Researchers in Sydney have discovered a set of peacekeepers – immune cells in the outer layers of our skin that stop us from attacking friendly bacteria… > full story.
A new study compared early British charts to modern coral habitat maps to understand changes to reef environments. The latest research connecting DHA synthesis to estrogen production, and consequentially brain health, backs up further the old adage that a daily intake of fish oil is good for you.
According to the researchers, the character best connected to the other characters, and therefore the most influential, is the small but mighty lion, Tyrion Lannister.

All of the macaques receiving the combination of both FTC and the high dosage of tenofovir were protected from infection – whether they were from the group that received these drugs daily, or only around the time of exposure to infection.
Researchers are showing how ideas from computer science could revolutionize brain research. When netrin-1 was given to mice that have a gene for Alzheimer’s disease their symptoms were reversed, and the sticky amyloid was reduced. Researchers are developing micro-electrical stimulators for individuals with spinal cord injuries… > full story.
