Brain discovery suggests source of lifelong behavioral issues
University of Virginia Health System

Improper removal of faulty brain cells during neurodevelopment may cause lifelong behavioral issues, new research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine suggests. The finding also could have important implications for a wide range of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Brown Fat Can Burn Energy in an Unexpected Way
Joslin Diabetes Center

Joslin researchers have found a pathway that can boost the production of (heat-generating, fat-burning) brown fat cells without also creating unhelpful white fat cells. This finding suggests that the pathway the Joslin team uncovered might offer a solution to that challenge.
