Ultrasonic Vocalizations In The California Mouse

Vocal communication between individuals is vital to navigating social situations. Often when we think about vocal communication, we think about speech in humans or song in birds which is used to convey information from one individual to another. However, recently rodents have emerged as an exciting new mammalian experimental model of vocal communication. While rodents

Pinocembrin: A Natural Compound For Treatment Of Acute Intracerebral Hemorrhage And Traumatic Brain Injury

In the past decades, hospital admissions for acute brain injury have continued to rise. For instance, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) are just two subtypes of acute brain injury that have increased in annual incidence without a decrease in mortality. ICH is a type of stroke in which blood accumulates in the

GLY-PRO-GLU Tripeptide Gold Surface Reconstruction Investigated At The Molecular Scale

Biomolecules adsorption at metal surfaces often creates a 2D ordering of the adlayers. The adsorption process can induce in some rare cases the reconstruction of the metal substrate. This phenomenon is less commonly observed, unless upon annealing of the molecule/surface system. In this study, we reported on the drastic room temperature reconstruction of the Au

How Studying The Resting Brain Might Help Us Understand Why Night Owls Are At Increased Risk Of Developing Depression

It is estimated that 322 million people worldwide suffer from major depression every year. Depression is a serious mental health condition that can have debilitating effects on the individual and is a leading cause of disability. Understanding how this condition develops and identifying risk factors are key to developing strategies that work to prevent depression.

Who Will Ask More For Abdominoplasty After Excess Weight Loss?

The increasing incidence of morbid obesity suggests that the quantity of bariatric surgical procedures will continue to increase each year, as many patients who have experienced massive weight loss are left with functional and esthetic consequences as a result of residual, loose skin. However, new research published in the International Journal of Surgery, July 2018, suggests that

Translational Control Of Metabolism Overcomes The Accepted “Transcriptional Theory” Of T Cell Development

The publication of the complete human genome sequence in 2004 has marked the beginning of a new era. Since then, the famous Crick dogma that all genes generate active factors, known as proteins, through an intermediate known as mRNA, has led to the categorization of the mRNAs expressed in virtually all cells of the human

Finding A Renewable And Sustainable Source of Hydrogen: A Computational Look Into A Possible Limiting Intermediate Of Photocatalytic Water Splitting On TiO2

Most of the energy needed to sustain economic growth, since the industrial revolution, is derived from fossil sources: natural gas, coal, and oil. In utilizing these sources in industry, the first process and probably the most important is that of the so-called “reforming” of hydrocarbons. The process at which water in the form of steam
