A new study shown that neuroscientists have found new evidence on how distinct memories of similar events are represented in the brain. A previous misconception of how such memories are stored in the hippocampus a part of the brain crucial for memory and understanding space. The study was published in the journal Neuron.

Researchers have combined cutting-edge cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) with computational molecular modeling to produce a near atomic-resolution model of the interaction between microtubules crucial components of eukaryotic cell ultrastructure and microtubule-associated proteins called tau. The study was published in the journal Science.
According to a study, researchers includes extended range of vision (ERV) intraocular lens (IOL) targeted to achieve micro-monovision shows superior range of visual acuity and independence from glasses compared to the monofocal IOL targeted to achieve emmetropia. This study is the first to compare the extended range of vision (ERV) intraocular lens (IOL) targeted at micro?monovision to a monofocal targeted at binocular emmetropia. The study was published in Clinical & Experimental Ophthalmology.
Smoking during pregnancy has well-documented negative effects on many health issues in infants. Researchers at the University at Buffalo Research Institute have found that prenatal marijuana use also can have consequences on infants' weight and behavior.
In a breakthrough that could one day help individuals with cognitive impairment, researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) identified a specific receptor related to the neurotransmitter serotonin that could be targeted with drugs to boost memory.
A new experimental method permits the X-ray analysis of amyloids, a class of large, filamentous biomolecules which are an important hallmark of diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
A study developed a new machine learning tool that can detect whether emerging strains of the bacterium, Salmonella are more likely to cause dangerous bloodstream infections rather than food poisoning has been developed. The tool, created by a scientist at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, they greatly speeds up the process for identifying the genetic changes underlying new invasive types of Salmonella that are of public health concern. The study was published in PLOS Genetics.
