Innovations in 3D printing lead to implantable blood vessels
October 22, 2019 -- Using bioinks formulated from smooth muscle cells from a human aorta and endothelial cells from an umbilical vein, researchers built a biomimetic blood vessel using 3D printing techniques.  Discuss
Night gardeners: Microglia involved in brain plasticity during sleep
October 21, 2019 -- Research from the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) suggests that specific immune cells called microglia – which play a crucial role in reorganizing connections between nerve cells, fighting infection, and repairing damage – are primarily active during sleep. The research, conducted on mouse models, was published in Nature Neuroscience on October 21.  Discuss
New study provides molecular insight into how memory changes with age
October 18, 2019 -- Researchers from King's College London and The Open University add evidence as to why memory in old age is less flexible than in young adulthood. They published research on October 17, in Current Biology.  Discuss
Scientists build a better brain map
October 17, 2019 -- Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory published a new study in Cell, on October 17, that introduces barcoded anatomy resolved by sequencing (BARseq), the next generation of MAPseq.  Discuss
Study shows that Huntington's disease can be slowed by modifying brain cells
October 16, 2019 -- A new study led by researchers at UCLA published in Science Translational Medicine on October 16 found that Huntington's disease (HD) damages astrocytes at the early stages of the disease, contributing to neuropsychiatric symptoms.  Discuss
Software improves the speed of identifying potential new antibiotics
October 16, 2019 -- Computational biologists at Carnegie Mellon University and seven other institutions developed a software tool that can play a high-speed "Match Game" to identify bioactive molecules and microbial genes that produce them so they can be evaluated as new antibiotics and other therapeutic agents. This work was published in Cell Systems on October 16.  Discuss
