Fragile X Study Shows Normal Neurons That Interact Poorly

Neurons in mice afflicted with the genetic defect that causes Fragile X syndrome (FXS) appear similar to those in healthy mice, but these neurons fail to interact normally, resulting in the long-known cognitive impairments, shows a new study by a team of neuroscientists.

The research is in Neuron. (full access paywall)

First Look at Pupil Size in Sleeping Mice Yields Surprises

"We found that pupil size rhythmically fluctuates during sleep," says Daniel Huber of the University of Geneva in Switzerland. "Intriguingly, these pupil fluctuations follow the sleep-related brain activity so closely that they can indicate with high accuracy the exact stage of sleep--the smaller the pupil, the deeper the sleep."

The research is in Current Biology. (full open access)

Why A Scientific Study Was Published With A One-Word Abstract

A study Abstract is a summary of a scientific study (such as methods, results, etc...), usually placed before the beginning of the study article in the journal in which it gets published. Abstracts are short, typically under 200-words in length. However, they are also meant to give a sufficient overview of the most important points of the study, and are therefore usually no less than 100-150 words in length, and it can be a challenge to fit all the necessary information within the maximum length permitted. Even the very shortest of journal article abstracts are rarely less than 2-3 sentences in length.

So, how did an article with a 1-word Abstract get published the journal Seismological Research Letters? Suffice it to say, this is almost unheard of in the history of the sciences. You'll have to read the article linked below to learn all the details, but in a nutshell, the researcher's question and the dataset used to answer it were such that a 1-word Abstract was actually appropriate. The lesson, or moral-of-the-story if you prefer, is that what matters most in the sciences are the questions we ask and the data we use to answer them.

The First American CRISPR Trial in Humans Will Target Cancer

"CRISPR is currently humanity’s most effective and efficient gene-editing tool, and the technology is no longer just limited to editing plants or laboratory animals. In November 2016, Chinese scientists actually tested CRISPR in a human, and now, a human CRISPR trial is about to begin in the United States.

In June 2016, an advisory board of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) gave doctors from the University of Pennsylvania Health System (Penn Medicine), led by Edward Stadtmauer, the initial approval needed to begin human CRISPR trials. According to a post in a directory of ongoing clinical tests, the team is now almost ready to begin their trial..."
