Clearing the Brain Fog: Long COVID and Cognitive Impairment

News, Scientific Articles|

One common post-COVID symptom is brain fog or "COVID fog," which may affect up to 25% of recovered individuals. Given the global prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 and the detrimental impact of such cognitive impairment, the public health implications are considerable. Fernández-Castañeda et al. recently examined the underlying neurological changes associated with COVID fog, which we review in this blog post.

Passive Avoidance Response in Rats: Effects of Handling and Novel Object Recognition

News, Scientific Articles|

Storing aversive memories is important to survival, but learned avoidance responses decrease over time without reinforcement. Since little is known about the mechanisms behind this process, Bengoetxea de Tena et al. evaluated how naive rats respond to a learning and memory task under fear conditions in a recently published study, which we review in this blog post.

Skin-on-Chip for Preclinical Herpes Disease Modeling

News, Scientific Articles|

Organs-on-a-chip are attractive alternatives for bridging the translational gap between preclinical and clinical stages in vaccine development, particularly for herpes simplex virus (HSV). In this blog post, we review an article from Nature Communications on a skin-on-chip device for modeling HSV infection, as well as evaluating immune responses and antiviral drug efficacy (featured image © 2022 Sun et al., licensed under CC BY 4.0).
