Both individual nerve cells and large neuronal assemblies appear to be relevant for spatial navigation. But what’s the relationship between both?
Precious metal nanoparticles of platinum and gold are excellent catalysts. But they are expensive and rare. This new method makes it possible to save material.
“The theoretical possibilities seem almost too good to be true,” says researcher Tobias Löffler.
Two major studies with promising antibodies have recently failed – possibly because they have been administered too late. A new very early-detection test gives rise to hope.
Since they are so tiny, it is difficult to investigate single nanoparticles. However, this is exactly what researchers are aiming for in order to tailor their properties. A novel approach: particle at the stick.
The causes of the disease are for the most part obscure. Researchers intend to expose them using cerebral organoids grown from stem cells.
Nothing immediately evokes memories like odours. Two neuroscientists have examined why olfaction plays a special role in memory.
The key to a long life for bioelectrodes lies in an oxygen-free environment.
When the fear of spiders or heights gets so extreme that it interferes with everyday life, it often makes sense to undergo behavioural therapy. The approach works quite well, and it could become even more efficient.
Researchers from Bochum and Berlin figured out in detail how an ion channel is activated following exposure to light – a milestone in the understanding of optogenetic tools.
Time and patience are crucial in order to work with the eccentric corvids. Still, they are among the most intelligent birds in the avian kingdom.
The network aims to raise the international visibility and facilitates networking with female researchers.
The liaison office in Russia celebrates its tenth anniversary with two new collaborations and a Science Day.
Students attending Antje Klinge’s courses don’t learn sport in the traditional sense of the word. Rather, they learn a lot about themselves.
In engineering sciences, the first semesters in particular are an endurance test for students. The dropout rates are high. Still, this might yet change.
So-called spin lasers may potentially accelerate data transfer in optical fibre cables to a considerable extent, while reducing energy consumption at the same time.
Brain tumour treatment with Bevacizumab may affect the function of the hippocampus.
It is difficult to convert carbon dioxide or nitrogen oxides into useful or harmless substances. Wolfgang Schuhmann wants to find a way and is being helped to do so by the EU.
Neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s or Parkinson’s disease are associated with misfolded and aggregated proteins. Researchers have discovered a new mechanism used by cells to protect themselves.
An extremely fast reproducing virus variant is to blame for the therapy resistance of hepatitis E. Still, it has now helped researchers create a cell culture model.
