Virtual reality study will assess link between navigation and Alzheimer’s disease
Researchers at UCL will use a virtual reality game to assess how well people navigate their surroundings to try and spot early signs of Alzheimer's disease. The new study is recruiting healthy volunteers over the aged over 40 to play a game called the 'Cave Crystal Quest' for  two 90-minute sessions at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in London.

Link between maternal diabetes and child ADHD may not be causal
While children of mothers with diabetes and more likely to develop ADHD, a new global analysis co-led by UCL and University of Hong Kong researchers suggests the relationship is likely not causal. The authors of the new Nature Medicine study, using data from over 3.6 million mother-baby pairs across three continents, say the link is likely due to genetic and familial factors that are shared between people with diabetes and ADHD.

Trust levels in the police are falling in England
The University of Glasgow has contributed to research that finds only 40% of people in England trust their police force. The study, commissioned by the Economic and Social Research Council (ERSC), spotlights London's Metropolitan Police as the area where women trust the least - and Conservative voters have higher levels of trust in the force.

Training AI models to answer ’what if’’ questions could improve medical treatments
Machines can learn not only to make predictions, but to handle causal relationships. An international research team shows how this could make medical treatments safer, more efficient, and more personalised. Artificial intelligence techniques can be helpful for multiple medical applications, such as radiology or oncology, where the ability to recognise patterns in large volumes of data is vital.

Scientists analyse the potential of erythropoietin (EPO) as a treatment for neurological and psychiatric diseases
Researchers from eleven centres in Spain, the United States and Germany, including the University of Valencia (UV), INCLIVA and Carlos III Health Institute, have analysed the effect on the human brain of erythropoietin (EPO), a hormone secreted mainly by the kidneys, as well as its potential as therapy for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases.

Energy scientists unravel the mystery of gold's glow
Energy scientists unravel the mystery of gold's glow
Researchers have developed the first comprehensive model of the quantum-mechanical effects behind photoluminescence in thin gold films; a discovery that could drive the development of solar fuels and batteries. Luminescence, or the emission of photons by a substance exposed to light, has been known to occur in semiconductor materials like silicon for hundreds of years.

Problem in microscopy solved after decades
Problem in microscopy solved after decades
Examining tissues, cells, and proteins under a microscope helps us prevent and combat diseases. To study this, we need to precisely determine the dimensions of the biological structure. However, a biological sample may appear flatter under the light microscope than it actually is. Researchers at Delft University of Technology have now demonstrated for the first time that this distortion is not constant, contrary to what many scientists have assumed for decades.

Link between childhood maltreatment and adult substance abuse
University of Queensland researchers have found people maltreated as children are 3 times more likely to be admitted to hospital for alcohol and substance use by the time they're 40, compared to people who were not maltreated. Dr Claudia Bull from UQ's Faculty of Medicine led a study which analysed data from more than 6,000 children born in Brisbane's Mater Mother's Hospital between 1981 and 1983.

Understanding bacteria protection in order to break through it
Yale researchers have uncovered new details on how bacteria like E. coli build their protective barriers, which will inform new antibiotic development. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are a growing problem when it comes to combatting infections. Bacteria that have an additional protective layer to their cell walls - a type known as "Gram-negative" in reference to the staining method used to identify it - are especially difficult to fight.

Surprising reversal in quantum systems
Surprising reversal in quantum systems
Researchers at ETH Zurich have studied topological effects in an artificial solid, making surprising observations. The new insights into topological pumping could be used for quantum technologies in the future. In principle, one shouldn't compare apples to oranges. However, in topology, which is a branch of mathematics, one has to do just that.

Mess is best: disordered structure of battery-like devices improves performance
Mess is best: disordered structure of battery-like devices improves performance
The energy density of supercapacitors - battery-like devices that can charge in seconds or a few minutes - can be improved by increasing the 'messiness' of their internal structure. This could be a turning point for a field that's been stuck for a little while. Alex Forse Researchers led by the University of Cambridge used experimental and computer modelling techniques to study the porous carbon electrodes used in supercapacitors.

COSINUS searches for dark matter
In the COSINUS research project, an international team involving TU Wien and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) is searching for evidence of dark matter. The large-scale experiment is now starting in Italy . How can we understand dark matter? It probably makes up around 85% of the mass in the universe, but what it is and what it consists of is still one of the biggest and most difficult questions in modern physics.

Scientists grow human mini-lungs as animal alternative for nanomaterial safety testing
Human mini-lungs grown by University of Manchester scientists mimic the response of animals when exposed to certain nanomaterials. The study at the University's NanoCell Biology Lab at the Centre for Nanotechnology in Medicine is published in the influential journal nanotoday . Though not expected to replace animal models completely, human organoids could soon lead to significant reductions in research animal numbers, the team led by cell biologist and nanotoxicologist Dr Sandra Vranic argues.

New study on Amazonia’s fire crises urges action ahead of the next burning season
In response to the escalating fire crises in the Amazon, a timely study has revealed alarming shortcomings in the emergency fire bans implemented by the Brazilian Government. Initially seen as a promising solution in 2019, these bans have consistently fallen short in subsequent years, revealing a pressing need for strategies that address the underlying causes of each type of fire.
