Researchers use AI to rescue embryos from brain defects by re-engineering cellular voltage patterns.

March 9, 2018

Improper neural patterning during brain development leads to serious disorders such as open neural tube defects, brain malformations, and susceptibility to autism and degenerative disorders like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. There are currently no clinically approved interventions for brain patterning disorders. therefore, finding regenerative and repair strategies for brain patterning is a critical unmet need in medicine.  Now, a study Read more

Science:Mapping the United Federation of Planets: An Astronomer’s Guide to the Galaxy

March 7, 2018

Mapping the United Federation of Planets: An Astronomer’s Guide to the Galaxy Mia Bovill, Space Telescope Science Institute How big is Star Trek’s United Federation of Planets? How far did the various starship captains travel? Where exactly are the Klingons? To answer these questions, we need to leave the future spacefaring of the Enterprise behind and ask questions of astronomers in the here and now of 21st century Earth. Where is the Earth located within our Milky Way? What are the overall shape and scale of the galaxy? And just how can we decipher the Milky Way’s features when we are stuck at one location inside it? Come for the Star Trek, and stay to hear the centuries long, ongoing, and arduous tale of how a “minor bipedal species” is mapping the Milky Way.
