Novel device for exploratory imaging enables about 1,000 times more access to brain tissue

Science is examining the brain’s neural activity for applications ranging from innovative therapies for brain-related injuries and disease to computational learning architectures for artificial intelligence and deep neural networks. A research team has developed a tool that lets researchers see more of a live mouse’s brain, to make discoveries that can advance research into the […]

Black women face three-fold increased risk of triple negative breast cancers

The cohort included 29,822 (15 percent) Black women—a group historically understudied in cancer research. Most strikingly, the researchers found that Black women had nearly a three-fold increased risk of triple negative breast cancers, which have a poor prognosis. While it is known that Black women have a higher risk of this type of breast cancer, […]

Yard size does not impact children’s physical activity levels

Yard size does not affect children’s physical activity levels, according to a new study, suggesting outdoor play mightn’t be impacted as cities densify and backyards shrink. The research led by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) and the University of Melbourne, showed no association between yard space and greenness and physical activity, highlighting a child’s […]
