Signature brain activity in three-month-old infants has been used to predicted symptoms of autism spectrum disorder that wouldn't be visible until later in life.
New fathers are flooded with prolactin — the same chemical found in breastfeeding mothers — which unlocks the paternal instinct and helps to make them better dads.
US researchers aimed to determine whether a 28-day period of disrupted sleep changed the gut microbiota in rats.
The COVID-19 vaccine trial, which has produced positive indications about its potential effectiveness and manufacturability, is being expanded to an older demographic.
Researchers have identified mechanisms leading to the functional deterioration of the immune system in response to severe viral infections, such as HIV or COVID-19.
Intravacc has published the phase I study results of its vaccine candidate for respiratory syncytial virus — a major cause of lower respiratory tract infections.
Scientists have uncovered four new subtypes of cells within triple negative breast cancer, which contain promising new therapeutic targets for the disease.
Scientists developed a synthetic peptide that can make multidrug-resistant bacteria sensitive to antibiotics again when used together with traditional antibiotics.
Scientists have demonstrated that one particularly prevalent pattern of brain activity, called alpha waves, strongly relates to the body's susceptibility or resilience to pain.
Electrical activity in hypothalamic circuits during REM sleep is essential to maintain a stable feeding behaviour in mammals.
UK researchers have revealed that tumours can evade the immune system by telling immune cells to produce immunosuppressive steroids.
Our brains are wired to retain information that relates to the context in which highly significant events occurred. This mechanism also underlies drug addiction.
Researchers suggest that medieval methods using everyday ingredients could help solve the growing problem of antibiotic resistance.
Researchers have identified brain circuitry that plays a key role in the behavioural differences that characterise autism spectrum disorder.
The Lancet has published early results from two promising new SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 vaccine candidates, one being trialled in the UK and the other in China.
