Mar. 5, 2020 — In a study of epilepsy patients, researchers monitored the electrical activity of thousands of individual brain cells, called neurons, as patients took memory tests. They found that the firing … read more
Feb. 26, 2020 — A comparison of normal and germ-free mice revealed that as much as 70 percent of a mouse’s gut chemistry is determined by its gut microbiome. Even in distant organs, such as the uterus or the brain, approximately 20 percent of molecules were different in the mice with … read more
Feb. 24, 2020 — In search of new ways to sequence human genomes and read critical alterations in DNA, researchers say they have successfully used the gene cutting tool CRISPR to make cuts in DNA around lengthy tumor … read more
Mar. 12, 2020 — A new study reveals that the language people use on Facebook subtly changes before they make a visit to the emergency department (ED). A team of researchers provides more evidence that social media is often an unseen signal of medical distress and could be used to better understand the contexts in which patients seek care, such as during the current COVID-19 … read more

Mar. 12, 2020 — Researchers of the University of Basel have developed a new method with which individual isolated molecules can be studied precisely — without destroying the molecule or even influencing its quantum state. This highly sensitive technique for probing molecules is widely applicable and paves the way for a range of new applications in the fields of quantum science, spectroscopy and … read more
Feb. 20, 2020 — A new study documented the earliest known interbreeding event between ancient human populations — a group known as the ‘super-archaics’ in Eurasia interbred with a Neanderthal-Denisovan ancestor … read more
Mar. 12, 2020 — Scientists present important new findings regarding the origin of oceans and life on Earth. Measurements on the oldest preserved mantle rocks from Greenland show that — contrary to previous assumptions — the elements necessary for the evolution of life were not delivered to Earth until very late in the planet’s … read more
