( Researchers develop 'game-changing' blood test for stroke detection
May 17th 2024, 11:15

Stroke is the leading cause of disability worldwide and the second leading cause of death, but the right early intervention can prevent severe consequences. Scientists developed a new test by combining blood-based biomarkers with a clinical score to identify patients experiencing large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke with high accuracy.

( B cells drive responses of other immune cells, and can be modified to prevent Multiple Sclerosis symptoms
May 16th 2024, 16:05

B cells can control responses of myeloid cells through the release of particular cytokines (small proteins that control the growth and activity of cells in the immune system), challenging the prevailing view that T cells are the principle orchestrators of immune responses. In individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), abnormally active respiration in B cells drives pro-inflammatory responses of myeloid cells and T cells, leading them to attack the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers, and leading to nerve damage that causes symptoms of MS.

( Under stress, an observer is more likely to help the victim than to punish the perpetrator
May 16th 2024, 16:05

Being stressed while witnessing injustice may push your brain towards altruism, according to a new study.

( Access to gardens and citizen science helps encourage conservation among children, study shows
May 15th 2024, 16:42

Access to gardens and citizen science projects at school can help promote pro-conservation behaviour among pupils, a new study shows.

( Eurasian jays can use 'mental time travel' like humans, study finds
May 15th 2024, 16:42

Eurasian jays can remember incidental details of past events, which is characteristic of episodic memory in humans, according to a new study.

( Singing researchers find cross-cultural patterns in music and language
May 15th 2024, 16:42

Are acoustic features of music and spoken language shared across cultures? Researchers recorded themselves performing traditional music and speaking in their native language. In all 50+ languages, the rhythms of songs and instrumental melodies were slower than those of speech, while the pitches were higher and more stable.

( What motivates preschoolers to prepare for the future
May 14th 2024, 14:14

Adults spend an average of 59 times a day thinking about the future. This helps them to cope with upcoming challenges. But what do children do?

( Giving lessons to your teenage-self could boost your wellbeing
May 14th 2024, 14:13

Asking young adults to advise their younger selves could have a positive impact on their self-esteem, resilience and mental health.

( Study identifies genetic link between inflammatory bowel disease and Parkinson's disease
May 13th 2024, 20:22

Researchers have made a significant discovery, identifying genetic connections between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and Parkinson's disease (PD). Their study highlights the potential for joint therapeutic strategies to target these two challenging disorders. The team used advanced genomic analysis techniques to investigate the genetic overlap between IBD and PD. Their findings point to mutations in the LRRK2 gene as a common element linking both conditions and identify novel genes that are likely to be affected in people experiencing both IBD and PD.
