12:36 PM | Evidence indicates that VSELs from human adult tissues are multipotent
Rare, very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs) isolated from human adult tissues could provide a new source for developing regenerative therapies to repair complex tissues damaged by disease or trauma. The ability of these most-primitive, multipotent stem cells to differentiate into bone, neurons, connective tissue, and other cell types, and the proper criteria for identifying and isolating VSELs, are described in two new papers published in Stem Cells and Development, a peer-reviewed […]

12:22 PM | New hope for the treatment of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Kevin EgganHarvard stem cell researchers have discovered that a recently approved medication for epilepsy might be a meaningful treatment for patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, a uniformly fatal neurodegenerative disorder. The researchers are now collaborating with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to design an initial clinical trial testing the safety of the treatment in ALS patients.The investigators all caution that a great […]

12:09 PM | Cell-surface receptor offers promising breakthrough for patients with pancreatic cancer
Liang XuCreditPancreatic cancer rates in the U.S. have been on the rise over the past decade, and the disease takes a very heavy toll. The American Cancer Society estimates that in the last year alone about 45,220 people were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, while 38,460 died of the illness.Numbers like this are of course discouraging. However, a researcher at the University of Kansas is striving to develop new hope for pancreatic cancer patients.Liang Xu, Ph.D. member of the KU Cancer […]

3:06 AM | Diet and the Biological Differences between Races
     Many groups of people have developed in isolated regions around the earth. These groups have evolved according to their environment. For example, Dark skinned people evolved to protect against vitamin B9 deficiency.[19]    For thousands of years, the cultures of different races ate the same native food and had their own way of life. The effect the food caused wasn't immediate, it eventually got into the genes via epigenetics.Flickr @ sarit_arora    […]

2:00 AM | Resonant Brain: How you "feel" music
Foot taps. Head nods. You might smile. Or Cry. You might get goose bumps. You might feel sadness, joy or even reverence. For a second, the face of someone you seldom think about flashes. You close your eyes to get closer. You sing along.  Loudly.  You feel a kinship with the person now staring from the adjoining car. Surely they approve. They do not.  What on Earth is happening to you?  Neurologically, you are having a strong emotional reaction to structured […]

2:00 AM | Facebook See, Facebook Do
Think of the last time you visited a restaurant. How was the service? Was the waiter or waitress smiling? Could you pick up on their mood?  Now think carefully. At the end, was the amount of gratuity offered influenced by how he/she made you feel? Of course it was. “Service with a smile” is a social contagion phenomenon similar to “Monkey See, Monkey Do,” whereby the emotional relevant stimuli is mimicked among members during a face-to-face interaction.  […]

Communication is essential to any successful relationship, and insect relationships are no different. And, as in human relationships, much of this communication is non-verbal.  Chemical cues in the form of pheromones help females of many insect species decide when to mate who to make with and, when the deed is done, other chemicals let them know … Continue reading →
