The absence of a certain serotonin receptor supports the reduction of previously learned fear responses.
WHO formulations can be quickly and easily prepared at home.
New insights into the function of mitochondria reveal interfaces between the nervous and immune systems.
Bronchial constriction is what makes many lung diseases like asthma so dangerous. Researchers have discovered a new signalling pathway that causes the airways to widen.
The ever-growing burden of mental illness poses an increasing challenge for society, and the development of psychological interventions via the traditional route is simply unable to keep pace.
If a fungus has to take a circuitous route to achieve cellular respiration, it lacks the energy to build fruiting bodies.
Systematic review of 32 studies with 1.3 million participants uncovers new connections between the thyroid and the heart.
At the end of a working day, nurses have covered quite a few kilometres. They would like to save themselves some of the trips. Voice assistants might help do just that.
A psychology team at RUB is interested in how work processes can be optimised in teams that work in different locations. Among other things, the researchers are experimenting with avatars.
Researchers have recreated the brain functions of mice and humans using computers. Artificial intelligences could learn from this.
Understanding the exact origins of neurological diseases is essential for the development of therapies. New findings could provide approaches for more effective diagnostic and therapeutic strategies
A technical aid that takes over routine tasks or helps make difficult decisions – this is the dream! But not for everyone.
Time off. Computer off. But the mind keeps going round and round in circles. And when the mobile phone lights up seductively, you’re quickly back at work. Marcel Kern is researching how to escape this spiral.

Who would have thought it of bacteria: they are capable of sneaking up on other microorganisms to kill and eat them.
Cosmic rays seem to surround us everywhere. This is precisely what makes it difficult to find its sources. It would be helpful if we could trace their path through space. A new programme can help.
Scientists can use laser radiation to print tiny structures with high precision. This approach enables them to mimic the superpowers of animals and plants and makes them accessible for engineering applications.
Compared to the energy efficiency of avian brains, mammals are no match.
It’s surprisingly easy to feel happier and healthier – and it’s free.
Today, when an algorithm identifies a tumour in a tissue sample, it doesn’t reveal how it arrived at this result. And that’s not very trustworthy. Researchers in Bochum are therefore pursuing a new approach.
