A team of researchers has identified a previously unknown function of histones, which allows for an improved understanding of how cells protect and repair DNA damages. This breakthrough may eventually result in better treatments for diseases such as cancer.
A new study now shows that some symptoms of depression play a much bigger role than others, and that the symptoms listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) may not be the most useful ones.
New research says that blackouts and near drowning events may signal an increased risk of sudden death. Such events indicate long QT syndrome (LQTS), a genetic heart condition that can be undetected or misdiagnosed as epilepsy or a panic attack.
A new study has found that inhibiting a family of enzymes inside hair follicles restores hair growth. In experiments with mouse and human hair follicles, researchers found Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors promote rapid hair growth when applied to the skin.
New research has shed light on the genetic changes that occur in people as they age. The study found 1,450 genes that are linked to aging that may be used to predict if a person will likely suffer age-related diseases.
A new study has verified whether there really exist a gender gap in career centrality — the importance of one’s career to their identity. Gender differences were found only minimal and were caused by professional demands, gender role beliefs and cultural e…
Using neuroimaging, researchers found music listening styles may influence the emotion control of individuals. The study finds that especially men who process negative feelings with music react negatively to aggressive and sad music.
Researchers have found that Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that cause plague, was spreading nearly 3,000 years before the previous earliest known date. This finding might help us learn how dangerous infectious diseases evolve.
