New Identification Of Brain Stem Cells

A study estimates that the human nervous system is a complex structure that sends electrical signals from the brain to the rest of the body, enabling us to move and think. Unfortunately, when brain cells are damaged by trauma or disease they don't automatically regenerate. This can lead to permanent disability. The study was published in the journal Cell

Postpartum depression Symptoms Persist After NICU Discharge

Young parents who have less education and care for more than one child are more likely to have persistent symptoms of depression that linger six months after their newborn is discharged from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), according to a Children's National Health System research presentation during the Pediatric Academic Societies 2018 annual meeting.

A Huge Molecule In Cell Membranes Is The Lipid Phosphatidylcholine

According to a study, researcher declines that the most abundant molecule in cell membranes is the lipid phosphatidylcholine (PC, commonly known as lecithin), the enzymes responsible for synthesizing it are essential. They used computer simulations to gain insights into how one of these enzymes activates and shuts off PC production. These results could help researchers understand that small changes in this enzyme can lead to conditions like blindness and dwarfism. The study was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
