How Education may Stave Off Cognitive Decline

Washington, DC — Prefrontal brain regions linked to higher educational attainment are characterized by increased expression of genes involved in neurotransmission and immunity, finds a study of healthy...

Unjamming Genome After DNA Damage

State College, PA — A protein complex that is involved in nearly every step in the regulatory control of gene expression in cells has now been shown also to play a key role in clearing potential traffic...

Protein Police Keep Immune System in Check

Okinawa Prefecture, Japan — Our immune systems defend our bodies against dangerous invaders and help clean up when damage is done. But if our bold protectors are left unsupervised, they sometimes do...
