Modeling the restless brain

...r when a person is at rest, doing nothing. The nature of these "resting state fluctuations" is an active topic of research in cognitive neuroscience, with their mysterious origin prompting one prominent researcher to label them the "brain's dark energy," Sporns said. As yet, no one knows why these fluct...

A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...sms by triggering nodulation. The discovery of the nature of the signal molecule itself, which remains to be fully determined, brings a glimpse of future agricultural applications. Many plants live in symbiosis with bacteria, but the mechanisms are known for only a small number of these interactions. Th...

Newly found sensing system enables certain bacteria to resist human immune defenses

...am-negative, with the primary difference being the nature of the bacterial cell wall. Little is known about how gram-positive bacteria—such as those that can lead to food poisoning, skin disorders and toxic shock—avoid being killed by AMPs. AMPs are made by virtually all groups of organisms, including amphi...

Technique monitors thousands of molecules simultaneously

...molecule is the key and the receptor the lock. The nature and shape of molecules that serve as keys tells about the binding requirements of the receptor. Traditionally, probing a receptor this way has been done by making a library of molecules, treating it with the receptor, washing away any excess receptor...

Role of noise in neurons
