LIAI scientists make important finding on cytomegalovirus transmission

...al studies with the IL-10 suppression and the OX40 enhancement combined into one treatment. "We tested them separately, but they may well be even more effective when combined," Croft said....

Scientists genetically engineer tomatoes with enhanced folate content

...for the natural addition of folate to diet through enhancement of the folate content of fruits and vegetables." The vitamin is commonly found in leafy green vegetables like spinach, but few people eat enough produce to get the suggested amount of folate. So, in 1998, the Food and Drug Administration made it m...

Wired for sound: How the brain senses visual illusions

...e second illusory flash was also marked by a rapid enhancement of processing in the auditory cortex of the brain. By observing the auditory boost, the researchers could predict when subjects would report seeing the visual illusion of a second flash. "Our results provide evidence that perception of the illu...

Carnegie Mellon University research shows how sensory-deprived brain compensates

...test study is the first to show such an impressive enhancement of brain activity in an animal with sensory loss. Losing sight, hearing, taste, smell or touch are common disabling side effects of traumatic brain injury and stroke. In her study, Barth recorded brain activity in mice with various degrees of whis...

Experience affects new neuron survival in adult brain; study sheds light on learning, memory

The hippocampus contains the dentate gyrus. After injecting mice with a chemical used to mark proliferating c...

Drug treatment improves learning in mice with Down syndrome symptoms, Stanford/Packard study shows

...fter some brief, inconclusive studies on cognition enhancement in elderly or mentally impaired people in the 1950s, PTZ has been primarily used for the study of epilepsy in animals. In 1982 the FDA withdrew approval for the use of PTZ in humans because no clear clinical benefit had been established. That is, unt...

Proteins necessary for brain development found to be critical for long-term memory

...s of the growth factors were prevented, long-term enhancement of the connections between the brain cells in the reflex circuit normally induced by the shock treatment was also blocked. "We would never have expected that the secretion of these growth factors in response to serotonin would be critical for long-...

Replacing insulin is top-ranked breakthrough foreseen for health in developing world

"Whether developing countries choose to build capacity in regenerative medicine themselves or whether they wait to adopt therapies developed...

Silver bullet: UGA researchers use laser, nanotechnology to rapidly detect viruses

...norods are arranged at an 86-degree angle. "The enhancement factors are extraordinary," Dluhy said. "And the nice thing about this fabrication methodology is that it's very easy to implement, it's very cheap and it's very reproducible." Tripp said the technique is so powerful that it has the potential to d...

Got inexpensive contrast agent? Milk plays new role in imaging

Shah-Patel, M.D., a radiology resident at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York City. “In addition, we found that patients are more willing to drink milk because it is part o...

Snakes' virtual glasses, leopard spots and all-optical transistors

...kind of snake brain firmware - that provides image enhancement as though the snakes were wearing virtual corrective lenses. Because snakes' brains are small, the physicists kept their model of an image enhancing network simple. They discovered that even a crude network dramatically improves infrared imaging - wh...

Coming soon: 3-D imaging that flies 'through' and 'around' cancer

...ng. "This one case shows the potential synergistic enhancement of both PET and CT when rendered into three dimensions," said Quon. PET and CT are standard imaging tools that can be used to pinpoint the location of cancer within the body. When PET is used to image cancer, a radiopharmaceutical (such as fluorode...

Drug triggers body's mechanism to reverse aging effect on memory process

...rain cells is enhanced and memory is encoded. This enhancement is responsible for long-term cognitive function, higher learning and the ability to reason. With age, deficits in LTP emerge, and learning and memory loss occurs. Significantly, restoration of LTP was found in the middle-aged rats' brains even afte...

Experimental drug reverses key cognitive deficits, pathology in Alzheimer's

The researchers concluded that "the results of the present study show the remarkable therapeutic potential of AF267B in attenuating the major hallmark neuropathological lesions relevant to AD and in restoring cognitive func...

HIV vaccine takes different tack to boosting immune response

... said Chen. "In most cases, we found a significant enhancement in both antibody and T-cell response by inhibiting SOCS1." Chen hopes this immunization approach of inhibiting SOCS1 will help develop more effective prophylactic as well as therapeutic vaccines. Therapeutic vaccines may contribute to the long-term ...

Activation of a protein solidifies fear memory in the brain
