Dr. Samantha Harris discusses the development of three new mouse models in her lab, engineered to target and replace specific myosin binding protein-C paralogs in muscle fibers and impact of their mutations on skeletal and cardiac muscle diseases.
Semaglutide, also known as Ozempic and Wegovy, has become increasingly popular -- but why? Here we discuss the mechanism behind these drugs, how they've become so well known, and what current research says about their long-term effects.
Watch Nisha Charkoudian, PhD for the first event in the 2023 Neurophysiology Series as she summarizes the integrative physiology of responses to exercise-heat stress and discusses implications for athletes and the military.
Discover the future of human cognition with our overview of recent developments in brain-computer interface technology. Read this blog to find out how brain-computer interfaces function, ways they can be utilized, and how a few individuals have personally advanced this burgeoning neuroscientific field.
A recent publication from Singh et al. demonstrate how taurine, an amino acid used widely throughout the body, can improve age-related health outcomes in mice, roundworms, non-human primates, and also highlight how this effect appears to be evolutionarily conserved in humans.
While the overall benefits of exercise have been well documented, what exactly does exercise do for the brain? In this blog, we review two very recent publications that arrived at somewhat conflicting answers to this question.
This episode of Share Science features Oliver Wearing, PhD, as he shares his personal passions and academic journey from reptilian physiology to evaluating cardiovascular function after spinal cord injury.
What can biological age tell us about our health? Is it a fixed number, or can it be reduced? A recent study from Poganik et al. investigates the fluctuations in biological age in response to physiological stress.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a condition that arises from repeated head traumas, and can only be diagnosed after death. Learn more about the history behind this condition, current research, and potential ways to prevent CTE in this blog post, written by one of the Scientist.com STEM NIL Scholarship Winners.
Chemotherapy treatment is incredibly difficult on patient wellbeing, but an unlikely plant-derived substance may yet improve the adverse side effects. In this blog, we discuss the use of CBD as a treatment for side effects like organ damage and drug resistance in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.
