Computational Method Speeds Mapping of Cell Signaling Networks
...n isolation--they "talk" to each other and work in sync
to process information. What researchers have lacked are the experimental and computing tools to model entire signaling networks at once. This new work should help bridge that gap. Human T-cells--the system Nolan and Lauffenburger's team used to val...
Researchers Identify Cause of Early Bird Sleep Disorder
... however, are constantly bothered by living out of sync
with everyone else's daily schedule. "Some of them would never come to a doctor" to find out what's going on with their sleep pattern, Ptacek said, "because they aren't troubled by it. Often, they have adjusted and accommodated their jobs to match t...
Radiation-armed robot rapidly destroys human lung tumors
...rce (a linear accelerator that produces x-rays) in sync
with the tumor motion. As a result of the unique real-time tumor tracking capabilities of their upgraded CyberKnife, the researchers have established detailed methods for the safe treatment of lung tumors which otherwise couldn't be treated with a ...
Paying attention sets off symphony of cell synchronization
...d their brain waves. The brain waves fluctuated in sync
with flickering stimuli that appeared on a computer screen. At any given time, two target patterns were shown, but subjects were told to pay attention to one and ignore the other. Sometimes the target patterns were fairly dim. At other times they wer...
