Cerebrospinal Fluid Shows Promise as Autism Biomarker

Researchers from the UC Davis MIND Institute, University of North Carolina (UNC) and other institutions have found that altered distribution of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in high-risk infants can predict whether they will develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The study appears today in the journal Biological Psychiatry.

Iron Dissolved by Air Pollution May Increase Ocean Potential to Trap Carbon

Iron particles generated by cities and industry are being dissolved by man-made air pollution and washed into the sea – potentially increasing the amount of greenhouse gases that the world’s oceans can absorb, a new study suggests.

2 Billion People Don't Have Access to Modern Financial Tools

Darden Dean Scott C. Beardsley interviews Shamina Singh, president of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, which addresses such questions. One answer: “data philanthropy.” With 2 billion people across the globe facing practical barriers to a formal financial system, putting an end to information inequality is an integral step toward inclusive economic growth. Mastercard and others have made a commitment to close the data divide and give millions of consumers and small businesses access to the global economy.

Study Finds New Mechanism to Control Information Flow in the Brain

Specialized nerve cells, known as somatostatin-expressing (Sst) interneurons, in the outer part of the mammalian brain (or cerebral cortex) — play a key role in controlling how information flows in the brain when it is awake and alert. This is the finding of a study published online in Science March 2 by a team of neuroscientists at NYU Langone Medical Center and its Neuroscience Institute.

Slow Economic Growth Projected to Continue

The national and state economies will continue the slow growth pattern in 2017 that has continued for the past seven-plus years, but North Carolina will need to focus on productivity growth this year, said UNC Charlotte economist John Connaughton. Connaughton emphasized during his quarterly talk that productivity growth should be the focus of the state in 2017.
