play a role in opioid addiction are involved in the endogenous opioid system, which is the body’s internal system for regulating […]Continue Reading ...
Sooty mangabey.

To learn how sooty mangabeys achieve this important health feat, a Yerkes National Primate Research Center-led […]Continue Reading ...
Does your daughter forget or misplace things all the time? Is she the classroom helper? Assessment scales for ADHD have tended to use data from boys so the signs of ADHD in girls may not be what you expect.
