Many people who have dieted are familiar with the yo-yo effect: after the diet, the kilos are quickly put back on. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research and Harvard Medical School have now shown in mice that communication in the brain changes during a diet: The nerve cells that mediate the feeling of hunger receive stronger signals, so that the mice eat significantly more after the diet and gain weight more quickly. In the long term, these findings could help developing drugs to prevent this amplification and help to maintain a reduced body weight after dieting.
We all know the images of Southeast Asia's vast rice fields neatly terraced against the hills. In Europe too, there used to be terraces, mostly bordered by hedges, which have been overtaken as agricultural practices have been scaled up.
Gene therapy approach to boost ’cold shock protein’ in the brain without cooling protects mice against neurodegenerative disease
Most of the time, when someone gets a cut, scrape, burn, or other wound, the body takes care of itself and heals on its own. But this is not always the case. Diabetes can interfere with the healing process and create wounds that will not go away and that could become infected and fester.
Pathogen mapped for the first time - to understand evolution and potential treatments. A parasite which has devastating impacts on agriculture and human health is the first pathogen to have its proteins located and mapped within its cells - providing clues to their function and helping to identify potential drug targets.
Pantonium's on-demand transit model is helping cities accelerate their energy transition. By Stephanie Longeway University Relations Have you ever seen an empty bus drive by? It can be a common occurrence especially during off-peak hours or in less populated areas.
An international team of scientists has for the first time detected neutrinos created by a particle collider. The discovery, announced March 19 by the Forward Search Experiment - or FASER collaboration - at the 57th Rencontres de Moriond Electroweak and Unified Theories conference in Italy, promises to deepen scientists- understanding of the nature of neutrinos, which are the most abundant particle in the cosmos.
