Investigators suggest that brain circuits could unlock new psychiatric treatments

The findings of the studies highlight the complexity of brain inhibitory systems and the importance of taking a subtype-, circuit- and neuronal population-specific approach to develop future therapeutic strategies using cell type-specific drug delivery….

18 Vegan Workout Recipes

A long, long, long time ago when Scott and I were still running and training for marathons, I had a little herbivore-athletic brand I called “Herbisport.” (The logo was so cute, it was my little elephant with sweatbands plus he was holding a dumbbell in his trunk.)

Anyway, I was doing some virtual de-cluttering the other day and came across all the recipes I’d developed for Herbisport (recovery smoothies, DIY energy bars, etc) and thought I’d share them 🙂

Threat of malaria left its mark on the immune system in people with African ancestry

Researchers have identified a genetic difference between people with African and European ancestry that affects how the immune system triggers inflammation. They suspect these differences are rooted in how the immune system evolved and the evolutionary pressure exerted by malaria on ancestors who lived in Africa….

Malaria: Cooperating antibodies enhance immune response

Scientists have studied how the human immune system combats malaria infections. In this study, the researchers discovered a previously unnoticed characteristic of antibodies against the malaria parasite: They can cooperate with each other, thus binding even stronger to the pathogens and improving the immune response. The results, now published in Science, are expected to help develop a more effective vaccine against the disease….

Improved ape genome assemblies provide new insights into human evolution

Higher-quality assemblies of great ape genomes have now been generated without guidance of the human reference genome. They provide a clearer view of genetic differences that arose as humans diverged from other primates. The newest investigation offers the most comprehensive catalog of genetic variants that were gained or lost in different ape lineages. The influence of these variants was explored in brain development, dietary needs and anatomy. A fossil virus found in ape but not human genomes …

Caloric intake and muscle mass at high altitude

New research looks at why a group of young, healthy adults residing at high altitude lost muscle mass while severely underfed and consuming the same high-protein diet that preserved muscle during weight loss at sea level….

Unnecessarily difficult: Physical activity resources for adults are loaded with jargon

Web page articles and other written materials designed to encourage physical activity are often too difficult to be easily read and understood by most US adults, limiting their effectiveness….
