New lung cell type identified. Thoughts health innovators?

There are two classifications of cells in the human body, namely, germ cells which are used to make sperm and eggs, and somatic cells that make up every other cell in the body including lung cells.  The lung epithelium is composed of a variety of cellular…

Study identifies previously unknown role of microglia in neurodevelopment. Thoughts health innovators?

The brain consists of two major types of cells, neurons and glia cells, which provide support and protection for neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems.  While neurons have been studied for more than a century, extensive glial research has…

Researchers identify the control mechanism of synapse formation. Thoughts health innovators?

The brain controls all functions of the body and interprets information from the outside world. Intelligence, creativity, emotion, and memory are a few of the many things governed by the brain.  The brain is made up of two types of cells, namely, neurons…

Controlling a single brain chemical expands window for learning language, music in animal model. Thoughts health innovators?

Learning language or music is usually a breeze for children, however, as even young adults know, that capacity declines dramatically with age.  Now, a study from researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital shows that restricting a key chemical…

Magnetised bacteriophages successfully punch through biofilms to reach targets. Thoughts health innovators?

A vast number of the pathogens are grouped into communities called biofilms. Biofilms are where bacteria join together on a surface and start to form a protective matrix around their group.  One common example of a biofilm is dental plaque, a slimy…

Two new network of neurons in the brainstem identified in appetite regulation. Thoughts health innovators?

Hunger, driven by negative energy balance, elicits the craving and consumption of food. Whilst this response is in part mediated by neurons in the hypothalamus, the role of specific cell types in other brain regions is less well-defined.  Now, a study…

Neuron-like cells provide nervous system with window into the gut. Thoughts health innovators?

Dietary, microbial, and inflammatory factors modulate the gut-brain information highway, ranging from metabolism to cognition. The gut epithelium is a principal site for detecting such agents, however, precisely how it communicates with neural elements is…
