Newswise: Scientists Discover Skin Keeps Time Independent of the Brain

Scientists Discover Skin Keeps Time Independent of the Brain

University of Washington School of Medicine

A study published Oct. 10 in Current Biology has now found that a type of opsin known as neuropsin is expressed in the hair follicles of mice and synchronize the skin’s circadian clock to the light-dark cycle, independent of the eyes or brain. This means that skin can sense whether it is day or night even when it’s cultured by itself in a dish. Researchers now want to see if skin heals better if it’s exposed to certain types of light.

Study: First Evidence of Immune Response Targeting Brain Cells in Autism

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

In a paper published in Annals of Neurology, a physician-scientist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and colleagues report the presence of cellular features consistent with an immune response targeting specialized brain cells in more than two thirds of autistic brains analyzed postmortem. These cellular characteristics – not previously observed in autism – lend critical new insight into autism’s origins and could pave the way to improved diagnosis and treatment for people with this disorder.
