Parasite makes quick exit when researchers remove the handbrake

Published: Mon, 24 Sep 2018 14:40:49 EDT

Researchers have discovered a way to halt the invasion of the toxoplasmosis-causing parasite into cells, depriving the parasite of a key factor necessary for its growth. The findings are a key step in getting closer to a vaccine to protect pregnant women from the parasite Toxoplasma gondii, which carries a serious risk of miscarriage or birth defects.

Simulations of every woman's breast tissue address delay on enhanced MRI cancer detection

Published: Thu, 20 Sep 2018 10:21:59 EDT

Researchers have simulated how over 20 different breast tissue ratios respond to heat given off by MRIs at higher field strengths than available in hospitals today.

Computational imaging: Looking to immune cell shapes to predict how well body will fight lung cancers

Published: Thu, 20 Sep 2018 10:21:27 EDT

Researchers have discovered how to quickly and accurately predict which lung cancer patients will benefit from chemotherapy by analyzing the arrangement -- not the number -- of cells the body sends out to fight the disease.

Fiber optic sensor measures tiny magnetic fields

Published: Wed, 19 Sep 2018 11:59:04 EDT

Researchers have developed a light-based technique for measuring very weak magnetic fields, such as those produced when neurons fire in the brain.

New method enables accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease

Published: Wed, 19 Sep 2018 11:15:20 EDT

A new brain imaging method can show the spread of specific tau protein depositions, which are unique to cases with Alzheimer's.

AI improves doctors' ability to correctly interpret tests and diagnose lung disease

Published: Tue, 18 Sep 2018 18:05:01 EDT

Artificial intelligence (AI) can be an invaluable aid to help lung doctors interpret respiratory symptoms accurately and make a correct diagnosis, according to new research.

Enhanced 3-D imaging poised to advance treatments for brain diseases

Published: Thu, 13 Sep 2018 11:39:35 EDT

Researchers have developed a combination of commercially available hardware and open-source software, named PySight, which improves rapid 2-D and 3-D imaging of the brain and other tissues.

Computer avatars play a part in dementia detection

Published: Thu, 13 Sep 2018 11:38:44 EDT

Scientists have demonstrated the possibility of detecting dementia from conversations in human-agent interaction. Their research shows how a machine can learn characteristics of sounds of elderly people who answered easy questions from avatars on a computer.

Critical differences in clots that cause a stroke

Published: Wed, 12 Sep 2018 08:12:19 EDT

There are two main treatments for stroke caused by a clot in a blood vessel in the brain. Scientists have discovered that clots have different compositions and depending on where they are located in the brain, administering the clot-busting drug, Alteplase (also known as tPA), can be almost as effective as thrombectomy given sufficient time.

Pain response in babies' brains controlled in 'similar way to adults'

Published: Tue, 11 Sep 2018 13:21:04 EDT

Researchers have identified the neural network that helps control babies' brain activity in response to pain in a similar way to adults. Their findings build on their previous study from 2015, which revealed that newborns experience pain like adults.
