Ocean’s ‘seasonal memory’ affects Arctic climate change
Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT)

Researchers found out that the Arctic does not lose ice uniformly. Different seasonal patterns are at play depending on region: From the early 2000s, the ice cover in the Eurasian Arctic has been shrinking even in the winter period, while the American region only lost ice in the summer. The team explains this in terms of seasonal memory: a response of the winter ice cover to the atmospheric conditions in the previous summer.

Astronomers find quasars are not nailed to the sky
Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT)

Until recently, quasars were thought to have essentially fixed positions in the sky. While near-Earth objects move along complex trajectories, quasars are so remote that they were believed to offer stable and reliable reference points for use in navigation and plate tectonics research. Now, an international team of astrophysicists featuring researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology has found that quasars are not entirely motionless and explained this behavior.

Open-source solution: Researchers 3D-print system for optical cardiography
Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT)

Researchers from the George Washington University and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology have developed a solution for multiparametric optical mapping of the heart’s electrical activity. This technique is a useful tool for enhancing our understanding of the mechanisms behind cardiac arrhythmias. Arrhythmia causes your heart to beat too quickly, too slowly or erratically. Hijacking the heart’s vital rhythm and pumping function can have serious consequences like a stroke or cardiac arrest.

Study reveals structure of 2nd human cannabinoid receptor
Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT)

There are two cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the human body that can be targeted to alleviate certain pathological conditions, including chronic pain. While the CB1 receptors are mostly found in the nervous system and are responsible for psychoactive effects, the CB2 receptors are predominantly present in the immune system. Studies indicate that CB2 is a promising target for immunotherapy, as well as treating inflammatory and neuropathic pain, and neurodegenerative diseases. It has also been shown that molecules blocking CB2 can reduce tumor growth.
