Reversibility of Friedreich's ataxia in mice
Reversibility of Friedreich’s ataxia in mice
Friedreich's ataxia is an inherited disease that causes damage to the nervous system and a loss of coordination that typically progresses to muscle weakness. It can begin causing symptoms in childhood or early adulthood and, over time, it can also lead to vision loss and diabetes. Scientists seeking a better understanding of the disease have tried for years to replicate the disease's symptoms and progression in laboratory mice, but until recently have been largely unsuccessful.

New brain mapping technique highlights relationship between connectivity and IQ
New brain mapping technique highlights relationship between connectivity and IQ
A new and relatively simple technique for mapping the wiring of the brain has shown a correlation between how well connected an individual's brain regions are and their intelligence, say researchers at the University of Cambridge.

Imaging technique could be 'new ballgame' in drug development
Imaging technique could be ’new ballgame’ in drug development
Biochemistry and structural biology are surprisingly — at least to the uninitiated — visual fields. This is especially true in the study of proteins. Scientists like to see the structure of proteins within cells to help them truly understand how they work, how they don't work or how they can be modified to work as they should.

Diabetes drug “significantly reverses memory loss” in mice with Alzheimer's
Diabetes drug “significantly reverses memory loss” in mice with Alzheimer’s
A drug developed for diabetes could be used to treat Alzheimer's after scientists found it “significantly reversed memory loss” in mice through a triple method of action. The research, published in Brain Research , could bring substantial improvements in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease through the use of a drug originally created to treat type 2 diabetes.

Engineers: Bone Marrow Transplant Stem Cells Can 'Swim' Upstream
Engineers: Bone Marrow Transplant Stem Cells Can ’Swim’ Upstream
When a cancer patient receives a bone marrow transplant, time is of the essence. Healthy stem cells, which can restart the production of blood cells and immune system components after a patient's own are compromised, need to make their way from the circulatory system into the bones as quickly as possible.

Standardizing perovskite aging measurements
Standardizing perovskite aging measurements
EPFL scientists have produced a data-driven proposal for standardizing the measurements of perovskite solar cell stability and degradation. Published in Nature Energy , the work aims to create consensus in the field and overcome one of the major hurdles on the way to commercializing perovskite photovoltaics.

’Gut instinct’ trumps ’evidence’ when voting
People are more likely to go with their gut and trust personal opinions irrespective of evidence that might be presented during an election or referendum campaign, according to an important new economic study. A new paper, published by our Department of Economics , shows that voters tend to retain strong attachment to their own opinions even when this is challenged by evidence.
