For people who are in the workforce already, the added burden of unpaid caregiving for a family member or loved one may lead to insomnia and other sleep issues, according to a study published in the journal Sleep.
A new study published in the journal Neuropharmacology shows that psilocybin can help ease the symptoms of depression among persons who have not been responding adequately to the treatment of depression. It is seen to improve the responsiveness of the brain to emotions in these patients.
Researchers have reported that in vaccination, a certain subpopulation of dendritic cells is vital to triggering the body's adaptive immune system. The findings have important implications for vaccine delivery, as the usual method, intramuscular injection is likely not the most effective way to target those dendritic cells. The study findings published in Science Immunology.
Researchers suggests that an injection of nanoparticles may be able to help fight the immune system when it goes haywire, researchers at the University of Michigan have shown. The nanoparticles divert immune cells that cause inflammation away from an injury site. Inflammation is a double-edged sword. When it works, it helps the body heal and fights off infections.

Implanted devices send targeted electrical stimulation to the nervous system to interfere with abnormal brain activity, and it is commonly assumed that neurons are the only important brain cells that need to be stimulated by these devices. However, research published in Nature Biomedical Engineering reveals that it may also be important to target the supportive glial cells surrounding the neurons.
