Research in field mice under conditions simulating a natural environment reveals the different strategies used by females and males in creating social hierarchies
A new competition to stop aging with prizes of 101 million dollars
Toxic proteins accumulate in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. In the familial Alzheimer's patients, the accumulation mechanism is clear since there is a circumstantial relationship between the mutations and the identity of the defective proteins. In the random disease, on the other hand, the cause of the accumulation of proteins
Significant progress towards personalized medicine in the field of psychiatry, with the help of a helmet that induces electromagnetic stimulation of the brain.
Professor Hermona Sorek, one of the world's leading researchers of gene expression in the brain, was able to find, in collaboration with her research colleagues, a molecular mechanism that occurs in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, which does not occur in men and which explains the acceleration
A story about a protein that doesn't feel electric voltage
C wonders: How is it that time sometimes stands still and sometimes it runs?
The scientists were able to predict political behavior just by looking at an fMRI brain scan and published in the rigorous scientific journal -PNAS
Stem cells derived from the placenta are able to reach damaged tissues in the brains of drug addicts and initiate a rehabilitation process in them. The innovative treatment may solve one of the most difficult challenges in the field of detoxification: the difficulty of
A new study links a daily cycle in brain temperature and survival after traumatic brain injury
More precisely a cognitive decline such as that which occurs between the ages of 50 and 70, which is also equivalent to ten IQ points
Researchers found for the first time that bats navigate during the day using a combination of excellent vision and locating the echoes in their environment
Technion researchers have discovered proteins in our bodies that are able to prevent processes that cause neurodegenerative diseases
Dana asks: Why does tickling make us laugh and why can't we tickle ourselves? Evolution gives an answer to this question as well
The institute's scientists located a molecule that irreversibly attaches to a protein that contributes to the development of malignant tumors. Their findings may lead to the creation of a new cancer drug
Researchers at the Hebrew University and the Hadassah Medical Center have developed a method of anesthesia that will allow Parkinson's patients to undergo surgery that significantly alleviates the disease even in a state of confusion. Prof. Hagai Bergman: "This is a significant development for patients up to this day
A new neural code for navigating large spaces was revealed in the "bat tunnel" at the Weizmann Institute of Science
Weizmann Institute of Science scientists have developed a research tool that will shed new light on communication pathways between nerve cells in the brain
The researchers found that the activation process of stem cells in the brain responsible for the production of neurons (nerve cells) is not random but ordered and coordinated. According to them, the findings are of great importance for understanding the normal development of the brain.
A new article by Dr. Miki Ben Dor and Prof. Ran Barkai, researchers from the Department of Archeology offers a unifying explanation for the cumulative physiological changes and social behavior of humans since the appearance of humans about two million years ago
"The conversation is always about what the dog contributes to man, and there are even opinions that accuse humanity of exploiting other species. The innovative research findings of CLEVER DOG LAB and TECH4ANIMALS imply that even
Guide RNA fragments, which until recently were known as stages of breakdown of the guide RNA on the way to their elimination from the body, were discovered in a new study led by Prof. Hermona Sorek from the Hebrew University, as molecules of great importance for preventing the collapse of the immune system following
If bats can hear and detect obstacles, why do they still sometimes crash into walls?
