Technique Visualizes Brain Tumors During Surgery

Technique Visualizes Brain Tumors During Surgery A new method can distinguish tumors from normal brain tissue in living mice. With further refinement, the approach could help doctors remove brain tumors with great precision. Recognizing the difference between tumors and normal brain tissue during surgery is a major challenge. Removing healthy tissue can cause neurologic problems, [...]

Brain Circuit Affects Visual Development

Brain Circuit Affects Visual Development A mouse study revealed a circuit within the developing visual system that helps dictate how the eyes connect to the brain. The findings have implications for treating amblyopia, or lazy eye, the most common cause of visual impairment in childhood. A retinotopic map shows the connections of the eyes to [...]

Bacteria Trigger Nerve Cells to Cause Pain

Bacteria Trigger Nerve Cells to Cause Pain Researchers have found that bacteria can directly stimulate sensory neurons to produce pain and suppress inflammation. The finding may lead to better treatments for painful bacterial infections. A tooth abscess, urinary tract infection, or other type of bacterial infection can cause intense pain. The pain is often accompanied [...]

Insights Into Genetic Causes of Childhood Epilepsies

Insights Into Genetic Causes of Childhood Epilepsies A new study linked 2 novel genes to severe forms of childhood epilepsies. The results provide opportunities for exploring the origins and treatment of the disorders. Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders caused by misfiring nerve cells in the brain. When the normal pattern of nerve activity [...]

Blood Markers May Signal Suicide Risk

Blood Markers May Signal Suicide Risk Scientists identified signs in blood that might help doctors identify people with suicidal feelings and thoughts. The discovery could lead to more effective interventions. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death nationwide and the 3rd leading cause of death among adolescents. It can be prevented when a person [...]

Cancer Chromosome Abnormalities Visualized in Living Cells

Cancer Chromosome Abnormalities Visualized in Living Cells Researchers have observed for the first time how broken ends of chromosomes incorrectly reattach to each other—an abnormality common in cancer cells. Chromosomes are structures inside our cells that are made up of tightly coiled DNA. The DNA contains genes, which instruct the cell how to make specific [...]

Genes Help Predict Response to Alcoholism Treatment

Genes Help Predict Response to Alcoholism Treatment A set of 5 genetic variants can help predict whether an experimental treatment for alcohol dependence will succeed. The finding is another step toward personalized therapy for alcoholism. The chemical messenger serotonin plays a key role in mediating the rewarding effects of alcohol. A protein called the serotonin [...]
