Investigation Of Anatomical Similarities And Differences In The Brains

Research used neuroimaging techniques to analyze the brains of more than 3,800 volunteers in different countries. The largest study of its kind ever conducted set out to investigate anatomical similarities and differences in the brains of individuals with different types of epilepsy and to seek markers that could help with prognosis and treatment. The study was published in the journal Brain.

Microscopic Exposes Lethal Blood Infection Therapies

Researchers could observe live and in real-time that the human body responds to often lethal fungal blood infections in the lung. In the study, the fungal infection Candida albicans was introduced to mice or human models of the lung vasculature, and as blood was pumped over that system, researchers recorded using highly sophisticated microscopes. The study was published in Cell Host & Microbe.
