Emotional states can influence movement through connections in an area of the brain called the basal ganglia, researchers have found.
US scientists have utilised an existing antibody drug to pull down the protective wall that surrounds tumours, potentially re-exposing them to the killing power of the immune system.
German researchers have developed a so-called 'retina-on-a-chip', while Australian scientists have captured what is claimed to be the world's most detailed gene map of the retina.
Researchers have grown kidney organoids in the laboratory that could be used to better understand how kidney diseases develop in individual patients.
Created by Australian scientists, the early-stage vaccine was shown to provide substantial protection against tuberculosis in a preclinical laboratory setting.
The first ever chlamydia vaccine to reach phase 1 clinical trials has been found to be safe and able to provoke an immune response.
While carbon monoxide is lethal for humans, microbiologists have found that some pathogens utilise this deadly gas as an energy source when other nutrients are not available.
Inspired by natural products, chemists from the University of Konstanz have developed selective agents that combat infectious diseases while leaving beneficial bacteria alone.
Full-term newborns are able to discriminate between speech sounds and non-speech sounds the day after they are born.
Researchers have identified a specific class of bacteria from the gut that prevents mice from becoming obese, suggesting these same microbes may similarly control weight in people.
Researchers have identified what they claim to be the elusive 'fingerprint' of the immune cells that characterise multiple sclerosis, a chronic autoimmune disease that affects around 2.5 million people.
Cells in the immune system play a role in stimulating the growth and activity of nerve cells in endometriosis, leading to increased sensitivity to pain in the pelvic region.
A study of 303 infants found that different temperament traits are connected with individual microbe genera, microbial diversity and different microbe clusters.
Researchers have mapped the building blocks of the human lungs and airways in asthma patients, creating the first draft human cell atlas of the lung.
WA researchers have used rigorous contamination controls to confirm that exposure to bacteria begins in the womb, laying to rest the longstanding question of whether or not the womb is sterile.
