New research could help scientists better estimate Earth’s carbon budget

A team led by University of Minnesota researchers have discovered that deep-sea bacteria dissolve carbon-containing rocks, releasing excess carbon into the ocean and atmosphere. The findings will allow scientists to better estimate the amount of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere, the main driver of global warming. The study is published in The ISME Journal: Multidisciplinary Journal of […]

Key brain molecule may play role in many brain disorders, suggests study

A team, led by scientists at the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Medicine, have identified a molecule called microRNA-29 as a powerful controller of brain maturation in mammals. Deleting microRNA-29 in mice caused problems very similar to those seen in autism, epilepsy, and other neurodevelopmental conditions. The results, published […]

Scientists offer treatment hope of fertility for early menopausal women

Menopause typically signals the end of a woman’s ability to become pregnant. However, in a small new study drove by The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), a novel approach of administering platelet-rich plasma and gonadotropins near the ovarian follicles is showing promise in restoring ovarian function. As more women look to build their careers before […]

Researchers discover astonishing self-organization skills of brain

A new study drove by Max Planck Society uncovered how brain structures can maintain function and stable dynamics even in unusual conditions. Their results might lay the foundations for better understanding and treating conditions like epilepsy and autism. The neurons in our brains are connected with each other, forming small functional units called […]

Blood glucose outcomes improved by tubeless automated insulin delivery system

The findings of a recent study suggests that people who suffer from type 1 diabetes can improve their blood sugar control while reducing time with low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia by using Insulet Corporation’s Omnipod 5 Automated Insulin Delivery System, in comparison to their standard insulin therapy. The results from an industry-sponsored […]
