New research has found that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The finding means the textbooks will have to be rewritten.
Uber along with Mothers Against Drunk Driving released a study earlier this year taking credit for a decline in drunken driving-related car crashes among drivers under 30. It was called out for not producing enough evidence to make the connection.

Leukocyte (white blood cell) telomere length in study participants up to 115 years of age. Statistical regression lines belonging to these groups are indicated by the same color as the data. (credit: Yasumichi Arai et al./EBioMedicine) According scientists at Newcastle University’s Institute for Ageing in the U.K. and Keio University School of Medicine, they say they have cracked […]
August 2008, Tony Wyss-Coray waited for his lab’s weekly meeting to begin at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Palo Alto, California. Wyss-Coray, a professor of neurology at Stanford University, was leading a young group of researchers who studied ageing and neurodegeneration. As a rule, the gatherings were forgettable affairs – the incremental nature of scientific […]
Scientists first grew mini-hearts in a lab. Then they 3D printed skin. Now scientists have taken “body on a chip” to a whole new level.
Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in Israel and the University of Colorado have developed a dynamic anti-inflammatory “smart” drug that can target specific sites in the body and could enhance the body’s natural ability to fight infection while reducing side effects.
A small new study finds that depression can be predicted just from smartphone data.
