Deciphering the emergence of neuronal diversity

Neuroscientists have analyzed the diversity of inhibitory interneurons during the developmental period surrounding birth. They have discovered the emergence of three main sub-groups of interneurons by decoding the expression of cell-type specific genes as well as their exact, and often unexpected, location in the cortex. These results should help researchers in discovering how psychiatric-related genetic disturbances impact the emergence of neuronal sub-types and how to design novel cell-type specific interventions.

School bullying linked to lower academic achievement, research finds

A study that tracked hundreds of children from kindergarten through high school found that chronic or increasing levels of bullying were related to lower academic achievement, a dislike of school and low confidence by students in their own academic abilities, according to new research.

Bone markers as screening strategy for patient adherence to osteoporosis medications

A new position paper proposes measuring specific bone turnover markers (BTMs) in patients who have initiated use of oral bisphosphonates for postmenopausal osteoporosis as a practical way to identify low adherence. BTMs can reflect the early effect of the drug on bone tissue. If low response is detected shortly after treatment begins, this may indicate low adherence or point to underlying causes of impaired response to medication.

Can big data help cancer patients avoid ER visits?

What if doctors could look into a crystal ball and predict which of their patients might be at risk of getting sick enough to go to the emergency room? For at least one group of patients, that’s exactly what researchers are trying to do.

Using big data to understand the body's response to viral attack

An enzyme found in many bacteria, including the bacterium that gives us strep throat, has given humankind a cheap and effective tool with which to edit our own genes. This technology, called CRISPR, is also being used to understand how the immune system responds to a viral attack.
