Team led by Carnegie Mellon University scientist finds first evidence of a living memory trace

... over time. Galán then used advanced mathematical techniques to process the images and create a matrix of the extent (or amplitude) of neuronal excitation and inhibition within glomeruli. He retrieved a spatial pattern of synchronized, correlated activity ?the memory trace ?from what appeared to be random fluc...

Cells from amniotic fluid used to tissue-engineer a new trachea

...ou want." Last year, Fauza reported using similar techniques in newborn lambs to repair congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), or a hole in the diaphragm that separates the lungs from the visceral organs. If the hole is large enough, the stomach and other visceral organs can end up in the chest cavity, crowdi...

Free-energy theory borne out in large-scale protein folding

...ding on a computer, Clementi and Das relied on the techniques of statistical mechanics, building up an overall picture of MLAc folding based upon statistical approximations of molecular events. On the experimental side, Wittung-Stafshede, Matthews and Wilson prepared samples of MLAc and added urea to cause the...

Synthetic Protein Eases Arthritis Symptoms in Mice

... its usual task. The scientists used a variety of techniques (including injection of TNF-alpha) to induce arthritis symptoms in mice. Researchers also injected some of the animals with lab-made PLAD (P60 PLAD). “We found that P60 PLAD protein powerfully inhibited the symptoms of TNF-alpha-induced arthritis,?sa...

Marathon of nano-sprinters

...ew theory can be investigated in experiments using techniques which have been developed for single motors. In fact, preliminary ex-periments at the Max Planck Institute in Potsdam agree with the theoretical predictions. Likewise, the quantitative theory should also be useful in order to design biomimetic transp...

Microarray technology for tailoring breast cancer therapy

...ndividual patients indicates a need to develop new techniques for better prediction of how patients will respond to adjuvant treatments. The researchers suggest that the technique of DNA microarray analysis could be developed to help breast cancer patients who do not benefit from adjuvant therapy, and avoid pai...

Harnessing genomic research

...netics Ltd are miniaturising established molecular techniques and combining them with novel assays to develop a hand-held 'chip' that will allow doctors to identify specific bacteria in patient samples. In the future this chip could be used to for rapid diagnosis of dangerous diseases such as MRSA infection and...

What can change in the brain? Electrical synapses, research shows

...reated neurons with two different drugs. All three techniques either activated or blocked metabotropic glutamate receptors or mGluRs, a type of neural trigger that responds to the amino acid glutamate, a trans-mitter molecule in the brain. The result: a long-lasting, 20 to 30 percent reduction in electrical syn...

New U. of Colorado at Boulder flu chip may help combat future epidemics, pandemics

While commercial tests like rapid antigen testing can detect influenza in less than an hour, none provide genetic information about v...

Technique offers new view of dynamic biological landscape

...searchers at the University of Toronto. Previous techniques for analyzing epistatic interactions -- how the activity of one gene affects that of another -- involved altering single genes and analyzing their impact on growth in combination with all other genes in the yeast genome. "The one-to-one method has be...
