Study finds that decisions individuals make during learning greatly influence how well the brain retains information.
The Center for Structural Genomics of Infectious Diseases has revealed the crystal structure of Enterococcus faecalis protein EF1143, a previously uncharacterized protein that is important for the growth of this life-threatening antibiotic-resistant pathogen.
The Disterhoft lab has illustrated how neuronal activity varies in the pre-frontal cortex as the brain shifts from attention to recollection of long-term memory.
According to a new study, memory rewrites the past with current information, updating your recollections with new experiences.
Paper published in the Journal of Dental Research shows that nanodiamonds could serve as non-invasive delivery vehicles of growth factors to bone.
Research by Seth Corey, MD, MPH, professor in pediatrics-hematology, oncology, and stem cell transplantation and cell and molecular biology, was recently published.
Published in Developmental Cell, the Mitchell Lab’s discovery could someday affect scientists’ understanding of the way centriole duplication goes awry in cancer development.
Published in Anesthesiology, Eugene Silinsky, PhD, has found that calcium channels, and not a depletion of neurotransmitters as previously thought, are responsible for the decreased response in muscles treated by neuromuscular blockers. The finding could prove helpful in developing new therapies for a host of neuromuscular diseases.
Published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, the lab of Kathleen Green, PhD, has discovered desmoglein 1’s role in promoting the skin’s differentiation program.
