Learning from the ‘mammalian diving reflex,’ UB researchers have successfully tested face cooling to prevent steep drops in blood pressure during simulated blood loss, a prehospital intervention that EMTs and battlefield medics could one day use to save lives.

Newly Discovered Gene Variants Link Innate Immunity and Alzheimer’s Disease

SchellenbergNatGenmouseplaqueJuly2017.jpg

Three new gene variants, found in a genome wide association study of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), point to the brain’s immune cells in the onset of the disorder. These genes encode three proteins that are found in microglia, cells that are part of the brain’s injury response system.

New Study of Brain Circuits Finds Key Links to Symptoms of Depression

Scientists have linked specific wiring in the brain to distinct behavioral symptoms of depression. In a study published in Cell, researchers at UC San Diego found brain circuits tied to feelings of despair and helplessness and were able to alleviate and even reverse such symptoms in mice studies.

Agent Clears Toxic Proteins, Reduces Inflammation and Improves Cognition in Neurodegeneration Models

Researchers have found cell receptors abnormally overexpressed in post-mortem brains of those with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and that they can be inhibited in animal models to clear toxic protein buildup, reduce brain inflammation, and improve cognitive performance.

Artificial Intelligence Helps Build Brain Atlas of Fly Behavior

Cover1.png

Scientists at HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus created comprehensive brain maps linking different groups of neurons to specific behaviors, using a machine-learning program that annotated more than 225 days of videos of flies – a feat that would have taken humans some 3,800 years.

First Michigan Proton Center Begins Treating Cancer Patients

Proton therapy is a high-tech alternative to X-ray radiation. It offers greater precision to destroy cancerous cells, sparing adjacent healthy tissue with fewer side effects. Proton therapy uses atomic particles, traveling up to two-thirds the speed of light, to fight cancer. Beaumont’s center is one of just 25 operational proton therapy centers in the U.S.

A Big Step? Trial Will Test Improvisational Dance as Dementia Therapy

Depending on what generation you belong to, the term “improvisational dance” may conjure up images of beatniks grooving to the beat of bongos in a darkened coffeehouse or the black-clad Dieter gyrating to techno pop in a Sprockets sketch on “Saturday Night Live”.
