Scientists identify molecular mechanisms behind learning and memory

Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have lower levels of the neuromodulator acetylcholine (ACh) in their brains. Donepezil, an AD drug, increases brain ACh levels and improves AD-associated learning deficits. Now,

Efforts to treat sepsis faster have not resulted in antibiotic overuse

Hospitals and policymakers alike have banded together to improve recognition and treatment of sepsis, a life-threatening reaction to infection, which by some estimates, accounts for 30–50% of all deaths in

Microbial link between Western-style diet and incidence of colorectal cancer uncovered

New research, published in Gastroenterology, builds the case that a Western-style diet—rich in red and processed meat, sugar and refined grains/carbohydrates—is tied to higher risk of colorectal cancer through the

Microscopy technique enables 3D super-resolution nanometer-scale imaging

Over the last two decades, microscopy has seen unprecedented advances in speed and resolution. However, cellular structures are essentially three-dimensional, and conventional super-resolution techniques often lack the necessary resolution in

Prostate cancer hijacks tumor cell biorhythm to evade hormone therapy

Hormone therapy is successful at keeping metastatic prostate cancer under control, but eventually the tumor cells become resistant to it. An unexpected potential solution has now emerged in medicines not
