Cells That Control Hunger Affect Brain Structure and Function

Summary: AgRP neurons in the hypothalamus play a critical role in shaping the structure and function of the prefrontal cortex in mice. The findings shed light on how the prefrontal cortex is altered in disorders such as schizophrenia. Source: Yale The prefrontal cortex region of the human brain is responsible for a range of complex …

Google’s DeepMind AI Predicts 3D Structure of Nearly Every Protein Known to Science

It wasn’t until 1957 when scientists earned special access to the molecular third dimension.  After 22 years of grueling experimentation, John Kendrew of Cambridge University finally uncovered the 3D structure of a protein. It was a twisted blueprint of myoglobin, the stringy chain of 154 amino acids that helps infuse our muscles with oxygen. As revolutionary …
