Quantum technology for cancer imaging

Tracing the metabolism of tumor cells using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has not been feasible in routine clinical settings hitherto. Now, an interdisciplinary research team including the Technical University of Munich ...

The role of the cerebellum in absence seizures

Stimulation of certain cerebellar areas could help combat absence seizures. However, what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the brain in this form of epilepsy and how exactly stimulation has an effect is not ...

Leg muscle action assists blood flow independently of age

Chronic lower-limb edema (CLE)—the permanent accumulation of fluid in the leg—often occurs in elderly people. The condition leads to various physical and mental problems, including difficulty in walking or moving, fatigue ...

Digging deep for differences in Duchenne muscular dystrophy

A UT Southwestern research team has cataloged gene activity in the skeletal muscle of mice, comparing healthy animals to those carrying a genetic mutation that causes Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) in humans. The findings, ...

Study reveals surprising variability of muscle cells

Usually, each cell has exactly one nucleus. But the cells of our skeletal muscles are different: These long, fibrous cells have a comparatively large cytoplasm that contains hundreds of nuclei. But up to now, we have known ...

Schizophrenia: when the thalamus misleads the ear

There is an extremely high probability that individuals with 22q11.2 micro deletion syndrome—a rare genetic disorder—will develop schizophrenia together with one of its most common symptoms, auditory hallucinations. Scientists ...

Muscle memory discovery ends 'use it or lose it' dogma

The old adage "use it or lose it" tells us: if you stop using your muscles, they'll shrink. Until recently, scientists thought this meant that nuclei—the cell control centers that build and maintain muscle fibers—are ...
