Early, late stages of degenerative diseases are distinct
Two-phase theory applies to diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, muscle atrophy Rice University biochemists Michael Stern and James McNew have studied how neurodegeneration kills cells. They've conducted countless experiments over more than a decade, and they've summarized all they've learned in a simple diagram they hope may change how doctors perceive and treat degenerative diseases as varied as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and muscle atrophy.

Fish carcasses deliver toxic mercury pollution to the deepest ocean trenches
Fish carcasses deliver toxic mercury pollution to the deepest ocean trenches
The sinking carcasses of fish from near-surface waters deliver toxic mercury pollution to the most remote and inaccessible parts of the world's oceans, including the deepest spot of them all: the 36,000-foot-deep Mariana Trench in the northwest Pacific. And most of that mercury began its long journey to the deep-sea trenches as atmospheric emissions from coal-fired power plants, mining operations, cement factories, incinerators and other human activities.

When sperm fall by the wayside
When sperm fall by the wayside
In fairy tales, the king's son usually has to solve three tasks in order to win the princess's hand. This, however, is nothing compared to the challenges which await sperm on its way to the egg - or, increasingly, which spell failure. According to a number of studies and reports in the media, male fertility is in danger.

Queensland-made proteins and sophisticated antibody test for COVID-19 detection
Locally made coronavirus proteins produced in a state-of-the-art laboratory in Brisbane are proving highly useful in a sophisticated blood test for COVID-19. The University of Queensland's Protein Expression Facility (PEF) partnered with the Public Health Virology team at Forensic and Scientific Services (FSS), Queensland Health to develop SARS-CoV-2 viral proteins These synthetic proteins can be used in a blood test to safely screen patient antibodies for prior exposure to COVID-19.

Building artificial neural networks inspired by the brain
Building artificial neural networks inspired by the brain
The requirements of real biological neural networks are modest compared to the complex deep neural networks used in machine learning, which come with substantial memory and energy demands. The Zenke group have developed a new method in machine learning called Neural Tangent Transfer to make a sparse neural network which performs almost as well as densely connected deep neural network on various learning tasks, but at a heavily reduced computing cost.
