For the first time, researchers have discovered a possible biomarker for long-term learning. The ability to move newly learned knowledge into long-term memory is crucial to allow past experiences to help influence future actions.

The author job is to insert 10 microliters of fluid into a microplate and watch as crystals grow. Ten microliters amount to a single droplet from his pipette, so Arnold must be exceedingly precise which is a challenge, because he is floating inside the International Space Station. Arnold repeats the process 96 times, filling small cells in the microplate with a solution mixed to grow protein crystals. He also tests ways to mix the solution with crystal-seeding material.
Doctors are voicing concern that a lack of provincial funding for palliative care is pushing patients at the end of their lives to opt for doctor-assisted suicide instead. Since the province’s medical aid in dying law came into effect in 2016, Quebec doctors say access to palliative care has decreased while requests for medical aid in dying have increased. The group said patients have told them that they are choosing assisted dying because they can’t find adequate palliative care services.
A study assess that the profession works in risky, sometimes dangerous situations yet is treated differently to other emergency service colleagues. Social workers prioritise people who are most marginalised, desperate and often unhelped, overlooked and angry; as a consequence, they work often in risky, sometimes dangerous situations. Yet they are treated differently to other emergency service colleagues.
According to a new study, a statistically significant and clinically meaningful treatment effect was seen in patients aged 65 to 74 years who had treatment-resistant depression (TRD) when esketamine nasal spray was added to their oral antidepressant in comparison with patients treated with placebo plus an oral antidepressant.
Researchers conducted a study, they have produced snapshots of the 'protein factories' of the cell. Electron microscopy images provide important insights into ribosome assembly. Their findings could set us on the path towards a new class of antibiotics. The study was published in Molecular Cell.
Researchers have worried that giving too much intravenous fluid to children with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) may contribute to brain swelling and injury, and even death. Now, after a national study that examined more than a thousand patients with DKA. They have shown that fluid infusion does not cause brain injury in children with DKA. The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
Researchers have pinpointed a particular neuropeptide associated with transmitting itch signals in mice with atopic dermatitis. The work sheds further light on the pathways involved in transmitting itch sensations from the peripheral to the central nervous system. The study was published in Acta Dermato-Venereologica.
Researchers focus on religious involvement is associated with better health and longer life expectancies, researchers have virtually ignored possible links between religious involvement and sleep. The study was published in Sleep Health: Journal of the National Sleep Foundation.
According to a new study, researchers change the structures of neurons themselves. It seems that psychedelics do more than simply alter perception.
