Science-fiction is becoming science-fact as emerging technologies are increasingly influencing our lives. We are experiencing progress like never before and it is already evident that our civilisation will change so much that its rules and technologies will be incomprehensible to the previous generation.

Understanding how nucleic acids and proteins interact to regulate key cellular processes requires the ability to observe these interactions directly. The dynamic nature of many nucleic acid-protein interactions makes it challenging to study them with traditional bulk methods. Biochemical, molecular or cellular biology approaches yield ensemble- or population-averaged results, which may conceal key short-lived or ...

Protein folding research has been dominated by the assumption that thermodynamics determines protein structure and function. And that when the folding process is compromised, the proteostasis machinery of cells - chaperones, deaggregases, the proteasome - work to restore proteins to their soluble, functional form or degrade them to maintain the cellular pool of proteins in ...

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common movement disorder characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra pars compacta. Accumulating evidence indicates that the interactions between genetic and environmental factors cause PD. Although several monogenic mutations linked to rare familial PD have been identified, other genetic determinants causative for sporadic PD, ...

I will show that continuous optogenetic stimulation of excitatory neurons in visual cortex results in strong gamma-band oscillations, and respective white-noise stimulation reveals gamma-band resonance. Correspondingly, visual stimulation with artificial or natural stimuli induces gamma-band synchronization. Gamma in visual area V4 entails gamma-rhythmic modulation of the gain of spike responses and of behavioral reaction times. ... Read more about "Rhythms for Cognition: Communication through Coherence"
